Kyle Korver (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

Mar 27 - 11:12 AM

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said he doesn't know Paul Millsap's (knee) status for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

"Hopefully between now and then he makes more progress and there is a chance but at this point we don’t know about Tuesday," Budenholzer said on Sunday afternoon. Millsap has missed five games in a row due to left knee tightness, and the good news is that an MRI showed no damage. Hopefully we'll get a better idea of Millsap's status before weekly lineups lock later this evening. If he misses more time, Ersan Ilyasova will continue to benefit the most.
Mar 27 - 10:55 AM

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

Coach Alvin Gentry also said on Sunday that Cousins would be questionable, but he will likely end up being a game-time call since the Pelicans aren't expected to have a morning shootaround. Dante Cunningham could earn another start if Boogie sits, but he's not a good fantasy option. Instead, look for Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday to carry the Pelicans if Boogie can't go.

Paul George said he wants Myles Turner to keep dominating on the glass.

"That’s the Myles that we need," George said after Turner pulled down 16 rebounds to go with 17 points, two blocks, one assist and one steal vs. the 76ers on Sunday. "At his position, with us playing small, he’s got to do that. He’s got to rebound the ball. He had that mindset and that motor to go get every rebound. That’s how he should approach every game." Turner is averaging 7.2 rebounds on the season, but he's still returning second-round value in standard leagues because of his 2.1 blocks per game and his excellent shooting percentages -- he's hitting 51.2 percent from the field and 80.0 percent from the line.

Kevin Durant (knee) will have minutes restrictions if he is cleared to return to the court.

"It’s something we’ll consult the training staff on," head coach Steve Kerr said. "I imagine we’ll ease him back by playing him shorter minutes to start, so he can build up his rhythm and his conditioning." Durant's timetable is still murky, but he's scheduled to be re-evaluated by team doctors in less than a week and it sounds like there's a good chance he will return before the end of the regular season. Durant has been seen running wind sprints, shooting jumpers and even dunking, but his return will likely come when most fantasy seasons have concluded.

James Harden said he will play on Tuesday vs. the Warriors despite aggravating his left wrist on Sunday vs. the Thunder.

He left Sunday's game vs. the Thunder in the final minute after a hard a fall and didn't return, but he said that he's "good." Coach Mike D'Antoni hinted that Harden may get a maintenance day at some point, but not if Harden has anything to say about it. "It's something he's probably going to have to put up with the rest of the year," D'Antoni said. "It's a tendon. He jammed it. Hopefully, he's good. If he needs to rest, he'll rest and make sure he gets well, but knowing him, he wants to play." With Harden hoping to lock up the MVP Award, his fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned.

Jahlil Okafor said that the 76ers are being "super cautious" with his right knee.

He has missed two games in a row with right knee soreness and nine total games on the season, and there currently isn't a timetable for his return. "If we were like on the verge of trying to get a playoff spot or something like that, I could go out there and play," Okafor said. "But Coach Brown and all of our people behind the scenes don’t believe it’s necessary for me to play if my knee is feeling sore and stuff like that." This has been a lost season for Okafor and fantasy owners should've moved on a long time ago. Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long will continue to see a bump in value while he's out.
Mar 27 - 9:39 AM

Hassan Whiteside said that playing with his heavily wrapped right hand is "tough."

"It's tough rebounding. It's tough to do a lot," Whiteside said. "But I try to give everything I can possibly give to help the team." The big man is playing with 13 stitches in his right hand in addition to a tweaked right ankle, but with the Heat in a playoff race, he can't afford to take any time off. His fantasy owners don't mind, as he was still able to post a dominant line of 19 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, one steal and a blocked shot in 30 minutes against the Celtics on Sunday.
Mar 27 - 9:32 AM

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said he isn't concerned about Marcus Smart's shooting slump.

Smart is shooting just 29.8 percent from the field and 17.6 percent from 3-point range in March, but he's helping out in other areas. "You know what? I've said this before. Hey, Marcus could score 30 in a game and hit every shot, or he could score zero and not hit his shots, and his two biggest strengths are still his competitiveness and his brains," Stevens said. "He's really smart, and he's really tough. And those two things mean more than any points or no points that he could score." He's averaging 10.2 points, 4.5 assists, 3.6 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.7 triples in March, so he's still a decent asset in points formats even when his shot isn't falling.

Wade Baldwin was signed by MEM on Sunday March 26.

Mar 27 - 4:11 AM

Tyler Ennis took advantage of expanded minutes on Sunday to post a season-high 14 points (6-of-15 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) with five assists, four steals and three rebounds in 26 minutes.

Ennis was a big winner in the rotation tonight as the only true guard in the second unit. He hit season-highs in nearly every category and benefited from L.A.'s unusual rotations in a blowout loss without Brandon Ingram (knee). We'll need to see a few more solid performances before approaching him as a fantasy pickup.
Mar 27 - 12:53 AM

X-rays were negative on Jordan Clarkson's bruised fifth metacarpal on Sunday, and he returned to finish with 10 points, seven rebounds and six assists, going 4-of-16 from the field with one 3-pointer.

Clarkson dropped a career-high 35 points on Friday and he seems to have avoided any serious injury tonight, although he was ice-cold after returning. "He has the ability to be so dynamic," Luke Walton said before the game. "He’s been one of our more consistent players." His long-term outlook is terrific, and barring a setback owners can also expect him to be ready for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

Larry Nance missed both of his 3-point attempts on Sunday, but he finished 4-of-7 from the field for nine points, seven rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes.

"At the beginning of the season it was, ‘All right, I’ve got [an open 3-point shot], who else is open?’" Nance said before the game. "Now it's, ‘I’ve got it. Where’s the shot clock at?’ I’m confident in it, our team’s confident, the coaches have given me confidence. I’m ready to let it go." He's just 6-of-23 from deep this season and his owners shouldn't be eager for more long-range attempts, since his 53.3 percent shooting is a key aspect of his fantasy value. Better luck next season.

Corey Brewer started Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (right knee), finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes.

Brewer might have played more if the game were close, but the veteran got a long rest with the score out of hand in the second half. He's not a fantasy option, even if Ingram misses more games.
Mar 27 - 12:38 AM

David Nwaba came off the bench on Sunday for nine points on 4-of-4 shooting with one 3-pointer, one rebound and one steal in 29 minutes of action.

Luke Walton said Nwaba was "spectacular" filling in for Brandon Ingram (knee) late in Friday's game. Corey Brewer got the start in place of Ingram tonight, but the D-League call-up wound up playing more minutes in the blowout home loss. Nwaba's made 3-pointer was the first of his career, and he has a long way to go before earning a spot on fantasy rosters.
