March 12, 2019, 5:05 pmTJ WarrenF, Phoenix Suns
T.J. Warren (right ankle bone bruise) will not play on Wednesday against the Jazz but Igor Kokoskov said that the team has not discussed shutting Warren down for the rest of the season.
Warren has missed the last 19 games and the Suns will have 13 games left after tomorrow, so any way you slice it it's unlikely that Warren does anything impactful for fantasy owners. He still hasn't returned to practice, and accounting for the ramp up there and any minutes restrictions he'll have upon returning, he may not be up to full speed before most fantasy leagues end entirely. Warren is a weak hold unless you have an IR spot and no other injury troubles at the moment.

Neil Olshey, the former Clippers executive who has had a solid run with the Blazers for the past seven seasons might be an option if current Knicks President Steve Mills is bounced after the season.
Olshey, who lived in New York City as an aspiring actor, rose up the ranks with the Clippers, starting as a player personnel director in 2003 and finishing in 2010 as the GM who engineered the Chris Paul trade with New Orleans. He joined the Blazers in 2012, where the team has made the playoffs in six straight years with insiders commending Olshey for his leadership, his faith in coach Terry Stotts and his well-liked personality in executive circles.

The Wizards are expecting to receive calls on Davis Bertans, but opposing teams will have a hard time convincing them to make a deal, according to Chris Crouse of HoopsRumors.
Bertans is averaging a career-high 15.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 4.0 triples so far this season. Many within the team’s front office are huge fans of Bertans and with the franchise looking to improve sooner than later, the Wizards could opt to keep the 27-year-old power forward with the intention of re-signing him this offseason and having him available for a more competitive campaign next year. The Latvian forward is in the middle of a breakout year and owners should enjoy the ride.

The official injury report is listing JaMychal Green as doubtful to face the Raptors on Wednesday.
A tailbone contusion has limited Green recently as he sat out a couple games before returning on Sunday against the Wizards but only lasting four minutes. Patrick Patterson is likely to get the spot start while Moe Harkless remains the biggest beneficiary in his absence.
