Coach Mike Krzyzewski said Derrick Rose will not have any restrictions with Team USA.

Considering he's had eight months to rehab his torn meniscus, Rose should be ready to go in Spain. As a reference point, most meniscus tears require around eight weeks of rehab time. He'll be competing for a roster spot and Coach K said he's excited to be see Rose play. We'll be tracking his progress throughout the event.

Eric Gordon's surprising surge continued in Monday's loss to the Mavs as he scored 18 points on 4-of-11 shooting (including four treys) with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.

The production isn't surprising as he's been doing this for a while now, posting a top 50-80 month (8/9 cat) with no end in sight. The fact that he has been consistent and healthy is the good part, and it's nice to see him carry some of the weight from that ugly contract the Pelicans signed him to. Tyreke Evans added 17 points, three boards, seven assists, one steal and one three in the loss.

Ricky Rubio nabbed his fourth career triple-double in the Wolves' 110-105 loss to the Clippers on Monday, scoring 18 points on 5-of-11 shooting with 12 rebounds, 11 assists and one steal.

Rubio hit 1-of-4 treys and 7-of-9 free throws and he has returned top 20-40 value over the past month (8/9 cat).

Goran Dragic fought through a back injury and only needed nine shots from the field and less than 15 minutes to score 21 points against the Suns during a 115-98 win on Monday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

Dragic said he would have sat out against any other team, so chalk this one up to the old revenge game narrative. He was fouled hard and needed to go to the locker room tonight, so he might not be healthy for Wednesday against the Lakers. As for his performance tonight, he became just the second player in the past decade to score 21 points in less than 15 minutes (Kyle Lowry). He should have plenty of big lines on the way, if his back allows him to play.

Gary Neal started for Kevin Martin (illness) on Monday, scoring 19 points on 6-of-17 shooting (including two threes) with a career-high nine rebounds, four assists and one steal in 41 minutes.

If Martin misses another game it wouldn't be surprising to see Neal step right back into Martin's uber-productive role. He won't be this good every night, but he's worth watching closely given Martin's injury risk.
Mar 2 - 11:53 PM

Chris Paul scored 26 points on 12-of-20 shooting with four rebounds, 14 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in Monday's win over the Wolves.

Paul has fallen into the category of used toy this season and is getting practically no MVP buzz despite another excellent season. In fantasy terms, he's still a top-half of the first round guy whenever he has stepped on the floor.

Tyler Johnson scored a career-high 26 points against the Suns on Monday with one rebound, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers on 10-of-13 from the field in 26 minutes.

It was also more points than he scored in any of his college games at Fresno State. Needless to say, nobody saw this coming with three consecutive DNP-CDs coming into this game. There were 102 players who logged minutes tonight and only one of them, DeMar DeRozan, had more points than Johnson tonight. Plus Johnson had a 90.8 true shooting percentage. Stats aside, Goran Dragic only played 15 minutes, which really helped Johnson. Unless you're in a really deep league, we're going to have to see Johnson score in double digits with Dragic out there for more than 30 minutes.
Mar 2 - 11:39 PM

Deron Williams scored 22 points on 8-of-19 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, four assists and one steal in the Nets' 110-108 win over the Warriors on Monday.

The All Star break probably gave him a chance to rest his chronically injured ankles and owners just have to ride Williams until the wheels fall off. If your trade deadline hasn't passed, it's also a good time to sell-high.
Mar 2 - 11:29 PM

Brook Lopez scored 26 points off the bench in Monday's win over the Warriors, hitting 11-of-22 shots with six rebounds and one block in 26 minutes.

Lopez is a threat to do this on any given night but the problem is that he is also putting up way too many duds. The result is a top 85-95 value over the last month and the only good news is that he's staying on the floor. Jarrett Jack joined the party with a pretty jumper to win the game in the final moments.
Mar 2 - 11:20 PM

P.J. Tucker scored 20 points with 14 boards, three assists and one 3-pointer against the Heat on Monday.

He crashed the boards all night and played a team-high 41 minutes tonight. Following the game, coach Jeff Hornacek said after the game that his team is "soft" and the Suns "look like a high school team." Tucker is not soft at all and those quotes suggest he is a lock for minutes in the upper 30s. He should be owned in all leagues.
Mar 2 - 11:18 PM

DeMar DeRozan exploded for a season-high 35 points against the 76ers during a 114-103 win, adding nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

It was against the 76ers, but DeRozan needed this one in a big way. He is coming off a putrid February, averaging 16.7 points, 4.2 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.2 treys on 33.9 percent from the field. With Kyle Lowry (finger) likely out for a couple, DeMar can start to get it going.
Mar 2 - 10:54 PM

Sideline reporter Jennifer Hale reported that Anthony Davis (shoulder) is close to returning to game action.

We're not quite sure where that puts him, just like an earlier report stating the Pelicans weren't going to rush him back was similarly vague. We're in the second week of his 1-2 week timetable and as long as there isn't a setback his return is essentially imminent.
