Kevin Durant    F  Warriors

 

 

Kevin Durant's (knee) progress has the Warriors hopeful he can return before end of regular season, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. KD is doing some on-court work these days, but he still doesn't have a target date. He was expected to miss four weeks, which means his original target window will be at the end of this month. The Warriors would likely ease KD back in and perhaps do so in the first round of the postseason. If you're going to stash him, there's a decent chance he won't make much of an impact upon his return.

Joel Embiid    F/C  76ers

 

 

Joel Embiid (knee) is "very likely" to have surgery, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. This confirms a previous report of Embiid likely to have surgery from earlier this month. Embiid has a small tear in his meniscus and it will keep the rookie out for the rest of the season. If he does have surgery, it will likely cost him about two months in his offseason program. Richaun Holmes will continue to thrive and has made a case he deserves minutes next year.

Timofey Mozgov    C  Lakers

 

 

Timofey Mozgov left Wednesday practice early with a left ankle sprain. He is going to be questionable to play on Friday. Mozgov is not in the rotation anyway and the Lakers have gone with Thomas Robinson off the bench. Of course, Ivica Zubac will be getting heavy run the rest of the way.

Tony Allen    G/F  Grizzlies

 

 

Tony Allen (knee) went through treatment at Wednesday's practice in San Antonio and is likely questionable Thursday against the Spurs. He did not play on Tuesday for his first DNP since the break. The Grizzlies started Wayne Selden for 16 minutes on Tuesday while Andrew Harrison and Troy Daniels also picked up some minutes. This is a situation to avoid in most fantasy leagues.
