Anthony Davis (shoulder) participated in the team's shootaround and will try to play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

Mar 4 - 11:39 AM

Dwight Buycks has reportedly signed with the Oklahoma City Blue of the NBA D-League.

He might be able to land a 10-day contract with an NBA team if he impresses in the D-League, but Buycks is well off the fantasy radar in almost all leagues for the time being.
Mar 4 - 11:29 AM

The Pelicans have signed G Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

He participated in the team's shootaround and is expected to be available for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons. However, Williams likely won't be in the rotation right out of the gate, so owners in deeper leagues can simply monitor him from the waiver wire for now.
Mar 4 - 11:22 AM

The Raptors are reportedly interested in acquiring JaVale McGee once he clears waivers on Wednesday evening.

The Heat and Mavericks are also said to be interested, but McGee wouldn't have a large enough role on any team to be a factor in most fantasy leagues. We will continue to follow this story closely, but it's safe to leave McGee on the wire.
Mar 4 - 11:12 AM

Danny Granger, who was recently acquired in a trade with Miami at the deadline, may finally join the Suns soon.

It's officially too late for him to join a contender if he were to be bought out by the Suns, so Granger has no choice but to suit up for the Suns if he wants to keep playing. That being said, Granger wouldn't be in the rotation upon his arrival in Phoenix, so owners can safely leave him on the waiver wire in almost all leagues.
Mar 4 - 11:04 AM

Goran Dragic (back) will play on Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

He was unable to practice on Tuesday and is said to be dealing with back spasms and a sore shoulder, but it's great to see that it won't force him to miss any action. Dragic is coming off a 21-point performance vs. the Suns on Monday, so his owners can confidently deploy him in all active lineups.
Mar 4 - 10:56 AM

Luke Ridnour (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Suns on Wednesday.

Ridnour is averaging just 13.7 minutes per game in a backup role behind rookie Elfrid Payton, so his absence wouldn't have many fantasy implications. It's safe to leave Ridnour on the wire in all but the deepest of leagues.
Mar 4 - 10:09 AM

Evan Fournier (hip) was limited at practice on Tuesday, and he remains questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

Fournier has missed the last two games and recently said that his hip is still giving him problems, so he is probably closer to doubtful for Wednesday. Fournier has averages of 11.9 points and 1.4 3-pointers this season, so his value is currently limited to deeper leagues at the moment. If Fournier remains sidelined, veteran Willie Green will continue to see an uptick in minutes off the bench.
Mar 4 - 10:08 AM

Aaron Gordon (ankle) was limited at practice on Tuesday, and he is considered questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

The rookie has missed the Magic's last two games, and they have absolutely no reason to rush him back before he is 100 percent. Gordon is averaging just 15.5 minutes per game this season, so he won't be a reliable option in almost any league until his role grows significantly. Leave Gordon on the wire and expect Channing Frye and Andrew Nicholson to soak up his minutes if he remains on the shelf for Wednesday's game.
Mar 4 - 10:06 AM

Tobias Harris (knee) was limited at practice on Tuesday, but he is expected to play against the Suns on Wednesday.

Harris collided with Victor Oladipo during Sunday's game vs. the Hornets, but he remained in the game and ended up playing 34 minutes. Harris may not be 100 percent, but he will continue to be a must-start option in all leagues as long as he is active.
Mar 4 - 10:05 AM

Monta Ellis will reportedly opt out of his contract this summer in order to pursue a multi-year deal in free agency.

He is boasting averages of 19.4 points, 4.4 assists, 2.4 boards, 1.9 steals and 1.2 3-pointers per game this season and is one of the most durable players in the league, so Ellis will surely generate a ton of interest around the NBA this summer. The Mavericks will surely do everything they can to keep Ellis in Dallas, as he has arguably surpassed Dirk Nowitzki as the team's best player this season.
Mar 4 - 9:53 AM

Ricky Ledo has joined the Texas Legends of the NBA D-League.

He was recently waived by the Mavericks when they signed Amare Stoudemire, but Ledo will have to prove his worth once again in the D-League in order to earn another shot in the NBA. Ledo has a lot of potential, but he likely won't have any fantasy value this season. Leave him on the wire.
Mar 4 - 9:44 AM

Kevin Love had to receive an IV after Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics and said that he may have food poisoning, but he will play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

It clearly doesn't sound like Love is 100 percent, but his owners can safely keep him in all active lineups today in a huge matchup with Toronto. Love scored just 12 points with eight boards in a blowout victory over the Celtics on Tuesday, so hopefully he will be a little more involved on offense tonight.
Mar 4 - 9:35 AM

The NBA has fined the Knicks an undisclosed amount for Phil Jackson's comments on D'Angelo Russell of Ohio State.

Russell is an exciting prospect that has turned heads during his freshman campaign at Ohio State, but NBA rules prohibit teams from publicly commenting on players who haven't officially declared for the draft. Jackson called Russell a "a great-looking kid" and a "great prospect" when he scouted last week's game between Ohio State and Nebraska, and considering that Russell is presumed by many to be a top-5 pick in this year's draft, at least now we know that the Knicks will be intrigued by him if he does declare for the draft.

Even though he hasn't officially announced his retirement, Steve Nash admitted that his NBA career is likely over.

"Unfortunately the NBA game is just a touch too far for me. I play one game and I’m out a month. I have a bunch of back things going on that compromise that nerve," Nash said. "I never worked as hard as I did the last 18 months, two years, twice a day almost every day to try to just give it that one last year. And I finally just had to admit that it’s just not meant to be." Nash has been a ghost of his former self for the past few years largely due his age and his constant battle with injuries, but Nash will retire as an NBA legend when the time comes and there is no denying the impact that he had on the NBA.
