Latest Headlines

Shawn Marion met face-to-face with Pacers president Larry Bird on Monday according to Marc Stein.

Stein reported earlier in the week that if the Cavs acquired Kevin Love that they would get Marion, too. He has walked back his report a little bit, but taking a meeting and passing up a chance to play with LeBron for a championship are two different things. We'll pass along details as they become available.

Carmelo Anthony is listed as the starter against the Heat on Wednesday.

With Derrick Rose (knee) out, Melo should be looking at quite a few shots tonight. He'll likely get a couple nights off in the near future, but go ahead and get him in your lineup for now.
Mar 29 - 6:58 PM

Taurean Prince will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Kent Bazemore (knee) will be back in action tonight, but Mike Budenholzer will go with the same starting five from over the past few games of Dennis Schroder, Tim Hardaway Jr., Prince, Ersan Ilyasova and Dwight Howard. Prince has excelled in his previous two starts, and he should be able to keep the good times rolling with an extremely favorable matchup against Philly tonight. Feel free to get him active.
Mar 29 - 6:49 PM

Salah Mejri (knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

The team is calling it knee soreness, but it sounds like he got banged up on the play against the Thunder when he took that kick to the stomach. With Mejri out, we should get Dwight Powell back in the rotation and get minutes in the teens.
Mar 29 - 6:47 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) and Solomon Hill (foot) will play Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

Cousins will be returning from a two-game absence, which will shift Dante Cunningham back to the second unit, and both Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday's usage rates will take a hit. Feel free to get Boogie active for a favorable matchup with the Mavericks.
Mar 29 - 6:24 PM

DeMarre Carroll (back) will start and P.J. Tucker will come off the bench against the Hornets on Wednesday.

Carroll is back after missing his last two games. He was only playing around 20 minutes before his injury, so he should be in that neighborhood. With his return, Tucker, Norman Powell, Delon Wright, Jonas Valanciunas and Jakob Poeltl could lose a few minutes with the rotation change. Leave Carroll on the wire in most cases.
Mar 29 - 6:20 PM

Ty Lawson (quad) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

If Lawson is out, that will leave just Darren Collison, Langston Galloway, Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore as the only available players in Sacramento's backcourt. Hield has been playing very well as of late, although with 10 games on a slate and a tough matchup vs. the Jazz, he's not necessarily a must-start guy. Lawson has been hit-or-miss this season, but typically when Collison and Tyreke Evans are active, it's a miss.
Mar 29 - 5:55 PM

Arron Afflalo (personal), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Garrett Temple (rest) will not play Wednesday vs. Utah.

Afflalo has spent the past two games away from the team for personal reasons, and with both him and Temple on the sidelines tonight, Buddy Hield and Darren Collison will get all the run they can handle as some of the last men standing in Sacramento's backcourt. Afflalo isn't really worth owning anywhere.
Mar 29 - 5:46 PM

Kent Bazemore (knee) will come off the bench and have a minutes restriction against the 76ers on Wednesday.

It will be his first game back after missing the last five. Mike Dunleavy (knee) is out, so perhaps Bazemore just slides right into his 18-minute role from Tuesday night. Taurean Prince should still be looking at a decent amount of playing time and is the preferred fantasy option for now.
Mar 29 - 5:40 PM

Justin Anderson will make his first start as a 76er against the Hawks on Wednesday for Robert Covington (knee).

He finally gets his chance to start and he should be looking at huge minutes. The 76ers will have to play Nik Stauskas at the one to open up some wing minutes and coach Brett Brown may even need Anderson to play minutes at the four. Anderson is coming off a 4-of-14 from the field outing against the Nets on Tuesday, so there should be a lot of usage with minutes around 30. If you're in a competitive league, it makes sense to add JA speculatively until Covington is back.
Mar 29 - 5:30 PM

Robert Covington (right knee soreness) will not play on Wednesday against the Hawks.

He had an MRI on his right knee and the results have not been revealed yet. This could be related to the right knee injury from Mar. 10, which caused him to miss one game. With the 76ers looking for lottery balls, it's possible they are very careful with RoCo. Justin Anderson gets a massive boost here and is worth a pickup for owners looking to add some up-and-coming wings. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot should also benefit and Shawn Long also should step up because the 76ers can't use Dario Saric as a five man as often.
Mar 29 - 5:22 PM

Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

This will be his fourth consecutive game watching from the sidelines, and it's starting to look like Okafor could start trending in shutdown territory, particularly with how well Richaun Holmes has played in his absence. Okafor's upside isn't great, so if you're in a standard league without an IR-spot, there's not much incentive to hang onto him.
