Suns' T.J. Warren: Scores 23 points in Sunday's loss6m ago
T.J. Warren went for 23 points (11-14 FG, 1-1 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 39 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to the Bucks.
Warren was extremely efficient, and he is averaging 20.0 points (on 67.9 percent shooting), 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.5 steals in 38.5 minutes per game during the two bouts following the All-Star break. Since P.J. Tucker was dealt to the Raptors, Warren figures to be a legitimate factor in fantasy going forward, even once his unsustainable field-goal percentages start to fall.
Jordan Clarkson LAL PG
Lakers' Jordan Clarkson: Scores 19 points in Sunday's loss20m ago
Jordan Clarkson contributed 19 points (8-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, and two assists in 27 minutes during Sunday's 119-98 loss to the Spurs.
Clarkson continues to score in double figures far more often than not, and he will perhaps serve as an ever bigger focal point of the team's second unit now that Lou Williams is no longer on the roster. In the first two games following the Williams trade, Clarkson has hoisted a combined 33 shot attempts, which is tied for his highest total in consecutive contests this season.
Khris Middleton MIL SG
Bucks' Khris Middleton: Will not play Monday vs. Cavaliers for rest22m ago
Khris Middleton will not travel with the team to Cleveland for Monday's tilt against the Cavaliers in order to rest, Justin Garcia of WTMJ reports.
Middleton started his first game of the season Sunday for the Milwaukee Bucks after recovering from a torn hamstring, providing eight points (3-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, and two assists across 28 minutes during the 100-96 victory over the Suns. Understandably, the Bucks will opt to exercise caution with Middleton, holding him out of the second half of a back to back set. The next time he'll likely see the floor will come Wednesday against the Nuggets.
Luol Deng LAL SF
Lakers' Luol Deng: Scoreless in 13 minutes during Sunday's loss30m ago
Luol Deng had zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 13 minutes during Sunday's 119-98 loss to the Spurs.
Deng has played a combined 31 minutes in the two games following the All-Star break, this after receiving less than 20 minutes only six times through his first 53 appearances this season. It appears that the Los Angeles Lakers are starting to funnel more minutes towards the younger players, and Brandon Ingram scored a career-high 22 points in 35 minutes. Therefore, Deng shouldn't be counted on for consistent fantasy production going forward. Furthermore, this was Deng's fourth scoreless showing of 2016-17, so he wasn't exactly a reliable contributor even prior to this point.
Victor Oladipo OKC SG
Thunder's Victor Oladipo: Will not play Sunday vs. Pelicans38m ago
Victor Oladipo (back) is out for Sunday's tilt against the Pelicans, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
Despite being upgraded to a game-time decision after being listed as out in the game notes, Oladipo's back spasms will ultimately cause him to be sidelined for Sunday's contest. Alex Abrines will likely pick up his second straight start and should see big minutes in a starter's role.
Thomas Robinson LAL PF
Lakers' Thomas Robinson: Swipes season-high four steals in Sunday's loss44m ago
Thomas Robinson supplied nine points (4-7 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, and four steals in 17 minutes during Sunday's 119-98 loss to the Spurs.
Robinson hadn't played in the last 11 games, but he was able to earn some court time on Sunday, albeit during a blowout defeat. While he posted a season high in takeaways and fell just shy of a double-double, Robinson has appeared in just 35 contests during 2016-17. As a result, he can likely be left on the waiver wire unless a slew of injuries strike the frontcourt.
Brian Elliott CGY G
Flames' Brian Elliott: Beats Hurricanes1h ago
Brian Elliott allowed only one goal on 35 shots in a 3-1 victory over the Hurricanes on Sunday.
Within the first five minutes of the game, Carolina scored on the power play, but Elliott shut the door from there. He stopped all 32 shots he saw at even strength. Although his overall numbers still don't look so good, at least he's been better lately. Elliott is now 4-0-1 with a .922 save percentage and a 2.20 GAA in his last five starts.
Lars Johansson CHI G
Blackhawks' Lars Johansson: Called up from minors2h ago
Lars Johansson was recalled from AHL Rockford on Sunday.
With Correy Crawford sidelined with an illness, Johansson returns to Chicago on Sunday to serve as Scott Darling's backup. The Swedish goalie hasn't seen any action at the NHL level yet this season and isn't likely to, as the Chicago Blackhawks will probably send him back to Rockford once Crawford returns to health.
Jordan Nolan LA C
Kings' Jordan Nolan: Doesn't skate Sunday2h ago
Jordan Nolan (lower body) did not skate Sunday after sustaining a lower body injury in his return to action Saturday, LA Los Angeles Kings Insider reports.
Nolan had just returned from a lengthy stay on the IR but may have suffered another injury in his return to the lineup.
Linus Ullmark BUF G
Sabres' Linus Ullmark: Recalled to big club2h ago
Linus Ullmark was called up from AHL Rochester on Sunday.
While he haven't heard anything about it yet, Ullmark's sudden recall would seem to indicate that something is going on with either Robin Lehner or Anders Nilsson, as the team called Ullmark up just before their date in Arizona on Sunday night. The 23-year-old keeper still hasn't seen any ice time for the Buffalo Sabres and isn't likely to barring a major injury to at least one of the two goalies ahead of him on the depth chart.
Adam Larsson EDM D
Oilers' Adam Larsson: Ready to return Sunday2h ago
Adam Larsson (lower body) is in the lineup for Sunday's away game against the Predators, Jack Michaels of the Edmonton Oilers Radio Network reports.
Larsson returns to the lineup after missing the previous two games with the minor ailment. He'll likely round out the third defensive pairing with Darnell Nurse, who is returning Sunday after missing 35 games. Eric Gryba and Brandon Davidson will be the resulting healthy scratches.
Brad Marchand BOS LW
Bruins' Brad Marchand: Posts third multi-point game this month2h ago
Brad Marchand scored a goal and picked up two assists in a 6-3 victory over the Stars on Sunday.
The three-point effort pushed Marchand back into the top five in scoring with 64 points this season. He's also tied for seventh in goals with 27. Marchand has been extremely hot since just before the All-Star break. Ironically, since the game against Detroit on Jan. 24 where he also earned a suspension for a questionable hit, he has 10 goals and 20 points in 13 games, and most of that damage is coming at even strength.
Rhys Hoskins PHI 1B
Phillies' Rhys Hoskins: Making good impression34m ago
Rhys Hoskins has made a positive impression on manager Pete Mackanin early in camp, Ryan Lawrence of the Philly Voice reports. "I was told he's got a good idea at the plate and he sure looks like that, he sure looks like it," Mackanin said. "He's got a nice soft approach. It looks like he's really under control. That's good to see."
Hoskins has played in all three spring training games thus far and has gone 2-for-4 with a homer and two walks. He will open the year at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, but could get a look in Philly later this year if Tommy Joseph fails to build on his 2016 season. Hoskins hit .281/.377/.566 with 38 home runs in 498 at-bats last season at Double-A Reading.
Hunter Dozier KC RF
Royals' Hunter Dozier: Dealing with minor wrist injury1h ago
Hunter Dozier said Sunday that he has been suffering from a minor left wrist issue that dates back to last August, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.
The fact that Dozier is still battling pain in his left wrist can't be something that the Kansas City Royals exactly like to hear. While the issue appears to be very minor right now, wrist injuries can often be tricky and have the potential to sap power if they intensify. Fortunately for Dozier, he'll have all of spring training to help himself get fully healthy for the regular season.
Will Smith SF RP
Giants' Will Smith: Close to throwing off flat ground1h ago
Manager Bruce Bochy said that Will Smith (elbow) is a day or two away from throwing off flat ground, CSN Bay Area reports.
Smith was experiencing elbow inflammation last week, but the MRI results came back negative and the San Francisco Giants appear to be playing it safe with their left-handed setup man. The club has already set a plan for him to throw six times during this WBC-extended spring training, so barring any setbacks, Smith should be ready for Opening Day.
Matt Cain SF SP
Giants' Matt Cain: Goes two innings in spring debut1h ago
Matt Cain gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits over two innings in his spring training debut against the Cubs on Saturday.
Cain will technically have to earn the San Francisco Giants ' fifth rotation spot this spring, but a clean bill of health and decent production should do the trick. The former All-Star has not pitched over 100 innings or had an ERA below four since 2013, but he does have experience and a massive contract working in his favor. Just because the Giants are considering giving him a rotation spot doesn't mean fantasy owners should be following suit, at least until he shows some semblance of his former self during the regular season.
George Kontos SF RP
Giants' George Kontos: Picks up win Saturday1h ago
George Kontos pitched a clean sixth inning and picked up the win in Saturday's spring training win over the Cubs.
The San Francisco Giants brought Kontos back on a one-year deal to serve as a middle reliever in 2017. He has posted ERAs of 2.33 and 2.53 in 2015 and 2016 respectively, but his strikeout rate has been under 6.0 K/9 in both seasons, which isn't desirable for a ratio-boosting middle reliever in even deep formats.
Denard Span SF CF
Giants' Denard Span: Collects hit in Cactus League debut1h ago
Denard Span batted leadoff and went 1-for-2 in his spring training debut against the Cubs on Saturday.
Span returned to his usual spot atop the San Francisco Giants ' lineup, a place he will likely spend the majority of the season against right-handed pitchers. The soon-to-be 33-year-old had a down year in 2016, slashing .266/.331/.381 in 637 plate appearances. He did hit a career-high 11 homers, but his speed took a hit, stealing just 12 bags in 19 attempts. Span will be a in position to score a good amount of runs atop the Giants' lineup, but he will need to have a bounce-back year in terms of batting average and steals before he can be considered a standard league fantasy asset again.
Mario Addison CAR LB
Panthers' Mario Addison: Signs with Panthers2h 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 charges9h 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 yet23h 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).
Nick Mangold NYJ C
Jets' Nick Mangold: Released by Jets1d ago
Nick Mangold (ankle) has been released by the New York Jets , Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Mangold ended the 2016 on injured reserve due to an ankle injury after appearing in just eight games. In his 11-year career with the Jets, he started 164 out of 176 games leading to seven Pro Bowl selections.
Junior Galette WAS DE
Redskins' Junior Galette: Signs with Redskins1d ago
Junior Galette will return to the Washington Redskins on a one-year contract, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.
Although he has been with the Redskins the past two seasons, Galette has yet to appear in a game with the team. He ruptured his left Achilles prior to the 2015 season and his right this past July. According to The Washington Post, he and GM Scot McCloughan reportedly laid out plans to remain in Washington on a one-year deal for 2017 previously, so this news comes as no surprise.
Allen Barbre PHI T
Eagles' Allen Barbre: Will be ready for 2017 season2d ago
Allen Barbre (hamstring) should be completely healed in advance of the 2017 season, CSN Philly reports.
Barbre sat out last season's regular season finale after aggravating a hamstring injury in Week 16. While the injury is not expected to persist into the 2017 campaign, it still isn't clear how much of the Philadelphia Eagles ' offseason program he could miss.
