Aaron Rodgers has officially been ruled out for the Packers in Sunday's game vs. the Falcons.

I picture those of you holding out hope on Rodgers as being like the 26 year old who still puts his teeth underneath the pillow at night hoping for $1 to appear. ANALYST: Jeff Mans

Zach LaVine scored 17 points with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in the T’Wolves 110-88 loss to the Pelicans.

LaVine is excelling in the starting lineup, averaging 16.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 2.0 three-pointers over the past five games. As long as Ricky Rubio is sidelined LaVine is worthy of being started in all formats given his ability to score as well as contribute with a handful of assists and rebounds. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Adreian Payne registered a double-double on Sunday, scoring 14 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and two steals in the T’Wolves 110-88 loss to the Pelicans.

Payne notched his third double-double since being acquired by the Timberwolves in early February. For the Timberwolves Payne is averaging 7.8 points and 6.1 rebounds per game but when given starter minutes is a double-double threat. There is no real daily league value in Payne given his inconsistencies and hes really only worth starting in deep standard leagues. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Andrew Wiggins scored a team high 20 points with six rebounds and two assists in the T’Wolves 110-88 loss to the Pelicans on Sunday.

Wiggins once again had to going on Sunday as the likely NBA Rookie of the Year is averaging 22.6 points, 4.8 rebounds and 2.6 assists over the past five games. For the season the No.1 overall pick in this seasons draft is averaging 16.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game for the Timberwolves. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Tyreke Evans had a quiet game on Sunday, scoring nine points with three rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in the Pelicans 110-88 win over the T’Wolves.

Evans is coming off two major performances against the Rockets and Kings which makes Sundays performance a big letdown. Evans only played 23 minutes which is likely due to the blowout nature of the contest and thus his low production total. Evans owners should just chalk this up to a quiet game and expect him to produce near his seasonal averages in the Pelicans next start. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Omer Asik scored 15 points with six rebounds and one assist in the Pelicans 110-88 win over the T’Wolves on Sunday.

Asik has limited fantasy upside being known more for his rebounding than scoring. His 15 point output is likely his ceiling while the six rebounds are below is 10 rebounds per game average. Asik is only worth starting in deep fantasy leagues given his one category production. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Anthony Davis filled the stat sheet on Sunday, scoring a game high 28 points with nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in the Pelicans 110-88 win over the T’Wolves.

A healthy Anthony Davis ranks among the games elite and over the past four games he has not disappointed, averaging 25.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 3.0 blocks and 2.0 steals per game. His shoulder injury has plagued him all season long and seems to be a constant threat to put him on the shelf but as long as hes healthy going into the game he is a MUST start. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.

Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day. Analysis: Spencer Silva

Wesley Johnson scored 17 points with five rebounds, three assists and one block in the Lakers 107-99 loss to the Nets.

It hasn't been a great season for Johnson who many figured would have benefited from Kobe Bryants season ending injury only to see him struggle to find his shot for the majority of the year. Johnson is averaging just 9.6 points per game this season and carries no real fantasy relevance outside of the deepest standard leagues. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Jordan Clarkson filled the stat sheet on Sunday, scoring 18 points with six rebounds and seven assists in the Lakers 107-99 loss to the Nets.

Clarkson continues to excel for the Lakers as he averages, 18.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.0 steals over the past five games. Clarkson has earned fantasy value in all formats, including daily leagues where he takes plenty of shots and is capable of filling the stat sheet. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Jordan Hill registered a double-double on Sunday, scoring a team high 22 points with 16 rebounds, one assist and one block in the Lakers 107-99 loss to the Nets.

Hill had been scratched from the Lakers lineup in each of the last three games which made Sundays performance maybe one of the most shocking of the season. Hills 16 rebounds are a season high for him as he averages 12.3 points and 8.0 rebounds per game this season. Hill came off the bench to start but his performance on Sunday should at least earn him some playing time in the Lakers next game. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Deron Williams flirted with a double-double on Sunday, scoring 13 points with nine assists, one rebound and three steals in the Nets 107-99 win over the Lakers.

Deron rebounded from an awful outing against the Cavs on Friday to fall an assist shy of his third double-double over the past five games. During this stretch Williams is averaging 11.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 8.8 assists and 1.4 steals per game, averages that include his five point showing against the Cavs. Now healthy and in the starting lineup Williams is worth fantasy considerations in daily leagues as a low end option given his ability to fill up the stat sheet and should be a must start in all standard leagues given how shallow the position is. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Brook Lopez registered a double-double on Sunday, scoring a game high 30 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and four blocks in the Nets 107-99 win over the Lakers.

Another dominating performance from Lopez who should be in the discussion as one of the best centers since coming out of the all-star break. Over the last five games Lopez is averaging 28.2 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.6 blocks per game and should be considered a must start in all fantasy formats. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Joe Johnson filled the stat sheet on Sunday, scoring 18 points with eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals in the Nets 107-99 win over the Lakers.

Two straight solid games for Johnson after struggling a bit earlier in the week. Over the past five games Johnson is averaging 12.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.4 three-pointers per game and while his point production is a bit below his season average he has proven time and time again this season more than capable of putting up a big night like he did on Sunday. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Neither DeMarcus Cousins nor Rudy Gay is on the injury report for Monday night's game vs. Memphis.

This is excellent news since both players have been listed as at least probable in most of the team's games of late. George Karl has suggested he could rest his star players at some point, and Boogie has out-and-out told the media he could use a few days off before playoffs roll around. Keep checking the lineups everyday to make sure neither gets a DNP-CP.  Analysis: Spencer Silva

Joe Maddon wants Kris Bryant to get more reps in the outfield.

The spring blitzkrieg for Bryant continues, and heading into Monday he's hitting .459 with nine home runs in only 37 at-bats. GM Theo Epstein mentioned in an interview that he wants to give Mike Olt a long look at third base, but that's probably just a BS excuse to give Kris Bryant some reps in left field and demote him for two weeks for that extra year of team control. If anything, Javy Baez could move to third base long term and Bryant to the outfield.  Analysis: Spencer Silva
