March 7, 2019, 12:37 amMarcus Smart - G - Boston Celtics
Marcus Smart played well in a win over the Kings on Wednesday, with nine points, five assists and five steals in 31 minutes of action.
Smart has shot the ball well in the second half of the season and his top-100 value is the highest of his career. He is a great source of assists, threes, and steals. Although the numbers do not always show up on the stat sheet, the Celtics need Smart to win basketball games as he is a crucial element of their team.

Pau Gasol (left ankle soreness) is expected to miss a month of action.
He's not fantasy relevant in any way at this point of the season so this update shouldn't shake up most fantasy teams.

Kris Dunn (back) will start in Saturday's matchup against the Jazz.
It's great to see that the back issue he suffered isn't serious enough for him to sit this one out. Expect a lot of touches coming his way especially since Zach LaVine (thigh) and Otto Porter (shoulder) will be out for tonight.

Salah Mejri (illness) will not play on Saturday against the Warriors.
Mejri has been a decent bet for per-minute blocks lately but fantasy owners will need to look for alternatives tonight. Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber should split the center minutes against Golden State.

March 23, 2019, 7:09 pmZach LaVine - G - Chicago Bulls
Zach LaVine (right thigh contusion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Jazz.
LaVine was questionable coming into today and went through a pregame warmup but isn't 100 percent, and with the Bulls having nothing to play for it makes sense to sit him down. So far the team seems to value its competitive spirit as part of their effort to build culture, so we wouldn't anticipate a full-on shutdown for LaVine unless his latest injury heals slowly. Antonio Blakeney might start again but Shaq Harrison is the guy that most fantasy owners will look at given his steals production.

Robert Williams went back into the locker room after falling on a putback dunk attempt in Saturday's game against the Hornets.
It could be a number of things — back, hip, or even a concussion evaluation after Williams took a nasty spill. He was making his first career start tonight and hopefully he'll be okay moving forward.
