Amare Stoudemire (hand) will start Game 4 on Sunday, as the Knicks look to avoid a sweep on their home court.

It remains to be seen how much Amare can contribute with his hand swathed in bandages, and his presence won't matter if New York can't slow down Miami's offense. It will be interesting to see how the fans react -- his willingness to play through pain is commendable, but this is the second straight playoffs he's been needlessly injured (last year he hurt his back on a trick dunk during warmups).

Jaylen Brown (hip) will return to the starting lineup and Marcus Smart will move to the bench against the Raptors on Friday.

It'll be Isaiah Thomas, Brown, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson and Al Horford. Brown played 24.5 minutes per game as a starting guard with just 9.0 points per game, so he's not really a great fantasy option. His return suggests Smart will be back around 30 minutes tonight.

Thaddeus Young (wrist) and C.J. Miles are in the starting lineup against the Grizzlies on Friday.

Young will get his first action since an ugly fall on Feb. 3. While it is to his shooting wrist, Young didn't have structural damage and the All-Star break likely helped him get close to 100 percent. Get him in your lineups.
Feb 24 - 6:41 PM

Domantas Sabonis will get another start against the Lakers on Friday night.

There is a very good chance this is his last go 'round. Taj Gibson is coming off the bench today and Sabonis just did not show any improvement during his time while Enes Kanter (arm) was out. If you were riding Sabonis in your deep league, go find someone else.
Feb 24 - 6:36 PM

Victor Oladipo (back spasms) is a game-time decision to face the Lakers on Friday.

This is a new injury for Oladipo for his first game after the break, so that's not really a good sign. If he can't play the Thunder may have to turn to Alex Abrines more often, especially with Anthony Morrow in Chicago. Abrines would be a risky play, of course.
Feb 24 - 6:29 PM

Kyle Lowry (right wrist) will not play against the Celtics on Friday night.

Ouch. Coach Dwane Casey said he doesn't know how long Lowry will be out and the team announced he will receive further evaluation over the weekend. Lowry has owned the Celtics this season, but now the Raptors will have to turn to Cory Joseph as their primary scoring one. Although, it is certainly possible Delon Wright or Fred VanVleet get the start. DeMar DeRozan should be very busy tonight.
Feb 24 - 6:26 PM

Cameron Payne (illness) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

The other former Thunder players are good to go, but Payne has the flu. The Bulls overpaid for Payne, so they will likely give him decent minutes once he gets a grip on the offense. He'll have a lot of bumps in the road in his new role, but he's worth a look in fantasy leagues if you need a point guard.
Feb 24 - 6:20 PM

P.J. Tucker is available to play against the Celtics on Friday night.

The Raptors kept Serge Ibaka out for his game after a trade, but the Raptors will have Tucker available off the bench. He will likely be used as a second-unit defender, but he could take minutes away from DeMarre Carroll when Carroll goes into one of his numerous slumps. Tucker is more of a drop than an add.
Feb 24 - 6:09 PM

Al Jefferson (dental pain) will not play on Friday against the Grizzlies.

Hopefully this is just a one-day thing for Jefferson, who was not on the injury report just an hour ago. With the Pacers getting their power forwards back, Kevin Seraphin should slide over the backup five spot behind Myles Turner against the bigger Memphis front line. Turner also get a slight bump, too.
Feb 24 - 5:37 PM

Chris Paul (thumb) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Spurs.

For what it's worth, Chris Paul tweeted "back at it" this afternoon, which suggests he'll be back out there. Paul is still about a full week ahead of his timetable, but he is medically cleared to play. This game won't tip until 10:30 EST, so we likely won't be getting anything concrete on his status until 9:00. If CP3 is back, Austin Rivers and Raymond Felton figure to lose minutes.
Feb 24 - 3:23 PM

Coach Gregg Popovich confirmed that Pau Gasol (hand) will play Friday night vs. the Clippers.

Gasol has not suited up since breaking his hand in pregame warmups back on January 19th. The 2016-17 campaign has been a disappointing one for Gasol. He is averaging career-lows in many statistical categories, including points (11.7) and minutes (26.4). He ranks just outside the top-80 overall in nine-category fantasy leagues this season. Gasol's return will eat into the minutes of David Lee, Dewayne Dedmon and Davis Bertans.

Malcolm Delaney will start in place of the suspended Dennis Schroder on Friday night vs. Miami.



RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Delaney will draw the start at PG on Friday, and he immediately becomes one of the most appealing value plays on the slate. He's priced at or near the minimum on every DFS outlet, and given that he should see upwards of 30 minutes with a healthy usage rate - he's at 21.4% without Schroder on the floor - he's a fine play in any format. As of this writing, he sits as the top dollar per point play in the RotoGrinders projections. Millsap, Bazemore and Hardaway Jr. also see upticks with Schroder off the floor, as all three pick up between 3-4% in the way of usage.
