Max Scherzer took the loss Monday after allowing two runs on nine hits and three walks with just four strikeouts over seven innings to the Yankees in New York.

Last year's AL CY Young award winner saw his streak of appearances without a loss snapped at seven games with Monday's defeat, which was his first loss since June 17. Despite the loss, Scherzer who is 13-4 in 23 starts this season, recorded his eighth consecutive quality start after having been lit up for 10 runs by the Royals in his previous defeat.ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Tyler Johnson and Henry Walker will start Friday against the Wizards.

Walker and Johnson will be starting in place of Deng and Wade on Friday night and although they might not match their production, expect them to pull their weight in the fantasy realm and be a productive start. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Dwyane Wade (hip) will not play Friday against the Wizards.

Henry Walker and Tyler Johnson should take his minutes at the two or three on Friday night. Don't expect Wade like production, but they should be able to hold their own. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Update: Luol Deng (right thigh contusion) will not play Friday.

James Ennis and Tyler Johnson should see their minutes increased due to the Deng injury. Don't expect Johnson to replicate his 26 point outing on Monday night, but he should be productive. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Jae Crowder will start Friday in place of Avery Bradley.

Crowder has been pretty hot of late, so his start comes as no surprise, especially considering Bradley's struggles. If you feel comfortable, give Crowder a whirl in daily leagues, but wait and see for a few days in standard leagues, as it is still unclear if this move is permanent. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Channing Frye is in the Magic starting lineup on Friday.

Frye is likely getting the starting nod due to the absence of Nikola Vucevic. Expect Dewayne Dedmon to get extended playing time at center on Friday night. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Patrick Beverley will play Friday against the Pistons.

Beverley doesn't have obvious fantasy potential, but he isn't too bad of an option, if your other guards are hurt or off for the night.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Terrence Jones will play Friday against the Pistons.

This is great news for Jones owners, as he has been red hot of late. Considering the injury, curb your expectations on Friday night, but he still should be able to go for 15 against the Pistons. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Terrence Ross will return to the starting lineup Friday in place of James Johnson.

Ross has been pretty solid this season, but cannot continue to be effective off the bench for the Raptors. Luckily, coach Casey is giving him the starting nod on Friday night in place of James Johnson, so expect him to play well in terms of fantasy production. There is no clear indication if this is permanent. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Nikola Vucevic (ankle) will not play Friday against the Kings.

Vucevic only had five rebounds in his last game, there is no indication that the ankle was the reason for this poor outing, but it does kind of make sense. Anyway, expect Dewayne Dedmon to get the start at center on Friday night agains the Kings. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Seahawks announce the release of TE Zach Miller with failed physical designation.

Miller wasn't integral to the Seahawks offensive attack anyway, so don't worry too much about a drop off from Russell Wilson in terms of passing production. They should be able to find a better replacement during the offseason anyway. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Adam Lind did not play Friday because his back flared up taking grounders on Thursday.

Nothing to worry about here because luckily Spring Training is over a month long, so Lind will have ample time to work this issue out.  Analysis: Dom Murtha

Luol Deng (quad contusion) has been downgraded to doubtful Friday.

James Ennis and Tyler Johnson should see their minutes increased due to the Deng injury. Don't expect Johnson to replicate his 26 point outing on Monday night, but he should be productive. Analysis: Dom Murtha

Devin Harris (hand) will not play Friday against the Warriors.

Expect Raymond Felton to party like its 2012 now that he should finally have a crack at some playing time due to the injuries to both Devin Harris and J.J. Barea. Rondo will however, still take most of the minutes at the point, but Felton should see some time against the Warriors.  Analysis: Dom Murtha
