Vince Carter returned to action on Monday March 19.

Mar 20 - 5:11 AM

Stephen Curry is targeting a return from his ankle injury on Friday against the Hawks.

He only played two minutes on March 8 and hasn't played since, but the Warriors don't play again until Friday, and it sounds like Curry should be ready to play in that one. His right ankle will be officially re-evaluated on Tuesday and if all goes well, Curry will have two full days of practice and a shootaround before Friday's game. Watch for updates prior to the Hawks game.

Wilson Chandler scored 26 points on 11-of-16 shooting in Monday's double-overtime loss to the Heat.

He split a pair of free throws, adding five rebounds, two steals, one block and three triples in 47 minutes. He's only gotten better since Paul Millsap returned, averaging 15.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.2 triples in his last five games since he missed a game with a hip issue. Where was this earlier this season?
Mar 20 - 1:21 AM

Josh Richardson hit 6-of-13 shots for 17 points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal, three blocks and two 3-pointers in Monday's double-OT thriller against Denver.

His foot injury appears to be behind him and this was a far better showing than this 1-of-8 shooting effort for four points against the Lakers on Friday. He was clearly helped by the two extra periods of play, but Richardson has been filling up the stat sheet all season. Hopefully he keeps it going against the Knicks on Wednesday. If he was dropped in your league, think about grabbing him, as the Heat have three more games this week.
Mar 20 - 1:14 AM

Jamal Murray scored 23 points with six assists, five rebounds and four triples vs. the Heat on Monday.

He played 46 minutes in the double overtime loss, hitting 5-of-16 shots and 9-of-11 free throws. It's not a surprise to see Murray step up even more with Gary Harris (knee) on the shelf, as he gets a 3.6 usage rate bump with Harris off the court. He gets a cupcake matchup vs. the Bulls on Wednesday as they will be without Kris Dunn (toe) and maybe Zach LaVine (knee).
Mar 20 - 1:12 AM

Wayne Ellington hit 8-of-14 shots and six 3-pointers on his way to 23 points, four rebounds and two assists in Monday's double-OT win over the Nuggets.

Dwyane Wade is still out with his hamstring injury and Ellington is on cruise control, outside of his last game, when he hit just 1-of-7 shots for four points on Friday. Even with that dud, he's averaging 15.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 4.0 3-pointers over his last five games.
Mar 20 - 1:11 AM

Kelly Olynyk hit 11-of-16 shots and four 3-pointers for 30 points, eight rebounds, five assists, a steal and four blocks in Monday's double-overtime thrilling win over the Nuggets.

Wow. Olynyk came through in a big way in the fantasy playoffs, but this wasn't a season-high game for him, as he scored 32 in a game just before Christmas. Olynyk filled the stat sheet all the way across the board tonight and has been playing well for the Heat. He's now averaging 16.4 points, 7.4 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 1.8 blocks and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games, so congratulations are in order if you recently picked him up. He's going to get a ton of minutes going forward, regardless of when we see Hassan Whiteside (hip) again.
Mar 20 - 1:07 AM

Will Barton scored 22 points with four rebounds, three assists, four steals, two blocks and three triples in 46 minutes in Monday's double-overtime loss to Miami.

That's more like it. Barton was disappointing in his last game with eight points on 3-of-12 shots vs. Memphis, but owners can expect increased production with Gary Harris (knee) expected to miss at least the remainder of this week. He's also been a huge surprise in the blocks category lately with six swatted shots in his last three games.
Mar 20 - 1:06 AM

Nikola Jokic's 34 points weren't enough in Monday's 149-141 double-overtime loss to the Heat.

This was just a brutal loss for the Nuggets, as they slide to 10th in the Western Conference standings. They are still just two losses behind the No. 8 seed (Minnesota) and three losses behind the No. 7 seed (New Orleans), and the good news is that this means Jokic will be locked and loaded as a first-round player for the duration of the fantasy playoffs. He finished 12-of-21 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line, adding 14 rebounds, three assists, four triples and four turnovers.
Mar 20 - 12:59 AM

James Johnson came through with a career-high 31 points on 13-of-17 shooting and added 11 rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers in Monday's double-overtime thrilling win against the Nuggets.

Johnson looked like a dead man walking just five games ago, and was dropped in many leagues as a result. However, he woke up just in time for the fantasy playoffs, and if you were able to add him, you're probably doing very well right now. Johnson is averaging 17.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.7 3-pointers on 67 percent shooting over his last five. Whether you hung onto him through the rough seas or picked him up recently, Johnson might be ready to lead owners to a championship in the next couple weeks.
Mar 20 - 12:52 AM
Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol played 16 minutes vs. the Warriors on Monday with four points and four rebounds.

He was 1-of-8 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line, and this was probably the final straw for his fantasy owners. Apart from his solid game vs. the Wolves on Saturday, Gasol has now played 16 or fewer minutes in four out of his last five games.
Mar 20 - 12:51 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs to an 89-75 win over the Warriors on Monday with 33 points in 35 minutes.

He had 19 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter, the second-highest scoring fourth quarter of his career. He finished 13-of-22 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line, adding 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks. LMA has been rested a good bit since February, but he's still crushing his ADP for his fantasy owners and now has six games this season with 30+ points and 10+ rebounds -- that's the most by a Spur since Tim Duncan had six in 2004-05.
Mar 20 - 12:47 AM

Seal Labissiere hit 4-of-10 shots for 10 points, five rebounds, a steal and two blocks in Monday's loss to the Pistons.

Skal's been back for four games since a hip injury and came off the bench behind Zach Randolph tonight. He started on Saturday and while he hasn't exactly been killing it, Labissiere still has a chance to finish the season on a tear, especially if the Kings stop playing Randolph, who had just four points in 15 minutes tonight.
Mar 20 - 12:44 AM

Buddy Hield moved into the starting lineup on Monday with Bogdan Bogdanovic out with a hamstring injury and came through with 20 points, six boards, four assists, two steals and three 3-pointers on 8-of-15 shooting.

Hield's rolling, scoring at least 20 points in four straight games with 15 3-pointers. The Kings only have two more games this week, but Hield should be in all starting lineups when he plays against the Hawks on Thursday and the Celtics on Sunday.
Mar 20 - 12:41 AM

De'Aaron Fox hit 8-of-11 shots for 16 points, three boards, four assists and nothing else in Monday's loss to the Pistons.

Not his best line, but the shooting was stellar and he came through with a nice showing for his playoff owners. Especially when you consider he had just six points, one rebound and two assists on Friday. He's got a great opportunity for a big game on Thursday against the Hawks.
