Manny Machado is expected to have surgery on his knee within a week. He is likely out for the season.

This hasn't been Machado's calendar year. He will now have surgery on his right knee and is likely out for the remainder of the season. For such a young player, it is discouraging that he will have had two major knee surgeries before the age of 23. This is a big blow to the playoff bound Orioles.ANALYST: David Kerr

Mike Conley scored 18 points (6-14 FGA, 4-6 FTA) and hit 2-of-6 three-pointers with four rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in Memphis' 97-83 win over Sacramento.

Conley produced a season-high two blocks, a nice bonus for his fantasy owners who saw him also lead the Grizzlies in points. He has returned nicely from an injury he sustained back on Mar. 11 averaging 30 minutes a night for Memphis. With the Grizz in the playoffs, don't be surprised to see him sit a night or two down the stretch so be sure to look out for his status. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Jeff Green had 16 points (6-11 FGA, 2-3 FTA) to go with four rebounds and four assists in the Grizzlies' 97-83 win over the Kings.

Green got another start Monday night and has been able to average 14.8 PPG with 4.2 assists over his last five games. He is also 6-for-9 over his last three games from deep, adding more value to his game. If he gets the minutes, like his 31.4 minutes per game over his last five, he can produce. Fantasy owners can only hope he does the same over the stretch of their fantasy playoffs. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Ish Smith scored 17 points with five rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Sixers 113-111 loss to the Lakers on Monday.

Smith has played well since being moved into the starting lineup and is averaging 13.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.0 three-pointers over the past five games. As long as Smith is in the starting lineup he holds fantasy value in most league formats. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Isaiah Canaan came off the bench to score 18 points with three assists and three steals in the Sixers 113-111 loss to the Lakers on Monday.

Canaan has been coming off the bench due to his inconsistencies while in the starting lineup and well his performance on Monday against the Lakers was solid it should likely be his ceiling for the remainder of the season unless his role changes. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Nerlens Noel registered a double-double on Monday, scoring 19 points with 14 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in the Sixers 113-111 loss to the Lakers.

Noel has really turned in on this month, averaging 14.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.1 blocks and 2.5 steals per game. The No.6 overall pick in the 2013 draft is showing the talent that would have potentially made him the No.1 pick if not for tearing his ACL in college. The Sixers have tons of young talent and if Noel continues to develop he could quickly turn into one of the leagues top centers. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Ryan Kelly filled the stat sheet on Monday, scoring 16 points with seven rebounds, four assists and four blocks in the Lakers 113-111 win over the Sixers.

This was a good effort from Kelly as he has scored in double-figures in three of the last five games. During that stretch he has averaged 11.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.2 steals and 1.4 three-pointers per game. In the deeper standard leagues Kelly is worthy of being rostered due to his role in the starting lineup. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Wayne Ellington scored 20 points with three rebounds and three assists in the Lakers 113-111 win over the Sixers on Monday.

Ellington is averaging just 9.8 points per game on the season and while he has now scored in double-figures in three of the last five games he has very limited fantasy value unless hes hitting from three-point range. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Jordan Clarkson registered a double-double on Monday, scoring a game high 26 points with six rebounds, 11 assists and three steals in the Lakers 113-111 win over the Sixers.

Clarkson is enjoying a great stretch of play for the Lakers and his fantasy owners, averaging 21.6 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.6 steals over the past five games. The rookie 2nd rounder has excelled since being moved into the starting lineup for the Lakers and should continue to be one of the lone bright spots for the Lakers as the season comes to an end. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Gerald Henderson scored 17 points and pulled down three rebounds in the Hornets 116-104 loss to the Celtics.

Henderson has become a very stable player for the Hornets and his fantasy owners, averaging 15.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists for the month of March. Those in fantasy leagues should continue to start him with confidence as the Hornets battle for a playoff spot they will need continued production from Henderson. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Mo Williams came off the bench to score 19 points and pull down three rebounds in the Hornets 116-104 loss to the Celtics on Monday.

Williams continues to excel since being acquired by the Hornets and though he has been moved to the bench hes averaging 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.8 three-pointers over the past five games. Williams is a must start in all fantasy formats due to his high level of production. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Kemba Walker registered a double-double on Monday, scoring a team high 28 points with three rebounds, 12 assists and two steals in the Hornets 116-104 loss to the Celtics.

Walker is averaging 19.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 three-pointers over the past five games. This was a big game for the Hornets as they trailed the Celtics by just 1.5 games in the standings but they were unable to gain ground. If the Hornets hope to make the playoffs they will need Walker to continue to produce at this high level and his fantasy owners will certainly benefit as well. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Isaiah Thomas played 22 minutes off the bench on Monday, scoring 10 points while adding seven assists in the Celtics 116-104 win over the Hornets.

Thomas is still seemingly on a minutes limit for the Celtics and struggled on Monday against the Hornets going just 3-for-9 from the field. Thomas has not been overly efficient since coming to Boston but he is taking enough shots that he can put up some decent scoring totals with the ones that fall. Until Thomas is once again seeing starter minutes hes going to be a tough player to predict. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Evan Turner turned in another solid performance on Monday, scoring 15 points with six rebounds, five assists and one steal in the Celtics 116-104 win over the Hornets.

Turner continues to fill the stat sheet for the Celtics and his fantasy owners as he averages 12.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 7.4 assists over the past five games. Turners ability to contribute across the board has made his a solid daily league option and is worthy of starting if you dont feel like paying up for the top tier guys. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Avery Bradley scored a game high 30 points with eight rebounds and two assists in the Celtics 116-104 win over the Hornets on Monday.

This was a big effort from Bradley who had cooled a bit over the three games prior but is still averaging a solid 15.4 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.6 three-pointers over the past five. Bradley along with Isaiah Thomas are the Celtics main offensive weapons and will be vital to their playoff hopes. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
