Unrestricted free agent Josh McRoberts has reportedly verbally committed to sign with Miami.

The deal is reportedly for the full mid-level exception for four-years, and $23 million with a player option after the third year. McRoberts is a solid role player, and a stretch four that can spread the floor with his shooting and passing abilities. While McRoberts was a sneaky low-end contributor last year, his statistical output in Miami is unlikely to help a fantasy squad. The Hornets lose their starting power forward, which opens up the door for Cody Zeller and Noah Vonleh to compete for minutes. It will be interesting to see how the rotations in Charlotte develop, and we'll be monitoring that situation closely.

Avery Bradley (Achilles) is not being listed on the injury report for Monday's game against the Hawks, and he's currently going through his pregame routine.

Feb 27 - 5:37 PM

Richard Jefferson will replace Channing Frye in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Milwaukee.

Feb 27 - 5:32 PM

Kyle Korver (knee) will play Monday vs. the Bucks.

Feb 27 - 5:29 PM

LeBron James (illness) will play Monday vs. the Bucks.

Feb 27 - 5:27 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Raptors, although he's expected to play Wednesday vs. the Magic.

This will be Porzingis' second straight game on the sidelines, but it seems like a pretty minor issue with the Knicks expecting him back on Tuesday. Joakim Noah (knee) is also out tonight, so we should see plenty of Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn, with Hernangomez being the more attractive fantasy target. Lance Thomas and Mindaugus Kuzminskas could also see some more minutes, but that doesn't mean all that much.
Feb 27 - 5:25 PM

Kenneth Faried (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Bulls.

Faried getting ruled out a full 24 hours in advance of the tip-off is slightly concerning, although that could have something to do with the fact that Tuesday's game will be the first of a back-to-back set. Wilson Chandler got the start in his place on Sunday, so he'll likely be looking at another start on Tuesday night. For now, we'll consider Faried questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

Joakim Noah underwent successful arthroscopic left knee surgery on Monday, and he will be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks.

Noah's New York homecoming has been nothing short of disastrous, and it only gets worse when you realize Phil Jackson signed this man to a four-year deal worth $72 million during the offseason. The initial report speculated that Noah could miss the rest of the season after this procedure, so the only positive here is that he'll be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks. Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn will be manning the five spot moving forward, and both those guys look like quality speculative adds, with Hernangomez offering the most upside. Noah can be cut everywhere.

Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) is unlikely to play on Monday vs. the Raptors according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

He's day-to-day, so maybe we will see him back on Mar. 1 vs. the Magic. With Joakim Noah (knee surgery) likely out for the season, KP may spend more time at center down the stretch. Willy Hernangomez looks like a great option in all formats Monday, while Lance Thomas will likely start next to Carmelo Anthony if KP can't go. Thomas played 37 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday, scoring 11 points with six rebounds, two assists and one triple. To be clear, Thomas' ceiling is low.

Joakim Noah is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and miss the rest of the season.

Just when we thought his contract couldn't look any worse. This report comes from Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, so it's more than credible. Noah's hamstring is the reason he's been sidelined recently, so the knee issue is coming out of nowhere -- this is the same knee he injured back in 2014, but it's reportedly unrelated. We'll have an update when the Knicks address this, but Willy Hernangomez should be picked up in all standard leagues. Kyle O'Quinn gets a nice boost as well. Marc Berman of the NY Post is reporting that Noah's surgery is scheduled for Monday night.

Ben Simmons had a "minor foot procedure" to stimulate bone growth and accelerate healing.

He had bone marrow injected in his effective fracture area, but the 76ers said he will resume training by the end of the week. Simmons has already been ruled out for the season, but he will continue to have scans on his foot every month. For now, he's expected to be ready for the summer league.
Feb 27 - 11:51 AM

Joel Embiid has some swelling in his left knee and is out indefinitely.

Embiid is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday afternoon, so maybe we'll get a better update on his timetable after that. He was originally ruled out through Mar. 3, but it sounds like he's looking at an extended absence. The playoffs are basically out of the question for Philly, so the shut-down risk here is huge. The outlooks for Jahlil Okafor and Richaun Holmes have improved with this report.
