Hoffman (lower body) is in the lineup for Sunday's road matchup with Panthers, Bruce Garrioch of Postmedia reports.
Hoffman took line rushes and is poised to return to the lineup after a two-game absence. He is slated to be on Ottawa's top line alongside Zack Smith and Kyle Turris. Hoffman posted a goal, an assist, and a plus-4 rating in his last five games before getting hurt, so he'll look to keep up the all-around efficiency Sunday.
Monroe managed 14 points (5-13 FG, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, and two blocks in 34 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 win against the Suns.
Monroe struggled against a stingy Jazz frontcout on Friday, but bounced back with a strong effort versus the lowly Suns. Monroe appeared to be a shell of his former self over the first couple months of 2016-17, but he has been quite solid during January and February. As long as the Bucks remain relevant in the race for a playoff spot, expect Monroe to continue receiving plenty of minutes off the bench behind rookie Thon Maker.
Williams totaled 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-3 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists, three steals, and one block in 34 minutes during Sunday's 100-96 loss to the Bucks.
Williams was solid in the first game back from the All-Star break on Friday, but Sunday's showing was easily the best performance of his career. Williams set career highs in scoring, assists, steals and minutes played, matched his career high in rebounding, and now has four double-doubles in 25 appearances during 2016-17. Given how many young players are on the Suns' roster, it's probably unrealistic to expect Williams to see such heavy minutes on a regular basis. Nevertheless, the 24-year-old forward has proven capable of contributing when given the opportunity, so keep an eye out for him in case this ends up becoming the new norm.
Lehner won't suit up for Sunday's game in Arizona as a precaution after he took two hits to the head during Saturday's contest against the Avalanche, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
It's not immediately clear if the injury will keep Lehner out long term, but the term "precaution" seems to imply that it won't. Anders Nilsson will start Sunday night, with recent call-up Linus Ullmark serving as the backup.
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.
