Knicks' Chasson Randle: Signing with Knicks1h ago
Chasson Randle will sign a partially guaranteed contract with the New York Knicks , Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
Randle was most recently waived by the 76ers after they needed to open up a roster spot, but with the Knicks lacking a legitimate second point guard behind Derrick Rose following the waiving of Brandon Jennings, the former Stanford standout didn't remain unemployed for long. In eight games with the 76ers, Randle averaged 5.3 points over nine minutes per game, and his deal will be partially guaranteed through the 2017-18 season. To start, New York may rely on the likes of Ron Baker or Justin Holiday to serve as primary ball-handlers, but is Randle can prove his worth early on, he could end up being a legitimate backup point guard option for the Knicks in the final stretch of the season.
Austin Rivers LAC PG
Clippers' Austin Rivers: Minimal production in Sunday loss1h ago
Austin Rivers finished with five points (2-8 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound and one assist across 20 minutes in Sunday's 124-121 overtime victory over the Hornets.
A productive night just wasn't in the cards for Rivers on Sunday, as he ran into serious foul trouble and had a difficult time finding the net while he was on the floor. The fifth-year guard came up empty from long range for the first time in eight games, while enduring his worst shooting night overall since Feb. 5. It remains to be seen what the long-term effect of Chris Paul's return will be on Rivers' production, and Sunday's game should be kept in perspective given the aforementioned circumstances. By comparison, the 24-year-old generated 23 points on 47 percent shooting over 27 minutes in Friday's tilt against the Spurs, which marked Paul's first game back in action.
Brandon Jennings NY PG
Brandon Jennings: Waived by Knicks1h ago
Brandon Jennings was waived Monday by the Knicks, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports.
Jennings reportedly told the team that he wished to play for a contender, so the Knicks decided to just waive the veteran point guard who is attached to a one-year contract. Should he go unclaimed, look for Jennings to explore his options with playoff contenders around the league, where he will likely be able to find a role as a solid No. 2 point guard. With Jennings out of New York, the Knicks plan to sign guard Chasson Randle, who was previously with the 76ers, as the team now lacks a legitimate second option at the point guard position.
DeAndre Jordan LAC C
Clippers' DeAndre Jordan: Explosive double-double in Sunday win1h ago
DeAndre Jordan submitted 20 points (9-10 FG, 2-4 FT), 19 rebounds, one assist, three steals and two blocks across 43 minutes in Sunday's 124-121 overtime victory over the Hornets.
Jordan had his way in the paint against the undersized Hornets, hauling in double-digit boards for the eighth time in the last 10 games. His rebound total was also his highest since Jan. 28, and Jordan's near-perfect effort from the field led to only his second 20-point performance in the last 16 contests. With Chris Paul back in the fold, Jordan's overall usage may see a slight downturn, but he continues to be one of the most reliable sources of rebounds in the entire league.
JJ Redick LAC SG
Clippers' J.J. Redick: Goes off for 22 points in Sunday win1h ago
JJ Redick supplied 22 points (9-16 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 38 minutes in Sunday's 124-121 overtime win over the Hornets.
Redick actually checked in as the second-highest scorer on the Los Angeles Clippers behind Blake Griffin, with Sunday representing only his second game over the 20-point mark in the last 16 contests. The 32-year-old saw a significant uptick in usage overall, as his 16 shot attempts were the most he'd taken since Jan. 11. Meanwhile, his 56.3 percent success rate from the floor was his best since Jan. 2, and with Chris Paul draining just four of 18 attempts Sunday, Redick's hot hand was especially timely.
Chris Paul LAC PG
Clippers' Chris Paul: Makes up for poor shooting with assists Sunday1h ago
Chris Paul managed 15 points (4-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 17 assists, nine rebounds and one steal across 41 minutes in Sunday's 124-121 overtime victory over the Hornets.
Despite the dismal shooting night, Paul actually had a chance to drain a game-winning basket at the end of regulation, but his 15-foot fallaway at the buzzer couldn't find the net. He made up for his struggles from the floor with stellar production in both assists and rebounds, with the 17 dimes serving as his third-best total in that category on the season. After missing five weeks with his thumb injury, Paul's shot may take a bit to come around, but he's encouragingly playing a full allotment of minutes already.
Ivan Barbashev STL LW
Blues' Ivan Barbashev: Sits out Sunday with injury3h ago
Ivan Barbashev was unavailable for Sunday's game against the Blackhawks due to an upper-body injury, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.
Barbashev, who was assigned to AHL Chicago during the St. Louis Blues ' bye week, was never recalled for Sunday's game because of the injury. The injury is not considered serious, but his status for Tuesday's home game against the Oilers is uncertain. Dmitri Jaskin took his spot on the active roster Sunday.
Magnus Paajarvi STL LW
Blues' Magnus Paajarvi: Provides lift in Sunday's loss3h ago
Magnus Paajarvi scored a goal and had four shots on net over 14:26 of ice time in Sunday's 4-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Paajarvi took advantage of a Chicago turnover in their own zone to give St. Louis a lift in the first period after they had fallen behind, 2-0. He's been placed in a top-9 role and has delivered four points (three goals, one assist) over eight games since being called up in early February. Speed is his calling card, but until now he hasn't made an impact offensively. With Robby Fabbri (knee) done for the season, the St. Louis Blues need one of their minor leaguers to be the next man up and Paajarvi is doing that right now.
Kyle Turris OTT C
Senators' Kyle Turris: Snipes game-winner against Florida8h ago
Kyle Turris netted the game-winning goal Sunday against the Panthers.
Turris had a very productive night, firing six shots on goal and picking up two PIM. The 27-year-old has struck three times in his last six games and has hit the 20-goal mark for the third time in his career. His 43 points aren't superstar caliber, but Turris is a lethal goal-scorer who centers the top line and plays on the power play with Erik Karlsson. Keep him rolling, as the Ottawa Senators are right in the thick of the playoff race and will depend on Turris heavily down the stretch.
Erik Karlsson OTT D
Senators' Erik Karlsson: Bags two helpers in win over Panthers8h ago
Erik Karlsson racked up a pair of assists in Sunday's win over the Panthers.
Just another day at the office for Karlsson, who is up to 54 points in 60 games. The Swedish rearguard is an offensive machine who is never afraid to take chances and join the rush. He's reached double digits in goals for the sixth consecutive time in a full season and is consistently piling on helpers. You know what to do.
James Reimer FLA G
Panthers' James Reimer: Outdueled in loss to Senators8h ago
James Reimer made 31 saves on 33 shots in Sunday's win over the Senators.
Reimer turned in an excellent performance, but his opposition Craig Anderson was just that much better. While he was burned for four goals in a loss to the Oilers on Wednesday, Reimer has been playing very well of late and could see a heavy workload down the stretch given the recent struggles of Roberto Luongo. Reimer could be worth a look right now, as he owns a 12-8-4 record with a solid .919 save percentage and has allowed two or fewer goals in six of his last eight outings.
Craig Anderson OTT G
Senators' Craig Anderson: Stymies Panthers with 37-save win8h ago
Craig Anderson stopped 37 of 38 shots in Sunday's win over the Panthers.
A monstrous showing from Anderson, who picked up his 16th win of the season. The 35-year-old has been outstanding since returning from his absence and should be started with confidence every night. With the Ottawa Senators sitting second in the Atlantic Division and battling for a playoff spot, Anderson and his .929 save percentage will be a very valuable fantasy asset down the stretch.
Nick Castellanos DET 3B
Tigers' Nick Castellanos: Returns to lineup Monday36m ago
Nick Castellanos (illness) will start at third base and bat sixth in the lineup for Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.
The Detroit Tigers will get two of their big bats in the middle lineup back in action Monday, as both Castellanos and J.D. Martinez (pectoral) return to action after brief absences. Castellanos had something of a breakout season in 2016 with a .285 average to go with 18 homers and 58 RBI in 447 plate appearances last season, and if he can enjoy better health in 2017, he could raise his numbers to even greater heights.
Taylor Motter SEA RF
Mariners' Taylor Motter: Back in lineup Monday40m ago
Taylor Motter (back) will play second base and bat seventh in the lineup in Monday's Cactus League game against the Royals, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Motter was sidelined for a few days of camp with a sore back, but his return to the lineup Monday suggests it was only a minor issue. The 27-year-old is expected to vie for a utility role with the Seattle Mariners during spring training, primarily competing with Shawn O'Malley for those duties.
David Peralta ARI RF
Diamondbacks' David Peralta: Joins lineup for Monday's Cactus League game1h ago
David Peralta is in the lineup for Monday's Cactus League game against the Reds, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Peralta's start to spring training was delayed due to visa issues, but he rejoined the team a few days ago and didn't fall too far behind the rest of the team in workouts. The 29-year-old appears poised to open the season as the team's everyday right fielder and could make for a good bargain on draft day after injuries derailed his 2016 campaign.
Steven Wright BOS SP
Red Sox's Steven Wright: Throws side session Sunday2h ago
Steven Wright (shoulder) threw a 45-pitch side session Sunday, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

Red Sox's Rick Porcello: Tosses sim game Sunday2h ago
Rick Porcello threw 37 pitches over two simulated innings Sunday, Peter Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.
Porcello threw mainly fastballs, focusing on the execution of his sinkers to both sides of the plate. He said he's on a five-day routine, which puts him on schedule to pitch Opening Day on Apr. 3 against the Pirates.
Ryan Schraeder ATL T
Falcons' Ryan Schraeder: No surgery required13h ago
Ryan Schraeder (ankle) will not require ankle surgery, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "No surgery," he said. "It's not that big of a deal. It just hurts like heck."
Schraeder went down in the Super Bowl with a torn ankle ligament and wasn't expected to need surgery anyway. However, it still isn't clear when he'll be cleared to play again. He has until April 17 before the Atlanta Falcons ' offseason program starts up.
Cardinals' Jared Veldheer: Nears full recovery from triceps surgery14h ago
Veldheer (triceps) is healthy and cleared to resume workouts, 12 News' Cameron Cox reports.
Veldheer finished the 2016 campaign on injured reserve after sustaining a partially torn triceps in late October. However, he recently implied he was cleared to resume weightlifting in late January or early February and should be back to full strength when offseason workouts commence in April.
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu: Cleared to resume football activities15h ago
Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (knee - ACL) is cleared to resume all football-related activities, The Oregonian reports.
Ekpre-Olomu spent the entire 2016 season on the Dolphins' injured reserve list after tearing his right ACL in August. Now healthy, he'll look to land another contract once free agency opens on Mar. 9.
Mario Addison CAR LB
Panthers' Mario Addison: Signs with Panthers17h ago
Mario Addison signed with the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.
Addison's deal is expected to go through the 2019 season. Last season, Addison tallied 27 tackles and led the team with 9.5 sacks.
Matt Elam BAL DB
Ravens' Matt Elam: Arrested on multiple drug charges1d ago
Matt Elam was arrested on three drug-related charges in Miami on Sunday, NFL.com's Jeremy Bergman reports.
Elam was initially pulled over for reckless driving early Sunday morning, but police booked him on charges of marijuana possession, possession with intent to sell or deliver and possession of a controlled substance. The former first-round pick appeared in nine games as a backup for the Baltimore Ravens last season, collecting four tackles. He's set to become a free agent in March after the Ravens declined his fifth-year option, but the arrest could hurt his chances of landing with a team.
Tony Romo DAL QB
Cowboys' Tony Romo: Has not had conversations with team yet2d ago
Team owner and general manager Jerry Jones is expected to make the decision on the future of Tony Romo soon, but Jones said he has not yet spoken with the veteran quarterback, Charean William of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
It was previously reported that the two sides would speak before the NFL Scouting Combine, and that begins Tuesday. Rookie Dak Prescott stepped in for the injured veteran and had a magical season. Prescott is expected to start in 2017, but it is possible the veteran Romo could be kept around as insurance. It would likely take a pay cut to make that happen. Vegas even has odds on Romo's 2017 team, and the Dallas Cowboys are considered the favorite (along with the Broncos).
