Description: Wizards point guard John Wall led Washington nealy had a triple-double with 25 points and 12 assists in the loss to the Rockets on Sunday.

Description: Rockets forward Josh Smith will start Friday night against Minnesota.
Insight: Terrence Jones and Donatas Montiejunas are both out, paving way for Smith to enter the starting lineup. He should see an increase in value.
Dwyane Wade, G, MIA3/27/2015 6:48:00 PM
Description: Heat guard Dwyane Wade (knee) will start Friday against the Hawks.
Insight: He is back in the lineup after missing Wednesday's contest. Activate him ASAP.
Bradley Beal, SG, WAS3/27/2015 6:39:00 PM
Description: Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal (ankle) will start Friday against the Hornets.
Insight: This is great news as Beal was questionable coming in. Get him back into your lineups immediately.
Kyle Lowry, G, TOR3/27/2015 4:37:00 PM
Description: Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (back) will miss Friday's game against the Lakers.
Insight: Lowry has stated that he will not rush back, so without a firm timetable, Greivis Vasquez and Lou Williams will continue to have increased value.
Jrue Holiday, G, NOP3/27/2015 4:35:00 PM
Description: Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday (leg) is still without a timetable to return.
Insight: With just 11 regular season games left, owners can drop Holiday in all re-draft leagues. Tyreke Evans will continue to run point for New Orleans.
Hassan Whiteside, C, MIA3/27/2015 4:32:00 PM
Description: Heat center Hassan Whiteside (hand) has been downgraded to out for Friday's contest against Atlanta.
Insight: This is just bad luck for Whiteside and his owners. Still consider him day-to-day, as well will list him as questionable for Sunday's game versus Detroit.
Kevin Durant, F, OKC3/27/2015 3:04:00 PM
Description: The news continued to get worse for Thunder star small forward Kevin Durant, who will now undergo bone graft surgery on his right foot.
Insight: He is now officially out for the season, and will need four-to-six months to recover. That would put him on track to enter training camp healthy, but that is a major question at this point in time. Russell Westbrook's value has just risen more, if that is even possible.
Gordon Hayward, G/F, UTA3/27/2015 2:34:00 PM
Description: Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward (shoulder) is probable for Friday's game against Denver. Update: He made it through the morning shootaround without any problems.
Insight: Make sure he's back in your lineup. Hayward is averaging 19.6 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 4.2 apg, 1.4 spg and 1.6 threes per night. He's missed the past two games.
Kevin Martin, G, MIN3/27/2015 2:32:00 PM
Description: Timberwolves guard Kevin Martin (hamstring) did not play on Wednesday night and has been downgraded to out for Friday night as well.
Insight: He's dealing with a strained left hamstring and says he should be ready in about a week. Chase Budinger will likely start in Martin's place, and should make for an intriguing daily option after posting 22 points against the Lakers.
Bradley Beal, SG, WAS3/27/2015 11:28:00 AM
Description: Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal left Wednesday's game with an ankle injury and is questionable for Friday night versus Charlotte.
Insight: The team said it didn't seem too bad after the game and he didn't have his foot in a walking boot or on crutches, so perhaps there is a chance he returns, but he's likely to be a game-time decision at best.
Gordon Hayward, G/F, UTA3/27/2015 11:26:00 AM
Description: Jazz small forward Gordon Hayward (shoulder) is probable for Friday's game against Denver.
Insight: make sure he's back in your lineup. Hayward is averaging 19.6 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 4.2 apg, 1.4 spg and 1.6 threes per night. He's missed the past two games.
Nicolas Batum, F, POR3/27/2015 11:24:00 AM

Insight: Batum is a box score filler when healthy, averaging 9.4 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 4.8 apg, 1.1 spg. Dorell Wright would benefit the most if Batum can't run.
Brandon Knight, G, PHO3/27/2015 11:23:00 AM
Description: Suns guard Brandon Knight is questionable for Friday's game against Portland.
Insight: Knight has missed the past seven games due to a sprained left ankle, but could be ready to go Friday night. He'll be a game-time decision.

Description: Suns guard Eric Bledsoe missed Thursday's practice due to illness, but is listed as probable for Friday night's game against Portland.
