Ty Lawson Headshot

Lawson will draw the start next to Darren Collison for Thursday's contest against the Nuggets, James Ham of CSN California reports.

With Arron Afflalo (hamstring) unavailable for Thursday's game, Lawson will draw the unexpected start next to Darren Collison. Lawson has missed the past four games due to a left leg strain, but is assumed to be fully healthy heading into the game. He's averaged 10.3 points on 47.3 percent shooting, 5.5 assists, and 1.1 steals across 23.1 minutes per game in his last 12 appearances, but could see a bigger workload moving forward with the Kings shaking up their roster before the deadline.

Andre Drummond Headshot

Drummond logged 12 points (6-10 FG), and 13 rebounds across 26 minutes in Thursday's 114-108 overtime win over the hornets Thursday.

Drummond sat the entire fourth quarter and the overtime period on Thursday, which is one explanation for his anemic stat line. Marcus Morris and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope took over the game and left little opportunity for Drummond.While he can wake up with monster stat lines, he hasn't showed up of late.

Noah Vonleh Headshot

Vonleh started at power forward and scored seven points (3-3 FG, 12- FT) and added four rebounds and one block in 16 minutes during Thursday's 112-103 win over the Magic.

Vonleh started alongside the newly acquired Jusuf Nurkic. Despite the start, he played pretty close to his season-average 18.1 minutes. He seems likely to continue having a similar role to the one he held before the All-Star break.

Daniel Hudson Headshot

Hudson will serve as Pittsburgh's closer on days Tony Watson is unable to close, CBS Pittsburgh reports.

Pirates GM Neal Huntington announced the team's pecking order for saves, listing Watson first and then Hudson and Felipe Rivero. Huntington typically doesn't permit his relievers to pitch three straight days, giving Hudson the chance to potentially close after Watson has thrown in back-to-back calendar days. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Pirates move Watson (who will become a free agent after 2017) at the trade deadline, freeing up Hudson to close in the second half of the season.
10:40 pm (EST)
Mason Plumlee Headshot

Plumlee will come off the bench for Thursday's tilt against the Kings.

Plumlee got the spot start in the Nuggets' last game before the All-Star break with the team only having eight available players. However, now that the team is at full strength, minus Roy Hibbert who was just acquired in a trade, Plumlee will assume a bench role. He likely won't hit the 34 minutes that he saw in his first game with the team, but should still be a focal part of the offense, as the Nuggets like to give the ball to their big men in the high post and have them facilitate.
10:40 pm (EST)
Paul LaDue Headshot

LaDue (upper body) skated at Thursday's practice after being held out of action Tuesday, LA Kings Insider reportd.

LaDue doesn't warrant much fantasy attention but gives the Kings a solid two-way presence when he's able to work his way back into the lineup.
10:35 pm (EST)
Tobias Harris Headshot

Harris tallied 25 points (9-17 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one block across 37 minutes in Thursday's 114-108 victory over the Hornets.

It's hard to ignore Harris' output over the past few games, as he's averaging 15.6 points and 4.6 rebounds over the past 5 matchups. He's one of the league's premier sixth men and worth a flier pickup if you need help at the point.
10:31 pm (EST)
Jared Sullinger Headshot

Sullinger is expected to be waived by the Suns after being acquired via trade, Doug Haller of AZCentral Sports reports.

The 24-year-old failed to secure a spot in the Raptors' rotation after recovering from a fractured right foot that cost him the first two and a half months of the season. Because of that, the Suns have opted not to keep him on the roster after acquiring him, apparently valuing their current young big men over Sullinger, who has yet to prove he's healthy enough to be a rotational player this season.
10:30 pm (EST)
Jordan Nolan Headshot

Nolan (lower body) could be nearing a return after participating in each of the last two morning skates, LA Kings Insider reports.

Nolan has been sidelined since February 1 and figures to fill a depth role upon his return to the Kings lineup. He has just eight points (four goals, four assists) in 41 games this season.
10:30 pm (EST)
Adrian Kempe Headshot

Kempe skated on the team's fourth line at practice Thursday, LA Kings Insider reports.

Kempe skated on the team's top line in his first game following his promotion but those days appear to be over for now. He has an assist in four games since being recalled from the AHL.
