Ian Mahinmi (hip) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Lakers and scored 10 points in 18 minutes.

He finished 3-of-4 from the field with five rebounds and two steals, and while he showed no signs of being limited, his workload will be low while Marcin Gortat is healthy. Leave Mahinmi on the wire.

Bojan Bogdanovic (back) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Lakers and scored six points on 3-of-8 shooting.

Maybe the Wizards were taking it easy on him, as he only played 16 minutes with one rebound, one assist and one steal. It also doesn't help that Kelly Oubre is playing much better these days. He did score 17 points in his previous game before missing Saturday's contest vs. Cleveland, but standard-league owners should probably look elsewhere for consistent production.
Mar 29 - 1:29 AM

John Wall lit up the Lakers for 34 points and 14 assists in Tuesday's 119-108 win.

Trailing by 13 points entering the fourth, the Wizards outscored the Lakers 37-13 in the final quarter. Wall finished 14-of-25 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line with three rebounds, four steals and one triple in 37 minutes, improving the Wizards to 30-12 since the new year. The Wizards play three more times this week against the Clippers on Wednesday, the Jazz on Friday and the Warriors on Sunday.
Mar 29 - 1:24 AM

Will Barton scored 13 points with one rebound, one assist and one block vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

He shot 6-of-14 from the field and only played 20 minutes, so his value has fallen off a cliff since Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari returned to the lineup. Barton's owners outside of deeper leagues can move on since the Nuggets only play two more times this week.
Mar 29 - 1:11 AM

Nikola Jokic flirted with a triple-double on Tuesday vs. the Blazers with 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting, eight assists, eight rebounds, two blocks and one triple in 36 minutes.

The Nuggets didn't get the win and Jokic was outplayed by former teammate Jusuf Nurkic, but the good news for his fantasy owners is he should be locked in the rest of the way as the Nuggets try to steal the No. 8 seed back from Portland. The Nuggets have the best offensive rating in the NBA since Jokic moved back into the starting lineup on Dec. 15, so the future is bright for Denver regardless of where they finish the year.
Mar 29 - 1:08 AM

Mason Plumlee failed to score in 16 minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

Jusuf Nurkic (33 points, 16 rebounds) believes in revenge games, but Plumlee apparently doesn't. He missed all four of his shots from the field with two rebounds, three assists and one block, and he also had a couple of key turnovers during Portland's run to end the third quarter. The Nuggets are healthy and playing more small-ball, so Plumlee isn't worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 29 - 1:02 AM

Jameer Nelson matched his season-high with 23 points in Tuesday's loss to the Blazers.

He logged 34 minutes and shot an impressive 8-of-11 from the field with four assists, three rebounds and four triples. The Nuggets trail the No. 8 seed (Portland) by a single game with eight games remaining on the schedule, so there's no reason to think that coach Michael Malone will reduce Nelson's workload in favor of Jamal Murray or Emmanuel Mudiay while the Nuggets are in the mix for a playoff spot. Denver only plays two more times this week, so Nelson might be on a lot of benches in weekly formats.
Mar 29 - 12:57 AM

Al-Farouq Aminu scored 15 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Aminu's minutes are trending down with Noah Vonleh playing well, but he got a small bump with Moe Harkless in foul trouble tonight. He was only averaging 8.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, 0.7 blocks, 0.9 steals and 1.0 3-pointers in March prior to tonight, and keep in mind that the Blazers only have two more games this week. He's more of a streaming option in deeper leagues.
Mar 29 - 12:54 AM

C.J. McCollum went off for 39 points on 15-of-24 shooting in Tuesday's crucial win over the Nuggets.

Portland has now won a season-high tying four straight games and improved to 12-3 in March which ties them with San Antonio for the league's best record in that span. As for McCollum, this was the second- highest scoring game of his career and he finished four points shy of his career-high (43). He hit all six of his free throws with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three triples in 40 minutes, and with the Blazers holding a 1.0 game advantage over Denver for the No. 8 seed, McCollum should be an elite option the rest of the way.
Mar 29 - 12:45 AM

Goran Dragic hit 9-of-16 shots, a 3-pointer and 9-of-13 free throws for 28 points, four rebounds and four assists in 34 minutes of Tuesday's one-point win over the Pistons.

There was once a time when everyone was worried about him being traded, but those days are long gone. Now he's simply the Heat's most reliable player as they fight for their playoff lives.
Mar 29 - 12:42 AM

James Johnson hit 5-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 16 points, six rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes of Tuesday's tough 97-96 win over the Pistons.

He's quietly been playing very well again, scoring in double figures in 10 straight games and averaging 16 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.2 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.0 3-pointers on 42 percent shooting over his last five. And tonight's game was his first without a block and a steal in his last five games, as well. The fact the Heat are fighting for their playoff lives also works in his favor, so just keep rolling him out there.
Mar 29 - 12:41 AM

Josh Richardson hit just 3-of-11 shots for nine points, but also had a 3-pointer, five rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's win over the Pistons.

We're done making excuses for Richardson, but it was nice to see him come through with a decent line on a poor shooting night. However, he hit just 3-of-10 shots on Sunday, making him 6-of-21 over his last two games. The minutes are there and the time is right for Richardson to finally have one of those epic fantasy lines. Maybe it will happen against the struggling Knicks on Wednesday night.
Mar 29 - 12:38 AM

Jusuf Nurkic went off in a 122-113 win over his former team on Tuesday, scoring a career-high 33 points on 12-of-15 shooting (9-of-11 FTs).

He wanted this win in the worst way and his teammates swarmed him after his career night with the Blazer crowd chanting his name like a scene in Gladiator. He ripped down 16 rebounds with two assists and three blocks in 33 minutes, giving his team a 1.0 game lead over the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed in the West. He's been phenomenal since his move to Portland and he will likely be on a lot of championship rosters in fantasy leagues.
Mar 29 - 12:36 AM

Rodney McGruder hit 5-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 12 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 33 minutes on Tuesday.

He's played pretty well in two of his last three games, but he's not a stat stuffer and is just as likely to cool off over the next few games as he is get hot. He belongs on waivers in most formats.
Mar 29 - 12:35 AM

Hassan Whiteside hit 7-of-13 shots for 17 points, nine rebounds and no blocks, and had the game-winning tip in a big win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

It wasn't his best game, by far, but he came through in the clutch, keeping the Heat one game in front of the Bulls for the final playoff spot in the East. And because of that, you can expect the Heat regulars to keep playing heavy minutes until further notice.
