Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon did not participate in practice Monday. Blackmon said he is "just a little sore, nothing serious. I'm not even injured."

I am initiating players come with a "buyer beware" sticker. Justin Blackmon has this sticker firmly placed on his forehead. If you are in a dynasty league don't even think about it. Know that Blackmon's next infraction and he will be suspended a year.rnIf you are in a traditional or ppr league know this: Blackmon is suspended his first four games. The Jaguars have a bye week nine. Last year Blackmon didn't get started until week 11. Are you that desperate for a wide receiver? I see no upside. Buyer beware.ANALYST:

Devin Harris will have an x-ray on his injured right hand.

Harris played 28 minutes Thursday but struggled along with all of his teammates. J.J. Barea is in line to pick up most of Harris's minutes if this injury is serious though Raymond Felton could wind up in the rotation as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Wesley Matthews suffered a torn left Achilles tendon Thursday and will miss the rest of the season.

Arron Afflalo should see a spike in minutes, possibly higher than the 33 he averaged with the Nuggets this season. Steve Blake and C.J. McCollum should see more playing time as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Update: Wesley Matthews is having an MRI on his left leg.

Everything to this point seems to indicate Matthews's lower leg injury is serious, and the MRI only seems to confirm that suspicion. If Arron Afflalo is available in your fantasy league you should probably add him now. Analysis: Steve Pimental

Update: Wesley Matthews will not return Thursday due to a foot injury.

We probably will not know more until after the game, but early indications are the injury is quite serious. Arron Afflalo has averaged just 27.6 minutes per game since joining the Trail Blazers, but he would certainly see more playing time if Matthews is out. Steve Blake and C.J. McCollum would likely pick up some more minutes as well. Analysis: Steve Pimental

E'Twan Moore scored 19 points off the bench (9-10 FGA) and grabbed four rebounds in the Bulls 108-105 victory over the Thunder on Thursday night.

Moore had arguably his greatest game as a professional on Thursday night, as he scored 19 points off the bench and shot an unfathomable 90-percent from the field. He also hit the go-ahead three with time expiring and entrenched himself in the memories of Bulls fans forever. This game by no means renders him a legitimate fantasy option, but maybe this performance is something to build off of.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Nikola Mirotic scored 26 points (14-16 FTA), grabbed eight rebounds, and recorded two blocks in the Bulls 108-105 victory over the Thunder on Thursday night.

Mirotic did an excellent job in getting to the line on Thursday night, as he had 16 attempts and converted 14 of them from the charity stripe. His 26 points off the bench were critical to the Bulls nail-biting victory and he should be viewed as an excellent pickup option when the Bulls are shorthanded. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Joakim Noah scored four points, grabbed 12 rebounds, and recorded nine assists in the Bulls 108-105 victory over the Thunder on Thursday night.

Where Noah struggled to score on Thursday, he made up for in rebounding and assist totals. These are the types of games that Noah is capable of considering his unique skill set. When healthy, consider him one of the top tier centers in the fantasy realm. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Addison Reed (shoulder) still has not thrown from a mound this spring.

This is a bit troubling, but as of now, Reed is still on track to be ready for Opening Day. If he were to have a setback, Brad Ziegler or Oliver Perez would likely be the top choices to see save opportunities. Reed posted a 4.25 ERA and notched 32 saves in 2014. Analysis: David Kerr

Stephen Vogt (foot) said he hopes to begin playing in spring training games next week.

Vogt had foot surgery during the offseason, so the A's have been holding him out of action as a precautionary measure. Once he gets on the field, he will be eased back into action, but should be at full strength once the season starts. Analysis: David Kerr

Mike Dunleavy scored 21 points (3-6 3PA) and grabbed four rebounds in the Bulls 108-105 victory over the Thunder on Thursday night.

Dunleavy's 21 points were unexpected and for anyone who decided to purchase his services in daily leagues experienced a pretty solid payoff. Going forward, don't expect him to produce many more 20 point outings, but his consistent three point shooting is a fair expectation. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Jon Jay (wrist) took batting practice Thursday for the first time since the start of training camp.

Jay had wrist surgery this past offseason and is actually ahead of schedule in his recovery. He will be the Cardinals' starting center fielder and should be ready for Opening Day barring any setbacks. Analysis: David Kerr

Pau Gasol scored 21 points and grabbed 12 rebounds in the Bulls 108-105 victory over the Thunder on Thursday night.

Gasol had himself an impressive double-double on Thursday night, as his 21 points and 12 rebounds were critical to the Bulls gut-wrenching 108-105 victory over the Thunder. At 18 points and 12 rebounds per game, Gasol's 2014-15 campaign has been more than the Bulls and his fantasy owners could have asked for and should be remembered as one of the best veteran fantasy seasons in history.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Giants are interested in bringing back impending free-agent S Stevie Brown.

Brown missed the entire 2013 season due to a torn ACL and then struggled in his return last year. The Giants still see talent in the veteran safety and would be interested in bringing him back on a team friendly deal. Analysis: David Kerr

D.J. Augustin scored 10 points and recorded three assists off the bench on Thursday night in OKC's 108-105 loss to the Bulls.

Augustin's unimpressive 10 point, three assist outing was unfortunately the Thunder's third best performance of the night. He has been pretty solid since coming over via trade but will always be overshadowed by superstar starter Russell Westbrook. Analysis: Dom Murtha
