    • Jordan Loyd TOR PG
      Raptors' Jordan Loyd: Called up from G League
      2m ago

      Loyd was recalled from the G League on Friday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

      Loyd has seen 12 total minutes this month across three appearances, racking up four points. It seems unlikely he'll garner significant run Friday against the Spurs.

      Raptors' Malcolm Miller: Recalled from G League
      3m ago

      Miller was recalled from the G League on Friday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

      Miller signed a multi-year deal with the Raptors before the All-Star break, though he has yet to play in the NBA, spending all of his time in the G League. Even if he takes the court Friday against the Spurs, it likely wouldn't be for a significant stretch of time.

      George King: Leads team to victory
      1h ago

      King posted 28 points (9-17 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in the 130-126 win Wednesday over South Bay.

      King led the way for a Northern Arizona squad that saw multiple two-ways players (De'Anthony Melton and Jawun Evans being the others) soak up significant minutes with the team. King continues to see time with Northern Arizona despite a fairly substantial need at guard for the NBA version of the Suns, but that could change in the coming weeks as the NBA season winds to its conclusion.

      Heat's Goran Dragic: Questionable vs. Pistons
      1h ago

      Dragic (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Pistons, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

      Dragic went from being available but unlikely to play in Thursday's game against the 76ers to doubtful and ultimately was not made active for the contest. However, it does appear Dragic is very close to making his return after a lengthy absence. Look for an update at some point Saturday on whether Dragic has been deemed fit to play or not.

      Heat's James Johnson: Doubtful Saturday
      1h ago

      Johnson has been diagnosed with a slight left AC sprain and is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

      Johnson exited Thursday's game against the Sixers due to the shoulder injury, and it's possible he misses extended time. Assuming he's sidelined Saturday, Derrick Jones and Kelly Olynyk figure to see extra run.

      76ers' Amir Johnson: Will play in G League Friday
      2h ago

      Johnson will be sent down to the G League for playing time during the Delaware Blue Coats' game Friday, but he'll be called back up in time for Saturday's NBA game against the Trail Blazers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

      Johnson himself approached the organization about playing in the G League for some extra run, and the Sixers granted his request. Johnson hasn't appeared in a game since Jan. 26 and, with Joel Embiid out for about a week, Johnson likely wants to stay ready in case he's needed.

      Timberwolves' Karl-Anthony Towns: Questionable for Friday
      6h ago

      Towns was involved in a car accident Thursday and did not participate in shootaround. He is questionable for Friday's game against the Knicks, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

      Towns got in the accident on his way to the airport Thursday, and while he did manage to get to New York via commercial flight, he still may not be 100 percent. Expect Towns to be a game-time decision Friday and for more details regarding his status to be released throughout the day. Should Towns be held out of Friday's game, Taj Gibson would likely step in and start at center alongside Dario Saric.

    • Clint Capela HOU C
      Rockets' Clint Capela: Double-doubles in return
      12h ago

      Capela finished with 12 points (6-9 FG), 11 rebounds, and one block in 33 minutes during Thursday's 111-106 loss to the Lakers.

      Capela made his return from thumb surgery Thursday, ending the night with 12 points and 11 rebounds. He was certainly not at his best but played 33 minutes, appearing untroubled by the injury. He will almost certainly begin to trend up quite quickly and needs to back on a roster in all formats.

    • DeMarcus Cousins GS C
      Warriors' DeMarcus Cousins: Double-doubles in Thursday's win
      12h ago

      Cousins tallied 17 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, and one block in 27 minutes during Thursday's 125-123 victory over Sacramento.

      Cousins put up 17 points and 10 rebounds in Thursday's win, seeing 27 minutes of court time. His minutes' restriction has apparently been lifted, however, he was somewhat limited in this one. The production was solid enough here but he will likely be better moving forward and those owners who stashed him are beginning to see the rewards.

    • Boban Marjanovic PHI C
      76ers' Boban Marjanovic: Double-doubles in spot start
      18h ago

      Marjanovic totaled 19 points (6-7 FG, 7-10 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and a block in 27 minutes Thursday against the Heat.

      Marjanovic drew his first start as a 76er with Joel Embiid (knee) out of the mix, and he impressed in a 106-102 victory. Marjanovic secured his first double-double since Feb. 2 and was efficient with his shot throughout the evening (85.7 percent from the field). Embiid will remain out of the lineup for at least a week, so expect Marjanovic to continue to start for the time being.

    • Al Horford BOS C
      Celtics' Al Horford: Inefficient but fills up stat sheet
      18h ago

      Horford produced 21 points (8-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 17 rebounds, five assists, three blocks, and two steals in 37 minutes during Thursday's 98-97 loss to the Bucks.

      Horford struggled with his shot but delivered a monster stat line, contributing in every category while amassing season highs in rebounds and minutes. The 32-year-old big man shouldn't be expected to log heavy minutes on a nightly basis, but the 31.0 minutes Horford is averaging through eight February contests is more than he has seen in any prior month here in 2018-19.

    • Deandre Ayton PHO C
      Suns' Deandre Ayton: Near double-double in loss
      19h ago

      Ayton posted 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and a steal over 35 minutes in the Suns' loss to the Cavaliers on Thursday.

      Ayton narrowly missed a double-double in Thursday's loss, scoring his fewest points in his last six games and attempting his fewest shots in his last seven games. It was a disappointing night by Ayton's recent standards, as he had averaged 17.8 points and 10.0 rebounds in his last six contests, but the number-one pick in the 2018 draft will have better games to come.

      Rockets' Kenneth Faried: Solid effort in backup role
      12h ago

      Faried totaled 13 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 18 minutes during Thursday's 111-106 loss to the Lakers.

      Faried moved to the bench with Clint Capela back in the starting lineup, ending the night with 13 points and six rebounds. He spent time at both the four and five and might be able to maintain some backend standard league value. If there is a hot free-agent available then dropping Faried is certainly not the worst idea but owners who are unsure could hold onto him to see how things play out moving forward.

    • Nemanja Bjelica SAC PF
      Kings' Nemanja Bjelica: Out of starting five, rotation
      12h ago

      Bjelica (coach's decision) failed to see any action in Thursday's 125-123 loss to the Warriors.

      Bogdan Bogdanovic moved into the starting five on the while Harrison Barnes shifted over to power forward on the top unit, resulting in Bjelica heading to the bench for the first time since December. There was some thought that coach Dave Joerger might have tweaked the starting five to create a better matchup versus Golden State, but Joerger revealed after the contest that he would stick with the same lineup moving forward. If that's the case, Bjelica will likely find himself out of the rotation entirely in most games, as the Kings have little incentive to reduce the playing time for reserve rookie big men Marvin Bagley and Harry Giles.

    • Marvin Bagley III SAC PF
      Kings' Marvin Bagley: Big night in narrow loss
      12h ago

      Bagley totaled 28 points (8-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 11-14 FT), 14 rebounds, and one steal in 34 minutes during Thursday's 125-123 loss to Golden State.

      Bagley played a team-high 34 minutes despite continuing to come off the bench, ending with 28 points and 14 rebounds. Nemanja Bjelica fell out of the rotation here and Bagley could be in line for a nice boost in production moving forward.

    • Nikola Mirotic MIL PF
      Bucks' Nikola Mirotic: Plays 14 minutes in Milwaukee debut
      17h ago

      Mirotic managed eight points (3-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt) and three rebounds in 14 minutes during Thursday's 98-97 win over the Celtics.

      Mirotic saw his first action since Jan. 23, making his Bucks debut after missing nearly a month of games with a calf strain. The 28-year-old forward shouldn't be expected to maintain the per-game averages he was producing with the Pelicans now that he's operating in a reserve role on a contending team with a deep roster. Still, he could be worth holding onto in most formats in case he ends up stealing most or all of Ersan Ilyasova's minutes.

    • Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL PF
      Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Dominant in Thursday's win
      17h ago

      Antetokounmpo accumulated 30 points (11-19 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 13 rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and one steal in 37 minutes during Thursday's 98-97 win over the Celtics.

      Antetokounmpo had been listed as probable due to knee soreness. Nevertheless, he was ultimately able to give it a go and proved to be his usual dominant self in the narrow victory. The 24-year-old MVP frontrunner could be a candidate to receive the occasional night off down the stretch of the regular season. Still, he remains one of the top options across all formats.

      King led the way for a Northern Arizona squad that saw multiple two-ways players (De'Anthony Melton and Jawun Evans being the others) soak up significant minutes with the team. King continues to see time with Northern Arizona despite a fairly substantial need at guard for the NBA version of the Suns, but that could change in the coming weeks as the NBA season winds to its conclusion.

      Celtics' Gordon Hayward: Status uncertain for Friday

      Hayward (ankle) participated in Friday's practice and will be re-evaluated on Saturday prior to the team's game against the Bulls.

      Head coach Brad Stevens was encouraged by what he saw from Hayward during Friday's practice, so it looks like there is a real chance he could return after just a single-game absence. The Celtics, however, also likely won't be in any rush to bring Hayward back if he isn't 100 percent. Look for an official update on Hayward to come following shootaround Saturday morning.

      Doncic's spot on the injury report is a very surprising one given that this is the Mavericks' first game since the All-Star break, so it's unclear exactly when the rookie suffered the injury. It looks like Doncic is headed towards being a game-time decision, so look for Dallas to provide an update on his status once tip-off draws closer.

      Lee (ankle) dressed for Thursday's game against the Kings but didn't see any minutes in the Warriors' 125-123 victory.

      Lee, one of the Warriors' two-way players, hasn't been included in the rotation all season, so it's not surprising he wasn't summoned from the bench in a tight affair. His availability is probably the more notable takeaway, as Lee had been tending to a left ankle injury earlier this month before returning to action Feb. 10 with the G League's Santa Cruz Warriors. Lee will likely head back to the G League in short order and see most of his minutes with the affiliate moving forward.

      This news should be taken with a grain of salt, as head coach Brett Brown said Wednesday that he does not expect Smith to play in the NBA this season. He'll likely go through some of the lighter portions of the team's practice Friday before potentially being on the bench for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers.

      Rivers (elbow) finished with five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), one rebound and one steal in 22 minutes off the bench Thursday in the Rockets' 111-106 loss to the Lakers.

      Rivers led the Rockets reserves in playing time, but as per usual, it didn't mean much with James Harden and Chris Paul dominating the usage out of the backcourt. Since shifting to the second unit in late January following Paul's return from injury, Rivers has predictably seen his marginal fantasy value disintegrate. Over his last nine games, he's averaging 8.6 points, 1.8 assists, 1.4 triples and 1.4 rebounds in 25.0 minutes per contest while shooting 39.4 percent from the field.
