• Anzejs Pasecniks
    C, Washington Wizards

    Anzejs Pasecniks (left ankle sprain) is being listed as out for Monday's game against the Pistons.

    With the Wizards starting to get some of their frontcourt players back from injury, Pasecniks' role has been diminished even when he is healthy enough to go. He can be left on waiver wires.

  • 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
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    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.

  • Jeff Green
    SF, Houston Rockets

    The Rockets have signed Jeff Green for the rest of the season.

    Green is averaging 9.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in 17.9 minutes per game since joining the Rockets and both parties seem content with the fit. He has been playing backup center minutes and deserves consideration in deeper leagues.

  • Mitchell Robinson
    C, New York Knicks

    Tom Thibodeau is the front runner to become the next coach of the Knicks, according to Jonathan Macri of SI.com.

    In seven full seasons as coach with Chicago and Minnesota, Thibodeau has compiled a 352-246 record, while he has missed the playoffs just once, his first season with the Wolves. His serious demeanor and no-nonsense approach have earned him respect among team executives and stars like Jimmy Butler, but he has struggled to earn the trust of young and upcoming players. Leon Rose is also nearing his starting date as the team's president of basketball operations in what seems to be a busy offseason for the Knicks.

  • Dennis Smith Jr.
    PG, New York Knicks

    Dennis Smith Jr.’s starting stint is over, as Elfrid Payton is expected to return after a two-game absence from an ankle injury on Wednesday when the Knicks face the Hornets.

    DSJ had a strong game in Houston on Monday, putting up 15 points, five assists, seven steals and seven rebounds, but there were some defensive missteps and he committed three turnovers. With Frank Ntilikina still dealing with groin soreness Smith will likely get his minutes as the primary backup point guard and he deserves consideration in deeper leagues.

  • Dragan Bender
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Dragan Bender put up a goose egg (0-for-4 FGs) in 25 minutes vs. the Kings on Tuesday, adding just five rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Bender once again played an encouraging amount of minutes in just his second game with Golden State. And while he shouldn't be expected to go crazy this early on a new team, this performance is disappointing. For a young player still thought to have decent upside, it's looking like he won't be able to make nearly as much of his opportunity as Marquese Chriss has.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Golden State Warriors

    Andrew Wiggins scored 16 points (6-of-14 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) but did little else (one assist) in a 94-112 loss to the Kings on Tuesday.

    Wiggins' Warriors six-game tenure has been a mixed bag to this point. Unfortunately, that may be the case for the rest of the season, as the Warriors will likely have inconsistent rosters with Stephen Curry (left hand fracture) and Draymond Green (right pelvic contusion) in and out of the lineup. Hold onto Wiggins and hope we see more of those early-season performances.

  • Damion Lee
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Damion Lee contributed across the board in Tuesday's loss to the Kings as he posted 14 points (4-of-9 FGs), six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

    Lee has been a solid fantasy option in 12-team leagues for a while now, but a recent surge in steals has him sitting as a four-round player in 8-cat leagues and a third-round player in 9-cat leagues over the last two weeks. Stephen Curry (left hand fracture) returns in three games, so Lee's production will likely take a small hit.

  • Buddy Hield
    SG, Sacramento Kings

    Buddy Hield hit five 3-pointers as part of a 19-point (6-of-15 FGs), six-rebound, two-assist, one-steal performance in a 112-94 road victory over the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Hield, since exiting the starting lineup, has easily been an early-round player. He may not keep up such high shooting percentages and therefore will likely see a drop in threes and points as well. However, regardless of his role, Hield has solidified himself as a reliable top-35 player going forward.
