• Kevin Love - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love needed only 26 minutes to power the Cavs to a win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, recording 32 points on 9-of-15 shooting with 12 rebounds, six triples, one steal and one block.

    Better late than never. That's the apt description for the now-healthy Love's late-season surge. He's missed a ton of time but from the looks of things, is healthy enough to pop for big lines like this one. That said, he still comes with a shut-down risk since the Cavs have nothing to play for.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry (right ankle soreness) is questionable to play against the Hornets on Sunday.

    Although Lowry is officially listed as questionable, we are not expecting him to play as Nick Nurse said on Friday that Lowry should be back "sometime next week." Fred VanVleet should continue starting and is a great option standard leagues as he is averaging 15.3 points, 6.8 assists and 2.3 triples with good percentages over his last four game since coming back from injury.

  • Mike Conley - G - Memphis Grizzlies

    Mike Conley is not listed on the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Wolves.

    Conley sat out Friday's game from general soreness but is expected to be back in the lineup. He has put up second round value all season but has been especially hot over the last six games with 29.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 8.3 assists and 3.3 triples.

  • Joakim Noah - C - Memphis Grizzlies

    Joakim Noah (knee) is probable to face the Wolves on Saturday.

    Noah sat out on Friday on the front-end of a back-to-back and should be good to go on Saturday. He has put up low-end value this season and is averaging 11.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in the last four games. He doesn't provide much in other categories and with the rest of sitting out more games, you can probably find better options in fantasy. The Grizzlies have another back-to-back set next Saturday and Sunday.

  • Trevor Ariza - F - Washington Wizards

    Trevor Ariza (strained left groin) was not a participant in morning shootaround on Saturday.

    The Wizards take on the Heat on Saturday so it is highly doubtful that Ariza suits up and there is a decent chance he gets shut down for the season. Troy Brown Jr. picked up the start last game and put up 13 points, five rebounds, three assists and no other stats in 33 minutes. He could be given ample run to close the season but hasn't shown enough to be considered outside of very deep leagues for now.

  • Malcolm Miller - F - Toronto Raptors

    The Raptors have sent Malcom MIller to the G-League on Saturday.

    Miller will play for the Raptors 905's final regular season game. He is averaging 10.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.6 triples in the G-League this season but has only appeared in six games for the Raptors, playing very limited minutes.

  • Justin Bibbs - G - Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have signed Justin Bibbs to a second 10-day contract.

    Bibbs spent most of the first 10-day deal in the G-League and is yet to make his Clippers debut. The undrafted rookie out of Virginia Tech has G-League averages of 11.6 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.7 triples in 29.7 minutes.

  • Tyson Chandler - C - Los Angeles Lakers

    Tyson Chandler has no plans to retire anytime soon.

    Chandler on his future in the league says, "I feel like I got a lot left.” He is 36 years old and averaged 3.1 points and 5.6 rebounds in 15.9 minutes across 54 games this year. He will be an unrestricted free agent after this season and the 2012 Defensive Player of the Year will hope to sign the veteran's minimum deal somewhere but no longer has value in fantasy circles.

  • LeBron James - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    LeBron James (sore left groin) returned from a one-game absence on Friday night and put up 25 points, nine rebounds, 14 assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in a 106-111 loss to the Nets that eliminated the Lakers from playoff contention.

    James went 8-of-25 from the field and 8-of-12 at the line while committing eight turnovers, but the real insult-to-injury part of the night came in the final minute when LeBron slipped out of bounds while driving the baseline. He came up limping after the play, so maybe it's more of an injury-to-injury situation. James returned to the game for a final offensive possession but was subbed out when the Lakers had to defend. With the Lakers' season over, we can expect more nights off going forward, especially after James appeared to get hurt again tonight.

  • JaVale McGee - C - Los Angeles Lakers

    JaVale McGee set a new career-high in points on Friday night, going 15-of-20 from the field for 33 points to go with 20 rebounds, a steal and six blocks in 35 minutes against the Nets.

    McGee went 3-of-7 from the charity stripe to put a single blemish on a fantastic performance. This game surely swung some weekly matchups out there, and despite L.A.'s spot in the standings they don't appear ready to dial back on McGee's minutes just yet. Tyson Chandler played 13 minutes while Mo Wagner and Johnathan Williams didn't take the floor. Just hope that it keeps up so McGee can put up big numbers as the Lakers play out the string.

  • Kyle Kuzma - F - Los Angeles Lakers

    Kyle Kuzma scored 18 points with five rebounds, a block and three triples on Friday night, though he shot 5-of-19 to get there.

    Kuzma's stat set is just not good enough for him to really help you out when the shot isn't falling. Points, threes and rebounds will be there — as will some assists if LeBron James sits out — but everything else will be lacking. Deploy as needed.
