• Tom Thibodeau
    Team, Minnesota Timberwolves

    The T-Wolves are trying to obtain another pick in the draft, specifically a first rounder, according to Darren Wolfson of KSTP.

    This draft is loaded so even a high second round pick is appealing to many teams. There are no specifics on a deal yet, but the T-Wolves are definitely looking to add another young player to their roster by adding another draft pick. They do not have a lot of cap room, so adding these low money rookie deals would be perfect for their financial stability and future as an organization.

Fantasy News

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (back) will sit out Sunday's road contest vs. the Raptors.

    Coach Nate McMillan was not very optimistic about Dipo's chances of suiting up for the Pacers' game Sunday after he missed practice, so this is not a surprising development. He had been upgraded to questionable prior to being ruled out, however, so it sounds like he won't be on the shelf for too long. Oladipo's return to the court has gone anything but smooth so far. Jeremy Lamb will likely receive the start in his place and Malcolm Brogdon will run the offense with Oladipo out of the lineup.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw (illness) is still very unlikely to suit up for Sunday's home game against the Pacers, according to head coach Nick Nurse.

    He is still dealing with an illness. McCaw simply has not been productive enough to warrant fantasy consideration this season. Whether or not he's out there on Sunday has very little fantasy impact.

  • Anthony Davis
    PF-C, Los Angeles Lakers

    Anthony Davis (calf) is in the starting lineup for Sunday afternoon's game at home against the Celtics.

    Davis left Friday's game for a short time, but he came back and finished off a great game with 28 PTS, 13 REB and seven blocks. Leave him in your lineups.

  • Jimmy Butler
    SG, Miami Heat

    Jimmy Butler (personal) is not traveling with the Heat for their game against the Cavs on Monday due to personal reasons.

    It still isn't clear why Butler is out, but fortunately for fantasy managers this is only a one game road trip for the Heat. They come home to face the Wolves on Wednesday so for now he has a good shot at suiting up for that contest. Derrick Jones Jr. will likely pick up another start in Butler's stead, and look for Duncan Robinson and Jae Crowder to receive an uptick in offensive opportunities.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (back) will not play vs. the Hawks on Monday and will continue to undergo testing in Philadelphia.

    Simmons had an MRI on Saturday night and it seems as though things weren't as good as the 76ers would've hoped. Stay tuned for updates regarding the situation but Alex Burks, Furkan Korkmaz, Raul Neto and or course, Joel Embiid, have the most to gain from this.

  • Jaren Jackson Jr.
    PF, Memphis Grizzlies

    Jaren Jackson Jr. (sprained knee) will be re-evaluated in two weeks after getting injured in Friday's game.

    With JJJ gone, it's basically Brandon Clarke season and if he's somehow available in your league go get him now. On Wednesday Clarke came off of the bench and put up 28 points, six rebounds, two steals and a block on 12-of-14 shooting and there's much more of that on the way.

  • Dragan Bender
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Dragan Bender is available to make his Warriors debut on Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

    Bender officially signed with the Warriors and he's looking to suit up tonight against the Pelicans. He's still not worth owning anywhere and this whole Warriors team is a dumpster-fire this year.

  • Markelle Fultz
    PG, Orlando Magic

    Markelle Fultz (cramp in left calf) has been fully cleared for Monday's game vs. the Nets.

    Fultz dropped one of his best games of the season on the Nets back in early January when he had 25 points. He's been a top-110 guy over the past month and is well worth owning everywhere.

  • Elfrid Payton
    PG, New York Knicks

    Elfrid Payton (sore right ankle) is being listed as questionable vs. the Rockets on Monday.

    This ankle has been bothering him for the past couple of games and it caused him to completely miss Friday's matchup vs. the Pacers. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina (sore groin) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Payton was dealing with a sore right ankle which caused him to miss practice on Saturday and now his groin is also bothering him. Stay tuned for updates closer to tip-off but if he does suit up he'll be worth playing seeing as he's been an upper mid-round guy as of late.
