Donatas Motiejunas (back) is not expected to play on Friday.

Motiejunas has been hot lately, but considering he did not go through shootaround earlier today, don't expect him out on the court against the Timberwolves. Josh Smith and Terrence Jones will likely pick up the minutes that Motiejunas leaves behind at the power forward spot.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Richard Jefferson (back) will not play Friday against the Spurs.

Jefferson is a shell of the player he once was, so don't even consider him an option in any fantasy format whether he plays or not. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Mason Plumlee is in the Nets starting lineup on Friday.

Plumlee is a solid contributor, and if there were ever a time to start him or purchase him in daily leagues, today is the day as he will be in the Nets starting lineup. Don't be surprised if he churns out a double-double on Friday night.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Tim Hardaway Jr. (wrist) will not play Friday against the Celtics.

Hardaway has been garbage this season anyway, so pay no mind to his absence. Get guard production from other areas of the waiver wire. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Mo Williams (knee) will play Friday against the Wizards.

As he has been playing through this knee issue, Williams' shooting percentage has been dreadfully low (23-percent). Considering this, do exactly what the Hornets are doing: play him with caution. Williams is a tealented guard, but be reasonable with your expectations, as he has struggled with his shot while dealing with the injury.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Cody Zeller (shoulder) will not play Friday against the Wizards.

When Zeller is ever healthy, he will likely replace Marvin Williams in the starting lineup. However, this is no indication that he should be regarded as a must own in fantasy leagues, as he holds just about as much fantasy value as wet towel.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Evan Fournier (hip) will not play Friday against the Pistons.

Fournier is nothing special and shouldn't be missed by any fantasy owners that are actually still in the playoffs. Reports are that he will be ready come April Fools Day, but who knows if that's all just a joke. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Bradley Beal (ankle) remains a game-time decision Friday.

This year for Beal has been a bit of a disappointment, but if he is healthy, he is a must start considering his wealth of talent. Also this year, he is shooting at an impressive 42-percent from downtown, so there is reason to believe that at some point down the stretch his game should all click together.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Kris Humphries (groin) will not play Friday against the Hornets.

Even when Humphries plays, he is not one that should be considered a legitimate fantasy option unless he is in the starting lineup. In that case, Humphries should be considered in daily formats.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Rockets recall Clint Capela from the D-League.

Capela, who's appeared in six games for the Rockets since being taken 25th overall in the 2014 draft, has yet to score a single NBA point. Needless to say, he is not to be utilized in any fantasy format. Analysis: Brad Costilo

Terrence Jones (lung) rode a stationary bicycle Friday for the first time since the injury.

Jones was initially ruled out for only three games (which would have had him returning tonight) after suffering a collapsed lung, but clearly that estimate was far too optimistic. It will most likely be at least a few more games until Jones is able to return to action. Analysis: Brad Costilo

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
