It was reported earlier in the week that Mozgov (eye) was doubtful for Friday after missing Wednesday's game in Atlanta, but that does not appear to be the case now. Mozgov started the first four games of the season for the Lakers, averaging 8.5 points and 6.0 rebounds while shooting 53.8 percent from the floor.
Derrick Rose Headshot

Rose suffered a sore right foot in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz, but X-rays came back negative, Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reports.

Added 10:06 am (EST)
Rose was able to return after picking up the injury in the third quarter, finishing the night with 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-3 FT), six assists and one rebound in 32 minutes. While it looks like his injury is only a minor concern, the non-contending Knicks could opt to hold him out of the second half of the back-to-back set Thursday against the Trail Blazers. Expect the Knicks to make an official call on Rose's status in the hours leading up to the 10:00 p.m. ET tip time, but if he ends up sitting out, Ron Baker and Chasson Randle would likely cover most of the minutes at point guard.
Kyle Korver Headshot

Korver (foot) provided nine points (3-9 FG, 3-8 3Pt), one rebound and one assist across 19 minutes in a 126-113 loss to the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Added 9:55 am (EST)
Korver didn't display his usual accuracy from three-point range in his return from a seven-game absence, but he should have a chance to regain a few more minutes in contests once he becomes further removed from the foot injury. Fortunately for Korver, J.R. Smith (three points on 1-of-7 shooting) was fairly unimpressive in his move to the starting five, so it appears the playing time at shooting guard could still be very much up for grabs.
Mike Dunleavy Headshot

Dunleavy (ankle) contributed nine points (3-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal across 15 minutes in a 104-100 loss to the Wizards on Wednesday.

Added 9:50 am (EST)
It was Dunleavy's first appearance since Feb. 24, as a case of right ankle synovitis has sidelined him for nearly a month. Dunleavy should be able to provide the Hawks with a three-point shooting presence off the bench when called upon, but he could be at risk of losing his rotation spot when Kent Bazemore (knee) returns to action.
Darrell Arthur Headshot

Arthur (knee) played one minute in Wednesday's 126-113 win over the Cavaliers, contributing no points, one rebound and one assist.

Added 9:46 am (EST)
Arthur was cleared to play following a four-game absence due to a sore left knee, but coach Michael Malone essentially kept him out of the rotation, as Juan Hernangomez (12 minutes) ended up seeing most of the time that would have normally fallen to him. Once Danilo Gallinari (knee) returns, it will be even more difficult for Arthur to find consistent burn off the bench, so he's not a strong hold in most deeper leagues.
Rodney Hood Headshot

Hood had three points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 108-101 win over the Knicks.

Added 8:04 am (EST)
Hood has been wildly inconsistent this season, and his per-game averages in scoring, assists, steals, and minutes have all dipped following a breakout campaign as a sophomore in 2015-16. Given the depth of the Jazz's roster, Hood isn't being relied on as heavily as he was last year, and coach Quin Snyder will likely continue trusting the veterans that make up his bench unit on nights when Hood is struggling to find a rhythm.
Raul Neto Headshot

Neto recorded 10 points (4-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and one assist in 14 minutes during Wednesday's 108-101 win over the Knicks.

Added 7:53 am (EST)
After appearing in 81 games during 2015-16, Neto has fallen out of the regular rotation as a sophomore, averaging only 8.1 minutes per night compared to 18.5 minutes per last year. However, Neto was able to post a season high in scoring on Wednesday, and the 10.8 minutes he's averaging in March is actually the most he has seen in any month this season.
Rudy Gobert Headshot

Gobert registered 35 points (13-14 FG, 9-12 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocks, one assist, and one steal in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 108-101 victory versus the Knicks.

Added 7:44 am (EST)
Gobert was incredibly efficient, following up Monday's career high in blocks (eight) with a career best in scoring. Gobert has scored in double figures during 13 of 14 appearances since the All-Star break, this after finishing with less than 10 points nine times in his first 57 games of 2016-17.
Kristaps Porzingis Headshot

Porzingis accumulated 24 points (8-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 108-101 loss to the Knicks.

Added 7:24 am (EST)
Porzingis has been solid in the last two tilts following a one-game absence due to a thigh injury. The sophomore has improved his numbers in almost every category this season, and Porzingis can be counted on across all fantasy leagues unless or until coach Jeff Hornacek decides to rest him down the stretch. The Knicks are back in action on Thursday against the Trail Blazers, and Porzingis poured in 31 points and nine boards in their last meeting.
Andre Iguodala Headshot

Iguodala (hip) is expected to play Friday night against Sacramento, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Added 7:16 am (EST)
Iguodala sat out Tuesday's rout of the Mavericks with strained left hip. His return is not insignificant while the Warriors are without Kevin Durant (knee). Iguodala has bumped up his shot-taking and scoring in nine games without KD.
Tyreke Evans Headshot

Evans (ankle) finished with 18 points (8-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while posting three rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes in Wednesday's 116-98 loss against the Bucks.

Added 3:34 am (EST)
Evans didn't show any ill effects of his ankle injury, as he was very effective from the floor, especially from long range. He missed three of the past four games due to a sore ankle, but it appears safe to get him back into the active fantasy lineup following this impressive showing.
