June 4, 2018, 1:08 pmDanny GreenG/F, San Antonio Spurs
Danny Green received a PRP injection in his left groin and says he's working on rehabbing and strength.
Green missed 10 games with left groin problems last season, and the injection is designed to promote the healing of muscle tears. This shouldn't affect his availability at all next season and may even help him recover faster. He has a $10 million player option for next season but will wait on a final decision. Green will hear back from his agent first and the Spurs are consumed with the draft at the moment so there's no need for him to rush to a decision. Despite Green's downswing over the last three seasons, teams might be willing to pay more than $10 million for a strong wing defender who can still competently knock down threes. It'll be a busy summer for the Spurs either way.

February 23, 2020, 7:08 pmJayson TatumSF, Boston Celtics
Jayson Tatum went off for 41 points (12-of-20 FG, 4-of-7 3PT), five rebounds and two blocks in Sunday's 114-112 loss to the Lakers.
Tatum was dynamite in this one, having his way on offense for the first three quarters. The Lakers were able to slow him down by employing a double-team on him in the fourth quarter and the Celtics were not able to pull it out at the end. This season has been Tatum's fantasy coming out party as he ranks inside the top-15 across the board. If you have him on your roster, let him keep carrying you into the fantasy playoffs.
February 23, 2020, 7:02 pmMarquese ChrissPF, Golden State Warriors
Marquese Chriss's (left calf) status has been downgraded to out for Sunday's clash with the Pelicans.
Kevon Looney, Juan Toscano-Anderson and the freshly signed Dragan Bender will see more action with Chriss out. As long as he doesn't miss an extended period of time, Chriss has shown no signs of slowing down after inking a new contract with the Warriors. Over the last two months he sits firmly inside the top-100 and there is no shortage of playing time for the Warriors this season.

February 23, 2020, 6:52 pmGordon HaywardSF, Boston Celtics
Gordon Hayward led the Celtics in minutes on Sunday and, despite a poor shooting day, almost notched a triple-double with 10 points on 5-of-15 shooting (0-for-5 3PT), eight rebounds and nine assists.
Hayward did not have a very good game and didn't add any defensive stats, which is not the least bit surprising. He is averaging 0.7 blocks and 0.4 steals per game this year but despite offering nothing in those respects, he maintains top-50 value in the Celtics vibrant offense.
February 23, 2020, 6:46 pmJaylen BrownSG, Boston Celtics
Jaylen Brown totaled 20 points, six rebounds and three steals in a loss on Sunday against the Lakers at Staples Center.
Brown was second on the team to Gordon Hayward in terms of minutes on Sunday but today was Jayson Tatum's day. Brown knocked down three of his nine threes. Brown and Hayward should continue their roles as primary supporters to Tatum as the season winds down.
February 23, 2020, 6:40 pmMarcus SmartPG, Boston Celtics
Marcus Smart had 14 points, seven rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes of action in Sunday's road loss to the Lakers
Kemba Walker was out on Sunday so Smart got a little more run. Jayson Tatum had a monster game and most of the Celtics' offense ran through him. Defensive stats are a big part of what makes Smart a fantasy asset, and he added two steals in Sunday's game.
February 23, 2020, 6:35 pmDaniel TheisPF, Boston Celtics
Daniel Theis had 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting and added nine rebounds before fouling out late in the game Sunday against the Lakers.
Theis has clearly usurped Enes Kanter for minutes in coach Brad Stevens' offense, as evidenced by his spot in the starting lineup. Theis got 31 minutes in Sunday's game and should continue to provide top-75 value the rest of the season.
February 23, 2020, 5:57 pmJalen BrunsonPG, Dallas Mavericks
Jalen Brunson (right shoulder) is being listed as out for Monday's contest against the Wolves.
Luka Doncic is expected to return from a one-game absence on Monday, so Brunson would not have gotten much run anyway. Delon Wright might receive a small bump in minutes Monday with Brunson out.

Willie Cauley-Stein (personal) is being listed as questionable ahead of the Mavs' game on Monday vs. the Wolves.
Cauley-Stein's fantasy value has been nonexistent since being moved to the Mavericks prior to the trade deadline. He missed Saturday's game but Kristaps Porzingis has been very good and even Maxi Kleber is ahead of Cauley-Stein on Dallas' pecking order down low.

Luka Doncic (right ankle) has been deemed probable for the Mavs' game on Monday against the Wolves.
Coach Rick Carlisle said Sunday that he expects Luka's ankle soreness to be a short-term thing. Backup guards Delon Wright and J.J. Barea are the most impacted by Doncic's return to action, assuming he does indeed suit up on Monday
