• Kelly Olynyk - F - Miami Heat

    Kelly Olynyk led the Heat in scoring on Thursday with 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting while chipping in five rebounds, two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers.

    Olynyk's flexibility was on display tonight against a Rockets team that usually forces teams to alter their rotations due to their playstyle. Now that the rotation is "tightened up" Olynyk has been consistently producing standard-league value and should be owned in all leagues.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    An MRI on DeMarcus Cousins' sore right foot came back clean and he will be listed as day-to-day going forward.

    Cousins is officially out on Monday and expected to be out on Tuesday as well. His next chance to play will come on Thursday, and then the Warriors close the week against the Mavs and Pistons on Saturday and Sunday. Boogie has yet to play in both legs of a back-to-back this season, so it might be tough for fantasy owners to plug him into lineups with weekly locks despite his excellent play of late. Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell will see more minutes for the duration of Cousins' absence.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry (left ankle sprain) is now probable for Monday's matchup with the Knicks.

    Lowry was listed as questionable this morning after being downgraded to doubtful before the last two games, so he's clearly trending in the right direction. If he does play tonight, it'll give Nick Nurse his first crack at allocating minutes between Lowry, Fred VanVleet and Jeremy Lin. With no Kawhi Leonard (load management) tonight, Lowry's a great fantasy option if he plays.

  • DeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors

    Anthony Slater of The Athletic is reporting that the Warriors plan to sit DeMarcus Cousins (sore right foot) on Tuesday against the Wolves.

    Cousins had already been ruled out for Monday's game as he heads for an MRI on his foot, and he's already looking at a three-game week if Slater's report is correct. With Golden Sate having a back-to-back on the weekend, it's possible that Cousins suits up just twice, if that, this week. Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell will take on more work up front but are only streaming options in fantasy.

  • Kelly Oubre Jr. - F - Phoenix Suns

    Kelly Oubre (left thumb sprain) will not play on Monday against the Bulls.

    It's a tough break for fantasy owners as Oubre has been excellent over the last couple of months. All the Suns should get more usage tonight, with Oubre averaging 16.2 shots per game in March. Josh Jackson is the most likely player to start, though Mikal Bridges could also draw the nod without much surprise. They're the top two targets here, with Bridges preferred unless you simply need popcorn numbers.

  • Tyler Johnson - G - Phoenix Suns

    Tyler Johnson (sore right knee) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Bulls.

    Johnson will miss his third consecutive game. De'Anthony Melton should start again and is a nice option for steals, while Josh Jackson and Troy Daniels should also see more minutes as the wing rotation gets shuffled around a bit. Johnson is a late-round player when healthy, so if you have to move on for another option you can go ahead and make that transaction.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee soreness) is doubtful for Tuesday against the Sixers.

    Zeller will miss his fourth consecutive game and is a drop candidate if you need immediate production. He's been a solid late-round player when healthy, but fantasy owners can't afford to sit and wait at this point in the season. Bismack Biyombo will likely draw another start, with Frank Kaminsky playing the most up front. We'd like to see Willy Hernangomez get some playing time after two straight DNPs but we're also not holding our breath there.

  • Thabo Sefolosha - F - Utah Jazz

    Thabo Sefolosha (right hamstring soreness) is now questionable for Monday's game after initially being listed as out.

    Sefolosha gives the Jazz a quality defender as a bench option but he doesn't do much for fantasy owners. His return would likely siphon a couple minutes away from Royce O'Neale and Georges Niang, but not enough to capture your attention.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Monday's game against the Knicks.

    It'd be surprising to see Lowry suit up tonight but this is an upgrade in his condition after he was downgraded to doubtful ahead of Toronto's last two games. If he can't play then Fred VanVleet becomes a nice fantasy play, but we'll let you know if Lowry ends his current absence at two games. Perhaps he'll feel compelled to get on the court with the Raptors already shorthanded because of Kawhi Leonard's load management and Serge Ibaka's suspension.

  • Noah Vonleh - F - New York Knicks

    Noah Vonleh (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's matchup with the Raptors.

    Vonleh will miss his second straight game, and the legend of Mario Hezonja will have another chance to grow in a likely start. Super Mario is worth a flier on the chances that he builds off Sunday's big game, but he's not exactly someone we'd feel comfortable with this late into the year.

  • Dennis Smith Jr. - G - New York Knicks

    Dennis Smith Jr. (sore lower back) will not play against the Raptors on Monday.

    Smith will miss his third straight game, and Emmanuel Mudiay looks like a solid add if you need points and assists at the expense of efficiency right now. Kadeem Allen is on the deep-league radar as the backup point guard, too.
