Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins: Could face one-game suspension31m ago
DeMarcus Cousins could face a one-game suspension if the technical foul he was assessed in Sunday's game against Oklahoma City is not rescinded.
Less than a minute into Sunday's contest, Cousins got tangled up with Oklahoma City's Steven Adams and was given his 18th technical foul of the season. Per league rules, Cousins will face a one-game suspension unless the technical is rescinded by the league office. If it's upheld, Cousins will be forced to sit out Wednesday's game against the Pistons but would return to availability Friday against the Spurs. The NBA's technical foul policy dictates that after a player picks up his 16th technical of the season, he'll receive a one-game ban for every two subsequent technicals.
LeBron James CLE SF
Cavaliers' LeBron James: Will play Monday vs. Bucks31m ago
LeBron James (illness) has been cleared to play in Monday's game against the Bucks, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.
James dealt with an illness over the weekend, which kept him out of Saturday's matchup with the Bulls. However, the few extra days off allowed him the chance to make a full recovery and he's officially been given the green light to take the floor Monday. Look for James to take on his usual role in the starting lineup and he's not expected to be on any sort of minutes restrictions, so fantasy owners can go ahead and activate him. The return of James should send Richard Jefferson back to a minor role off the bench.
Kristaps Porzingis NY PF
Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis: Ruled out Monday vs. Raptors37m ago
Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Raptors, Al Iannazzone of Newsday Sports reports.
Porzingis was considered doubtful earlier Monday, so this latest update comes as no surprise. He's fully expected to be back for Wednesday's tilt with the Magic, but look for another update on his status following Tuesday's practice session. Lance Thomas figures to pick up another start at power forward after logging 37 minutes Saturday, while Kyle O'Quinn could see some added run off the bench as well.
Avery Bradley BOS SG
Celtics' Avery Bradley: Could make return Monday39m ago
Avery Bradley (Achilles) could make his return to action Monday against the Hawks, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
While the Boston Celtics are yet to comment on Bradley's availability, the guard is not listed on the injury report, despite missing 22 of the team's last 23 games with a strained right Achilles. Coach Brad Stevens said Sunday that Bradley could return "any day now," so it's certainly possible that the Texas product could play Monday, but it's still best to wait for official confirmation before deploying Bradley in a DFS lineup.
Andrew Bogut PHI C
Andrew Bogut: Finalizes buyout with Sixers45m ago
Andrew Bogut has agreed to a buyout with the Sixers and will become a free agent, Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports.
Bogut was traded from the Mavericks to the 76ers just prior to the trade deadline Thursday, but he was never expected to remain in Philadelphia and Monday's buyout was merely a formality. While there's a chance he ends up elsewhere, Bogut is currently expected to sign with the Cavaliers, which could be finalized at some point later this week. If he ends up with the Cavaliers as expected, he'd likely come off the bench behind Tristan Thompson at center and would provide a much-needed upgrade to their second unit.
Jose Calderon LAL PG
Lakers' Jose Calderon: Officially waived by Lakers1h ago
Jose Calderon was officially waived by the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
The writing has been on the wall for a while, as 35-year-old has not been a part of the Lakers' regular rotation for the better part of the last three months. Calderon, who has appeared in 24 games this season, is widely expected to sign with the Warriors, who have an open spot on their roster after parting ways with 10-day signee Briante Weber. Calderon is not likely to be a major factor for Golden State, but he'll bring veteran depth to the point guard position in the event of an injury down the stretch.
Mike Condon OTT G
Senators' Mike Condon: Starting Monday39m ago
Mike Condon will start between the pipes Monday against the Lightning, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Condon will give it a go in the Ottawa Senators ' second contest of a back-to-back set Monday after sitting each of the last three. He will look to put behind him a game against the Jets in which he allowed three goals on just 20 shots, and will get a decent shot at doing so Monday against a Lightning club that dished out goaltender Ben Bishop on Sunday.
Alex Burrows VAN LW
Senators' Alex Burrows: Sent to Ottawa1h ago
Alex Burrows was traded to Ottawa in exchange for prospect Jonathan Dahlen on Monday, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
The Ottawa Senators have decided to deal a potential future piece for a veteran presence in an attempt to win now. Burrows decided to waive his no-trade cluase for the deal and is expected to ink a two-year contract extension with his new club. The 35-year-old winger has tallied just 20 points through 55 games this season, but the move to a more potent offensive club should provide a brighter outlook on his fantasy prospects the rest of the way. It seems highly unlikely he will make it to Tampa in time for Monday's game, making Thursday against the Avalanche the most likely date of his debut with his new organization.
Greg Pateryn MON D
Stars' Greg Pateryn: Traded to Stars1h ago
Greg Pateryn was sent to the Dallas Stars in addition to a fourth-round pick in exchange for the Stars' Jordie Benn on Monday, Arpon Basu of LNH.com reports.
Pateryn hasn't received much of a shot with the Habs, but could receive a larger run with a Stars club that's just on the fringes of playoff contention. Despite the move, it seems unlikely the 26-year-old blueliner will gain fantasy relevance this season given his six points over 24 games at the top level. Pateryn had grown unhappy late in his tenure with Montreal, so perhaps a change of scenery will reinvigorate him.
Jordie Benn DAL D
Canadiens' Jordie Benn: Dealt to Habs1h ago
Jordie Benn was traded from the Stars to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Greg Pateryn and a 2017 fourth-round pick Monday, Arpon Basu of LNH.com reports.
The deal splits up the Benn brothers for the first time since Jordie debuted in the NHL in 2011-12. With the Stars struggling, the club decided to deal for a younger blueliner in the hopes he develops and an additional draft pick. Meanwhile, Benn joins the division-leading Canadiens, who are in desperate need of some assistance defensively in front of elite netminder Carey Price. The biggest boost to the blueliner's value will likely come in the form of his rating, but Benn doesn't contribute enough offensively to warrant ownership in the majority of fantasy leagues.
Marcus Sorensen SJ RW
Sharks' Marcus Sorensen: Recalled by big club1h ago
Marcus Sorensen was recalled from the team's AHL San Jose affiliate Monday, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Sorensen's recall doesn't guarantee he will draw into the lineup Tuesday with 12 other forwards healthy, but it likely won't make a difference either way. The young winger has averaged just 8:22 of ice time in his first two contests with the San Jose Sharks , tallying one goal in the two contests. With Joonas Donskoi (upper body) nearing a return, Sorenson's second cup of coffee at the top level may not last long.
Joonas Donskoi SJ RW
Sharks' Joonas Donskoi: Out again Tuesday2h ago
Joonas Donskoi (upper body) has been officially ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, Curtis Pashelka of the Bay Area News Group reports.
CSN Bay Area's Kevin Kurz reports that Donskoi is making significant progress and nearing a return to the lineup, but is not quite ready yet. As a result, the team recalled Marcus Sorensen from its AHL San Jose affiliate to provide some depth up front. Donskoi has been sidelined since Jan. 24 because of the issue, but it sounds as though that may be ending soon. His next chance to play comes Thursday against Vancouver. However, his lack of consistent offensive contributions limits his fantasy upside.
Ryan Garton TB RP
Rays' Ryan Garton: Returns from illness19m ago
Ryan Garton returned from his illness and pitched 1.2 innings Monday, allowing one run with one strikeout in the win over the Phillies.
The right-hander only allowed one hit in his return outing, although that happened to be a solo shot from Maikel Franco. He posted a 4.35 ERA across 39.1 innings in his rookie campaign last season, and likely will serve as a middle reliever for the Tampa Bay Rays next season.
Jemile Weeks CHC 2B
Cubs' Jemile Weeks: Exits Monday with injury1h ago
Jemile Weeks left the game after he injured himself jumping to catch a throw down, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.
He was able to walk off the field slowly, but otherwise the severity of the injury is not yet known. Although he was already a long shot to make the Chicago Cubs ' deep roster, this certainly doesn't help Weeks. The team hasn't released anything on the injury, but more should be known after the game.
Freddy Galvis PHI SS
Phillies' Freddy Galvis: Back in action1h ago
Freddy Galvis (groin) started at shortstop Monday and went 0-for-2 with a strikeout.
Galvis got a day off Sunday after returning from a mild groin injury on Saturday. He's hitless with two strikeouts through his first two games this spring.
Jesmuel Valentin PHI 2B
Phillies' Jesmuel Valentin: Returns to action Monday1h ago
Jesmuel Valentin (shoulder) saw his first action of the spring Monday, going 0-for-1 after taking over for Cesar Hernandez at second base.
Valentin had been sidelined while he recovered from a separated shoulder that he suffered earlier this month while playing in the Caribbean Series. He is expected to open the year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Dilson Herrera CIN 2B
Reds' Dilson Herrera: Plays catch Monday1h ago
Dilson Herrera (shoulder) resumed his throwing program Monday by playing light catch, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports.
The shoulder inflammation has kept Herrera from being able to play the field, but the soon-to-be 23-year-old has DH'd twice in four games this spring for Cincinnati, which is reassuring. It still remains unclear when he'll return to the field, but the Cincinnati Reds seem to be playing it safe with Herrera, who is sitting out the WBC because of the issue. "I'm going to keep DHing him, and we're going to make sure that when he's throwing, he's throwing at 100 percent before I put him at second base," manager Bryan Price said.
Reid Brignac HOU SS
Astros' Reid Brignac: Trying out switch-hititng2h ago
Reid Brignac is experimenting with switch-hitting this spring in order to give himself a better shot of seeing more playing time, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
After slashing a woeful .207/.207/.276 in 29 plate appearances with the Braves and an unspectacular performance in 424 plate appearances with Triple-A Gwinnett, Brignac is changing things up in order to make himself more of a threat as a hitter. The 31-year-old journeyman will be hoping that, by becoming a switch-hitter, his manager will be less inclined to pinch hit for him later in games in order to get a favorable righty-lefty matchup. While it is a promising idea, Brignac will have to prove this spring that he can actually hack it from both sides of the plate.
Chiefs' Laurent Duvernay-Tardif: Finalizing lucrative extension1h ago
Duvernay-Tardif is expected to sign a five-year, $41.25 million extension with the Kansas City Chiefs , NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
Duvernay-Tardif, a 2014 sixth-round pick from McGill University in Canada, has mightily impressed since entering the league as a virtually unknown prospect, starting 27 of the 30 games he's played over the past two seasons. As his lucrative extension suggests, the Montreal native figures to be a pillar of Kansas City's offensive line going forward.
Le'Veon Bell PIT RB
Steelers' Le'Veon Bell: Receives franchise tag from Steelers2h ago
Le'Veon Bell (groin) received the franchise tag from the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Adam Schefter ESPN reports.
By placing the franchise tag on Bell the Steelers have secured his place with the team through at least the 2017 season. It remains unclear if Bell will sign the franchise tag, which will guarantee him roughly $12 million for the year, or if he'll hold out for a multi-year extension. When healthy, Bell has been one of the best backs in the NFL. He totaled 1,268 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on 261 carries in 2016, and he added an additional 616 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 75 catches, all while appearing in just 12 regular season games. However, he's missed time in the past due to suspensions, knee injuries, and his current groin injury, which could make the Steelers hesitant to agree to a high-priced, long-term extension.
Tony Romo DAL QB
Cowboys' Tony Romo: Release expected soon2h ago
Tony Romo is likely to be released by the Dallas Cowboys within the next two weeks, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Romo's future with the Cowboys has been the subject of much discussion since quarterback Dak Prescott emerged as Dallas' long-term answer at the position over the course of his sensational rookie campaign. In supporting Prescott from the sidelines following his mid-season return from a back injury, Romo continued to do well by the Cowboys, who are expected to reward him by allowing him to dictate his future team in return. That opportunity will most likely come by Romo being released, which is a process that could be accelerated by talks held at this week's scouting combine. Although exactly where Romo will play in 2017 remains uncertain, it seems news on that front could surface sooner than later.
Colts' Fahn Cooper: Signs with Colts4h ago
Fahn Cooper signed a contract with the Indianapolis Colts on Monday.
Cooper spent the 2016 season on the 49ers' practice squad after being selected by San Francisco in the fifth round of the 2016 draft. He'll be looking to secure a role as a backup lineman and special teams player in 2017.
Kawann Short CAR DT
Panthers' Kawann Short: Gets franchise tag from Panthers4h ago
Kawann Short has received the Carolina Panthers ' franchise tag, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Short and the Panthers will now have until July 15 to come to terms on a long-term extension. Otherwise, he'll play next season under a one-year tender worth the average of the top-5 defensive-tackle salaries from last season. At 28 years old, Short has recorded 55 tackles in consecutive seasons, and although his sack total dropped from 11 to six this past term, he remains one of the league's best interior defensive linemen, thus warranting his franchise tag designation.
Eric Rogers SF WR
49ers' Eric Rogers: Recovering well from torn ACL4h ago
Eric Rogers (knee) is progressing through rehab and expects to be ready for offseason team activities, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.
Rogers tore his ACL early in training camp last season, but he's been recovering steadily. A return, at least in part, for offseason workouts means he'll likely be a full go come training camp in 2017, where he'll look to hold onto a roster spot as a depth receiver and special teams player.
