Game watch:
4 games: CHA, CHI, DAL, GS, IND, LAC, MIL, MIN, NY, OKC, ORL, PHI, POR, SAC, UTA
3 games: ATL, BOS, CLE, DET, HOU, LAL, MEM, MIA, NO, PHO, SA, TOR
2 games: DEN, NJ, WAS

Waiver-wire watch:

  • Francisco Garcia: in his first game since Jan. 15, he finished with 18 points, four three-pointers, three rebounds and two steals
  • Carlos Delfino: up and down lately, but continues to put up strong overall numbers and racked up nine steals in two games last week
  • Wes Johnson: in his four games before the flu derailed him, Johnson was tearing up box scores
  • Matt Bonner: usually a good source of threes, has hit nine in his last two games
  • Jodie Meeks: averaging 14 points, 2.7 threes, 2.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.7 steals in his last three
  • Ty Lawson: appeal is limited by Raymond Felton’s presence on the Nuggets roster, but Lawson still producing solid lines
  • Darrell Arthur: has hit double digits in the points column in his last four games, racked up six blocks in that stretch too
  • Ed Davis: had two strong games against the Nets in London; he should definitely be worth a look in deeper leagues
  • Ryan Anderson: has shown signs of life again lately, worth a look if you need threes and some rebounds
  • Sasha Vujacic: should get more run with Anthony Morrow sidelined with a concussion
  • Jared Dudley: inconsistent but puts up solid averages
  • Jarrett Jack: putting up solid lines lately, though he doesn’t do much besides score
  • Marvin Williams: he doesn’t have a high ceiling but you know what you’re getting with him
  • DeAndre Jordan: first two games of the month have been good, though inconsistency is always in the cards for him
  • Courtney Lee: averaging 13.7 points, 1.7 threes, 1.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists in his three games in March
  • Jordan Farmar: deserves a look in deeper leagues, especially with Deron Williams hurting
  • Mike Miller: big expectations won’t be fulfilled, but he’s still a decent all-around contributor on most days
  • Tony Allen: he’s a good pickup in many leagues, especially if you need steals
  • Reggie Williams: decent low-end pickup who will have nice games every now and then

Injury watch:

  • Josh Smith (knee): participated in shootaround with a brace on his knee, should be good to go today
  • Shaquille O’Neal (Achilles): not close to returning
  • Von Wafer (calf): day-to-day
  • Arron Afflalo (hamstring): day-to-day
  • Andrew Bogut (oblique): out today; day-to-day
  • Ersan Ilyasova (concussion): ditto
  • David West (ankle): expects to play today
  • Ronny Turiaf (knee): should play today
  • Chauncey Billups (calf): game-time decision today
  • Reggie Evans (foot): should return Wednesday
  • Ronnie Price (toe): will travel with the Jazz for their upcoming four-game road trip
  • Andrei Kirilenko (back): back spasms will make him a game-time decision for Monday
  • Rashard Lewis (knee): out today; surgery still an option
  • Stephen Jackson (hamstring): coach Paul Silas won’t play S-Jax until his hammy is healed
  • Tayshaun Prince (back): should be OK today
  • Martell Webster (back): should return Monday
  • Darko Milcic (personal): ditto
  • Paul Millsap (knee): monitor his status
  • Mehmet Okur (back): may travel with the team for their upcoming road trip
  • Earl Watson (lip): game-time decision today
  • Josh Howard (hamstring): day-to-day
  • Eric Gordon (wrist): bone chip in his wrist takes him out indefinitely
  • Damion James (concussion): day-to-day

Stock watch:

↑ Al Jefferson: averaged 24.7 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and 3.3 blocks in his last three; he should benefit is Millsap misses time

↑ Kyle Lowry: has settled into his secure starting gig and is thriving, even nailing lots of threes lately

↑ Marcus Thornton: taking full advantage of Tyreke Evans’ absence

↑ Stephen Curry: has bounced back from his slump in late February, though his last game was weak

↑ Zach Randolph: averaged 21.7 points, 12.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists and two steals in his last three games

↓ Dwyane Wade: killer turnovers are weighing down his somewhat weaker fantasy value lately

↓ Amar’e Stoudemire: back to his non-rebounding/-blocking ways

↓ Steve Nash: struggling with his shooting from the field lately

↓ Marc Gasol: it’s official: his season is a big disappointment
