    Caleb Martin Sat Mar 25 6:50pm

    Miami Heat forward Caleb Martin (knee) is available for Saturday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. Martin appears to be fine for this game despite dealing with left knee soreness. He should resume his normal role as the backup forward to Kevin Love. Martin has been playing well lately. providing 11th-round value over the last two weeks. That being said, Martin is well worth a look as a streaming option.

    Trae Young Sat Mar 25 6:40pm

    Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young has been ejected from Saturday's game against the Indiana Pacers. Young was not happy with an offensive foul on him. He responded by throwing the ball at an official. That resulted in Young getting tossed out of Saturday's contest. Dejounte Murray will move into the starting five for at least the rest of this game. However, it wouldn't be shocking if Young was suspended because of his actions. That being said, AJ Griffin, Saddiq Bey, and Murray would all be asked to take on bigger roles, assuming Young misses more than Saturday's game.

    Chris Duarte Sat Mar 25 6:40pm

    Indiana Pacers forward Chris Duarte (ankle) has been ruled out for the rest of Saturday's game against the Atlanta Hawks. He only managed to play five minutes before exiting the game due to left ankle soreness. This could very well be an issue that sidelines Duarte longer than just this game. That being said, Jordan Nwora could be an interesting player to look at in fantasy formats. Also, T.J. McConnell and Andrew Nembhard could see more minutes, assuming Duarte misses more time.

    Kyle Lowry Sat Mar 25 6:30pm

    Miami Heat guard Kyle Lowry (knee) is available for Saturday's game against the Brooklyn Nets. The veteran guard has been cleared despite being considered questionable on Friday. Lowry should resume his normal role as the backup guard to Gabe Vincent. The Heat have been using Lowry off the bench ever since he returned from injury. The 37-year-old doesn't normally play a ton of minutes off the bench, which limits his fantasy value. Honestly, Vincent might be the better streaming option between the two right now.

    Damian Lillard Sat Mar 25 6:30pm

    Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard (calf) was held out of Friday's game against the Chicago Bulls. Now, the organization is leaning towards shutting down Lillard for the rest of the season. The Blazers are currently three games out of the play-in tournament with nine games remaining on the schedule. It sounds like the team would rather miss the playoffs than risk Lillard suffering a long term injury. The void of Lillard would be basically impossible for the Blazers to fill. Ryan Arcidiacono and Shaedon Sharpe would likely see a significant boost in value, assuming Lillard gets shut down. Fantasy managers will have to check back for another update on Lillard.

    Khris Middleton Sat Mar 25 6:20pm

    Milwaukee Bucks forward Khris Middleton (knee) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Saturday's game against the Denver Nuggets. Middleton was held out of Friday's game for rest purposes. Now, the 31-year-old is expected to resume his normal role in the rotation on Saturday. His return will mean that Pat Connaughton will return to his normal role, which means he won't have as much streaming appeal.

    De'Aaron Fox Sat Mar 25 6:20pm

    Sacramento Kings guard De'Aaron Fox (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz. The star guard was forced to exit early during Friday's game due to right hamstring soreness. That being said, it's uncertain if the team wants to rush Fox back to the court or give him another night off to rest. His absence would mean that Davion Mitchell would move into the starting five. He'd be worth a look as a streaming option if Fox is out. Also, Matthew Dellavedova would see more minutes, but isn't worth looking at as a streaming choice.

    Myles Turner Sat Mar 25 4:40pm

    Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner (back) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's showdown with Atlanta. He had been questionable with back soreness, so fantasy managers had a feeling this could happen. As a result, Isaiah Jackson, who has averaged 11.9 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 2.9 blocks in seven starts this season, becomes a must-start option in all fantasy setups. However, don't forget about Jalen Smith, who should also benefit without Turner on the floor.

    De'Andre Hunter Sat Mar 25 4:30pm

    Atlanta Hawks forward De'Andre Hunter (knee) won't play against Indiana. He has a left knee contusion, and it's apparently severe enough to keep him off the floor on Saturday night. Nevertheless, Saddiq Bey is the favorite to take Hunter's spot in the rotation, although AJ Griffin should see enough work to jeopardize his fantasy potential. However, with Trae Young (calf) cleared to suit up, both Bey and Griffin are shaky fantasy options.

    Trae Young Sat Mar 25 4:30pm

    Atlanta Hawks guard Trae Young (calf) will play on Saturday night against the Pacers. There was some doubt he wouldn't be healthy enough to suit up. However, he's good to go. Young has averaged 24.0 points, 10.5 assists, and shot 56.3% from deep in two meetings with Indiana this season, so that should tell fantasy managers all they need to know.

    James Harden Sat Mar 25 4:20pm

    Philadelphia 76ers guard James Harden (Achilles) is questionable for Saturday's road meeting in Phoenix. He's been dealing with left Achilles soreness, recently holding him out of Philly's previous two contests. But considering Harden will be instrumental in a potential deep postseason push, keeping him healthy is the No. 1 priority. Nevertheless, if the former MVP can't suit up, De'Anthony Melton should remain in the starting lineup. The 24-year-old has averaged 11.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.8 steals in 54 starts this season. However, those numbers could increase if Joel Embiid (calf), who is also questionable, doesn't play, either.

    Joel Embiid Sat Mar 25 4:10pm

    Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (calf) is questionable for Saturday's meeting in Phoenix. The MVP candidate carried the same injury designation before Friday's loss to Golden State, although he was declared available late in the evening. However, considering the team has championship aspirations, keeping him healthy is the top priority. With James Harden (Achilles) questionable as well, Tyrese Maxey, Tobias Harris, and De'Anthony Melton may be the primary scoring options for Philly on Saturday night. Yet, their stock will drop if either Harden or Embiid is in the lineup.

    Collin Sexton Sat Mar 25 4:10pm

    Utah Jazz guard Collin Sexton (hamstring) remains out ahead of Saturday's clash with Sacramento. The 24-year-old has missed over a month because of a hamstring strain. While he is apparently trending in the right direction regarding his rehab efforts, he's still not ready to return. Of course, with Utah on the verge of not making the playoffs, there's a chance Sexton won't be back this season. However, only time will tell. In the meantime, Talen Horton-Tucker should remain a top ball-handler, which is good news for fantasy managers.

    Lauri Markkanen Sat Mar 25 4:00pm

    Utah Jazz forward Lauri Markkanen (hand) won't play on Saturday against Sacramento. Markkanen has a hand contusion, an injury that also held him out of Friday's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Considering Utah is a long shot at making the postseason, the team will likely remain cautious with the big man for the remainder of the year. With Jordan Clarkson (hand), Rudy Gay (back), and Collin Sexton (hamstring) sidelined as well, Talen Horton-Tucker, Walker Kessler, Simone Fontecchio, and Ochai Agbaji should continue to benefit the most on the fantasy end.

    Anthony Davis Sat Mar 25 10:30am

    Los Angeles Lakers forward/center Anthony Davis led all scorers with 37 points and crashed the glass for 15 rebounds in Friday's 116-111 win over the Thunder. He missed only six of his 21 shot attempts and finished 7-for-11 at the charity stripe while wrapping things up with one assist and one steal. Davis has secured five double-doubles in his past six appearances, averaging 26.2 points and 13.0 rebounds over that span. He continues to play a pivotal role as the Lakers try to lock down a playoff position.

    Zach LaVine Sat Mar 25 10:30am

    Chicago Bulls guard/forward Zach LaVine was an outstanding 6-for-9 from downtown and scored a game-high 33 points in Friday's 124-96 victory over Portland. He finished with 12-for-20 shooting overall, capping off his line with four rebounds, eight assists and one block. The 28-year-old benefited from DeMar DeRozan's (quadriceps) absence on Friday, but LaVine has been lighting it up throughout the month, averaging 30.2 points on 52.3 percent shooting. He's also upped his assists numbers to 4.9 as the Bulls desperately try to secure a play-in spot.

    Joel Embiid Sat Mar 25 10:20am

    Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid did MVP things in Friday's matchup against Golden State, going for 46 points, nine rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block. He shot 13-for-23 from the field and 19-for-22 at the foul line, but despite Embiid's monster effort, the Sixers ended up dropping the game 120-112. Embiid had exited the previous game with a calf problem, so there was obviously uncertainty surrounding his health, but the big man proved that he is perfectly fine. Philadelphia has another game scheduled for Saturday against Phoenix, and Embiid should crush it again if he doesn't get rested.

    Luka Doncic Sat Mar 25 10:20am

    Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic was two assists short of a triple-double Friday against Charlotte, racking up 34 points and 10 rebounds in a 117-109 loss. Kyrie Irving added 18 points with nine rebounds and seven assists, but the Mavs fell to 3-7 in games where the team's star backcourt has played together. Doncic also had a 30-point double-double in his first game back from injury Thursday versus Golden State, but he shot much better this time, hitting 12-for-23 from the field with two makes from downtown. He picked up a block on the defensive end but also amassed five turnovers in 37 minutes. Luka will get his no matter what each night, but the state of things from the team's perspective is currently worrying for the Mavericks fans, as Dallas fell to 11th in the Western Conference Friday.

    Luke Kennard Sat Mar 25 10:10am

    Memphis Grizzlies guard/forward Luke Kennard had a spectacular game against Houston on Friday, setting a new franchise record with 10 made three-pointers. He became the second player in league history to amass 30 points in a game with only makes from downtown, shooting 10-for-11. Kennard's line in a huge 151-114 blowout win also included three assists and one steal. The 26-year-old obviously won't repeat this performance anytime soon, but Kennard has actually become a viable fantasy option in recent weeks, averaging 15.7 points with 4.0 rebounds and 2.3 assists.

    Keldon Johnson Sat Mar 25 10:00am

    San Antonio Spurs forward Keldon Johnson returned from a two-game absence Friday against Washington with 30 points and 10 rebounds. He filled up the box score with 11-for-17 shooting, hitting three times from deep and adding four assists. The 23-year-old now boasts four double-doubles for the season and half of them have come in his last two appearances. Johnson has looked superb in his recent outings, averaging 26.0 points in his past five appearances, but he hasn't been playing regularly for a while now, with the Spurs keeping him on the sidelines due to injury management.
