• Sean Kilpatrick scored 17 points on 7-of-20 shooting (1-of-8 3PTs) with four rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Knicks.

    Kilpatrick isn’t bashful and he usually isn’t this productive in the non-scoring stats, either.  That’s a long way of saying he’s not good in standard leagues.  Markel Brown scored 16 points with four rebounds, two steals and a three in 29 minutes, but you’re not trusting that either.

  • 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.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    After a full month of increasingly intense individual workouts, Stephen Curry joined on Tuesday his Warriors teammates on the practice court for the first time since last October.

    If all goes well next week, it’s conceivable Curry would immediately begin scrimmaging, with a possible return a few days later. The Warriors have 27 games remaining and after March 1st that number drops to 21. Their final 20 begin with a four-game homestand from March 5th to March 12th and, assuming there are no setbacks, it’s likely that Curry will return during that stretch. Make sure that he is not available in any leagues as he could be the difference-maker during this year’s fantasy playoffs.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Greg Swartz of BleacherReport is reporting that Andre Drummond’s stay in Cleveland could be short, as, according to a former NBA general manager, the Cavs could move their new center this summer.

    Cleveland put together one of the most bizarre trade deadlines in recent memory by trading for Drummond and holding on to Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson. Drummond somewhat fits agewise with the Cavs’ young core of Collin Sexton, Darius Garland and Kevin Porter Jr., but his contract status is still up in the air as he has a $28.8 million player option for the 2020-21 season. Drummond seems to be a safe play on fantasy for the rest of the year, even after the expected coaching change, but his status beyond that seems to be up in the air.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Villanova coach Jay Wright has no interest in the Knicks, as reported on Monday, but Tom Thibodeau very much would like to coach at the Garden, according to Marc Berman of the NY Post.

    Thibodeau’s reputation took a hit after he was fired last season during his third year in Minnesota, even after he took the Wolves to the playoffs for the first time in 13 years. He reportedly did not connect with the young players, practicing them too hard and being too vocal on the bench. Thibs has ties with the Knicks, as he was a former assistant, and it’s likely that he gets an interview in the upcoming months but it remains to be seen what kind of roster the Knicks try to assemble for next year.

  • Jeremy Pargo
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Guards Jeremy Pargo and Zach Norvell Jr. will not re-sign with the Warriors after their 10-day contracts ended on Tuesday.

    “I know we have a list of players we’d like to take a look at,” Steve Kerr said. It seems that the Warriors will take the time to evaluate more guys in the upcoming weeks making it hard to count on any players they bring in. In three games with the Warriors, Norvell averaged just 3.3 points on 27.3 percent shooting. Pargo meanwhile had a nice showing with the team and it’s not out of question that another franchise takes a look at him.

  • Maurice Harkless
    SF, New York Knicks

    During an appearance on ESPN, Sam Amick of The Athletic said on Tuesday that the Lakers are monitoring Maurice Harkless' situation in the event that the Knicks part with him.

    The Lakers missed out on Reggie Jackson but they are still looking to add more firepower ahead of the playoffs. Harkless could give them more defensive versatility but it remains unclear whether New York is willing to let him walk. Regardless, it’s unlikely he has much fantasy value even if he lands with the Lakers.

  • John Beilein
    , Cleveland Cavaliers

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, John Beilein is leaving as the Cavs’ coach and J.B. Bickerstaff will be elevated to head coach.

    It’s still not official, but once Woj says it’s happening, it’s happening. A shake-up is likely to be a great thing for this roster that contains at least a few unhappy star players in Kevin Love and Andre Drummond. Be ready to act on any significant role changes that come with this move. For example, will Larry Nance Jr. and/or Kevin Porter Jr. take on expanded roles?
