Celtics' Isaiah Thomas: Leads all scorers in win over Pistons2h ago
Tomas scored 33 points (10-23 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 8-9 FT) to go along with three assists, three steals and two rebounds over the course of 35 minutes during Sunday's 104-98 win over the Pistons.
Isaiah Thomas struggled a bit from the field, but he still led all scorers in the contest thanks to a strong showing from beyond the three-point arc. He managed to record multiple steals for the first time this month after totaling just three in 10 February contests, although his rebound and assist totals remain lacking at times. That said, Thomas still ranks second in the NBA with an average of 29.9 points per game and continues to operate as an elite scorer.
Jae Crowder BOS SF
Celtics' Jae Crowder: Posts double-double in win over Pistons2h ago
Jae Crowder posted 14 points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Sunday's 104-98 win over the Pistons.
Despite attempting just eight field goals, Crowder still managed an effective scoring performance as he tied his season high in free throw attempts and rounded out his double-double with the second-best rebounding effort of his NBA career. He capped off a solid all-around effort with five dimes and should continue to play a valuable role for the Boston Celtics , although his contributions could diminish a bit when Avery Bradley (Achilles) returns to action.
Andre Drummond DET C
Pistons' Andre Drummond: Endures miserable free throw shooting2h ago
Andre Drummond scored 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-11 FT) to go along with 15 rebounds and two steals across 36 minutes during Sunday's 104-98 loss to the Celtics.
Drummond managed a double-double thanks to an efficient shooting performance from the field, but a miserable performance at the free throw line squandered what could have been a much more impressive scoring output. This woeful showing at the line will drop Drummond's career-best 44 percent output in that regard, but he will remain valuable to his fantasy owners if he continues to rebound at a high rate while piling up steals and contributing in blocks as well.
Reggie Jackson DET PG
Pistons' Reggie Jackson: Plays effectively through neck issue2h ago
Reggie Jackson (neck) started and played 34 minutes during Sunday's 104-98 loss to the Celtics.
Although he experienced neck spasms leading up to the game, Jackson was able to take the floor, leading the team in assists and finishing second in scoring thanks to an efficient shooting performance. Jackson's production has been extremely spotty of late, as he has now finished in double-digits in scoring just six times in the last 12 games and has managed six or more assists just seven times during that span. Despite his struggles, the enigmatic guard can take a deep breath now that the trade deadline has passed and will look to produce outings such as this more consistently moving forward.
DeMarcus Cousins NO PF
Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins: Contributes double-double in loss to Thunder3h ago
DeMarcus Cousins contributed 31 points (8-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 15-15 FT) to go along with 10 rebounds and three assists across just 21 minutes during Sunday's 118-110 loss to the Thunder.
Cousins enjoyed an eventful showing in this one, as he received a technical foul for getting tangled up with Steven Adams inside the first minute and then produced at an extremely high rate before fouling out after just 21 minutes of time on the court. His transition to life in New Orleans hasn't translated to any wins in the standings yet, but Cousins continues to produce at a high level and is averaging 23.3 points, 13 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 2.7 steals and 1.3 blocks across three games with his new club.
Anthony Davis NO PF
Pelicans' Anthony Davis: Scores 38 points in loss to Thunder3h ago
Anthony Davis scored 38 points (15-28 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, four assists and one steal across 32 minutes during Sunday's 118-110 loss to the Thunder.
Although he was quiet on the glass, Davis was a force at the offensive end and was extremely effective as a scorer for the second straight game thanks to an efficient shooting performance in all facets. The arrival of DeMarcus Cousins has not affected Davis' offensive game, as he is averaging 35.3 points over three contests since the trade, but he has failed to reach double-digit rebounds in two of those contests. He remains an elite fantasy contributor, however, and should be expected to bounce back on the boards as a leading producer on the thin New Orleans Pelicans roster.
Oliver Bjorkstrand CLB RW
Blue Jackets' Oliver Bjorkstrand: Pitches in two points1h ago
Oliver Bjorkstrand collected a pair of helpers Sunday in a 5-2 win over the Rangers.
The young Dane has been productive in five games since being recalled from the AHL, posting four points and a plus-5 rating. On top of that, Bjorkstrand has fired 14 shots on goal during that span, as well, so he's not likely to be sent back down anytime soon as long as he's rolling.
Lightning's Stefan Fournier: Heads to Lightning in deal1h ago
Stefan Fournier was acquired from the Coyotes on Saturday in a deal that sent Jeremy Morin to the desert.
Fournier has been playing with the AHL Tucson Roadrunners and has two goals and two assists in 29 games. His value doesn't translate onto the score sheet -- he's a gritty checker who can do the kind of dirty work that J.T. Brown or Cedric Paquette could do.
Alexander Wennberg CLB C
Blue Jackets' Alexander Wennberg: Lights lamp twice1h ago
Alexander Wennberg found the back of the net twice in a 5-2 win over the Rangers on Sunday.
His second goal midway through the second period held up as the game-winner. With 52 points in 60 games this year, Wennberg has been exceptional in his third full NHL season, and has been especially good of late, rattling off eight points over his last five contests.
Jason Garrison TB D
Lightning's Jason Garrison: Could be moved out at deadline1h ago
Jason Garrison , who has one year left on a $4.6 million contract, could be traded by the deadline.
Garrison has a no-movement clause, which means he'll need to be protected in the expansion draft. Garrison's offensive production has slowed to a near trickle -- he has just one goal and seven points in 56 games -- so, his contract is far too high to pay a guy best suited for third pairing duty. The Bolts would be loathe to lose a young player on his account.
Cam Atkinson CLB RW
Blue Jackets' Cam Atkinson: Finds twine twice1h ago
Cam Atkinson scored two goals in a 5-2 win over the Rangers on Sunday.
The beat goes on for the diminutive sniper, who continues to build on his breakout campaign and is now up to 29 goals and 24 assists this year. In fact, Atkinson tied his career-high 53 points in this one, so it'll be fun to see how much more offensive damage he can do in the season's final quarter.
Brian Boyle TB C
Lightning's Brian Boyle: Could be traded by deadline1h ago
Brian Boyle , who becomes a UFA on July 1, has been linked to several teams in a possible trade.
He earns $2 million and has 100 playoff games to his credit, so Boyle would be a great add for a team that's headed to the postseason. The Tampa Bay Lightning appear to have thrown in the towel with Sunday's deal that sent Ben Bishop to L.A., so Boyle could be next. He has 13 goals and 22 points in 54 games this season.
Chris Archer TB SP
Rays' Chris Archer: Dominant in first Grapefruit League appearance1h ago
Chris Archer , who fired two scoreless innings in Sunday's 7-3 Grapefruit League win over the Red Sox, was very pleased with his performance, Bill Chastain and Corey Long of MLB.com report. "I felt good. I accomplished what I wanted to accomplish," Archer said. "Just out there having fun, it was really fun to be out there in the spectrum with the umpire, the fans, the batter. It was fun."
Archer closed out his outing with a 95 mph fastball that disposed of Bryce Bentz, an exclamation point on what was a dominant outing overall. The 28-year-old ace of the Tampa Bay Rays staff is looking to bounce back from a career-worst campaign in 2016, and the fact that he was immediately able to build on what have been impressive bullpen and batting practice sessions was certainly an encouraging sign. Sunday, Archer was able to keep his fastball consistently in the 93-95 mph range and threw 28 pitches overall. Archer is slated for one more start before joining Team USA for the first round of the WBC.
Danny Valencia SEA 3B
Mariners' Danny Valencia: Solid Cactus League debut Sunday1h ago
Danny Valencia went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks and two runs in Sunday's 13-2 Cactus League win over the Padres.
The veteran, expected to platoon with Dan Vogelbach at first this season, was on base early and often in Sunday's blowout win. Valencia has rightfully earned a reputation as a lefty masher in his career, but has become a better all-around hitter the last two seasons. The 32-year-old has compiled respective averages of .285 and .275 against right-handed pitching over the 2015 and 2016 campaigns, along with a combined 23 homers and 71 RBI.
Chris Heston SEA SP
Mariners' Chris Heston: Impressive in Sunday Cactus League start1h ago
Chris Heston allowed just one hit over two scoreless innings in Sunday's 13-2 Cactus League win over the Padres.
Heston is still a long shot to make the big league club coming out of spring training, but outings like Sunday's certainly help boost whatever small chance he may have. Although his more likely destination to kick off the 2017 campaign remains Triple-A Tacoma, the Seattle Mariners are expected to give him ample opportunity to state his case for a major league spot this spring.
Mark Canha OAK 1B
Athletics' Mark Canha: Smacks RBI double in Cactus League loss2h ago
Mark Canha went 1-for-2 with an RBI double and walk in Sunday's 5-3 Cactus League loss to the Angels.
Canha brought home Eric Young, Jr. and Alejandro De Aza in the third with a double to left, drawing the A's even with the Angels at 1-1 at the time. The right fielder, who'll platoon with offseason acquisition Matt Joyce this season, hit out of the two-hole Sunday and has looked strong this spring after missing the majority of 2016 with a hip injury.
Athletics' Daniel Gossett: Strong showing in Sunday start2h ago
Gossett, who was a last-minute starter after the A's decided to rearrange their pitching schedule, fired two scoreless innings in Sunday's 5-3 Cactus League loss to the Angels. He also walked two. "He impressed everybody in the organization last year, so in talking about that fifth starter, who knows?" manager Bob Melvin said. "This is a nice little feather in his camp to start a game against a division team, our opener at home."
The 24-year-old right-hander, currently the team's No. 10-ranked prospect, got the call in the wake of Sonny Gray dropping out of the WBC due to an insurance issue. Gossett went a combined 10-6 with a 2.69 ERA at Class-A Stockton, Double-Midland and Triple-A Nashville last season, while leading the organization with 151 strikeouts. The promising prospect boasts an impressive arsenal consisting of a fastball, curveball, changeup and the latest addition, a cutter. If he's unable to ultimately secure the fifth starter role, Gossett could well be a late season call-up with another impressive campaign in the minors.
Yadier Molina STL C
Cardinals' Yadier Molina: Blasts two-run double in Sunday spring training win2h ago
Yadier Molina went 2-for-2 with a single and two-run double in Sunday's 7-4 Grapefruit League win over the Marlins.
The veteran backstop, working as a DH on Sunday, drove home Eric Fryer and Aledmys Diaz in the second, giving the St. Louis Cardinals a 4-0 lead at the time. The ageless Molina will eventually leave camp to play for Team Puerto Rico in the WBC, but is expected to see a solid amount of playing time prior to departing.
Ryan Schraeder ATL T
Falcons' Ryan Schraeder: No surgery required4h 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 surgery4h 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 activities5h 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 Panthers8h 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 charges15h 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 yet1d 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).
