Bulls' Isaiah Canaan: Could have contract bought out2h ago
Isaiah Canaan is a candidate to get waived by the Chicago Bulls in the coming weeks, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The Bulls are overloaded at both backcourt spots, and with neither Canaan nor Michael Carter-Williams (knee) shaping up as rotation options at this stage of the season and both on expiring deals, it would make sense for Chicago to let one of them go in order to address depth at another position. Canaan may be the more vulnerable of the two players in losing his roster spot, as he's appeared in just eight of the Bulls' last 32 games and lacks the overall upside of Carter-Williams, a former Rookie of the Year winner who has had a handful of productive outings this season. Even if he's ultimately released and quickly lands a roster spot elsewhere, it seems unlikely that Canaan will find his way into meaningful minutes, given his status as an undersized guard who is shooting a lowly 27.3 percent from three-point range on the season.
Michael Carter-Williams CHI PG
Bulls' Michael Carter-Williams: Could get waived2h ago
Michael Carter-Williams (knee) could be waived by the Chicago Bulls , K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Carter-Williams is dealing with some patellar tendinitis in his knee that will likely prevent him from playing Tuesday against the Nuggets and perhaps in some games to follow, but that appears to be the least of his worries for the time being. Instead, it's the Bulls' logjam at point guard that remains more troubling for Carter-Williams, who will likely find himself behind Jerian Grant, Rajon Rondo and Cameron Payne on the depth chart once he's healthy again. Since Carter-Williams is slated to become a restricted free agent this summer and has done little this season to justify a long-term commitment from the Bulls, it wouldn't be too surprising if the team decided to just wash their hands of the former Rookie of the Year completely in order to add depth at another position. Along with Carter-Williams, Isaiah Canaan, another non-rotation guard on an expiring deal, is also a candidate to get waived.
Brandon Jennings: Hornets not interested in services2h ago
The Hornets don't have interest in signing Brandon Jennings , ESPN.com's Marc Stein reports.
After Jennings was waived by the Knicks on Monday, his former coach in Detroit, Stan Van Gundy, indicated that the point guard was en route to Charlotte and likely to sign with the Hornets, but it appears those reports were premature. Though the Hornets are lacking in depth at point guard following the multi-week injury to reserve Ramon Sessions (knee), the team recently added D-League standout Briante Weber on a 10-day contract, and are apparently satisfied with him and Brian Roberts as their backup point guards behind starter Kemba Walker. While it appears we can cross one potential destination off the list for Jennings, the 27-year-old is still likely to attract interest from other contending clubs, with the Wizards reportedly being one of those teams, according to Turner Sports' David Aldridge.
Zaza Pachulia GS C
Warriors' Zaza Pachulia: Season-high scoring Monday3h ago
Zaza Pachulia scored 16 points (5-5 FG, 6-7 FT) to go along with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one blocked shot over 15 minutes in Monday's 119-108 win over Philadelphia.
Pachulia dominated Philadelphia's Jahlil Okafor, surprising the former third-overall pick with a series of drives and then denying him at the other end. On a night when Golden State's more heralded players had a rough night from the field, Pachulia stepped up to fill a scoring void, providing a season-high in points -- just the 10th time this season he's hit for double-figure scoring.
Kevin Durant GS SF
Warriors' Kevin Durant: Team-high scorer in Monday's win4h ago
Kevin Durant scored 27 points (8-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 10-11 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, four assists and one blocked shot over 33 minutes in Monday's 119-108 victory over the 76ers.
Durant played his first game since sitting out one contest due to a finger injury. Durant has a knack for drawing contact and getting to the free-throw line, so with all three of Golden State's top marksmen struggling to make shots, his work at the charity stripe helped the Golden State Warriors grind through an unexpectedly challenging night. He leads Golden State with 6.4 free-throw attempts per game.
Kosta Koufos SAC C
Kings' Kosta Koufos: Finishes with double-double on Monday7h ago
Kosta Koufos posted 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and an assist over 25 minutes in Monday's 102-88 loss against the Timberwolves.
It was just the second double-double of the season for Koufos, and first since Dec. 16. Despite the solid performance, he is not terribly consistent and his playing time also continues to be rather erratic. His fantasy appeal remains limited to deeper formats.
Josh Ho-Sang NYI RW
Islanders' Josh Ho-Sang: Called up Tuesday25m ago
Josh Ho-Sang was brought up to the Capitals on an emergency basis Tuesday.
The New York Islanders have several forwards dealing with injuries -- including winger Andrew Ladd, who has suffered a back ailment -- giving Ho-Sang the opportunity to be around the big club ahead of Thursday's road game against the Stars. A highly touted prospect with great hands, Ho-Sang has picked up 36 points (10 goals, 26 assists) in 48 games with the AHL's Sound Tigers this season. He'd be a sneaky bargain play in daily leagues if the injured regulars need more time to heal.
Conor Sheary PIT LW
Penguins' Conor Sheary: Taking steps toward return29m ago
Coach Mike Sullivan was encouraged with Conor Sheary 's (upper body) limited practice session Monday. "His next step is a full-contact practice and then we'll have decisions to make," Sullivan said.
Sheary won't play Tuesday but is closing in on a return. With 17 goals and 18 assists in 42 games, the 5-foot-8 spark plug is surpassing expectations while serving as Sidney Crosby's linemate. Given his progression from injury, Sheary's best shot at returning to the lineup appears to be Friday. It will be interesting to see whether the Pens immediately slot him back onto the top line with Crosby.
Blues' Brad Malone: Dealt to St. Louis40m ago
The Capitals sent Brad Malone , Zach Sanford, a 2017 first-round draft choice, and a conditional pick to the St. Louis Blues in exchange for star defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk and goalie Pheonix Copley on Monday.
Malone didn't get the opportunity to play in any NHL games with the Capitals this season, but that could change with his arrival to St. Louis. Currently, the Blues have Ivan Barbashev (upper body) and Ryan Reaves (foot) labeled as day-to-day on top second-year phenom Robby Fabbri being lost for the season due to an ACL tear. Malone is a physical pivot who has averaged more PIM (188) than games played (176) in his NHL career, but he'll be hard-pressed to carve out the type of role that would impress the masses in the fantasy realm.
Kris Letang PIT D
Penguins' Kris Letang: Takes part in limited practice Monday41m ago
Kris Letang (upper body) skated Monday with the team but didn't take part in full practice. "He left early because we were going to do some contact stuff and he was no-contact," coach Mike Sullivan noted.
He almost surely won't play Tuesday in Dallas. Letang scored one goal and 11 points in his last 10 games before suffering his most recent injury. It wouldn't be surprising to see him return to the lineup Friday at home following Pittsburgh's quick two-game road trip.
Tristan Jarry PIT G
Penguins' Tristan Jarry: Trade deadline could impact status1h ago
Tristan Jarry could serve as Matt Murray's backup if Marc-Andre Fleury is traded by the deadline and the team opts not to acquire another goalie.
Chances are that Pittsburgh would want a veteran netminder backing up Murray, but Jarry has played well for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The 21-year-old has recorded a 23-11-1 mark with a 2.28 GAA and .920 save percentage. We should know by Wednesday afternoon's deadline whether Jarry will hold any short-term value.
Dylan Larkin DET C
Red Wings' Dylan Larkin: Caught in major rut2h ago
Dylan Larkin hasn't found the scoresheet in the past seven games.
Larkin has been playing bottom-six minutes, which curtails his fantasy production to a large degree. With the trade deadline looming and the Wings well out of the playoff picture, GM Ken Holland is reportedly expected to deal second-line scoring veteran Thomas Vanek -- he would be a rental player for teams as an unrestricted free agent this summer -- and that could result in a higher depth chart position for Larkin, who is exempt from exposure in the expansion draft.
Steven Matz NYM SP
Mets' Steven Matz: Will make spring debut Monday25m ago
Steven Matz (shoulder) is scheduled to make his first Grapefruit League start Monday against the Marlins, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.
Though the New York Mets purposely delayed his spring debut, Matz entered camp without any notable limitations following an injury-plagued 2016 season. The lefty was sidelined for the final six weeks with a shoulder injury that ultimately didn't require surgery, though he did go under the knife to remove a bone spur from his pitching elbow. Durability concerns have followed Matz throughout his professional career, but when healthy, he's proven himself as one of the better mid-rotation starters in baseball. So long as fantasy owners don't draft Matz expecting him to throw 200 innings, he's still capable of delivering helpful ratios and strikeout totals when he's able to take the mound.
Adam Eaton WAS CF
Nationals' Adam Eaton: Hits sixth Monday27m ago
Adam Eaton hit sixth during Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, going 0-for-2.
Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker seems committed to keeping Trea Turner in the leadoff spot, but hasn't yet figured out what to do with Eaton. His fantasy value would take a noticeable hit if he ends up batting lower in the order, with the likes of Ryan Zimmerman and Matt Wieters to drive him in instead of Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy, but there's still a long way to go until Opening Day.
Blake Snell TB SP
Rays' Blake Snell: Uneven effort in first spring start28m ago
Snell, Blake , who gave up an earned run on four hits over two innings and also recorded a strikeout in Monday's 7-2 Grapefruit League win over the Phillies, made an in-game adjustment with his delivery, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The promising southpaw missed high with his fastball early on, a problem that Snell has been diligently addressing in his bullpen work this spring. The spotty command helped lead to a sticky situation in the first, which culminated in an RBI single by Maikel Franco after Snell had already allowed Howie Kendrick and Michael Saunders to get on. However, Snell recognized his left shoulder was flying open during his delivery and made the necessary correction, helping him get through his second and final frame in somewhat smoother fashion. Although the 24-year-old has an impressive four-pitch arsenal, manager Kevin Cash continues to emphasize improved fastball command to Snell, whose solid 3.54 ERA in 2016 could be even better with a reduction of the 1.62 WHIP he also generated during his rookie campaign.
Tanner Roark WAS SP
Nationals' Tanner Roark: Cruises in first spring start Monday31m ago
Tanner Roark gave up two hits and struck out four in three shutout innings during Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.
He could make one more spring appearance before heading out to take part in the WBC for Team USA, but Roark already seems to be in midseason form as he stifled a St. Louis lineup that consisted mainly of big league regulars. He'll make one start for the American team during the tournament before heading back to camp.
Matt Harvey NYM SP
Mets' Matt Harvey: Scheduled to pitch Sunday31m ago
Matt Harvey (shoulder) is scheduled to make his Grapefruit League debut Sunday against the Cardinals, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.
Harvey struggled mightily in 2016 before he was shut down for good in July after requiring thoracic outlet surgery, but the former staff ace progressed about as well as the New York Mets could have hoped throughout the offseason and entered spring training at full strength. Though spring-training stats are normally worth disregarding, those planning on investing in shares of Harvey will at least want to keep an eye on his velocity and command in Grapefruit League play in order to ascertain if the 27-year-old has returned to reasonable form. Even if he makes it through the spring unscathed, Harvey will still carry plenty of injury risk during the season, but his price may have dropped enough to make him worth the gamble in drafts and auctions.
Trea Turner WAS SS
Nationals' Trea Turner: Goes yard Monday34m ago
Trea Turner went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.
He once again hit leadoff, and Nats manager Dusty Baker seems committed to keeping him in that spot despite the offseason acquisition of Adam Eaton, who hit sixth in this one. Turner could have a hard time repeating his 2016 numbers at the plate given last year's .391 BABIP, but he should still provide plenty of value hitting at the top of a potent Washington offense.
David Parry IND NT
Colts' David Parry: Arrested in Scottsdale, AZ12h ago
David Parry (pectoral) was arrested over the weekend in Scottsdale, AZ for driving under the influence, criminal damage, auto theft, suspicion of robbery, and resisting arrest, Holly V. Hays of the Indianapolis Star reports.
The incident was first brought to light Monday, but specific details of the situation have yet to be released fully. The 24-year-old has started all 32 games for the Indianapolis Colts during his two-year career, despite ending last season with a pectoral strain.
Melvin Ingram SD OLB
Chargers' Melvin Ingram: Receives franchise tag from Chargers14h ago
Melvin Ingram received the Los Angeles Chargers ' franchise tag on Monday, CSN's Albert Breer reports.
Ingram and the Chargers still have until July 15 to reach a long-term deal. However, in the event the two sides don't agree to terms in time, it isn't clear if he'll be priced as a linebacker or a defensive end. The former is estimated to amount to $15 million while the latter will likely come in around $17 million. Ingram hasn't missed a game the last two seasons and racked up 18.5 sacks and 125 tackles across that time span. Combined with the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, Joey Bosa, he's now set to spearhead the Chargers' pass rush for at least one more year.
Robert Woods BUF WR
Bills' Robert Woods: Like Tyrod Taylor, status up in the air16h ago
Robert Woods , about to become an unrestricted free agent, said in a Sirius XM Radio interview last week that he'd prefer to be back with the Buffalo Bills , though what the team decides to do with quarterback Tyrod Taylor will also be a factor, BuffaloBills.com reports. "I think there's always hope," said Woods. "I finished out well with them had a good talk with Doug Whaley upstairs. ... I've got to speak with them and see their plans and see what happens with the quarterback decision there. Everything factors in. It has to be the right amount as well as the quarterback decision. They don't have a quarterback right now. Tyrod is a pending free agent. EJ Manuel is coming up as a free agent and there are many quarterbacks on the market as well. Who knows the decisions that are going on upstairs, but we'll all find out in a few weeks. I could see Buffalo still sticking with Tyrod most definitely."
It also matters what the Bills want to do with Woods, who won't come cheap even though he's had modest but not great numbers since the team made him a second-round pick in 2013. We'll see where this leads, as the team has almost nothing at wideout right now after Sammy Watkins (foot). If the Bills decide Woods is too expensive, or he's not interested in returning with a new quarterback, it's possible the team could take Mike Williams or Corey Davis with the No. 10 pick in the upcoming draft.
Greg Van Roten
Jaguars' Greg Van Roten: Signs wth Jaguars17h ago
Greg Van Roten signed a contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, Jacksonville.com reports.
Van Roten spent the last two seasons with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts and was named the team's Most Outstanding Lineman in both. He has limited NFL experience consisting of 10 game appearances for the Packers in 2012 and 2013 and will now compete for a depth role with the Jaguars.
Avery Young NO T
Avery Young: Waived by Saints17h ago
Avery Young (undisclosed) was waived by the Saints on Monday, Herbie Teope of The Times-Picayune reports.
Young spent the 2016 season on the Saints' reserve/non-football injury list with an undisclosed ailment. When healthy, the Auburn product could land a contract with a team in need of a versatile offensive lineman that can play both guard and tackle.
Kenny Stills MIA WR
Dolphins' Kenny Stills: Not expected back in Miami17h ago
Kenny Stills is expected to leave Miami in free agency, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.
Stills had a big season in 2016 with 42 receptions, 726 yards, and nine touchdowns. The Miami Dolphins would like him back and will talk to his representative at the NFL Scouting Combine, but in the end Stills is expected to require a contract with an AAV of $12 million per season, which is likely to be too much for Miami to spend with Jarvis Landry and DeVante Parker requiring pay raises in the next two years.
