• Kevin Durant
    F, Golden State Warriors

    Kevin Durant scored 34 points on 12-of-22 shooting while adding seven rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in Monday's Game 4.

    Durant put on another scoring clinic tonight, dropping buckets over any form of Rockets defense they threw at him. Houston feels most comfortable with P.J. Tucker on Durant, but even with their best defensive assignment, he was cooking. He had a clean look for a 3-pointer to tie the game at the end of regulation, but missed which was uncharacteristic of him. There's no slowing him down as he's playing out of his mind currently.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo will no longer be subject to a minutes restriction, but still he will not play back-to-back contests.

    Nate McMillan announced the change to reporters on Wednesday. Oladipo has averaged 11.1 points and 2.9 assists in 25.0 minutes per game so far. Just be prepared for the days of rest when the Pacers have a heavy schedule.

  • Al Horford
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Al Horford told the media that he expects to continue coming off the bench going forward.

    Even off the bench, Horford has been playing close to 30 minutes per night of late. Nevertheless, it's an indication that Josh Richardson should maintain his place in the starting lineup for the Sixers. Horford can contribute in a variety of categories, but he has scored only 9.3 points per game over his last ten appearances.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) will be out for "weeks" according to Hawks head coach Lloyd Pierce.

    The Hawks have little incentive to rush Capela and Dewayne Dedmon should see steady minutes while he is sidelined. Still, this is a longer absence than most observers would have expected. Capela is a double-double machine when healthy, but hopefully your league has an injured reserve spot if you own him.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard (bilateral knee soreness) will not play on Thursday.

    Kennard's timetable is still unclear, but Reggie Jackson's buyout should give him added value when he rejoins the Pistons. Kennard has enjoyed his finest season to date in compiling 15.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game.

  • DeAndre' Bembry
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    DeAndre’ Bembry (hand) will be available for Thursday's game.

    Bembry had minor surgery for his right hand neuritis in late January. This will be his first game back since January 20. Cam Reddish could see a dip in minutes.

  • Clint Capela
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Clint Capela (right heel contusion) will not be available for Thursday's game against the Heat.

    Capela hasn't yet made his debut for the Hawks. He averaged 13.9 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game before the Rockets traded him away. Dewayne Dedmon should continue to start in his absence.

  • Jacob Evans
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The Wolves announced this morning that the team has assigned Jacob Evans, Omari Spellman and Jarred Vanderbilt to the Iowa Wolves, the team’s NBA G League affiliate.

    All of them were acquired at the trade deadline and they are unlikely to receive much playing time with the main squad.

  • Kris Dunn
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls announced this morning that Kris Dunn will continue his current rehabilitation program of his medial collateral ligament sprain for the next 4-6 weeks before progressing to functional training.

    A determination will be made at that time if additional treatment is required so it’s not certain that Dunn will be able to return to action this year. He is now a drop in standard leagues and the Bulls will rely on Tomas Satoransky and Coby White for the foreseeable future.

  • Aaron Gordon
    PF, Orlando Magic

    The Magic tried mightily to trade forward Aaron Gordon before last week's deadline, according to veteran NBA reporter Sean Deveney.

    The Warriors and the Suns were among the teams that spoke to the Magic but talks obviously didn’t materialize. Orlando is waiting for first-round pick Chuma Okeke as he recovers from ACL surgery, and his recovery could potentially spell the end of Gordon with the Magic. AG has taken a step back this year, sitting outside the top-150 in standard leagues but hopefully the All-Star break helps him get back on track.

  • Nicolas Claxton
    PF, Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets assigned Nicolas Claxton to their G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, on Wednesday.

    With DeAndre Jordan and Jarrett Allen healthy it’s gonna be hard for the rookie center to find any minutes. He is only a stash in dynasty leagues right now.
