March 16, 2019, 3:22 pmAl Horford - F/C - Boston Celtics
Al Horford spent most of the second half in the locker room due to knee problems on Saturday, and Brad Stevens said after the game that the Celtics already have "three or four games" of planned rest for Horford down the stretch.
The Celtics have 12 games left, so that's anywhere from a quarter to a third of Horford's remaining schedule. It means fantasy owners can't expect a full slate from the top-50 big man the rest of the way, which is going to be a major headache as fantasy championships are starting to be decided. Horford finished with nine points, six rebounds, three assists and a block in 28 minutes today, and Aron Baynes, Daniel Theis and Robert Williams will all see more minutes whenever Horford sits. He missed time earlier in the year with knee issues but had been fairly pain-free until today. After the game, Horford said that he simply banged his knee today and that his departure had nothing to do with those earlier injuries.

March 24, 2019, 4:26 pmKevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors
Kevon Looney (right forearm contusion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Pistons.
If Looney is active, he could see some extended run with DeMarcus Cousins and Andre Iguodala both resting. Though, even with a few extra minutes, he's not much of a fantasy asset.

March 24, 2019, 4:21 pmKyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors
Kyle Lowry (right ankle soreness) will be active for Sunday's game against the Hornets.
This is a big help for Lowry owners that could need a boost on Sunday. He was not expected to return until "sometime next week" as coach Nick Nurse put it. We'll see if he's able to play a full compliment of minutes, but he will cut into Fred VanVleet's production no matter what.

March 24, 2019, 4:18 pmLou Williams - G - Los Angeles Clippers
Lou Williams dropped 29 points, seven dimes, three rebounds, two steals and five 3-pointers in the Clippers' 124-113 win against the Knicks on Sunday.
Lou Will continued his reign as the greatest sixth-man of all time in this one. It's truly amazing what he can do off-the-bench and the value the Clippers have him on. He's sustained mid-round value once again this season and should keep it going through the rest of the season.
March 24, 2019, 4:13 pmMontrezl Harrell - F/C - Los Angeles Clippers
Montrezl Harrell tallied 24 points, four boards, one assist and one block on 8-of-12 on field goals and 8-of-9 on free throws in Sunday's win against the Knicks.
Harrell is continuing his breakout season and is likely the sixth-man of the year in most years, but he still isn't the best sixth-man on his own team. He won't be this efficient every game, but his numbers from both the floor and free throw line made this game even better for him.
March 24, 2019, 4:10 pmPatrick Beverley - G - Los Angeles Clippers
Patrick Beverly scored 12 points on 4-for-6 shooting from deep while missing his only 2-pointer to go along with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Sunday's win against the Knicks.
Fellow point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a nice game dropping 10 points and eight assists while tallying a steal and block of his own. The duo have been a great story in real life and in fantasy. Both are just inside the top-145 for the season and top-85 over the last two weeks – SGA is at a nice 69 over the past two weeks. Continue riding the Clippers point guards through the end of the season.
March 24, 2019, 4:02 pmDanilo Gallinari - F - Los Angeles Clippers
Danilo Gallinari scored 26 points on only 5-for-16 from the field, but 13-for-14 from the free throw line in Sunday's win against the Knicks.
Gallo also tallied eight boards, an assist and three 3-pointers. He's continued to be one of the best values in fantasy this season thanks to his production, but most importantly his relatively clean bill of health.
March 24, 2019, 3:55 pmDarren Collison - G - Indiana Pacers
Darren Collison (right quad contusion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.
Cory Joseph has been filling in for Collison in the starting lineup, but it's been Tyreke Evans who has been producing. He's got 19.5 points, 6.5 boards and 4.5 assists per game over the last two contests. Evans is worth a flier if you're desperate on the last day of the week.

March 24, 2019, 3:53 pmHarry Giles III - F/C - Sacramento Kings
Harry Giles III (left thigh contusion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lakers, and is day-to-day going forward.
Giles is not much of a fantasy option anyways with Marvin Bagley back. Bagley and Nemanja Bjelica will pick up the extra few minutes.

March 24, 2019, 3:47 pmKris Dunn - G - Chicago Bulls
Kris Dunn (sore back) did not practice on Sunday.
Dunn played just 21 minutes on Saturday, and after putting up just four points, three boards and five assists on 1-for-8 shooting, he probably should have just sat this one out. It's good to see that he was able to play, but the Bulls won't push him if he doesn't fully recover. Shaq Harrison is the main beneficiary if Dunn misses time.

March 24, 2019, 3:43 pmZach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls
Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) did not practice on Sunday.
LaVine was questionable before being ruled out for Sunday's game. We don't think he'll be shut down for the season, but the Bulls certainly won't rush him back by any means. Antonio Blakeney, Shaq Harrison and Wayne Selden will all see boosted minutes, but Harrison is the one you want in fantasy.
