March 4, 2019, 1:39 pmJonah Bolden - F - Philadelphia Sixers
Jonah Bolden (illness) did not practice on Monday.
Bolden has really come out of nowhere and is a top-60 guy over the past week. However, Joel Embiid seems to be on his way back which means Bolden will likely go back to sitting on the waiver wire in most leagues. Bolden's status for Tuesday's game vs. the Magic should be considered questionable but also keep an eye out for Embiid's.

March 26, 2019, 9:49 amSalah Mejri - C - Dallas Mavericks
Salad Mejri is no longer listed on the injury report for tonight’s game against the Kings.
Mejri missed the previous game with an illness but it looks like he will be available on Tuesday. He is only a deep league option and with Maxi Kleber and Dwight Powell available he shouldn’t see any action.

March 26, 2019, 9:33 amTony Snell - G - Milwaukee Bucks
The official NBA injury report is listing Tony Snell as out for tonight’s game against the Rockets.
Snell suffered the injury on Sunday and never returned to the game. We haven’t heard anything about the severity of his injury but being ruled out of tonight’s game since yesterday doesn’t bond well for his status going forward. George Hill, Pat Connaughton or Sterling Brown will likely replace him in the starting lineup while Ersan Ilyasova and DJ Wilson could also see some extra minutes with the Bucks currently missing Malcolm Brogdon, Nikola Mirotic and Pau Gasol as well.

March 26, 2019, 9:17 amSergio Llull - G - Houston Rockets
The agent for Sergio Llull said that the Spanish guard has not completely ruled out the possibility of joining the Rockets.
Houston has been trying to convince Lull to sign in the NBA since he was drafted back in 2009. The Spanish guard has been the leader of Real Madrid for many years where he earns less money than what Houston could offer him but his contract doesn’t expire until 2021 and he is already 32 years old.

March 26, 2019, 8:58 amJusuf Nurkic - C - Trail Blazers
The Blazers announced that Jusuf Nurkic suffered a compound fracture to his left leg and will require surgery, costing him the remainder of the season.
The report confirms what we all thought happened after the devastating fall Nurk took at the end of the 2OT last night. Paul George had an identical injury back in 2005 but he was able to come back stronger than ever after eight months, so Nurkic is likely looking at a similar timetable. It remains to be seen whether Terry Stotts will insert Enes Kanter or Zach Collins to the starting lineup but both guys deserve consideration in standard leagues with the Blazers having three more games this week. Our hopes and prayers are with Nurkic for now while it was great to see the entire NBA community offer words of support to him last night.

March 26, 2019, 1:15 amJusuf Nurkic - C - Trail Blazers
Jusuf Nurkic turned out one of his best games of the season on Monday with 32 points on 13-of-24 shooting while adding 16 rebounds, five assists, two steals and four blocks before exiting Monday's 148-144 2OT win over the Nets with a leg injury.
He was having an excellent night until he was forced to exit the game in 2OT with a leg injury which looked gruesome and had to be helped off the court on a stretcher. The Blazers looked out of it until the fourth quarter when the team as a whole finally started to turn it on, but Nurkic was the one who carried them throughout the first three quarters, but now it's looking like the Blazers and fantasy owners are going to have to find a replacement for Nurk.
March 26, 2019, 1:15 amDamian Lillard - G - Trail Blazers
Damian Lillard scored 31 points on 10-of-30 shooting while adding six rebounds, 12 dimes, a steal and four 3-pointers on Monday.
Lillard had a bit of a slow game heading into the fourth quarter, but he dropped 11 points in the final period to help force the game into OT. The Blazers are going to continue to lean on him heavily as they'll be without C.J. McCollum (left knee strain) for at least another week.
March 26, 2019, 1:14 amSeth Curry - G - Trail Blazers
Seth Curry logged 40 minutes on Monday and scored 20 points on 6-of-13 shooting with two rebounds, an assist, two steals and three 3-pointers.
Curry came up big for the Blazers, who are in need of someone to fill in the shoes of C.J. McCollum (strained left knee) who is going to miss the Blazers' next three games at a minimum. He's a solid option for owners in need of some triples along with Rodney Hood (18 points on 8-of-16 shooting with two rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer).
March 26, 2019, 1:13 amEnes Kanter - C - Trail Blazers
Enes Kanter double-doubled on Monday with 12 points and 10 rebounds to go with three assists and two triples.
After a horrible stretch of games, Kanter has put together some solid lines and even tied his career-high in 3-pointers. He went 4-for-8 from the floor and hit both of his free throws. With Jusuf Nurkic (left leg) looking like he'll miss the rest of the season, Kanter makes sense as the next man up for the Blazers.
March 26, 2019, 1:12 amD'Angelo Russell - G - Brooklyn Nets
D'Angelo Russell led the Nets on Monday with 39 points on 16-of-34 shooting while adding nine rebounds, eight dimes, a steal and three 3-pointers.
Russell hit tough shots all night, but struggled a bit from deep, going 3-for-14 from beyond the arc. He's firmly planted himself ahead of everyone else on the Nets roster and it looks like his breakout year is going to end on a high note.
March 26, 2019, 1:12 amJarrett Allen - C - Brooklyn Nets
Jarrett Allen scored 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting while adding eight rebounds and two assists on Monday.
Allen had a tough time going up against Jusuf Nurkic and it showed on the box score. When he wasn't being bullied down low, Damian Lillard was constantly attacking him in the paint which led to him fouling out in overtime. Considering his struggles tonight, the fantasy line was still solid.
