Sergio Rodriguez (left hamstring strain) will not play Tuesday vs. Brooklyn and will miss at least one week.

Rodriguez will be re-evaluated next week, so there is no guarantee he will be able to return at that point. He belongs on waivers in all leagues. Starter T.J. McConnell will see extended minutes with Rodriguez on the shelf. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot can also be expected to pick up additional minutes as a backup point guard.

Tiago Splitter (calf) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Splitter hasn't taken the court since January of 2016, so if he is able to get out there tonight, it will likely be in an extremely limited capacity. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 28 - 6:18 PM

Devin Booker (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

Booker has been dealing with this ankle issue since March 19, and apparently aggravated it during his 70-point explosion against the Celtics, so for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Thursday's game against the Clippers. Derrick Jones Jr. will likely slide into the starting five tonight sans Booker, while T.J. Warren will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense. Jones Jr. isn't a great target in most settings, but Warren makes sense in DFS, as he'll easily be Phoenix's go-to guy on offense tonight.
Mar 28 - 6:09 PM

Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will play Tuesday night vs. the Sixers.

Kilpatrick had missed seven straight games. Coach Kenny Atkinson said that Kilpatrick will get some minutes "here and there," so we can expect him to see limited playing time on Tuesday. Kilpatrick will eat into the minutes of K.J. McDaniels and Randy Foye.
Mar 28 - 5:56 PM

Reggie Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

There have been recent reports speculating that the Pistons may eventually elect to shut down Jackson, but Stan Van Gundy stated during his pre-game interview that Jackson is simply day-to-day and stressed that he really wants to play. That being said, Jackson has been playing terribly for the past month, so there's little incentive to hang onto him in most leagues. Ish Smith will earn another start tonight, and he's worth a look if you need some dimes and steals.
Mar 28 - 5:53 PM

Coach Jason Kidd said that Khris Middleton (stomach virus) will play Tuesday vs. Charlotte.

Middleton missed shootaround this morning, but fortunately is feeling better. Fantasy owners can breathe a sign of relief and feel comfortable inserting him into their starting lineup. Middleton is averaging 16.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 treys over the Bucks last 15 games.

There's a rumor going around that the Suns may elect to rest Devin Booker for Tuesday's game against Atlanta, according to Hawks' beat reporter Chris Vivlamore.

Booker is only 20 years old and currently the only healthy two-guard on the depth chart, so it would certainly be strange to see Phoenix dish out a rest day to the second-year player on a non-back-to-back set. Owners will need to check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off, but if he's out, Derrick Jones Jr. would likely draw the start and T.J. Warren would immediately emerge as the No. 1 option on offense. Stay tuned.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: If Booker does indeed sit on Tuesday, T.J. Warren will immediately become an elite target in all formats considering he'd be a good bet to get up 16-20 shot attempts against a beat up Hawks team. Warren has been seeing huge minute totals of late and has been exceeding salary-based expectations regularly since Eric Bledsoe was pulled out of the rotation. Derrick Jones, Marquess Chriss, Tyler Ulis and Leandro Barbosa also benefit.

Al Jefferson (sprained left ankle) will miss at least the next 2 weeks of action for Indiana.

If Jefferson is able to meet the 2-week timetable, there's a chance he could get back to the court for Indiana's final regular season game, but there are no guarantees that will happen. Jefferson was only averaging 11 minutes a game through the month of March, so his absence won't have any real impact in fantasy hoops. Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas may play more, but that doesn't mean much.
Mar 28 - 5:06 PM

Rodney Stuckey (left patellar tendon strain) is expected to miss four to six weeks.

Stuckey sustained the injury in Sunday night’s victory over Philadelphia. With less than three weeks left in the regular season, we have seen the last of Stuckey. He should be on waivers in all fantasy leagues. 2016-17 was a frustrating and injury-filled campaign Stuckey. He'll finish the season having appeared in just 39 games. Monta Ellis and C.J. Miles will see additional minutes with Stuckey on the shelf.

Derrick Rose is not being listed as a starter in the game notes for Wednesday's matchup with Miami.

The game notes list Ron Baker as New York's starting point guard, but it's worth pointing out that the game notes are notoriously unreliable, and this report is stemming from Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinal and not a New York beat reporter. We should have a better idea on Rose's status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if both he and Carmelo Anthony are indeed rested on Wednesday night, Kristaps Porzingis would see a nice uptick in usage.

Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose are not being listed as starters in the game notes for Wednesday's matchup with Miami.

First and foremost, the game notes are notoriously unreliable, so things certainly could change as we get closer to Wednesday's tip, but it does seem like New York is at least contemplating dishing out rest days to their veterans. The game notes list Ron Baker, Courtney Lee, Mindaugas Kuzminskas, Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez as the starters for Wednesday night, and owners can expect to get a more official update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Ronnie Price (leg) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

Price has spent the past five games on the sidelines, and with both him and Leandro Barbosa (hamstring) being listed as questionable for tonight's game, we could again see Tyler Ulis forced into heavy minutes. Stay tuned.
Mar 28 - 4:40 PM

Dennis Smith Jr. announced on Tuesday that he will enter the 2017 NBA draft.

"I have a good chance of being picked at a pretty good spot in the draft, in terms of being early," Smith said. "A lot of people are saying lottery [pick], and I'm a firm believer in that. I believe my work ethic has earned me that right. ... I think the time is now." Smith compiled averages of 18.1 points, 6.2 assists and 4.6 rebounds in his only season with the Wolfpack, and he is indeed projected to be a lottery selection on draft day.

Leandro Barbosa (hamstring) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

The hamstring issue forced Barbosa to the sidelines on Sunday, which resulted in Tyler Ulis logging heavy minutes. If he's out again tonight, it'll be more of the same.
Mar 28 - 3:00 PM

The Knicks have assigned Chasson Randle to their D-League affiliate.

As long as the Knicks are at full strength, Randle won't be worth a roster spot in most leagues.
