T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Hornets.

Mar 26 - 11:46 AM

Hassan Whiteside (sprained ankle) feels "a lot better" and is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

Mar 26 - 11:44 AM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (illness) is a game-time call on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

Fantasy owners know the drill here. The Nets are super cautious, so they may hold RHJ out if he's not feeling up to it. This also gives them an excuse to take a long look at K.J. McDaniels. If RHJ can't go, McDaniels and Caris LeVert will likely get the biggest boost, while the Nets won't be able to play as much small ball.
Mar 26 - 11:43 AM

Gerald Henderson (hip) is available to play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

He sat out of the morning shootaround and is likely battling some soreness in his hip. Henderson will likely pick up some DNPs down the stretch, so he belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.

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.
Mar 26 - 11:32 AM

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.

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said he wants K.J. McDaniels to work on his 3-point shot during the offseason.

"In today’s game, you want a wing to be a ‘three-and-D’ guy," Atkinson said. "He’s so athletic that he can drive it all the time and get in the lane. But we need him to be out there and make some. I think the shot is technically pretty good, so I’m bullish on where he can go with his shooting." McDaniels is shooting 32.6 percent from deep this season which is his best mark through three seasons, but the defensive side of his game is already very solid. With the Nets a little banged up, McDaniels is getting a lot of burn and is averaging 12.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.0 triples in 23.6 minutes per game over his last three outings. Keep an eye on him.

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.

Al Horford said he's taking less 3-pointers per game because he's trying to be more aggressive in the paint.

After averaging 4.1 triples per game through the first four months of the season, Horford is only attempting 1.7 per game in March. "With the 3-point shot, I’ve been working on it quite a bit. I feel confident about taking them when I’m open, taking them when they’re there, and just being a little more selective with the shots that I take." His fantasy owners probably don't mind, as his FG percentage is way up and he's averaging 8.9 points in the paint over his last 13 games. He's been a top-10 player in standard leagues over the last couple weeks and is peaking at the perfect time for fantasy owners.
Mar 26 - 10:26 AM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Kelly Oubre has been a "superstar" in his role off the bench.

"The game for Kelly, to me, is simple. Just compete," Brooks said. "Deflections. Getting into the passing lanes. Contesting at the rim. Switching on our pick-and-roll coverage because he can guard one through four depending on the matchup and then rebound. The game rewards him when he does that." The second-year wing had one of his best games of the season against LeBron James and the Cavs on Saturday, finishing with 16 points, seven rebounds, one steal and no turnovers in 26 minutes. However, unless we learn that Bojan Bogdanovic (back) will miss more time, most fantasy owners can leave him on the wire for now.
Mar 26 - 9:36 AM

Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek praised Willy Hernangomez after he scored 24 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block vs. the Spurs on Saturday.

"He’s getting better and better every game,’’ Hornacek said. "The experience against this team with LaMarcus [Aldridge], [Dewayne] Dedmon, Pau [Gasol], those are long, long guys. You see how smart a player he is. He didn’t try to jump over the guys and challenge them — he shot his little floaters over them.’’ Hornacek said he isn't ready to commit to Hernangomez as the starting center for the 2017-18 season, but with Joakim Noah suspended for the first 12 games of that campaign, the rookie has to be the heavy favorite. He should be owned in all standard leagues.
Mar 26 - 9:28 AM

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.
Mar 26 - 1:24 AM

Damian Lillard made 8-of-13 from the field for 21 points with six points, eight rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

The garbage time could've been the main reason why his three-game streak of scoring at least 30 has been snapped. On the other hand, Lillard does have a great efficiency streak still alive with at least a 54.0 true shooting percentage (TS%) in nine straight, totaling a pristine 68.3 TS% and a 35.2 usage rate in that span. He's arguably the hottest scorer in the league and is a big reason why the Blazers won't go away in the race for eighth.
Mar 26 - 1:12 AM

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 16 points with five rebounds and one block in 31 minutes during a 112-100 loss to the Blazers on Saturday.

It's been a long, long time since KAT had a dud like this one. In fact, the 21 combined points and boards are his lowest since Nov. 23 against the Pelicans. Over his previous games since the break, Towns averaged 28.1 points, 13.9 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.4 treys. Even with the Wolves basically out of the playoffs, KAT is headed for a monster finish.
Mar 26 - 1:06 AM

Ricky Rubio scored 16 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

This loss puts the Wolves down six games from the No. 8 spot with only 10 games to go, so they're basically dead in the water. We'll see how coach Tom Thibodeau plays this one with Rubio, but it's obvious more minutes are going to Tyus Jones and Kris Dunn. To be clear, the low minutes today had to do with garbage time. With only three games this week, Rubio's fantasy owners may have to weigh their options.
