Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) will not play against the Cavs on Friday or the Raptors on Sunday.

There's a good chance the 76ers just hold him out for the rest of the season. Plus, the team will likely be trying to trade him based on how they've had better success when Okafor is out of the lineup. Richaun Holmes will look to build off his career-high 25 points while Shawn Long backs him up. Holmes should be owned in all leagues while Long is worth a look in deeper formats.

Robert Covington (right knee) will not make the trip for games on Friday and Sunday as doctors continue to evaluate results of his MRI.

He's already missed one game with his right knee soreness and had an MRI on Wednesday. Considering the 76ers are in the mix for the No. 4 to No. 8 spot in the lottery, they may just hold Covington out to get a longer look at Justin Anderson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. Covington's fantasy owners may have to consider dropping him while Anderson makes for a solid pickup the rest of the week.

Quincy Pondexter (knee) will not play again this season.

He underwent left knee arthroscopic surgery on Jan. 4 and hasn't played all season. Pondexter is under contract for next season, so the Pelicans will be hoping the oft-injured forward can have a healthy offseason.

Omer Asik (illness) will not play again this season.

He was diagnosed with a gastrointestinal infection and is expected to return to basketball activities in 3-4 weeks. The Pelicans may try to move Asik's contract this summer.

Marc Gasol (left foot) is still considered day-to-day, according to coach David Fizdale.

"I think he feels a little better, but I don't know if he'll be ready," Fizdale said. "I don't see it right now." That's not exactly encouraging news for Gasol's status against the Mavs on Friday. If Gasol can't go, Brandan Wright would likely get another start while Zach Randolph also benefits.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Mavs veterans will rest either Monday or Tuesday.

In other words, the Mavs losing to the Pelicans on Wednesday has knocked them out of the postseason and the team will get a look at their young players. That means Dirk Nowitzki, Wesley Matthews, Nerlens Noel, J.J. Barea, Devin Harris and Harrison Barnes could be missing time.

James Harden (left wrist) said he'll play on Thursday against the Blazers.

He had his shooting wrist wrapped at shootaround and he has been playing through it since Mar. 18 when he took a nasty spill at Denver. "It will get better but if I keep banging on it and keep falling on it then it's going to keep going back too square one," Harden said Thursday morning. "I try to limit banging on it and keeping it away from contact, it's kinda hard because it's my left hand. I do a lot with my left hand." For now, his fantasy owners can plug him in there as he attempts to go for MVP.

Darrell Arthur (knee) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

The guy just can't shake his knee issue. Unless you're tanking in your fantasy league, leave Arthur on the wire.
Mar 30 - 1:41 PM

Mason Plumlee (abdominal contusion) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

His minutes are way down these days because the Nuggets are playing more small ball with Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari healthy. It also doesn't help that Kenneth Faried has played well off the bench. Plumlee failed to score in 16 minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday and belongs on the wire in standard leagues.
Mar 30 - 1:39 PM

Will Barton is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets due to foot soreness.

Barton has seen his minutes drop with Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari healthy, so this new foot issue will give his owners even more incentive to drop him. If Barton sits on Friday, Jamal Murray could get a nice bump in minutes off the bench, but standard-league owners should probably look elsewhere.
Mar 30 - 1:37 PM

Brandon Ingram (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Wolves.

While he was listed as questionable, coach Luke Walton made it sound like he didn't have a chance of playing in this one. The Lakers aren't considering shutting him down, so his next chance to play is on Saturday vs. the Clippers. The Lakers will start D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac. David Nwaba should get some extended run off the bench with Ingram out.
Mar 30 - 1:16 PM

Jon Leuer will start again on Thursday vs. the Nets.

He's still not a great fantasy option and is coming off a poor game on Tuesday when he finished with just two points, four boards, a steal and a block in 17 minutes. As for Tobias Harris, he looked great off the bench with 19 points, six boards, two steals and four 3-pointers. Leuer is more of a deep-leauge streaming option since this is a great matchup.
Mar 30 - 1:03 PM

Reggie Jackson (knee) will be inactive again on Thursday vs. the Nets.

Despite reports of R-Jax possibly being shut down, coach Stan Van Gundy said earlier this week that the PG is day-to-day. Ish Smith will see a heavy workload in Jackson's absence and is worth a look if you need assists and steals. Beno Udrih will back him up. Jackson's owners should move on if they haven't already.
Mar 30 - 1:01 PM

Cristiano Felicio (tailbone) "should be" available on Thursday vs. the Cavaliers.

Assuming he's ready to return from a three-game absence, Felico could take back his backup center minutes from Joffrey Lauvergene. He's not a realistic fantasy option while Robin Lopez is healthy, though.
Mar 30 - 12:17 PM

Kyle Korver (foot) will go through a workout on Friday and is hopeful to return on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

In case you missed it, Korver has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls and Friday's game vs. Philly. The Cavs will need Korver to be at or close to 100 percent for the postseason, so expect his workload to be monitored upon his return. We'll have an update on Friday evening.
