Spin: It will be the first time since Burks was in his "teens" that the shoulder will be at full strength. The shoulder has been a concern since before Utah originally drafted him. "I had a really bad shoulder," he said. Burks added that he couldn't lift his arm over his shoulder, and he admitted that he wasn't healthy all season. Burks is uncertain if he'll be ready for training camp, but the good news is he should be at full strength whenever recovered.
Spin: There was really no way Varejao was going to return this year given the severity of his injury, but it's nice to know he hasn't suffered any setbacks in his recovery. We'll continue to monitor Varejao closely in his recovery, and hopefully he's able to join his teammates in training camp next season.
Spin: McRoberts is traveling with the Heat to work with the team's training staff, but it doesn't sound like he's close to resuming on-court work. A return during the playoffs is feasible but fantasy owners can't expect any production in Miami's final nine regular-season games.
Spin: He is going through practice right now and is still awaiting medical clearance to get into game action. George could be cleared any day now, but there's still little incentive to adding him because the Pacers will likely limit his minutes. He can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Spin: He was expected to miss tonight and a game over the weekend, so this is a surprise. Richardson hasn't played well at all and is still not worth grabbing in almost any league. His return will take some minutes away from Jerami Grant, Hollis Thompson and Robert Covington.
Spin: He's ready to roll after missing two games due to a back issue. Favors was able to go through shootaround this morning and he should be in the 22-28 minute range. Trevor Booker can be dropped in most leagues.
Spin: MKG will likely be out for another week, so there are no surprises here. At this point in the season, MKG can be dropped in most leagues and the Hornets won' be in a rush to bring him back if they continue to fall out of the hunt for a playoff berth. Jeff Taylor will likely draw another start, but he is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Spin: With Boozer now out, the Lakers could rest one more big man in their rotation. It was Boozer and Ed Davis yesterday, so maybe they go that route again. Robert Sacre is warming up and we'll pass along more info as we receive it.
Spin: Ellis' calf may not be 100 percent healthy but he's one of the league's toughest players and it's no surprise to see him in the starting lineup. He'll give the No. 7 seed Mavericks whatever he has tonight, as they try to fend off the No. 8 seed Thunder, and he's safe to activate in all leagues.
Spin: Motiejunas may be able to return before the regular-season ends, but with no clear return date in sight, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Josh Smith will continue to get all the run he can handle for however long Motiejunas and Terrence Jones (lung) are sidelined.
Spin: Neal has not played since March 22, and remains without a clear timetable to return. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Expect Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger to continue to log heavy minutes for a Minnesota team that has been decimated by injuries.
Spin: Beverley will be in a cast for the next 10 weeks and will need four months of recovery. While the Rockets have Jason Terry, Pablo Prigioni, and Nick Johnson to fill in for Beverley, none are a fantasy option outside of the deepest of leagues. James Harden will have to carry even more of the load for the Rockets for the rest of the season and will have a good chance to bolster his case for MVP.
Spin: Lowry has already said that he won't rush back from injury, so it's safe to drop him in most leagues. Greivis Vasquez will continue to draw the start and is worth a look if you need help in assists and 3-pointers, while DeMar DeRozan and Lou Williams will continue to receive a boost in value with Lowry on the shelf.
Spin: This is not a surprise despite the Wolves saying Martin could return. There's also some hope he'll play on Friday, but we have our doubts. Lorenzo Brown and Zach LaVine will get most of the backcourt minutes tonight.
Spin: According to those same sources, Shved loves playing for Knicks head coach Derek Fisher and is open to returning to the Knicks when he becomes and unrestricted free agent after the summer. Shved played some of the best basketball of his career with the Knicks in March and 16.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.4 blocks, and 1.9 three-pointers during the month. The 26-year-old can be dropped in all fantasy leagues as there's a good chance he won't play again this season, but he's a player fantasy owners should keep in mind for the 2015-16 season.
Spin: This confirms earlier reports and there's no clear return date for KG, though he did join the Wolves during shootaround on Wednesday. Adreian Payne, Anthony Bennett and Justin Hamilton will continue to hold down the frontcourt with KG, Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Gorgui Dieng (concussion) all out of commission.
Spin: Rubio was doubtful to play and at this point we're wondering why the Wolves don't shut him down. He's missed nine of Minnesota's past 10 games and there's no clear indication when he might return, leaving Zach LaVine with a clear path to extended minutes in the backcourt.
Spin: Earlier today we asked why the Wolves haven't ruled him out for the season, so at least there is some certainty in this situation. Pekovic can be dropped in all re-draft leagues. Justin Hamilton will get the start at center tonight.
Spin: This is great to see after a very scary injury put him in the hospital last month. The Rockets have yet to decide on Dwight Howard, but Jones should still be able to get 16-24 minutes tonight in his first game back. The Rockets have a back-to-back, so Jones should be owned in all leagues with two games in the next two days.
Spin: Monroe is slowly ramping up his activity and could return as soon as this weekend, according to SVG, though a return for the final five games would have him in uniform on Wednesday, Apr. 8. Anyone struggling to win this week should look for safer options, but this at least gives some hope to owners holding Monroe until the bitter end.
Spin: According to the earlier timetable, the earliest Ibaka would have returned would be on the regular season finale. With the new timetable, he's still looking at a best-case scenario playing on Apr. 10 for the last four games of the season. OKC said they were going to be very careful with Kevin Durant (foot), so one would think they'd do the same with Ibaka. He can remain on the wire in almost all leagues.
Spin: He's currently in the second week of his 2-4 week timetable, so he's inching his way closer to a return. However, with season averages of just 7.5 points and 1.0 three-pointer per game, it's safe to leave Scott on the wire in all leagues.
Spin: Temple has been sidelined since March 9, has not been able to practice, and remains without a clear timetable to return. We're going to consider him very doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers, and he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Spin: That tentative return date would have Crawford missing at least the next five games, ruling him out for all of this week, so he can safely remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes remain the primary beneficiaries with Crawford out.
Spin: While Jose would not rule out the possibility of him making a return this season, he admitted that he doesn't like his chances. There's really no reason for Calderon to risk a setback playing for the worst team in basketball, so we don't expect to see him back on the floor this season. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Spin: While Fournier wants to return, he has been out since Feb. 25 and the rebuilding Magic don't have much incentive to rush him back. He's a player to keep an eye on in deeper fantasy leagues for 2015-16, but the 22-year-old can safely be left on waivers for this season.
Spin: This practically rules him out for the rest of the week, and head coach Byron Scott also said that Young would need at least another week of conditioning after that. There is a good chance that Young doesn't play again this season, and the Lakers have no reason to jeopardize his health. Leave Young on the wire.
Ronnie Price had right elbow surgery to remove bone spurs and will be out for 6-8 weeks.
Spin: He is out for the season. Price has been dealing with his nagging elbow injury since at least Jan. 14, but he should be ready for next year. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this coming summer.
Spin: Anderson was able to go through a full-court scrimmage on Tuesday so his knee must have responded well. Head coach Monty Williams said that Anderson won't have an official minutes restriction, but he did day that he would ease him back into action. Anderson is by no means a must-own player with the season winding down, but he is worth a flier if you need help in 3-pointers.
Spin: We wish Durant the best in his recovery, and you can click the link below to see the full post for yourself. Durant, once seemingly invisible, has for the first time in his career had his season derailed by injuries, and there are no guarantees he's ready to go by the start of training camp next season. He's going to be a risky first-round selection next year, which is a very weird sentence to read/write.
News: Bosh of the Miami Heat will be evaluated by team doctors later this month and is on schedule to resume ''full basketball activities'' in September. The team made the announcement Monday night, just before Bosh was scheduled to meet with reporters and discuss how he's recovering from having blood clots on one of his lungs.
Spin: The Heat say Bosh may begin exercising later this month, ''with plans to start strength training next month.'' Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says the team has been looking forward to seeing the All-Star forward, noting ''how fortunate, how privileged we are, to be involved in this game.''
Spin: He is still out for the season, but getting in some sort of activity bodes well for his offseason. With Sullinger out, it's been Tyler Zeller stepping up the most with Kelly Olynyk and Brandon Bass having good games here and there.
Spin: Carmelo's initial timetable was set at 4-6 months in February, so it sounds like Phil is hopeful Melo will be able to meet the early end of that timetable. We'll continue to track Carmelo's progress every step of the way, and although it's early, all signs are pointing towards Anthony being ready to go by next season.
Spin: "During the Dallas game this past year, that's when I really pulled something and the specialist said that I had torn something," Collison said. "And then ... he realized that I have been damaging this for like a very, very long time even going back to my Indiana days." The Kings won't try to rush Collison back this season but he should be fine for the start of the 2015-16 campaign. In his absence, Ray McCallum will continue to start with Andre Miller backing him up.
Spin: This is a small step in what will be a long recovery for Jennings. Hopefully he's ready to go by next year's training camp, and we'll continue to track his progress closely. If Detroit is able to retain Reggie Jackson this offseason, it'll be interesting to see if he and Jennings can play together.
Spin: Bryant added that he "could" play beyond the 2015-16 season, but right now the future Hall-of-Famer expects it to be his last. He could begin running in 10 days and should be healthy for the start of next season, though his age and recent injury history will make him a very risky option on draft day.
Spin: He obviously won't play again this season, but this is fantastic news and hopefully this means we will see him back out on the court soon. Teletovic is flying home to New York on Wednesday, and we will continue to track his progress every step of the way. Expect Cory Jefferson, Bojan Bogdanovic and Brook Lopez to see some extra minutes for the foreseeable future.
Spin: While Williams continues to hint at Holiday being close to a return, he still has not been able to go through a full practice, so it's extremely unlikely he'll be ready to go for Wednesday's game against the Lakers. He'll also be with a minutes limit upon his return, so this is a situation that should be avoided in standard leagues.
