Wizards waive G Toure Murry.

The ankle injury cost him his roster spot and the Wizards will need some healthy bodies right now. Garrett Temple (hamstring) is already hurt and now Bradley Beal (ankle) is banged up. Murry could be back wit the team soon.
Mar 26 - 9:17 PM

Jazz waive G Ian Clark.

He hasn't been getting playing time even with the Jazz becoming very thin on the wing. Clark was the 2013-14 Summer League MVP, but it hasn't translated to NBA production.
Mar 26 - 8:03 PM

Jazz sign G/F Chris Johnson.

The Bucks let him go today and the Jazz didn't hesitate to grab him. Considering Rodney Hood (illness) is still not well, Johnson may get some minutes. He'll compete with Elijah Millsap for playing time. Johnson is only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Mar 26 - 7:57 PM

Luis Scola will start in place of David West (illness) against the Bucks on Thursday.

In his previous 15 starts, Scola averaged 8.9 points, 7.5 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.5 blocks and 0.7 steals, With Rodney Stuckey (calf) also out, there should be more shots to go around, so Scola may have a chance to score in the teens. Give him a look if you're looking for a last-second stream spot.
Mar 26 - 7:31 PM

David West (illness) will not play against the Bucks on Thursday.

He is dealingg with an allergic reaction and it's unknown if this has anything to do with his Friday illness that caused him to play just 12 minutes. With West out, Luis Scola will step in and get most of the minutes at power forward. The Pacers will also likely count on the rest of their starting five to pick up more of the scoring burden.
Mar 26 - 7:07 PM

Jamal Crawford (calf) is optimistic he will be able to return this season.

Players tend to be overly optimistic when discussing their injuries, so we wouldn't read too much into this. Crawford is not currently traveling with the team on their road trip, and with no clear return date in site, he belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes will continue to log heavy minutes in his absence.
Mar 26 - 7:03 PM

Chris Johnson's second 10-day contract with the Bucks has expired, and the team has decided not to sign him for the remainder of the regular season.

Head coach Jason Kidd said he believes Johnson will land a 10-day deal with the Jazz, so we'll be watching for that. However, he's going to have a very limited role wherever he winds up, and until he finds a new team, Johnson belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Mar 26 - 6:47 PM
Rodney Hood - G/F - Jazz

Rodney Hood (illness) did not travel with the team for their road-game in Denver.

We'll be considering Hood doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets, and if he is indeed unavailable, Elijah Millsap and Joe Ingles will have the opportunity to play extended minutes. Stay tuned.
Mar 26 - 6:35 PM

Gordon Hayward (shoulder) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Hayward spent the past two games on the sidelines, but it appears he'll be able to return to the lineup on Friday for a favorable matchup against the Nuggets. With Hayward back, Elijah Millsap and Trey Burke would be candidates to head back to the bench. Check back for another update on Hayward's status closer to Friday's tip.
Mar 26 - 6:29 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Thursday against the Pacers.

Mayo was limited to just six minutes when he returned to action on Tuesday, but head coach Jason Kidd said he'll "add minutes" for Mayo tonight. That's a pretty vague quote, but we doubt Mayo would see his minutes much higher than the 20s. With a tough matchup against the Pacers, and a lot of uncertainty around how much floor time Mayo will see tonight, he's not a great option in most leagues.
Mar 26 - 6:28 PM

Jared Dudley (knee) will play Thursday vs. the Pacers.

Dudley had some good stretches during the season, but his play has really fallen off during the month of March with averages of just 2.5 points and 3.0 rebounds per game on 22.2 percent shooting from the field. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation, so it's safe to leave Dudley on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Mar 26 - 6:20 PM

The Spurs have re-assigned rookie F Kyle Anderson to their D-League affiliate.

Anderson is a negligible part of the Spurs' rotation, so there aren't any fantasy implications with this news. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 26 - 5:53 PM

Patrick Beverley is reportedly seeking to get a second opinion on the torn ligament in his left wrist to decide whether or not he will need to undergo surgery.

We'll be monitoring this situation closely, but with Beverley set to miss at least the next week of action, he belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will man the point guard position in his absence, but neither guy is really capable of doing enough on the stat sheet to be considered a viable option in standard leagues.
Mar 26 - 5:48 PM

Chris Andersen (calf) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

With Andersen questionable and Hassan Whiteside (hand) doubtful, Udonis Haslem could again be forced into heavy minutes Friday, with Luol Deng spending some time at the four-spot. Haslem would be worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues if both Andersen and Whiteside are unavailable.
Mar 26 - 5:37 PM

Dwyane Wade (knee) is questionable to play Friday vs. Atlanta.

Wade was forced to spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines, which resulted in Mario Chalmers sliding into the starting unit, although he only managed to put up six points and seven assists over 37 minutes of action. If Wade is again unavailable on Friday, look for Goran Dragic and Luol Deng to do the heavy lifting on offense, with Chalmers and Henry Walker likely seeing extended minutes.
