Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (back) missed Friday's game against the Lakers and is is questionable, at best, for Monday's game against Houston
Insight: There doesn't seem to be any change in his status. Lowry has stated that he will not rush back, so without a firm timetable, Greivis Vasquez and Lou Williams will continue to have increased value.

Description: Suns guard Brandon Knight played Sunday against the Thunder, but is is doubtful for Monday's game against Portland.
Insight: Back-to-back after just returning from injury might be too much to expect. he played 22 minutes and shot a rusty 1-of-10 for three points. Expect him to return for Thursday's game against Golden State.
Tony Allen, G, MEM3/30/2015 11:17:00 AM
Description: Grizzlies guard Tony Allen is questionable for Monday's game against Sacramento due to a strained left hamstring.

Jeremy Lin, G, LAL3/30/2015 11:16:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Jeremy Lin is questionable for Monday's game against Philadelphia due to illness.
Insight: Lin missed Sunday's game with an upper respiratory infection. His absence allows Jordan Clarkson to play 30-plus minutes and be a viable fantasy option.

Description: Charlotte G/F Jeff Taylor got the start Saturday for the injured Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, but again didn't do anything to excite fantasy owners.
Insight: Taylor got the start in his place and played 27 minutes on Saturday. He scored nine points with a pair of rebounds and assists. Not really fantasy worthy, but coach Steve Clifford did praise his effort.
Dennis Schroder, G, ATLHot3/30/2015 11:04:00 AM

Description: Hawks point guard Jeff Teague is questionable, at best, for Monday's game against Milwaukee
Insight: The Hawks clinched everything in the east so have the option of sitting guys who aren't 100 percent. Teague isn't close to that. backup Dennis Schroder has posted back-to-back double-doubles and is a viable fantasy option.
Kevin Martin, G, MIN3/30/2015 11:00:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin (hamstring) did not play on Sunday and is questionable to play against the Jazz on Monday.
Insight: Martin is hopeful to return for this week of games, but he'll likely be a game-time decision. he's averaging 20.2 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 2.2 apg when he does play, so is certainly a viable fantasy option.
Ricky Rubio, G, MIN3/30/2015 10:55:00 AM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio did not play on Sunday versus the Pelicans and is listed as questionable for Monday against Utah.
Insight: Rubio has missed the past six games so owners should already have a backup plan in place. Zach LaVine has six straight games posting double-digit points and has averaged 4.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds during that span.
Dion Waiters, SG, CLE3/30/2015 10:42:00 AM
Description: Thunder shooting guard Dion Waiters will have a sore foot checked out when the team returns to Oklahoma City, according to beat writer Royce Young.
Insight: Waiters has been playing through the pain and put up 18 points on 20 shots Sunday night. His 12.7 ppg in March is the highest of the season and he's been a source for scoring on a team that has lost two big-time offensive weapons in Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka.

Kevin Martin, G, MIN3/29/2015 5:32:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin (hamstring) will not play on Sunday.

Ricky Rubio, G, MIN3/29/2015 3:32:00 PM

Brandon Knight, G, PHO3/29/2015 1:31:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Brandon Knight is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Thunder according to the Arizona Republic.

Description: Mavericks guard Monta Ellis will not play on Sunday against the Pacers according to Roto World.
Insight: Ellis is nursing a calf injury which ended his 237 consective games streak. Ellis has no timetable to return. In the meantime, Richard Jefferson will start, and Rajon Rondo will have more fantasy value.
Jameer Nelson, G, DEN3/29/2015 9:43:00 AM
Description: Nuggets point guard Jameer Nelson came off the bench and scored 22 points to led Denver on Saturday versus the Trail Blazers.
Insight: Nelson also had five assists, four 3-pointers, two rebounds and one steal. Without Danilo Gallinari, Nelson is worth a look in fantasy leagues, but Gallinari should return in the team's next game.
Damian Lillard, PG, POR3/29/2015 9:41:00 AM
Description: Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard was 4-for-11 from the field in the, 120-114, victory over the Nuggets on Saturday.

Trey Burke, G, UTA3/29/2015 9:31:00 AM
Description: Jazz point guard Trey Burke came off the bench and led Utah in scoring during the, 94-89, victory over the Thunder.
Insight: Burke was just 8-for-23, including 1-of-8 from the 3-point line, so he didn't shoot all that well, but he did chip in five free throws and lead the team in shot attempts in order to get to 22 points. Burke also had six rebounds, four assists and four steals. Burke is averaging 17.2 ppg in the last five games which includes one game where he only scored six points. That means he has been very impressive in the other four, but it also means he can be a bit inconsistent.

Description: Thunder guard Russell Westbrook scored 37 points but also turned the ball over nine times on Saturday against the Jazz.
Insight: Westbrook was 12-for-29 from the field, including 3-of-9 from downtown in the loss. He also had eight rebounds and six assists. It was another solid outing except in leagues where turnovers count.

Kyle Korver, G/F, ATL3/28/2015 3:53:00 PM
Description: Hawks shooting guard Kyle Korver (rest) won't play Saturday night.
Insight: You will have to look elsewhere for three-pointers. He'll join Jeff Teague (ankle), Al Horford (rest), DeMarre Carroll (rest) and Paul Millsap (rest) on the sidelines.
Jeff Teague, PG, ATL3/28/2015 2:45:00 PM
Description: Hawks point guard Jeff Teague has been downgraded to out for Saturday's game.

Description: Mavericks guard Monta Ellis is doubtful for Sunday after suffering a calf injury, according to Earl K Sneed of mavs.com

Gerald Henderson, G, CHA3/28/2015 11:00:00 AM
Description: Hornets guard/forward Gerald Henderson played 40 minutes Friday night after Michael Kidd-Gilchrist went down with an ankle injury and figures to play just as much on Saturday night.
Insight: MKG is unlikely to be ready to go just 24 hours later, so figure Henderson for a full workload. He set a season mark with 14 rebounds Friday night along with 11 points, two assists, a steal and a block. Henderson could be worth a flier if MKG is sidelined.

Description: Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal left Wednesday's game with an ankle injury and is questionable for Friday night versus Charlotte.
Insight: The team said it didn't seem too bad after the game and he didn't have his foot in a walking boot or on crutches, so perhaps there is a chance he returns, but he's likely to be a game-time decision at best.

Insight: Butler shot 7-of-8 from the field, 7-of-9 from the line, and 2-of-3 from downtown. He also recorded five rebounds, three assists, and one turnover. Butler is a top-10 option in standard leagues.

Description: Magic point guard Elfrid Payton nearly recorded a triple-double during Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.
Insight: He had 19 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal, and five turnovers. Payton should be owned everywhere these days.
Bradley Beal, SG, WAS3/25/2015 8:00:00 PM
Description: Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal left Wednesday's game with an ankle ijury.
Insight: He will not return, as the injury appeared to be serious. Rasual Butler and Otto Porter would see a bump in value if Beal misses time.

Description: Hawks point guard Jeff Teague rolled his ankle Wednesday versus Orlando, but will try to return.
Insight: We will update you if there is anything new to report on.

Kevin Martin, G, MIN3/25/2015 6:56:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin (hamstring) will not play on Wednesday night.
Insight: Chase Budinger will likely start in Martin's place, and should make for an intriguing daily option.
Dwyane Wade, G, MIA3/25/2015 6:26:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade (knee) will miss Wednesday's game versus Boston.
Insight: This comes out of nowhere, especially with Hassan Whiteside out as well. Wade should be back in action next time out.
Alexey Shved, G, NYK3/25/2015 6:24:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Alexey Shved will miss two-to-three weeks with an incomplete rib fracture.
Insight: There is a good chance he miss the remainder of the season, with less than a month left. Langston Galloway will see an even bigger role.
Isaiah Thomas, G, BOS3/25/2015 5:41:00 PM
Description: Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas (back) will play Wednesday versus Miami.
Insight: Get him back into your lineups immediately. Jae Crowder, Evan Turner, and Marcus Smart will all take a hit in value.
Patrick Beverley, G, HOU3/25/2015 3:49:00 PM
Description: Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley has a torn ligamanet in his wrist according to Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Beverley is still considering not having season-ending surgery as he will be re-evaluated in about a week, but fantasy owners in standard leagues can drop him. Jason Terry will be the Rockets starting point guard for the foreseeable future.
Gordon Hayward, G/F, UTA3/25/2015 3:08:00 PM
Description: Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward did not participate in the shootaround on Wednesday and is doubtful to play on Wednesday versus the Trail Blazers according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Insight: Hayward could miss his second straight game. Utah could be very thin if Hayward can't play because Rodney Hood is out as well.
Brandon Knight, G, PHO3/25/2015 3:05:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Brandon Knight is going to be a game-time decision versus the Kings on Wednesday according to Suns.com.
Insight: Knight will probably still come off the bench if he does play, so owners with Marcus Morris can role with him at least another night if need be.
Patrick Beverley, G, HOU3/25/2015 2:46:00 PM
Description: Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley will meet with a specialist, but he won't make a decision about his wrist for probably another week according to the Houston Chronicle.

Description: Grizzlies guard Courtney Lee is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Cavaliers according to Memphis sideline reporter Rob Fischer.

Patrick Beverley, G, HOU3/25/2015 1:08:00 PM
Description: Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley is still out on Wednesday due to his wrist injury according to ESPN Dallas.
Insight: It's possibly that Beverley will have season-ending surgery on his wrist. We should know that sometime Wednesday afternoon. Jason Terry will start in place of Beverley.
Tyreke Evans, G/F, NOP3/25/2015 1:06:00 PM
Description: Pelicans G/F Tyreke Evans and center Omer Asik is expected to play versus the Rockets on Wednesday.
Insight: Evans missed Sunday's game, but should return to his normal amount of minutes Wednesday. This will cause Norris Cole to lose most of his fantasy value.
Kyle Lowry, G, TOR3/25/2015 1:04:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry will not play on Wednesday versus the Bulls.
Insight: Lowry is probably done for awhile after he returned for 11 minutes on Tuesday only to then leave the game with back spasms. He won't rush his return, so owners should not expect him to help much in the fantasy playoffs.
Thabo Sefolosha, G, ATL3/25/2015 1:02:00 PM
Description: Hawks guard Thabo Sefolosha will play on Wednesday against the Magic according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Insight: Sefolosha has missed the last 23 games, so it will be nice to see him back on the floor. He provides depth to a very strong, team-oriented starting five.
Rodney Stuckey, G, IND3/25/2015 12:28:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey will not play on Wednesday due to a calf strain according to The Indianapolis Star.
Insight: An MRI revealed the injury on Wednesday. This is too bad as Stuckey was really starting to hit his stride with Indiana. C.J. Watson, though, scored 23 points without Stuckey in the lineup on Monday, so fantasy owners should consider taking a flier on him.
Derrick Rose, G, CHI3/25/2015 12:25:00 PM
Description: Bulls guard Derrick Rose told the Chicago Tribune that he isn't sore and is still planning to return before the end of the regular season.
Insight: Rose is supposed to be cleared for full contact either this week or next. This is certainly exciting for Bulls fans, but fantasy owners outside of dynasty leagues can ignore him.
C.J. McCollum, G, POR3/25/2015 9:51:00 AM
Description: Trail Blazers point guard C.J. McCollum scored a career-high 23 points off the bench in the loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
Insight: McCollum shot 50 percent from the field, hitting three 3-pointers. He also had three steals, two assists and one rebound. With injuries decimating Portland, McCollum is worth a look in standard leagues.
Klay Thompson, G, GSW3/25/2015 9:45:00 AM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson scored 16 points in 24 minutes on Tuesday versus the Trail Blazers.
Insight: Thompson was expected to play 25 minutes, so this doesn't come as a surprise. As owners say Tuesday, even with a minutes limit, Thompson can still score. He was 6-for-13 from the field with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.
Ish Smith, G, PHI3/25/2015 9:43:00 AM
Description: 76ers guard Ish Smith didn't record a double-double, but he did come close to a triple-double on Tuesday versus the Kings.
Insight: Smith had 13 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in 30 minutes. Since becoming a starter, Smith has put up viable fantasy numbers. He is worth a look in deeper leagues.
Damian Lillard, PG, POR3/25/2015 9:26:00 AM
Description: Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard led Portland with 29 points in the loss to the Warriors on Tuesday.
Insight: Without LaMarcus Aldridge, Lillard took more than twice as many shots as any other Portland starter. He hit more 3-pointers, six, than any other starter had field goals. Lillard also had seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block.
Stephen Curry, G, GSW3/25/2015 9:21:00 AM
Description: Warriors guard Stephen Curry hit five 3-pointers in the, 122-108, victory over the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade led Miami with 21 points, four assists, three steals and two rebounds in the heartbreaking, 89-88, loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.
Insight: Miami had no business losing this game. The Heat led, 85-71, only to see the Bucks go on a 14-0 run to tie the game. Miami led by three with 10 seconds left with Milwaukee at the foul line. The first shot was good, but on the second attempt, there was a tie up that forced a jump ball. Milwaukee won the tip and Khris Middleton hit the game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer. This victory gives Milwaukee some breathing space over Miami in the standings.
Monta Ellis, G, DAL3/24/2015 10:39:00 PM
Description: Mavericks guard Monta Ellis had a big night during Tuesday's win over the Spurs.
Insight: He scored a team-high 38 points on 16-of-27 shooting from the field and 4-of-4 shooting from the line. Ellis also had five dimes, two rebounds, two 3-pointers, two steals, and three turnovers.

Jordan Clarkson, G, LAL3/24/2015 10:16:00 PM
Description: Laker point guard Jordan Clarkson scored a season-high 30 points during Tuesday's loss to the Thunder.
Insight: It was also a team-high. Clarkson shot 12-of-19 from the field, 4-of-6 from the line, and 2-of-3 from downtown. He also managed seven assists, four rebounds, one steal, three blocks, and three turnovers.
Lou Williams, SG, TOR3/24/2015 10:13:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Lou Williams scored 19 points in the loss to the Pistons on Tuesday.
Insight: Williams played 33 minutes off the bench with Kyle Lowry leaving early due to back spasms. He was 6-for-11 from the field and 3-of-6 at the 3-point line. With Lowry likely missing more time, Williams is worth a look in standard leagues.
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, G, DET3/24/2015 10:12:00 PM
Description: Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit five 3-pointers in the, 108-104, victory over the Raptors on Tuesday.

DeMar DeRozan, G/F, TOR3/24/2015 10:10:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan scored 22 points in the loss to the Pistons on Tuesday.
Insight: Point guard Kyle Lowry started the game, but he only played 11 minutes before his back spasms returned. That game DeRozan free reigns again, though, he shot just 5-of-17 from the field. DeRozan did shoot 12-for-12 at the line with 10 rebounds and four assists in addition to the 22 points. If Lowry misses more time, DeRozan will once again see an uptick in fantasy value.
Reggie Jackson, G, DET3/24/2015 10:08:00 PM
Description: Pistons guard Reggie Jackson led Detroit with 28 points and nine assists in the, 108-104, victory over the Raptors on Tuesday.

Klay Thompson, G, GSW3/24/2015 9:24:00 PM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson will play about 25 minutes on Tuesday against the Trail Blazers according to The San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Thompson played 18 minutes on Monday versus the Wizards, so he is slowly working his way back. There is a good chance down the stretch that Thompson rests some days because the Warriors are in firmly in first place, but if Thompson plays, he needs to be in lineups.
Kyle Lowry, G, TOR3/24/2015 9:20:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry left Tuesday's game and will not return according to the team's twitter page.
Insight: Every time Lowry takes a step forward, he takes two steps backs. Lowry dressed in the last two games, but he didn't play. On Tuesday, he finally returned to the starting lineup, but now the back is acting up again. This is a big blow for fantasy owners in the playoffs. Greivis Vasquez and Lou Williams should both see more time without Lowry available.
Manu Ginobili, SG, SAN3/24/2015 7:37:00 PM
Description: Spurs guard Manu Ginobili is expected to play on Tuesday versus the Mavericks according to the San Antonio Express-News.
Insight: Ginobili has missed the last four games, but coach Gregg Popovich expects him to play on Tuesday. Still, Ginobili is a risky play in standard leagues.
Kyle Lowry, G, TOR3/24/2015 6:58:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game versus the Pistons according to TSN Canada. Update: Lowry will start.
Insight: Lowry suited up the last two games, but he didn't play. If he sits, Greivis Vasquez will start again with DeMar DeRozan seeing a lot more opportunities. Check back closer to tip.
Kyle Singler, G, OKC3/24/2015 6:53:00 PM
Description: Thunder SG/SF Kyle Singler will start on Tuesday in place of the injured Andre Roberson according to the Oklahoman.
Insight: Singler started the second half on Sunday without Roberson available. Singler, however, didn't do much and is averaging just 3.5 ppg, 1.9 rpg while shooting 30.4 percent from the field since joining Oklahoma City, so fantasy owners can forget about him.
Kyle Lowry, G, TOR3/24/2015 6:21:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game versus the Pistons according to TSN Canada.
Insight: Lowry suited up the last two games, but he didn't play. If he sits, Greivis Vasquez will start again with DeMar DeRozan seeing a lot more opportunities. Check back closer to tip.
Patrick Beverley, G, HOU3/24/2015 4:33:00 PM
Description: Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley (wrist) may miss an extended period of time, according to coach Kevin McHale.
Insight: He is headed to Houston to undergo testing on his wrist. If Beverley is forced to miss extended time, Jason Terry would likely start, with Pablo Prigioni seeing increased minutes as well.
Stephen Curry, G, GSW3/24/2015 3:25:00 PM
Description: Ever wonder what Warriors guard Stephen Curry could produce if he was on the floor for 40 minutes?
Insight: Curry might need to play heavy minutes with Shaun Livingston being rested and Klay Thompson on a minutes limit. Curry has played 40 minutes or more in four games this season and averaged 30.8 ppg, 6.8 rpg and 7.5 apg in those four games.
Shaun Livingston, G, GSW3/24/2015 3:22:00 PM
Description: Warriors guard Shaun Livingston will not play Tuesday. He's just being rested.
Insight: Livingston isn't fantasy worthy, but his absence should give Stephen Curry more minutes on the floor and that's always a good thing for fantasy owners. Andre Iguodala could also see more time as the Warriors are limiting Klay Thompson's PT after just returning from an injury.
Jason Richardson, SG, PHI3/24/2015 2:51:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Jason Richardson is not expected to be available for Tuesday's game against Sacramento.
Insight: The oft-injured guard has played on and off over the last few weeks, but fantasy owners can't depend on his production even when on the court.
Jimmy Butler, G/F, CHI3/24/2015 2:45:00 PM
Description: Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler made through Monday's game, scoring 19 points and adding nine rebounds.
Insight: Butler didn't shoot well, going 6-of-20, but fantasy owners should assume that's just rust and take away that he's healthy again.
Klay Thompson, G, GSW3/24/2015 2:40:00 PM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson apparently came out of Monday night's game without incident.
Insight: Thompson only played 18 minutes in a blowout win, but this is good news. He could be on a minutes limit for a little while but as long as there is no relapse he should be good to go.
Patrick Beverley, G, HOU3/23/2015 10:39:00 PM
Description: Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley (wrist) may miss an extended period of time, according to coach Kevin McHale.
Insight: He is headed to Houston to undergo testing on his wrist. If Beverley is forced to miss extended time, Jason Terry would likely start, with Pablo Prigioni seeing increased minutes as well.
C.J. Watson, G, IND3/23/2015 10:37:00 PM
Description: Pacers point guard C.J. Watson scored 23 points off the bench in the loss to the Rockets.
Insight: Without Rodney Stuckey, who was out with a calf injury, Watson had more opportunities and took advantage. He hit four 3-pointers, shooting 70 percent overall with five assist, two steals and two rebounds. If Stuckey is out again on Wednesday, Stuckey is a great option for daily leagues.
Kemba Walker, G, CHA3/23/2015 10:29:00 PM
Description: Hornets point guard Kemba Walker scored a game-high 29 points in the loss to the Bulls on Monday.
Insight: Walker shot 11-for-24 from the field, including 2-of-7 from the 3-point line. He, however, had just two assists, two rebounds and one block. Although the assist numbers are still down, it was nice to see Walker score. He is averaging 16.6 ppg, 3.4 apg and 2.8 rpg in the last five games. All those numbers are below his season averages.
Langston Galloway, G, NYK3/23/2015 10:07:00 PM
Description: Knicks point guard Langston Galloway scored a team-high 19 points in New York', 103-82, defeat to Memphis on Monday.
Insight: Without Alexey Shved, Galloway shined shooting 7-for-16 from the field, hitting two 3-pointers. He also had seven rebounds, five assists and a steal. If Shved continues to miss time, Galloway is worth a look in deep leagues.
Evan Turner, G/F, BOS3/23/2015 9:58:00 PM
Description: Celtics guard Evan Turner had triple-double in the, 110-91, victory over the Nets on Monday.

Description: Pacers point guard George Hill led Indiana with 20 points in the, 110-100, loss to the Rockets on Monday.
Insight: The loss was Indiana's sixth straight. In the weak Eastern Conference, the Pacers are still alive for a playoff spot, but they need to turn it around quickly. Hill also had six rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks.
James Harden, G, HOU3/23/2015 9:45:00 PM
Description: Rockets guard James Harden hit 21 free throws on his way to 44 points on Monday versus the Pacers.
Insight: Harden has done an incredible job of getting to the line all season as he leads the league with 8.6 free-throw makes per game and 9.9 attempts per game. In addition to the 44 points, Harden also had seven assists, four rebounds, two steals and two blocks.
Klay Thompson, G, GSW3/23/2015 9:01:00 PM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson will have a 25-minute limit versus the Wizards on Monday according to Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Thompson will play and is supposed to play in four-to-six minutes spurts. This is his first game back in about a week.
Kevin Martin, G, MIN3/23/2015 8:59:00 PM
Description: Hampered by a hamstring injury, Timberwolves Kevin Martin could see a slight decline in playing time on Monday according to team play-by-play announcer Alan Horton.
Insight: No one for sure knows what that means. Martin will still play, but could see fewer minutes.
Ricky Rubio, G, MIN3/23/2015 8:08:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio will not play on Monday versus the Jazz.
Insight: With Rubio sitting out this game, he has missed four of the last five games with his ankle injury. It doesn't sound like Minnesota is going to rush him back as they try and move closer to the best lottery pick. Rubio can be dropped in standard leagues.
Gordon Hayward, G/F, UTA3/23/2015 7:39:00 PM
Description: Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward will not play on Monday versus the Timberwolves due to a shoulder injury according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Insight: This should help Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert quite a bit as they will see more opportunities in the front court. Hayward is leading the Jazz in scoring this season.
Courtney Lee, SG, MEM3/23/2015 6:39:00 PM
Description: Grizzlies guard Courtney Lee is out on Monday against the Knicks due to his hand injury according to team sideline reporter Rob Fischer.
Insight: Memphis should be just fine with Jeff Green and Tony Allen, especially against the lowly Knicks. Lee can be dropped in standard leagues.
Alexey Shved, G, NYKHot3/23/2015 6:36:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Alexey Shved is out for Monday's game versus the Grizzlies due to his rib contusion he suffered on Sunday.
Insight: This is definitely disappointing in the midst of the fantasy playoffs. Shved has been New York's best player, averaging 19.6 ppg, 4.8 apg and 2.4 3-pointers per game in the last five games. Shane Larkin will start in his place, but he doesn't have the same fantasy upside.
Rodney Stuckey, G, IND3/23/2015 6:33:00 PM
Description: Pacers shooting guard Rodney Stuckey will not play on Monday against the Rockets.
Insight: Stuckey suffered a calf injury during Saturday's game and did not return. C.J. Watson and C.J. Miles will see the biggest increase in value without Stuckey on the floor versus the Rockets.
Klay Thompson, G, GSW3/23/2015 3:31:00 PM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Monday's game against Washington, according to Monte Poole of csnbayarea.com
Insight: Fantasy owners like the sound of that, but be wary that if he's not 100 percent they could still hold him out as they are more concerned with being ready for the playoffs than a win now.
J.J. Barea, G, MIN3/23/2015 3:30:00 PM
Description: Guard J.J. Barea will not play in Tuesday's game against San Antonio.
Insight: Barea is dealing with an ankle issue. He has little fantasy value as long as Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis are healthy, which they currently are.
Gordon Hayward, G/F, UTA3/23/2015 1:56:00 PM
Description: Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward is questionable for Monday's game against Minnesota due to a shoulder issue.

Patrick Beverley, G, HOU3/23/2015 1:48:00 PM
Description: Rockets point guard Patrick Beverley played Saturday versus Phoenix, but is still questionable for Monday night due to a sore elbow.
Insight: Jason Terry and Trevor Ariza are also less than 100 percent. If Beverley can't go, Terry and Pablo Prigioni would play at the point, though James Harden is the de facto point guard and shooting guard.
Marcus Smart, G, BOS3/23/2015 1:43:00 PM
Description: Celtics rookie guard Marcus Smart has served his one-game suspension in Sunday's game versus Detroit and should be back in the lineup Monday night.

Rodney Stuckey, G, IND3/23/2015 1:40:00 PM

Description: Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler made is successfully through the morning shootaround and is now expected to play Monday night, according to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune.
Insight: Butler, who has missed the past 11 games, has been a very good performer this season averaging 20.2 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 3.3 apg, 1.7 spg. Make sure he's back in your lineup, though the blossoming of Nikola Mirotic could steal some offensive opportunities from Butler.
Gary Neal, G, MIN3/23/2015 1:31:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard Gary Neal (ankle) will not play Monday night, according to nba.com.
Insight: Neal is averaging 10.0 ppg this season. Backups Zach LaVine and Chase Budinger should see more playing time if Ricky Rubio (ankle) also misses the game.
Isaiah Thomas, G, BOS3/23/2015 1:24:00 PM
Description: Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas (back) will miss Monday's game versus Brooklyn.
Insight: The original timetable was three games, but that has turned into eight games. At least he's still a possibility for Wednesday. He averaged 21.4 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 5.4 apg in his first 10 games with Boston.
Eric Bledsoe, G, PHO3/22/2015 11:46:00 PM

Reggie Jackson, G, DET3/22/2015 9:29:00 PM
Description: Pistons guard Reggie Jackson nearly had a triple-double in the, 105-97, overtime victory over the Celtics on Sunday.
Insight: Jackson didn't shoot well, going 5-for-13 from the field, but he did finish with 17 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds. Last Wednesday, Jackson registered a triple-double even though he shot 4-for-17 from the floor, so this is becoming a habit. If owners need counting stats, Jackson is the man.

Description: Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio will not play against the Hornets on Sunday due to an ankle injury.

DeMar DeRozan, G/F, TOR3/22/2015 6:52:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points in the, 106-89, victory over the Knicks on Sunday.
Insight: DeRozan also had seven rebounds and five assists. We said on Friday that owners don't get much besides scoring with DeRozan, but he has proved he can fill the stat sheet if Kyle Lowry doesn't play. As long as Lowry is out, DeRozan is an elite fantasy option.
Chris Paul, G, LAC3/22/2015 6:41:00 PM
Description: Clippers point guard Chris Paul recorded a double-double in the, 107-100, victory over the Pelicans on Sunday.

Michael Carter-Williams, G, MIL3/22/2015 6:06:00 PM
Description: Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams led the team with 19 points in the loss on Sunday against the Cavaliers.
Insight: Carter-Williams has scored 19 points in back-to-back games but the two games were still polar opposites. On Friday, he shot 26.9 percent with six rebounds and four assists. Sunday, Carter-Williams shot 64.3 percent with five assists, four steals, three rebounds and two blocks. In general, Carter-Williams only produces in games where he shoots a great percentage, and that doesn't happen often because he is shooting 35.3 percent in March.
Alexey Shved, G, NYKHot3/22/2015 5:41:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Alexey Shved suffered a rib contusion on Sunday and will not return against the Raptors.
Insight: Shved will finish Sunday's game with nine points, two rebounds and two assists. Shved should be considered questionable for Monday's game. Shane Larkin will get a lot more playing time, but he doesn't have the fantasy upside that Shved has.
Kyle Lowry, G, TOR3/22/2015 3:10:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (back) will not play Sunday against the Knicks.
Insight: This is tough news after Lowry was able to play on Friday. Greivis Vasquez will start in his place.

Description: Pelicans G/F Tyreke Evans (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's contest. Update: Evans has been downgraded to out.
Insight: Omer Asik is also questionable with a calf injury. Evans left Friday's game with the ankle injury and was unable to return, so he may be on the lower end of the questionable tag. Norris Cole would start in his place, while Alexis Ajinca would start for Asik.
Kyle Korver, G/F, ATL3/22/2015 1:58:00 PM
Description: Hawks shooting guard Kyle Korver (nose) will play Sunday versus San Antonio.
Insight: He missed the past three games with a broken nose, but is ready to get back at it. Kent Bazemore will be sent back to the bench.

Description: Pelicans G/F Tyreke Evans (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's contest.
Insight: Omer Asik is also questionable with a calf injury. Evans left Friday's game with the ankle injury and was unable to return, so he may be on the lower end of the questionable tag. Norris Cole would start in his place, while Alexis Ajinca would start for Asik.

Description: Magic guard Evan Fournier (hip) is likely out another 10 days.
Insight: Elfrid Payton and Victor Oladipo will continue to start at the guard positions. Fournier can be dropped in most leagues, as he will likely be eased back in upon his return.
Jamal Crawford, G, LAC3/22/2015 11:04:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford (calf) may not play again this season.

Description: Rockets guard James Harden had a rough night during Saturday's loss to the Suns.
Insight: He shot just 5-of-19 from the field for 16 points, five dimes, two boards, one 3-pointer, two blocks, and five turnovers. Chalk this one up as just an off-night for arguably the NBA MVP.
Eric Bledsoe, G, PHO3/21/2015 10:54:00 PM
Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe had a huge night during Saturday's victory over the Rockets.
Insight: He shot 11-of-18 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line for 34 points, eight rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers, three steals, one block, and three turnovers. Bledsoe is a borderline top-30 player in standard leagues.

Marcus Smart, G, BOS3/21/2015 3:45:00 PM
Description: Celtics rookie guard Marcus Smart has been suspended for Sunday's game versus Detroit.
Insight: He really deserves a longer suspension, after going after Tiago Splitter with a low-blow. However, Smart will miss just the one game, and still holds some value with Isaiah Thomas stilll sidelined.
Steve Nash, G, LAL3/21/2015 2:59:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Steve Nash (nerve damage) has announced his retirement from basketball.
Insight: It's not a big surprise as he's been struggling with his health for years. The two-time MVP will finish third all-time in assists (10,335), he also scored 17,387 points, averaging 14.3 ppg over his 18-year career with Phoenix, Dallas and the Lakers.
Tony Parker, G, SAN3/20/2015 10:52:00 PM

Insight: Westbrook went 8-for-24 from the field on his way to 36 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds. He was also a perfect 17-for-17 at the line and hit three 3-pointers. It's hard to find a better fantasy player right now, though, James Harden, who scored 50 on Thursday, has an argument.
Kyle Lowry, G, TOR3/20/2015 10:33:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry suited up versus the Bulls on Friday, but he did not play.
Insight: We warned owners that this might happen. Greivis Vasquez started and scored 11 points with six assists, four rebounds and a steal. It would be best to stay away from Lowry until he proves he is healthy.
DeMar DeRozan, G/F, TOR3/20/2015 10:31:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points in the loss to the Bulls on Friday.
Insight: DeRozan doesn't usually do much besides score, but he did hit three 3-pointers, grab seven rebounds and dish out three assists as well. Kyle Lowry, who dressed but did not play, should be back soon though, and DeRozan should go back to just scoring.
Ish Smith, G, PHI3/20/2015 10:13:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Ish Smith led Philadelphia started again on Friday and had 15 points and nine assists in the victory over the Knicks.
Insight: Smith was 7-for-16 from the field, hitting one 3-pointer. He also had four rebounds and two steals. As long as Smith starts in Philadelphia, he is worthy of a look in fantasy.

Description: Knicks guard Alexey Shved hit seven 3-pointers in the loss to the 76ers on Friday.

It's not too late, if you haven't picked up Shved yet, go do it now.

Description: Raptors guard Greivis Vasquez will start in place of the banged up Kyle Lowry on Friday.
Insight: Kyle Lowry is expected to come off the bench, but Vasquez will start. If fantasy owners have other options, it would be wise to stay away from this situation on Friday. It is unknown how much Lowry will play and therefore, how many minutes Vasquez will receive.
Kyle Lowry, G, TOR3/20/2015 7:54:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry will play on Friday against the Bulls, but he will not start as Greivis Vasquez will remain in the starting lineup.

Description: Lakers guard Jeremy Lin played through back and wrist injuries on Thursday and is expected to play again on Sunday versus the Sixers.
Insight: Lin played on Thursday, just not well, shooting 1-of-6 with four assists and two turnovers. His fantasy value is limited these days as the Lakers tend to be balanced on offense.
Eric Gordon, G, NOP3/20/2015 12:25:00 AM
Description: Pelicans shooting guard Eric Gordon led the team with 14 points in the, 74-72, loss to the Suns on Thursday.
Insight: Without Anthony Davis, the Pelicans could generate very little offense. It's too bad Davis couldn't play because not only did fantasy owners miss him but New Orleans fell another half game out of eighth place in the Western Conference. Gordon finished with five assists and two rebounds as well.

Alexey Shved, G, NYK3/19/2015 10:31:00 PM
Description: Knicks guard Alexey Shved had a decent night despite shooting 0-for-7 from the 3-point line versus the Timberwolves.
Insight: If Shved can get one or two of those 3-pointers to go down, he would have had a very nice night and the Knicks likely would have won. Shved owners will settle for 20 points on 7-of-21 shooting with six assists, five rebounds, one block and one steal.
Kevin Martin, G, MIN3/19/2015 10:30:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves shooting guard Kevin Martin led Minnesota with 22 points in the, 95-92, overtime victory over the Knicks on Thursday.

Description: Lakers guard Jeremy Lin played will try to play versus the Jazz on Thursday according to the LA Daily News.

Description: Knicks guard Tim Hardaway Jr. will not play on Thursday against the Timberwolves according to ESPN New York.
Insight: Hardaway was doubtful coming into the game, so this isn't a huge surprise. Alexey Shved and Langston Galloway will continue to be the best fantasy options for the Knicks.
Jamal Crawford, G, LAC3/19/2015 4:35:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Jamal Crawford is not coming back anytime soon according to the Orange County Register.
Insight: Doc Rivers said this and went on to say Crawford is still dealing with a deep calf bruise. Crawford will be out at least 10 more days. Owners in standard leagues can probably cut Crawford for another player.

Description: Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas (back) will miss at least the next three games, according to head coach Brad Stevens.
