Zach Randolph suffered a hyperextended elbow and limped a bit on a sore knee in Monday's 97-83 win over the hapless Kings on Monday, but the injuries apparently aren't serious.

Randolph is banged up like the rest of his teammates and they could all use a rest, but they're locked up in a big battle for seeding. We'll let you know if news worsens but owners can keep him in lineups, and he was fine tonight with 15 points, seven boards, three assists and one steal in his 30 minutes.
Mar 30 - 11:33 PM

Avery Bradley scored 30 points against the Hornets on Monday with eight rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He was coming in ice cold over his previous three, averaging just 9.0 points, 2.0 boards and 1.3 assists. Bradley made just 40 percent from the field in his previous games this month and coach Brad Stevens may have just rode the hot hand. Bradley is a decent player to own in points leagues, but he doesn't add enough to his scoring totals to add in standard formats.
Mar 30 - 11:26 PM

Jeff Green scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in Monday's easy win over the Kings.

Green is one of the few healthy guys for the Grizz right now and he looks like a good bet to produce startable fantasy numbers the rest of the way.
Mar 30 - 11:22 PM

Marcus Smart had an effective game on both ends against the Hornets on Monday with 14 points, six rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

He scored a combined four points in his previous four games, so he needed this one. Smart is still not involved in the offense for scoring and only had three dimes in that aforementioned four-game span, so he's not a guy most fantasy owners should trust after this gem. He's only an option in deep leagues right now.
Mar 30 - 11:19 PM

Kosta Koufos grabbed a season-high 12 rebounds on Monday, and also chipped in with eight points on 3-of-6 shooting and three blocks.

Koufos might get some extra minutes if the Grizzlies pull back on some of their big men, but in the thick of a seeding hunt that's hard to plan for if you're a fantasy owner. Even seeing Zach Randolph hobble around a bit with a sore knee, we'd need to hear that he's in danger of missing time before we advise a pickup.
Mar 30 - 11:16 PM

Kemba Walker carried the Hornets on offense during a 116-104 loss to the Celtics on Monday, scoring 28 points with three rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

Al Jefferson isn't himself right now, so expect Walker to dominate the ball. He had 20 shots from the field and nine from the line in 40 minutes tonight. The loss tonight moves the Hornets 1.5 games behind the Celtics for the No. 8 seed and the Hornets are absolutely trying to make the playoffs. Walker should be busy the rest of the way.
Mar 30 - 11:14 PM

Vince Carter scored nine points on 3-of-8 shooting (3-of-6 from deep) with two rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Carter might see 25 mpg with these types of numbers for however long Tony Allen (hamstring) is out. Give him a look if you're desperate for threes.
Mar 30 - 11:14 PM

Ray McCallum scored 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting (no threes, 4-of-7 FTs) with four rebounds and three assists in Monday's loss to the Grizzlies.

Outside of Rudy Gay's 24 points this was the best line in the Sacramento box, speaking to the overall lack of talent in Sacramento. Look for ownership to continue making changes.
Mar 30 - 11:10 PM

Marvin Williams blocked three shots against the Celtics on Monday with 10 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

It's not a huge line, but fantasy owners will definitely take this with the three blocks. Cody Zeller (shoulder) tried to warm up tonight, but he couldn't suit up for the game. Williams has three more games this week and is worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 30 - 11:09 PM

Al Jefferson scored 12 points with five rebounds, four assists and one block in 25 minutes against the Celtics on Monday.

Even taking into account that the Celtics doubled him a lot, he still doesn't look 100 percent. Jefferson only played 17 minutes on Saturday and the Hornets might be keeping him under 30 for a couple more games. He's still worth starting in most leagues.
Mar 30 - 11:05 PM

Sauce Castillo scored just four points on 1-of-3 shooting in 24 minutes on Monday, but still managed one trey, five boards, three assists, one steal and one block.

Castillo is not getting it done in fantasy leagues right now, but with the Kings potentially losing Rudy Gay (concussion) and DeMarcus Cousins looking at potential DNPs there could be some space here for him to produce. It's hard to say what upside he has, however, so owners can probably wait and see how this goes for now.
Mar 30 - 11:00 PM

Coach George Karl said he believes Rudy Gay was diagnosed with a concussion and that Gay blacked out after his collision on Monday.

He will have to go through the concussion protocol, which gives him very little chance to play for Wednesday. Although, Andre Drummond and Elijah Millsap only needed a little over one day to get through the protocol earlier this month, but that's still very rare. Gay could miss the entire week and he's not a must-own player if you really need games played this week. Ben McLemore, Omri Casspi, Ray McCallum and Sauce Castillo benefit.
Mar 30 - 10:48 PM

Dennis Schroder (toe) will not travel for Tuesday's game in Detroit.

Ugh. We were very excited about Schroder's week with the Hawks likely to sit Jeff Teague on Tuesday, but now we might only get six minutes out of him. As it stands right now, we'd consider Shelvin Mack as the favorite to start on Tuesday against the Pistons. He's worth a look at any depth right now.
Mar 30 - 10:21 PM

Rudy Gay is undergoing a concussion test on Monday and will not return.

He was able to walk back to the locker room on his own, but he was a little woozy. For now, we would consider Gay extremely doubtful to play for Wednesday's game in Houston and he could miss one of the upcoming home games this weekend. Omri Casspi, Ben McLemore and Sauce Castillo would benefit without Rudy.
Mar 30 - 9:57 PM
Rodney Hood - G/F - Jazz

Rodney Hood (concussion-like symptoms) will not return on Monday night.

If Hood didn't have bad luck regarding his playing status, he'd have no luck at all. He has injuries to both feet and missed most of last week due to a stomach bug. Hood is likely out for at least a couple games, so Joe Ingles is worth a look in standard leagues now.
