Updating a previous report, Tyson Chandler (hip) will play Friday vs. the Trail Blazers.
Chandler has been sidelined for the past two games, but he'll return to the starting lineup tonight for what should be an exciting uptempo game against Portland. Bernard James will head back to the bench with this news, and his demotion to the second unit will make him a non-factor in nearly all leagues. Get Tyson active.
Playoff teams around the league are again checking in with JaVale McGee after contract talks with the Boston Celtics fell through.
The Warriors, Mavericks, Raptors, Spurs, Heat, and Bulls have all expressed interest in signing McGee, but he's not likely to earn enough minutes in the rotation with any of those clubs to be able to produce any reliable value in most fantasy leagues. McGee reportedly wants a player option for next season (which is the reason his contract talks fell apart in Boston), and it'll be interesting to see if any of these contending teams cater to his demands.
Avery Bradley (left elbow sprain) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.
Bradley isn't even traveling with the team right now, so we're going to have to consider him questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Magic as well. With Bradley sidelined, Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, and Isaiah Thomas will all have the opportunity to see extended minutes, with Thomas offering the most upside as the guy who will likely be asked to carry a heavier load on offense.
Chandler Parsons (ankle) will remain sidelined for at least two more games.
That means Parsons will be unavailable for Thursday's game vs. the Trail Blazers, as well as Friday's matchup with the Warriors. He did however say that he is hopeful to suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers, so we'll be considering him questionable for that one. With Parsons sidelined, Richard Jefferson will continue to start with Al-Farouq Aminu seeing extended minutes off the bench.
Tyson Chandler (hip) went through shootaround this morning, and he remains probable for Thursday's game vs. Portland.
Head coach Rick Carlisle said "it's looking good," for Chandler suiting up for tonight's game, a move that will send Bernard James back to the bench and to irrelevancy in most leagues. Go ahead and get Chandler in your active lineups.
Nick Johnson has been sent down for a D-League stint.
Johnson only managed to play a total of two minutes through the entire month of February, so he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Updating a previous report, JaVale McGee will not be heading to Boston.
The two sides apparently couldn't come to an agreement on the terms of McGee's contract, so he will seek employment elsewhere. McGee is averaging a meager 4.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks on the season, and unless your league awards points for appearances on Shaqtin' a Fool, McGee belongs on the waiver wire.
Kris Humphries (groin) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. Miami.
It will again be Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin splitting Humphries' reserve minutes, but neither guy can be viewed as a viable option in most leagues.
