Luol Deng (Achilles) will play on Tuesday.
Deng is coming off a double-double of 18 points and 10 boards in 41 minutes of action in Sunday's home loss to the Suns, but is facing a Pelicans team tonight that has improved their defense against opposing small forwards of late having allowed the sixth fewest fantasy points to the position over the last 15 days. So, if you have any concerns his minutes will be limited tonight then fading him in your daily league contests may be wise, but definitely get him in your season long lineups.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
