  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) leaves game
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a left ankle sprain on Friday and will not return.

    Advice: He was able to limp to the locker room under his own power, but he was moving slowly. At this point, he's likely going to be out for the rest of the game. With Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller (shoulder) out, Jason Maxiell, Marvin Williams and Gerald Henderson will step up. MKG exited with 11 points, eight boards and one block. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight warming up without brace
    Brandon Knight (ankle) is warming up without a brace for Friday's game against the Blazers.

    Advice: That's usually a good sign that he'll play, but nothing is official. We should have another update shortly. He is likely to come off the bench and take minutes away from Archie Goodwin and Marcus Morris. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Darrell Arthur (calf) out again on Friday
    Darrell Arthur (calf) will not play against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: It'll be his second consecutive game out with a nagging calf injury. This is his third different flare up with this injury and he's likely going to be out for a few more. Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and Wilson Chandler should get his minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) out 1-2 weeks
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) is expected to miss the next 1-2 weeks.

    Advice: He has low back pain and tightness, so the Rockets are going to be very thin at power forward. Motiejunas was playing very well and scored 21 points on Wednesday, but he's suddenly a cut candidate in all leagues. It'll be Josh Smith getting all the minutes he can handle until Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) can return -- he could be back next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Garnett (illness) out on Friday
    Kevin Garnett (illness, knee) will not play against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: He has been ill for five days and is not at the arena. Garnett could be out for the season with some sort of soreness in his knee, so keep him on the wire. Justin Hamilton could play more, but he may still be dealing with a head issue. Rotoworld.com

  • Klay Thompson no longer with minutes limit
    Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr said that Klay Thompson (ankle) will no longer be with a hard minutes limit, but he would still like to keep at around 25-30 minutes.

    Advice: Basically, if the Warriors can get another blowout tonight expect to see Klay on the bench early. That being said, even if Klay is held to the lower-end of the minutes spectrum, that's still plenty of time for him to produce quality statistics for his fantasy teams, and remains a must-start guy every time he's in uniform. Get him active. Rotoworld.com

  • Mario Chalmers back to the bench Friday
    Mario Chalmers will return to the bench for Friday's game vs. the Hawks with Dwyane Wade back in action.

    Advice: Chalmers is averaging 10.2 points, 2.8 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game as a reserve, so his value takes a bit of a hit with the demotion to the second unit. He's not a great guy to play on such a busy Friday night. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (knee) in the starting lineup
    Dwyane Wade (knee) is in the starting lineup against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: Apparently Wade really wants to play on 2 Chainz night in the ATL. He was not expected to play earlier today and skipped shootaround this morning. For what it's worth, Wade was in the starting lineup on Wednesday, but he didn't play in that game. Start him at your own risk in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal (ankle) is starting vs. Hornets
    Bradley Beal (ankle) will start against the Hornets on Friday.

  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) out for Friday
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) will not play against the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: He could miss a couple more games because he couldn't even make it through shootaround today. With Donuts out, Josh Smith will start and could play minutes in the mid 30s. Expect to see more Trevor Ariza at the four. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeremy Lin (illness) will play on Friday
    Jeremy Lin (illness) will play against the Raptors on Friday night.

  • Chris Andersen (calf) out Friday vs. Atlanta
    Chris Andersen (calf) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: With Hassan Whiteside (hand) and Andersen unavailable, Udonis Haslem will likely be forced into heavy minutes again tonight, and he's worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Henry Walker, Luol Deng, and Michael Beasley will all likely split minutes at the four-spot, with Deng offering the most upside out of that group. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (knee) is a game-time decision
    Dwyane Wade (knee) is a game-time decision to face the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Erik Spoelstra hinted earlier today that Wade is a little closer to doubtful, so we're cautiously not expecting Wade to suit up tonight. If he is out, Mario Chalmers will likely slide into the starting lineup with Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson also stepping up. Rotoworld.com

  • Kings selling Sauce Castillo shirts
    The Kings are now selling Sauce Castillo T-shirts on their website.

    Advice: On Tuesday morning, nobody knew what a Sauce Castillo was. Now, it's become one of the greatest nicknames in all of sports because of a closed-caption mistake. The internet can be so great sometimes. As for Mr. Castillo himself, he'll need to get it going off the dribble in order to have fantasy value in almost any league. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Kaman (shoulder) set to play on Friday
    Chris Kaman (shoulder) is probable to play against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: He has been out since last week and the Blazers were able to get Joel Freeland some minutes. Kaman will likely be close to 15-20 minutes and is only an option in very deep leagues on a 13-game night. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:45 am
  • Nicolas Batum (back) probable to play on Friday
    Nicolas Batum (back) is probable to play against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: He missed the last two games and should be ready to play tonight. Batum reportedly looked good in warmups on Wednesday, but the team still held him out. Hopefully he doesn't aggravate his back injury and puts up a big line in what should be a high-scoring game. Dorell Wright can be dropped in most leagues while C.J. McCollum will also take a big hit.

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) a game-time decision
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game vs. the Trail Blazers.

    Advice: Knight has missed the past seven games, so if he is able to go, he'll likely have his minutes held in check, as his conditioning is likely not where it needs to be. Owners will need to check back for another update closer to tip-off, but with 13 games being played tonight, Knight is not necessarily a must-start guy in standard leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Chalmers likely to get another start Friday
    With Dwyane Wade (knee) not likely to play Friday vs. the Hawks, Mario Chalmers looks like he'll get another game with the starting unit.

    Advice: Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hinted that he'll go with the same starting lineup from Wednesday which featured Goran Dragic, Mario Chalmers, Luol Deng, Henry Walker, and Udonis Haslem. Chalmers will see a boost in value as a starter, and he'll have a favorable matchup against the Hawks, so he's someone to consider in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal (ankle) goes through shootaround
    Bradley Beal (ankle) went through shootaround, but he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Beal said it's possible that he plays tonight, but he wants to go through pre-game warmups before making an official decision. It sounds like Beal may be headed for the dreaded game-time decision, so owners will need to check back for an update on his status closer to tip-off. If he sits, Rasual Butler, Otto Porter, and Martell Webster would split his minutes. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Spoelstra says Chris Andersen unlikely Friday
    Updating a previous report, Erik Spoelstra said there is a slim chance that Chris Andersen (calf) is able to play Friday vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: This runs contrary to Andersen's comments that he thought he'd be able to play tonight, so we'll be watching this story closely. If Birdman is unable to go, it will leave Udonis Haslem as the only healthy big on the roster, and he'll more than likely be forced into heavy minutes. Haslem double-doubled through 38 minutes of action during his last outing, so he'll be worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues if Andersen is forced to sit. Stay tuned.

  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) misses shootaround
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) did not participate during shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Motiejunas isn't headed in the right direction after missing shootaround, so we're going to consider him closer to doubtful than questionable for tonight's game. If he's unable to go, Josh Smith would get all the run he can handle, and he'll be well worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (knee) misses shootaround Friday
    Dwyane Wade (knee) did not go through shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: Head coach Erik Spoelstra said that he doesn't expect Wade to play tonight, so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable. If he is forced to sit, expect Goran Dragic and Luol Deng to see some increased opportunity on offense, with Mario Chalmers likely starting at the two-spot. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Andersen (calf) says he'll play Friday
    Chris Andersen (calf) said that he will play Friday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: With Hassan Whiteside (hand) very unlikely to play tonight, the Heat could really use Andersen in the lineup. Birdman would have the opportunity to start if he is able to suit up, but with averages of just 8.0 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks with the starting unit, his value is limited to deeper leagues. Check back for an official update on Andersen closer to tip-off. Rotoworld.com

  • Robinson (knee) may not be retained by LAC
    The Clippers are reportedly waiting to see how Nate Robinson's knee is recovering before deciding whether or not to sign him for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: Robinson's second 10-day contract with the club expired on Thursday, and given that the Clippers have not yet signed him, he's not going to be available for Friday's game vs. the Sixers. Through nine games with the Clippers, Robinson put in averages of 5.1 points and 2.2 assists over 14 minutes of action. His reserve minutes will likely go to Austin Rivers, and at this point, it's safe to cut Robinson in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Garnett (knee) doubtful Friday vs. HOU
    Kevin Garnett (knee) is doubtful to play Friday vs. Houston.

    Advice: It's a road game, so it's very likely Garnett will be wearing a suit on Friday. Expect Gorgui Dieng to get all the run he can handle, with Adreian Payne seeing his minutes in the 20s. Garnett belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Hornacek hopeful Knight (ankle) can play Fri.
    Suns' head coach Jeff Hornacek said he is hopeful that Brandon Knight (ankle) will be able to return to the lineup for Friday's game vs. Portland.

    Advice: Knight was running sprints, and played some one-on-one during Thursday's practice, and the Suns are currently listing him as the dreaded game-time decision. Owners will need to check back closer to Friday's tip, but if he is able to go, Marcus Morris' run with the starting unit will more than likely come to an end. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    Donatas Motiejunas (lower back pain) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: If Motiejunas is unable to go on Friday, Josh Smith would likely slide into the starting lineup, and he'd get all the run he can handle as the only healthy power forward on the roster.

  • Wittman says Beal's ankle 'not too bad'
    Wizards' head coach Randy Wittman said that Bradley Beal's sprained right ankle is "not too bad," and the swelling has gone down.

    Advice: Beal was able to walk off the court without any assistance following his ankle injury, and he didn't require a walking boot or crutches when he left the arena, which are all positive signs. We'll be considering Beal questionable for Friday's game against the Hornets, and owners can expect to get another update on his status following Friday morning's shootaround. If he's unable to go, it'll be Rasual Butler, Otto Porter, and Martell Webster splitting his minutes, although none of those guys are worth an add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Nik Stauskas scored 13 points on 5-of-7 from the field against the Suns on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes.

    Advice: For those in the nickname game, "Sauce Castillo" was trending on Twitter in Sacramento, which is one of the best nicknames we've seen in a while. He's bounced back from his weak sauce February that included him making just 11.1 percent from the field, but he still has a lot of work to do. While his nickname alone puts him on the map, he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Surprise: Nic Batum gets a DNP Wednesday
    Nicolas Batum was actually listed as a starter at one point on Wednesday, and it then sounded like he would come off the bench for the Blazers as he deals with a sore back. However, he never got into the game.

    Advice: We're not quite sure what happened here, but the Blazers were not comfortable playing him tonight. The fact he appeared to be a go should be viewed as good news though, and hopefully he'll be back on Friday against the Suns. Allen Crabbe got the surprise start, but Dorell Wright had 15 points, five boards and three 3-pointers, and looks like the safest option if Batum is going to miss more time. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: With Dwight Howard still on a minutes limit, Donuts was still able to eat. He should have another couple weeks of solid fantasy value in standard formats. It's also worth noting he played much more than Josh Smith (24 minutes) tonight. Start Motiejunas on Friday against the Wolves. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal (ankle) out for game vs. Indy
    Bradley Beal (right ankle) will not return to Wednesday's game due to an ankle sprain.

    Advice: He was in a lot of pain after rolling his ankle on a drive to the basket. Beal does have some issues with his lower right leg and hopefully this doesn't affect that issue. If he's out, it'll be a group effort of Rasual Butler and Otto Porter stepping up. Neither are worth grabbing in most leagues while owners in deep leagues can take a look at either depending on need. Martell Webster started the second half and maybe he gets some run, too. Rotoworld.com

    Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play on Wednesday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Mar. 7 and the move to acquire him for Thaddeus Young is making less sense by the day because the team has said it's not tanking. Justin Hamilton benefits most while Adreian Payne could play more, too. Garnett could be dropped everywhere, obviously. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: "Wade fell on his left knee in last night’s game and it continued to swell overnight," according to the team. Without Wade the Heat are going to be in dire straits for offense. Goran Dragic is going to dominate the offense and has a monster upside while Mario Chalmers and Tyler Johnson are also more attractive plays. Michael Beasley may take 25 shots tonight.

The Blazers are hopeful Batum can play at some point on the upcoming road trip, which is just for today and Friday. If he's out, Alonzo Gee or Dorell Wright would likely start. Coach Terry Stotts started Gee on Tuesday with Wright at the four, but the matchup is a little different this time around against a big Utah front line.

    Advice: Thompson wasn't even expected to play tonight until his status rapidly improved during the afternoon, so this is all gravy for owners relying on him in fantasy playoffs. He added one 3-pointer without any turnovers in 24 minutes and should see his playing time slowly increase during Golden State's games on Friday (at Memphis), Saturday (at Milwaukee) and Tuesday (at the Clippers).

    Advice: It's likely that Lin will start the rest of the season and fantasy owners should plug him into all active lineups. The Lakers are drifting toward the draft lottery but Lin will be playing with a purpose -- his $8.4 million contract expires this summer, setting him up for a nice payday in free agency. L.A.'s upcoming schedule also helps his case, as they're tied with Charlotte for the most remaining games. Rotoworld.com

  • Mario Chalmers chips in 14 pts off Heat bench
    Mario Chalmers scored 14 points with one 3-pointer, two assists and three steals in 27 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's crushing loss in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Before the game Erik Spoelstra told reporters, "For the next month each game will have the feel of playoff intensity." The No. 7 seed Heat were facing the No. 6 seed Bucks tonight and they blew a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter, so there's sure to be some soul-searching during their flight to Boston. Chalmers hasn't been worth owning in 12-team leagues since Goran Dragic (16 points, six assists) took over the starting PG job. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade scores 21 but Heat blow huge lead
    Dwyane Wade's 21 points, four assists and three steals weren't enough to avoid an 88-89 loss vs. the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Since the All-Star break, only Russell Westbrook has a higher usage rate than Wade (34.7 percent), and he earned Player of the Week honors for his stellar play from March 16 -22, when he averaged 24.5 points on 53.2 percent shooting, 2.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.3 steals. He's only missed one game since mid-February and he's peaking at the perfect time for fantasy owners and the Heat, who are still locked in a tight race for a playoff spot. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Kaman (shoulder) will not play Tues
    Chris Kaman (shoulder) will not play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Blazers will probably err on the side of caution with Kaman moving forward in an effort to keep him fresh for the playoffs, so we wouldn't expect him to play unless he is 100 percent. The Blazers play again on Wednesday vs. the Jazz, so Kaman should be considered doubtful for that one as well. With LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) also out of the lineup, expect Joel Freeland and Meyers Leonard to see an uptick in minutes, though neither player is very appealing in most leagues right now.

  • Nicolas Batum (back) expected to sit Tuesday
    Nicolas Batum (back) didn't go through warmups and he's not listed as a starter for Tuesday's game vs. Golden State.

    Advice: Batum didn't practice on Monday and he was listed as doubtful prior to being ruled out, so this shouldn't catch any owners by surprise. The extremely short-handed Blazers will rely on Alonzo Gee, Dorell Wright, C.J. McCollum and Arron Afflalo to pick up extra playing time in Batum's absence, with Gee taking Batum's spot in the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Thompson said that he felt good after playing 18 minutes vs. the Wizards on Monday, and his owners can feel free to plug him in to active lineups despite the light workload. There is always a chance that the Warriors decide to rest him for a game or two down the stretch, so his owners should keep a close eye on the injury report. Rotoworld.com

    Nate Robinson (knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

  • Klay Thompson feels good after return
    Klay Thompson (ankle) said he felt good after Monday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: While Thompson played just 18 minutes in Monday's blowout win over the Wizards, his comments after the game should make fantasy owners feel better. "It felt good," Thompson said of his ankle. "I'm excited to be back, and just it's good to feel no pain and just be healthy." While Steve Kerr may elect to rest Thompson at times down the stretch, he's still a must-start option for his ability to rack up three-pointers in bunches. Rotoworld.com

  • Klay Thompson (ankle) returns in blowout win
    Klay Thompson (ankle) returned to action in the Warriors' 107-76 blowout win over the Wizards on Monday, playing just 18 minutes with eight points on 3-of-9 shooting (no threes), one board, three assists and one steal.

    Advice: Thompson might have hurt a few owners tonight but the good news is that he returned to action early and didn't need to exert himself tonight. In fact, that's the biggest factor in his dud, and the rest of the box score wasn't exactly kind to folks either. Stephen Curry survived with 24 points, five treys, five boards, six assists and two steals, but everybody else was limited by the bench being emptied. Steve Kerr said he "didn't think" he'd rest anybody on Tuesday's road back-to-back against Portland, leaving the door open to do exactly that. Rotoworld.com

  • Beal somewhat survives the blowout loss
    Bradley Beal barely survived the Wizards' 31-point blowout loss to the Warriors on Monday, hitting 4-of-11 shots (including two threes) for 12 points, two rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Beal is getting minutes and he simply needs to hit shots to pay owners off for a bad season. If everything is absolutely clicking for him he can sneak into some mid-round value, but with the way things have gone he'll be lucky to post late-round numbers the rest of the way. The rest of the Wizards' box score is not suitable for children and should probably be ignored for evaluation purposes. Rotoworld.com

    Donatas Motiejunas scored 17 points with two rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer on 6-of-9 from the field in 38 minutes against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: He is going to be a bigger part of the offense until Dwight Howard (knee) gets back, which could be as soon as Wednesday. Motiejunas should still be able to put up decent value in standard leagues because Dwight will be limited and is not expected to play in both games on a back-to-back set. Rotoworld.com

  • Klay Thompson officially a go for Monday
    Klay Thompson (ankle) will play against the Wizards on Monday.

    Advice: He is going to have around a 25-minute limit tonight in his first game back. Thompson has been jogging since Wednesday and should be close to 100 percent while he's out there. Start him. Meanwhile, Justin Holiday and Leandro Barbosa can be dropped in most leagues unless you want to use them on Tuesday and have a matchup acquisition limit per week. Rotoworld.com

    Nicolas Batum (back) did not practice on Monday and is doubtful to play on Tuesday.

    Advice: One season after the Blazers were one of the healthiest teams in decades, they're dealing with some injuries right now. Batum does have a couple minor injuries to his back, but this isn't a trend for him. Still, he appears doubtful to play on Tuesday. With Batum out, C.J.

    Klay Thompson (ankle) has been upgraded to probable to play against the Wizards on Monday.

    Advice: He was doubtful about 90 minutes ago and now it sounds like he'll have a chance to play. Thompson has been able to jog since Wednesday and could be close to 100 percent even though he was expected to be out until Tuesday. Looking ahead, the Warriors have a road-road back-to-back set coming up on Friday and Saturday, so Klay and company could rest one of those games, too.

    Kevin Garnett (knee) is doubtful to play against the Jazz on Monday.

    Klay Thompson (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Wizards on Monday.

It will also mean more minutes for Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala, and it would seem as if Thompson's status for Tuesday's game is in doubt as well with the Warriors off until Friday after that.

  • Lin, Davis could start for Lakers soon?
    Jeremy Lin and Ed Davis could soon begin starting for the Lakers.

    Advice: Byron Scott previously said that he wanted Lin to get back into the starting lineup before the season concluded, and he's running out of time if he wants to make that happen. Just because both guys could join the starting lineup doesn't guarantee either anything in terms of playing time, but it would certainly add some on-the-surface appeal to each down the stretch. Regardless, both players should be owned in the majority of leagues already. As a starter, Lin is averaging 11.6 points, five dimes, 1.1 steals and 1.1 triples on 44.9 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • Nicolas Batum (back) looking doubtful Tuesday
    Nicolas Batum's (back) status for Tuesday's game in the Warriors is in doubt after leaving Saturday's game early.

    Advice: Batum felt a shooting pain up his legs and back after landing "awkwardly" on his heels, and after the game he had a tough time standing up, so none of that sounds very good at all. With Batum unlikely to suit up, that would mean a larger role for Dorell Wright, who would likely start in Batum's place, with C.J. McCollum also playing extended minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com

    Jeremy Lin (back spasms) got hot in the second half of Sunday's 101-87 win over the Sixers, finishing with a season-high 29 points on 10-of-16 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs.

    Advice: Lin made two 3-pointers with five boards, five assists and one steal, and he did it all in just 29 minutes of action. His back was reportedly 6-8 inches out of alignment as recently as Saturday, which makes tonight's sparkling performance even more impressive. He's expected to start the final 10 games of the season, unless Byron Scott changes his mind, which is good news for roto owners and anyone whose season continues until the bitter end. As a late-round value with upside, Lin deserves to be owned in most standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: MKG added one block and his offensive improvement has been fun to watch this season -- shot selection has been the biggest key, and tonight all but three of his shots came within two feet of the hoop.

    Bradley Beal was the only Wizard to score more than 11 points on Sunday, finishing a disappointing road loss with 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting, three rebounds, four assists and one steal.

    Advice: Washington was flat from the opening tip and they've now lost two straight games, leaving them 1.5 games behind Chicago for the No. 4 seed and first-round homecourt advantage. Beal's owners can't complain as he's finally rolling after an injury-plagued season during which he's missed 18 games and averaged just 14.8 points, down from 17.1 points last season. With four games on tap this week, Beal is poised to be a difference-maker in fantasy playoffs. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He helped pester Russell Westbrook into 5-of-16 shooting, though WB still racked up his 10th triple-double of the season. It wasn't all good for Chalmers, as he shot 4-of-14 from the field and didn't have any assists. His value has plummetted since Goran Dragic arrived in Miami and owners in 12-team leagues should leave him floating on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Friday and did not return. Kaman had a minor shoulder injury back in 2011, but it's certainly not a trend. With Kaman out for most of Friday, coach Terry Stotts went with a combination of C.J. McCollum and Meyers Leonard to fill in. Considering Kaman is only playing in the teens and Stotts doesn't have a consistent rotation when a wing or big is out, fantasy owners shouldn't trust C.J. or Meyers. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade scores 32 in win over Blazers
    Dwyane Wade hit 13-of-26 shots for 32 points, four rebounds, six assists and a steal in Wednesday's win.

    Advice: Wade is surprisingly healthy these days, as well as on fire. He's scored at least 25 points in each of his last five games and is averaging 30.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.8 steals on 55 percent shooting. Hopefully he keeps playing until the end of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal will not have any restrictions
    Despite dealing with a variety of minor ailments, Bradley Beal will not have any restrictions on the Wizards' upcoming 4-game road trip.

    Advice: Beal has been a little rusty since returning from his leg injury on Feb. 28, but he was able to drop 23 points with seven assists in 39 minutes vs. the Blazers on Monday, which was the most action he has seen since the beginning of February. As long as Beal doesn't suffer any setbacks in his lower right leg, he will likely continue to battle through injuries as the Wizards look to bolster their position in the Eastern Conference. Deploy him with confidence. Rotoworld.com

  • Nate Robinson notches 12 points in home win
    Nate Robinson was one of five Clippers in double-figures vs. the Hornets, scoring 12 points with two 3-pointers, two assists and one rebound in 21 minutes of action.

    Advice: He's no Jamal Crawford, but the Clippers' bench needs all the scoring Nate can provide with J-Craw out indefinitely and Matt Barnes (hamstring) day-to-day. He's worth a look for temporary value in deeper leagues, but most owners can safely ignore him. Rotoworld.com

  • Donatas Motiejunas leads Houston w/ 23 points
    Donatas Motiejunas lit up the Magic for a team-high 23 points with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds and four assists on Tuesday, helping the Rockets earn a 13-point victory.

    Advice: Orlando ranks No. 26 in defensive efficiency, allowing 105.4 points per 100 possessions, so it's no surprise to see D-Mo take advantage of the matchup. He saw more opportunities early with Terrence Jones coming off the bench in the first half, and with any luck this will spark an offensive resurgence -- he was making 37.9 percent FGs and 41.2 percent FTs over his previous six games.

  • LAC ink Nate Robinson to second 10-day deal
    The Clippers have signed Nate Robinson to a second 10-day contract.

    Advice: Robinson is averaging just 4.0 points and 2.0 assists on 24.1 percent shooting through 14.7 minutes of action with the Clippers this season. He'll add some emergency depth the LAC's backcourt, but he belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade scores 32 in win over Cavs
    Dwyane Wade was in superstar mode during a 106-92 win over the Cavs on Monday, scoring 32 points with two rebounds, two assists and a season-high five steals in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He was 13-of-18 from the field and just did whatever he wanted on offense for his second 30-point game against the Cavs this season. "When we play the way we played tonight on both ends of the floor, we know we can beat anyone," Wade said. It sounds like the Heat are now going for the postseason and they're sitting in the No. 8 spot right now with the tiebreaker over Boston. Wade will have much more fantasy value if the Heat stay in the hunt. Rotoworld.com
