FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Updated: Chris Paul's return to the lineup may be imminent.  After missing the past 18 games, Paul is expected to play Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers, according to Head Coach Doc Rivers. Prior to the Clippers practice Saturday, Rivers said there was a “50-50” chance Paul would suit up against Philadelphia, but following the workout he re-assessed the situation.  "He looked great [in practice]," Rivers said. "We plan on playing him."

Nolan Arenado says his sore wrist "isn't a big deal" and he expects to be back in the lineup Tuesday.

Arenado has been one of the best players in baseball during the first two weeks of the season, slashing .311/.380/.644 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 10 games. The former top prospect was a popular breakout candidate heading into the season, and it looks like the wrist issue will only be a minor hiccup.  Analysis: Spencer Silva

Derrick Rose scored 15 points (4-14 FGA, 5-5 FTA) after hitting two three-pointers while dishing out nine assists and pulling down seven rebounds in Chicago's 91-82 win over Milwaukee.

Rose wasn't that sharp, but he didn't need to be when Jimmy Butler went nuts. It's all about playing time and getting back into game-shape as it looks like the Bulls will move past the Bucks. If Rose can regain any type of form that was like his MVP season, the Bulls are going to be a force in the playoffs. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Jimmy Butler had a game-high 31 points (10-19 FGA, 8-14 FTA), going 3-of-9 from three-point land to with nine rebounds and two assists in Chicago's 91-82 win over Milwaukee.

Butler was the best player on the court in the Bulls' win, taking over the game after a slow-start. If he and Derrick Rose are able to stay healthy, the Bulls are a dangerous team in the East and have the chance to make it to the finals. Butler's minutes per game are incredible so there might be some fatigue down the stretch in case you are still playing daily Playoff leagues. Analysis: Rob Trayah
