Malik Beasley    G  Nuggets



The Nuggets have sent Malik Beasley down for a D-League stint. He's appeared in just 19 games for the Nuggets this season, so he'll get some much-needed experience in the D-League.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist    F  Hornets

Meyers Leonard    F/C  Trail Blazers



Meyers Leonard’s right hip has been in so much pain recently he said he hasn’t been able to sleep at night. He also has two herniated discs in his back, so he said it's almost like playing on one leg."It’s a very bizarre feeling to be playing the highest level of basketball while feeling like I have one leg,’’ Leonard said Wednesday. "It’s frustrating to say the least.’’ He actually had an MRI to reveal the damage, but didn't go into detail. It sounds like he'll play through it, but he doesn't have much fantasy value.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist    F  Hornets



Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (right ankle strain) will play against the Magic on Wednesday. He was listed as probable and did have an MRI, but everything came back clean. MKG's minutes are slightly down this month, which was somewhat surprising with Frank Kaminsky missing time in March. Kidd-Gilchrist has been racking up the defensive stats to make him a solid player to use in all fantasy leagues.

Cameron Payne    G  Bulls



The Bulls have recalled Cameron Payne (foot) from the D-League. It's unclear if Payne will be available to play for Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons, but if he does get on the court, it will likely just be for limited minutes. Payne isn't a viable target in most settings.

Sean Kilpatrick    G  Nets



Kilpatrick (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Suns.

Dion Waiters    G  Heat



Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play on Thursday against the Raptors. He's coming along just fine and the team may not give him an MRI this week. As of Wednesday, he doesn't have an MRI scheduled, so maybe Waiters is more day-to-day. Josh Richardson is a solid add in standard leagues and dropped 14 points on Tuesday.

Jeremy Lin    G  Nets



Lin (ankle) is officially listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Suns, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
