Thabo Sefolosha (groin) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

He will miss his second game in a row and he could be looking at more time on the shelf -- he was using the StairMaster at Monday's practice. With Kent Bazemore (knee) out at least one more game, Taurean Prince is worth a long look after the rookie scored a career-high 17 points with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes on Sunday.

Paul Millsap (knee), Thabo Sefolosha (groin) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play vs. the Suns on Tuesday.

Despite an MRI on Millsap's knee coming back clean, the big man will miss his sixth game in a row. The Hawks do have three more games this week after Tuesday, but it's anybody's guess at this point if he will play. While he's said to be dealing with "left knee tightness," coach Mike Budenholzer said over the weekend that he also has some swelling. Ersan Ilyasova will draw another start at the four on Tuesday.

Kent Bazemore (knee) could return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

This means he will miss at least one more game vs. the Suns on Tuesday. Thabo Sefolosha (groin) is also out on Tuesday, meaning Taurean Prince will be a solid streaming option vs. the Suns -- Prince scored a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a must-start player until further notice.

Goran Dragic is playing through a "nagging foot injury."

The injury is so painful that the Heat training staff has been cutting a hole in the side of his sneaker to alleviate the pressure while he’s playing. There aren't any specifics, but this likely explains why Dragic has slowed down with averages of 15.6 points, 5.2 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 1.2 triples on 35.7 percent shooting over his last five games. The good news for fantasy owners is that DNPs will be unlikely down the stretch for Dragic with the Heat clinging onto the No. 8 seed.
Mar 27 - 1:38 PM

James Harden (wrist) is practicing on Monday and will play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

He already said that he would play on Tuesday vs. the Warriors after aggravating his wrist on Sunday night, but it doesn't hurt to get more confirmation. Harden's owners should be in great shape with four games on the schedule this week.
Mar 27 - 1:22 PM

Reggie Bullock (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Knicks.

He's been diagnosed with a sprained right foot and is currently in a walking boot. Bullock was averaging 13.3 minutes over his last four games, so Stanley Johnson will likely pick up a few extra minutes in his absence.
Mar 27 - 1:16 PM

Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) did not participate in Monday's morning shootaround.

To be clear, he remains questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans. This means he will likely test out his quad in pre-game warmups. X-rays were negative and it shouldn't be a long-term issue, and Hayward does have a lot of incentive to play since the Jazz currently hold a 1.0 game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed. If he can't go, Joe Ingles will be a solid streaming option in his absence.
Mar 27 - 1:03 PM

Al Jefferson (ankle) is expected to miss at least a few days according to coach Nate McMillan.

This means it's safe to rule him out for Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves. X-rays came back negative after he sprained his left ankle on Sunday, but Big Al woke up on Monday morning with a lot of swelling. He's also still on crutches and in a walking boot. In his absence, Lavoy Allen, Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas are all candidates for more minutes, but there are no fantasy pickups here.

Patrick Beverley said the NBA's trend of resting players is a "disgrace to the association."

"I could care less about coaches asking players to rest or not. It's up to you to play or not, and if you don't, you're disrespecting the game," Beverley said. "And I don't believe in disrespecting the game, because there was a time where I wasn't playing in the NBA and I was trying to get here. So me resting, I feel like, is disrespecting me, disrespecting the name on the front of the jersey and disrespecting the name on the back of the jersey." The Rockets only have nine games remaining and are ahead of the Jazz by 7.0 games, but at least Beverley's owners don't have to worry about DNPs going forward.

Rodney Stuckey's (knee) status for Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves is up in the air.

He left Sunday's game against the 76ers due to a sore left knee and wasn't able to return. "We haven’t taken X-rays yet," McMillan said on Sunday night. "He was walking a little better coming off the floor. I’m sure [the training staff] will give me an update tomorrow." Stuckey will undergo an MRI on Monday afternoon, and if he misses time, both Monta Ellis and C.J. Miles could see a bump in minutes.
Mar 27 - 11:56 AM

The Raptors have recalled Bruno Caboclo from the D-League.

He's nowhere close to being in the rotation and is also dealing with a bit of shoulder soreness.
Mar 27 - 11:44 AM

Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Spurs.

This isn't the same knee that Shumpert has had multiple surgeries on, and with Kyle Korver (foot) on the shelf, hopefully Shumpert will try to give it a go. If not, look for J.R. Smith to take on a heavy workload vs. the Spurs. Shumpert belongs on the waiver wire anyways.
Mar 27 - 11:18 AM

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

Not good. He's dealing with left foot soreness again, the same issue that sidelined him for seven games earlier this month. Fantasy owners can't mess around during the playoffs, and considering coach Tyronn Lue doesn't know when the sharpshooter will return, it makes sense to evaluate other options. With Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) considered questionable, J.R. Smith should get a lot of burn.
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.
