Jeff Hornacek said Eric Bledsoe is "stepping up his rehab. Every day they're doing something a little bit more, but there is still no new timetable.
Bledsoe is still a ways a way from returning, if he does at all, so no need to stash him in any redraft leagues at this point.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
It is good to hear that he is rehabbing, but the "still no timetable" part has me worried. It still seems like he is a long way from returning. Even when he does return, it might be to late for fantasy owners. Continue to stash him, but don't be surprised if he gets ruled out for another month or so.ANALYST: Mark Kaplan
ESPN sources say the Wizards are pushing hard to land David West.
The veteran power forward averaged 11.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.4 assists over 28.7 minutes per game last season for the Pacers. His veteran leadership is as much a part of his game as his work in the frontcourt and several teams are expected to be courting the 34-year old. If the Wizards are going to make a hard push, then an offer should come soon. Analysis: Howard Bender
Cole Hamels is unlikely to accept a trade to the Houston Astros.
Hamels has a limited no trade clause that allows him to block trades to 20 teams. Hamels would be the perfect target for the Astros as a true ace with team control beyond this season, but they will have to work elsewhere. Hamels will have a better chance at wins wherever he winds up, but a trade to the American League would obviously hurt his fantays value. Analysis: Steve Pimental
