News: Jordan was just 3-of-15 from the free throw line Sunday in a win over the Celtics, but he still finished the game with 15 points (6-8 FG), 14 rebounds and a steal in 29 minutes.
Impact: The Celtics went into full hack-a-Jordan mode in the fourth quarter o this game. At one point, Jordan missed six free throws in a row. However, he was able to make up for it with great rebounding numbers. Fantasy owners know what to expect from Jordan at this point in the season.
News: Crawford (calf) has a tentative return date of April 7, Arash Markazi of ESPN reports.
Impact: This return date could easily change, and it's unlikely that he would come back prior that day. With that said, it's safe to drop Crawford from your team if your fantasy playoffs end before the end of the NBA season, if you haven't already. Even if the playoffs go until the end of the NBA season, dropping Crawford now would be a smart move if there's someone on the waiver wire who can help you win now.
News: Robinson (knee) is unlikely to return to the Clippers after the team signed Lester Hudson on Sunday, the Orange County Register reports.
Impact: Robinson has been seeing minutes off the bench in the absence of Jamal Crawford, but his second 10-day contract expired earlier in the week, and the Clippers have been holding off on signing him for the rest of the season as he battles a bone bruise on his knee. With Robinson unable to contribute, the team was forced to look elsewhere, hence the decision to bring in Hudson. Hudson will remain with the team for at least 10 days, but after his deal expires it's conceivable to think the Clippers may look to re-sign Robinson, who is a more familiar face with playoff experience.
News: Hudson will sign a 10-day contract with the Clippers, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.
Impact: Hudston, a big-time scorer in college, is yet to find a permanent home in the NBA. He's spent time with the Celtics, Grizzlies, Wizards and Cavaliers since entering the league in 2008, but he's appeared in only 52 career games. Hudson was previously playing overseas in China. The signing all but guarantees Nate Robinson will not be signed for the rest of the season, and it's likely an indication that Jamal Crawford (calf) is not overly close to returning to the court.
News: The Los Angeles Clippers have signed Hudson to a 10-day contract.
Impact: He averaged 31.2 points, 7.7 rebounds and 6.9 assists in 50 games for Liaoning of the Chinese Basketball Association, where Hudson is a two-time MVP and three-time All-Star. The 6-foot-3 guard was originally drafted by the Boston Celtics with the 58th overall pick in the second round of the 2009 NBA draft. Hudson averaged 4.8 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 52 career NBA games with Boston, Memphis, Washington and Cleveland.
