• Free agent Josh Smith is interested in a potential reunion with the Rockets, per ESPN’s Kelly Iko.

    Smith has always had 5 x 5 potential but shot his way out of the league by refusing to give up the ghost on his misguided 3-point dreams. Iko reports that “a deal could be in the works soon,” and Houston does have some space for minimum contracts. There’s no fantasy implications for now and so far there’s been no word on whether there’s any two-way interest. It’d be a neat comeback story, at least.

Fantasy News

  • Edmond Sumner
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Edmond Sumner (sore left hip) is considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Blazers.

    Sumner hasn't played since February 8. He's not worth owning in fantasy.

  • Victor Oladipo
    SG, Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (sore lower back) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game.

    Oladipo hasn't played since leaving Friday's game but hopefully won't be out for much longer. He has struggled with his shot so far, but that can be expected after missing so much time. Aaron Holiday played 30 minutes on Tuesday in his absence.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    De'Andre Hunter (right ankle sprain) is not on the injury report and is expected to play during Wednesday's game.

    Hunter had previously been listed as probable. He has averaged 13.7 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists, and 1.6 steals in his last ten contests.

  • Trae Young
    PG, Atlanta Hawks

    Trae Young (illness) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game.

    Young has been experiencing flu-like symptoms. While nobody on the roster can adequately fill his shoes, Jeff Teague is likely to fill in if Young takes the night off.

  • Coby White
    PG, Chicago Bulls

    Coby White has been stellar in his last three games, but Jim Boylen wants him focusing on defense, as well as to what he’s been doing on the offensive end, and that’s why starting is not an option right now.

    White has been on fire of late, averaging 33.7 points (on 57.4 percent shooting), 5.3 rebounds, and 2.3 assists while also knocking down 6.0 3-pointers per game on 58.1 percent. This kind of production is defining not sustainable while Wendell Carter Jr. and Otto Porter Jr. are expected back soon but you should enjoy the current hot streak.

  • Wendell Carter Jr.
    C, Chicago Bulls

    Wendell Carter Jr. (ankle) and Denzel Valentine (hamstring) have been assigned to the Windy City Bulls in order to participate in Wednesday’s scrimmage.

    Both guys seem to nearing a return and this is another step towards this direction. The Bulls don’t play again until Saturday but you should be looking to add WCS if he’s available in the waiver wire.

  • Damian Lillard
    PG, Portland Trail Blazers

    Damian Lillard (right groin strain) will be with the Blazers on their upcoming 3-game trip, but he is expected to miss "a couple more games", according to Jason Quick of the Athletic.

    Lillard was expected to miss at least 3-4 games so there is a chance he returns at some point during the current trip. C.J. McCollum has been the biggest beneficiary in his absence with Gary Trent Jr. and Anfernee Simons also getting an extended run.

  • Frank Ntilikina
    PG, New York Knicks

    Frank Ntilikina will miss Wednesday's game against the Hornets due to a sore groin.

    This will be the second consecutive game where Ntilikina won’t be able to play. Elfrid Payton is expected to be back though while Dennis Smith Jr. is getting the backup minutes for now.

  • Mychal Mulder

    The Warriors are signing guard Mychal Mulder of the G League Sioux Falls to a 10-day contract.

    Mulder played with the Bulls in the Summer League and spent some time with the Heat in this year’s training camp. The Warriors continue to audition guys and Mulder is the next one who will have a chance to impress Golden State.

  • Dion Waiters
    SG, Free Agent

    Dion Waiters will have a meeting with the Lakers on March 2nd, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

    After missing out on Reggie Jackson and failing to convince Darren Collison to come out of retirement, Los Angeles is still interested in bringing in another playmaker guard. As long as any player is a free agent as of March 1st, they are playoff eligible with their next team if they sign before the final day of the regular season. Waiters was waived by the Grizzlies after the trade deadline and he has been working out in the Los Angeles area.
