The Cavs are hoping to bring in Dante Exum for a workout and an interview before Thursday's draft.

The Cavs are extremely unlikely to take Exum at number one, but their numerous reported trade offers with top-six teams mean they could get a chance to draft him at 3-6 if they come to a deal. Owner Dan Gilbert said his team is unified on their selection at the top of the draft, which doesn't mean much at all. Exum is almost certainly going in the first six picks of the draft.

Coach Doc Rivers said he's hoping Austin Rivers (hamstring) can make it back for the start of the playoffs.

When describing the hamstring strain, the coach said it's "a pretty good one." It sounds like Rivers is not going to play during the regular season due to the injury he suffered on Wednesday night. That means more minutes should be going to J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford. Plus, coach Doc Rivers may add Wes Johnson into the mix or give some run to Luc Mbah a Moute.

Ivica Zubac (right high ankle sprain) will not return to Thursday's game against the Wolves.

X-rays were negative for the injury Zubac suffered after just two minutes of action. He went straight to the locker room and chances are he could be missing more time. The Lakers have a back-to-back set starting on Saturday, so consider Zubac very questionable for that game. If he can't go, Tarik Black figures to benefit the most, but he's not a great fantasy option. High-ankle sprains usually take weeks to heal, so Zubac's owners may want to consider dropping him.
Mar 30 - 8:35 PM

Leandro Barbosa (hamstring) is a game-time decision to face the Clippers on Thursday.

We probably won't get an update on Barbosa here, but for now assume he's not going to play. If he is out, Jarell Eddie and Ronnie Price would play more.
Mar 30 - 8:23 PM

Devin Booker (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Clippers on Thursday.

The Suns are right in the thick of a lottery-ball chase with the Lakers, so they may just hold out their best player. Booker has been dealing with some soreness from a couple weeks, so sitting would be for a legitimate reason. If he's out, Jarell Eddie would be in the rotation while T.J. Warren and plenty of Suns would get more shots.
Mar 30 - 8:22 PM

Richard Jefferson (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday against the Bulls.

He missed practice on Wednesday and the Cavs will just hold him out. Jefferson plays both forward spots, so there could be more minutes going to J.R. Smith or Iman Shumpert at the three and Channing Frye at the four.
Mar 30 - 6:36 PM

Cristiano Felicio (tailbone) is available to play against the Cavs on Thursday.

He has been expected to play all day and should be back after missing the last three games. The Bulls have missed Felicio on defense and giving up 70 paint points to the 76ers on Friday was a clear sign. If Felicio is a full go, Robin Lopez could lose a couple minutes while Joffrey Lauvergne should lose minutes. Most fantasy owners can ignore this situation.
Mar 30 - 6:22 PM

Robert Covington (right knee) will not make the trip for games on Friday and Sunday as doctors continue to evaluate results of his MRI.

He's already missed one game with his right knee soreness and had an MRI on Wednesday. Considering the 76ers are in the mix for the No. 4 to No. 8 spot in the lottery, they may just hold Covington out to get a longer look at Justin Anderson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. Covington's fantasy owners may have to consider dropping him while Anderson makes for a solid pickup the rest of the week.
Mar 30 - 4:08 PM

James Harden (left wrist) said he'll play on Thursday against the Blazers.

He had his shooting wrist wrapped at shootaround and he has been playing through it since Mar. 18 when he took a nasty spill at Denver. "It will get better but if I keep banging on it and keep falling on it then it's going to keep going back too square one," Harden said Thursday morning. "I try to limit banging on it and keeping it away from contact, it's kinda hard because it's my left hand. I do a lot with my left hand." For now, his fantasy owners can plug him in there as he attempts to go for MVP.

Will Barton is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets due to foot soreness.

Barton has seen his minutes drop with Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari healthy, so this new foot issue will give his owners even more incentive to drop him. If Barton sits on Friday, Jamal Murray could get a nice bump in minutes off the bench, but standard-league owners should probably look elsewhere.
Mar 30 - 1:37 PM

Brandon Ingram (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Wolves.

While he was listed as questionable, coach Luke Walton made it sound like he didn't have a chance of playing in this one. The Lakers aren't considering shutting him down, so his next chance to play is on Saturday vs. the Clippers. The Lakers will start D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac. David Nwaba should get some extended run off the bench with Ingram out.
Mar 30 - 1:16 PM

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he won't rest any players on Thursday.

This means LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will be a full go. Iman Shumpert (knee) and Richard Jefferson (knee) will play, while Kyle Korver (foot) is still out . The Cavs do play again on Friday vs. Philly, so a DNP-rest could be coming for James, Love and Irving if they see a lot of minutes tonight.
