The Magic traded swingman Trevor Ariza to the Lakers for PF Brian Cook and G/F Maurice Evans on Tuesday.

The Magic got a much needed big man in Cook, and Evans has proven to be an excellent scorer when Kobe Bryant has been out of the lineup. Ariza is a talented youngster who has never gotten a true chance at a starting role, but it's unlikely it will happen with the Lakers, at least for now. However, Evans could end up playing some major minutes for the Magic at shooting guard, possibly even starting at some point.

Evan Fournier (hip) and Luke Ridnour (hamstring) will not play against the Kings on Friday.

This will be Fournier's fourth game out of the lineup. With Willie Green also out tonight, the Magic will likely have to give more minutes to Aaron Gordon and maybe even Moe Harkless. Tobias Harris and Victor Oladipo will also be around 40 minutes tonight. Fournier can be left on the wire in most leagues.

Robert Covington (elbow) will play Friday vs. the Jazz.

Covington will come off the bench for this one, and he will have a difficult matchup against the Jazz, so that is something that should be considered for those playing daily leagues. There's no word on a minutes restriction, but owners of Covington looking to close the gap in the 3-point category can go ahead and get him active.

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Wizards on Saturday.

This makes it a DNP for five of the last six games because of his hamstring issue. The Bucks tend not to be forthcoming for Mayo, so almost all of his fantasy owners should be looking to cut him and not deal with the headache. While he's out, Tyler Ennis will continue to stay in the rotation while Jerryd Bayless gets most of his minutes at shooting guard. Bayless is worth a look in 16-team leagues.

Jamal Crawford (calf) and Matt Barnes (hamstring) did not practice on Friday and are not expected to play on Sunday against the Warriors.

This would be Crawford's second game out of the lineup after suffering his calf contusion on Monday. J.J. Redick logged a whopping 47 minutes in the overtime game on Wednesday and should be near 40 again vs. GSW. Austin Rivers also will see more playing time, but he's not a fantasy option in most situations. Crawford owners should stash him unless there's a red-hot add on the wire.

Devin Harris (right hand) is doubtful to play against the Warriors on Friday.

He played 28 minutes in three of their last five games and Harris has become an underrated part of the Dallas rotation, especially with Chandler Parsons (ankle) out. Harris has played a big chunk of his minutes at shooting guard recently, which means the Mavericks might have to go with just a four-guard rotation of Monta Ellis, Rajon Rondo, J.J. Barea (thumb) and Raymond Felton because the forward rotation is already thin without Parsons. Barea is also up in the air and has only played next to Rondo for only 19 minutes in the last six games combined, so it's going to be interesting behind Ellis and Rondo. Felton probably gets the biggest increase in playing time from a percentage standpoint, but he's not worth using.

Devin Harris (right hand) is officially being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Warriors.

Harris wasn't really able to move his hand following Thursday's loss to the Blazers, so we'd consider him closer to doubtful than questionable. If he's forced to sit, the seldom-used Raymond Felton could step into the rotation, but he can't be viewed as a viable option in most leagues.
Mar 6 - 2:10 PM

J.J. Barea (left thumb sprain) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

With both Barea and Devin Harris (hand) questionable for Friday, Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis could be forced into heavy minutes, with Raymond Felton serving as the only backup at the point guard position. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely, but if both Barea and Harris are unavailable, Ellis would be worth a plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Mar 6 - 2:05 PM

Nick Young (knee) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies, as expected.

This will be Young's fifth consecutive game on the sidelines, but he is said to be targeting a return for Sunday's game vs. the Mavericks, so we'll be monitoring his status closely. With Young out, there will be more opportunities on offense for Jeremy Lin, Wayne Ellington, and Wes Johnson. Lin has been playing very well lately, but given the tough matchup tonight, those playing daily leagues may want to look elsewhere for production.

Ryan Anderson said that while he is making progress in his recovery from his MCL sprain, there is currently no official timetable set for his return.

"Recovery has been a process. I’m really working a lot on getting mobility back, just walking," Anderson said. "The past week, I’ve made big strides, as far as getting out of a big knee brace. My flexibility is a lot better, as far as rotation. I haven’t tried anything on the court yet." Anderson went on to say that he has been limited to pool work and running on an arc trainer, and we'll continue to track his progress closely. Alexis Ajinca has been playing quite well lately, and he’ll be the primary beneficiary for as long as Anderson is sidelined.

Celtics' head coach Brad Stevens said that Avery Bradley suffered a badly sprained left elbow, and he will likely remain sidelined for Boston's upcoming three-game road trip.

Bradley isn't even traveling with the team, so this news isn't completely shocking. With Bradley sidelined, Isaiah Thomas will likely step up as the go-to guy on offense, so expect him to get a substantial boost in value. Bradley's injury will also open up more floor time for guys like Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, Jonas Jerebko, and potentially James Young. However, Isaiah remains the guy with the most upside.
Mar 6 - 12:19 PM

Updating a previous report, Kyle Lowry said he will suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

His return to the lineup will likely send Greivis Vasquez back to the bench, and his value will take a sizable hit with the demotion. Lowry has sat out the past three games to get his body right, so hopefully the time off will result in him playing like he was to begin the season. He'll draw a favorable matchup against the Hornets tonight, and is a must-start guy every time he's in uniform. Get him active.
