The Thunder announce that Kevin Durant (foot) will have season-ending surgery and will be back to basketball activities in 4-6 months.

At this point, it's no surprise to hear that Durant won't be able to return to action this season. The reigning MVP is expected to make a full recovery in time to return for the start of the 2015-16 season. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Doug McDermott (back) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game.

McDermott, who's missed the last two games due to his back soreness, isn't someone who warrants any attention in fantasy basketball (averaging 3.1 points and 1.2 rebounds per game). Analysis: Brad Costilo

Chris Kaman (shoulder) is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Suns.

Kaman has missed the last three games since spraining his shoulder against the Magic on 3/20, but is expected to play tonight against the Suns. That being said, Kaman isn't producing enough (8.7 points and 6.6 rebounds per game) to be considered for your fantasy lineup. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Eric Bledsoe is feeling better after from a stomach virus on Wednesday and will play Friday.

It appears that Bledsoe is completely over the stomach virus that caused him to sit out of practice yesterday, and he will be the starting Point Guard this evening. Bledsoe is having a very solid March, averaging 18.0 points, 6.0 assists, and 5.9 rebounds per game during the month. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Brandon Knight (ankle) is a game-time decision for Friday's game against Portland.

Knight, who's missed the last seven games due to his sprained ankle, was expected to play on Wednesday until he was ruled out minutes before game time. Expect the Suns coaching staff to wait until just before game-time to make the decision as to whether or not Knight, and his 17.2 points per game, can return to action. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Gordon Hayward participated in shoot around and is listed as probable for Friday night's game.

It looks like Hayward, and his 19.6 points, 4.2 assists, and 4.9 rebounds per game, will be returning to action tonight after missing two games with a grade 1 AC sprain in his left shoulder. While it's unlikely that you have a better option for tonight than Hayward on your bench in season-long formats, it would make sense to avoid spending the money on him in DFS formats until he shows that he's 100% healthy. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Steven Adams (elbow) went through all of practice and will play on Saturday.

Adams left Wednesday's game with the injury after just 22 minutes and was held out of practice Thursday to give him some much-needed rest. His participation Friday is encouraging and it looks as if he is a full-go for Saturday against the Jazz. Analysis: Howard Bender

Thunder coach Scott Brooks said he will release an update on Kevin Durant later this afternoon.

After experiencing a setback in his recovery from yet another foot surgery, Durant was removed from all basketball activities last week and shut down indefinitely. This announcement is likely to be the one that says he is officially out for the rest of the season. Analysis: Howard Bender

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose will likely be cleared for contact next week.

Rose still has a little ways to go in his recovery, but if he does get cleared for contact next week, he could be back on the floor as early as next weekend if everything goes well. The Bulls want to get him some time on the court before the season ends, but won't won't push too hard as they want to ensure his health for the playoffs. Analysis: Howard Bender

Patrick Beverley (wrist) will not play on Friday.

After learning he suffered a torn ligament in his wrist, Beverley was told that he would be out for a minimum of 7-to-10 days and then be re-evaluated then. It is very possible that the Rockets shut him down for the rest of the regular season. Analysis: Howard Bender

Richard Jefferson (back spasms) is going to try and play Friday night.

Jefferson left Tuesday's game with back spasms but the condition wasn't expected to be serious. He will give it a go Friday, but you're probably not going to want to rely on him at this point. Wait until he's back to full health and there aren't any potential playing-time concerns. Analysis: Howard Bender

J.J. Barea (left ankle) hopes to return on Sunday at Indiana, but he has to see how his ankle improves.

Barea has missed the last two games with the injury and is considered day-to-day. While he hopes to come back Sunday, he'll be re-evaluated during the morning shootaround and then again in pre-game warm-ups before he gets the green light. Devin Harris should continue to see the extra minutes. Analysis: Howard Bender

Jeff Teague (ankle) will not play on Friday.

According to coach Mike Budenholzer, Teague's ankle was just a little tender but nothing too serious. With the playoff spot locked up, the Hawks are going to just play it safe with all of their starters. Dennis Schroder will get the start. Analysis: Howard Bender

Aron Baynes (ankle) will not play Friday.

Baynes will miss his third-straight game after suffering an ankle injury Sunday. Consider him day-to-day while Matt Bonner and Tiago Splitter see the extra time. Analysis: Howard Bender
