Unrestricted free agent Channing Frye has agreed on a four-year deal worth $32 million with the Magic.

Frye may be the starting power forward for the Magic, and he'll bring veteran leadership to a young Orlando roster. Frye had a nice season with Phoenix last season, averaging 11.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 2.0 three-pointers through 28.2 minutes per game. It's possible Frye can get a bit more minutes in a less crowded rotation in Orlando, which would create a marginal uptick in the stats. As for Phoenix, this move should open up the door for Markieff Morris to be the starting power forward. Morris's per-36-minute numbers are impressive at 18.6 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.1 steals per game, and if Phoenix doesn't make any additional moves, Morris could be a nice sleeper pick.

An MRI on Paul Millsap's left knee came back clean according to Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer.

Millsap has already been ruled out for the fourth straight game on Sunday vs. the Nets, but based on Budenholzer's comments, the All-Star forward is likely day-to-day. His injury was previously described as "tightness" in his left knee, but Budenholzer added that he has some swelling as well. He should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns. Ersan Ilyasova will continue to be the primary beneficiary in his absence.

Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

This will be his second game in a row on the shelf. He's dealing with soreness in his surgically-repaired knee, so the 76ers are going to be cautious moving forward. Richaun Holmes has been a must-own player for weeks, but Shawn Long is on the radar in deeper leagues after he scored a career-high 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals in 19 minutes vs. the Bulls on Friday.

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said Ryan Anderson will "probably" be out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

"I hate it for Ryan," D'Antoni said. "I hate that he's not here. But we have enough to cover it up." Anderson has already been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder and he currently doesn't have a timetable to return. With Anderson out, the Rockets will likely have to play more small ball with Trevor Ariza at the four, and D'Antoni mentioned that Lou Williams, Eric Gordon and Sam Dekker will likely see a bump in minutes.

C.J. McCollum made scoring 32 points look easy during a 112-100 win over the Wolves on Saturday, making 11-of-13 from the field and all six free throws with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

Not bad on efficiency with a 102.3 true shooting percentage. Damian Lillard said McCollum is the best midrange player in the league, but McCollum said on the Blazers broadcast that he's the best "in the world." He may be right with C.J. way above league average in non-restricted paint scoring, midrange and on 3-pointers. For a guy who gets 48.3 percent of his shots on pull-ups, McCollum is vastly underrated as an elite scorer in the NBA. His fantasy owners certainly don't underrate him thanks to his top-20 value in standard leagues this season.

Kris Dunn scored a career-high 17 points against the Blazers on Saturday, adding four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

It's looking like Kris Dunn shooting guard time. In the last two games, Dunn has played a combined 31 minutes next to Ricky Rubio and 37 minutes next to Tyus Jones -- the Dunn-Rubio lineups have been torched. Now that the Wolves are basically out of it, Dunn looks like he'll be contributing on a nightly basis. If you need a point guard, he's worth a look. He could be a sneaky player to have in the last full week of the season with five games, but only has three next week.

Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points during a 106-98 win over the Knicks on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The minutes continue to be there and it looks like for the second year in a row, Kawhi will play more minutes per game after the break than he did before it. Leonard also hinted that he won't be seeing a decrease in minutes based on the tough upcoming schedule. "It's going to get us mentally prepared," Leonard said. This tough stretch starts against the Cavs on Monday as the Spurs start a four-game week.
Mar 25 - 11:56 PM

Pau Gasol scored 19 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

He's been kind of ridiculous as a jump shooter. Since returning from injury, Gasol has made 7-of-8 on corner treys to go with his 51.5 percent on above the breaks for his 24 total treys in 16 games. His defense isn't great, but his shooting has made the San Antonio offense especially tough to guard. Keep him rolling and hope he doesn't rest in back-to-back sets.
Mar 25 - 11:52 PM

Willy Hernangomez scored 24 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 36 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

With Kristaps Porzingis having a nightmare performance, the Knicks needed Willy to come through inside. The Knicks could be resting more players the rest of the way, so Hernangomez could be a difference maker in fantasy. He was still turning in value worth starting before Carmelo Anthony (knee) was out, but the added value with possible shutdowns makes him a very strong start.
Mar 25 - 11:33 PM

Mindaugas Kuzminskas matched his career-high 19 points against the Spurs on Saturday, adding one rebound, two assists and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

The Knicks appear to want to get an extra look at Kuzminskas, who came off a 14-point Thursday in Portland. Of course, his minutes and stat output will be based on whether or not Carmelo Anthony (knee) gets shut down this season. There is a decent chance this happens, so Kuzminskas is worth a look in deep leagues until we have a clear picture on Melo's status. At this time, it'll be really hard to trust him in a weekly league when it comes time to set lineups on Monday.
Mar 25 - 11:24 PM

John Wall scored 37 points during a 127-115 win over the Cavs on Saturday, adding four rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He was red hot and made his first seven shots from the field during this win. Wall and the Wizards just dominated in the paint with 58 points from that range, and they also had a 27-4 advantage in fast-break points during this win. The Wizards are within shouting distance for the top seed and are just 2.5 behind the Cavs while they're 2.0 behind Boston for No. 2. Wall's shot is back with two efficient games in a row, so his owners can expect monster stat lines with four games this week.
Mar 25 - 11:02 PM

Kelly Oubre was superb off the bench against the Cavs on Saturday, making 7-of-8 from the field for 16 points with seven rebounds, one steal and no turnovers in 26 minutes.

It was a fantastic showing for Oubre, who went up against LeBron James throughout this game. You could say this was his best game of the season with terrific play on offense, defense and especially in transition. If Bojan Bogdanovic (back) misses more time, maybe Oubre is worth a look in deep leagues. Most owners can leave him on the wire.
