  • Terrence Jones HOU PF
    Rockets' Terrence Jones: Sustains concussion, ruled out Saturday
    10m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Terrence Jones has been diagnosed with a concussion after being involved in a car accident Thursday afternoon, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Jones will be held out of Saturday's matchup with Portland.

    Initially, it was reported that Jones escaped the incident without any injuries, but further evaluations revealed that he sustained a concussion. As a result, Jones, who sat out Thursday's game, has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers. Consider the forward day-to-day and questionable for Tuesday's contest against the Warriors in Oakland.

    Montrezl Harrell (illness) has been cleared to play on Friday night, Jonathan Feign of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Goran Dragic (illness) is still expected to play Friday against the Hornets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

    There isn't any new information here, but coach Erik Spoelstra reiterated that Dragic is expected to take the court despite battling an illness. Spoelstra said the same earlier in the day, though it's worth noting Dragic's condition does not appear to have worsened.

    Pelicans' Tyreke Evans: Ruled out Saturday
    28m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Tyreke Evans (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's matchup with the Cavaliers.

    Evans will miss a sixth consecutive game as he continues to deal with tendinitis in his right knee. The Memphis product is without a timetable and is being evaluated on a game-to-game basis. With Eric Gordon (finger) also out, the Pels will likely go with a backcourt pairing of Norris Cole and Bryce Dejean-Jones again Saturday night.

    Wizards' Nene Hilario: Out for Thursday
    30m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Hilario (calf) has been ruled out of Friday's matchup with the 76ers.

    The move to have Hilario come off the bench the past two games may have something to do with his sudden calf injury. Expect more information about the injury to surface within the next couple of days. Look for Jared Dudley and Drew Gooden to see extra action on Friday night.

    Ben McLemore (wrist) will play in Friday's matchup with the Nets, James Ham of CSNBayArea.com reports.

    McLemore was held out of Monday's win over the Bucks, his first miss of the season, but was able to come off the bench in Wednesday's game as he logged 18 minutes. McLemore could see his minutes monitored off the bench again on Friday, in which case Marco Belinelli could snag the start.

    DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) will play in Friday's matchup with the Nets, James Ham of CSNBayArea.com reports

    After missing Monday's game against the Bucks, Cousins returned to the lineup on Wednesday against the Bulls, playing over 37 minutes while tallying 30 points and 11 rebounds. He should be good to play major minutes again on Friday.

    Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic: Doubtful Saturday
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Nikola Pekovic (foot) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Bulls, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.

    If he is officially ruled out, this will be the third game in a row Pekovic will miss due to foot soreness. However, given that Pekovic has been buried in the frontcourt rotation this season, his absence has had little-to-no impact on the minutes distribution.

    Festus Ezeli (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Golden State Warriors , Rusty Simmons of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    This will be the fifth game in a row Ezeli has missed due to his knee injury. Andrew Bogut and Marreese Speights will likely once again log extra minutes in the big man's absence.

    Heat's Hassan Whiteside: To come off bench Friday
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Hassan Whiteside will come off the bench again Friday against Charlotte, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports.

    Whiteside came off the bench Wednesday in Dallas in his return from a six-game absence, finishing with 10 points, nine rebounds, and five blocks in 17 minutes. However, even with the oblique injury seemingly behind him, Whiteside will come off the bench again Friday, as the Miami Heat stick with Amar'e Stoudemire as the starter. It's unclear how long that will continue, but Whiteside figures to reclaim his starting spot at some point in the near future.

  • Jonas Valanciunas TOR C
    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Double-doubles in Thursday victory
    7h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jonas Valanciunas posted 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds and two blocks over 25 minutes in Thursday's 110-103 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    The four-year veteran supplied his third double-double in the last five games, and got back over the 20-minute mark in playing time after a pair of 19-minute outings. Valanciunas had been bothered by a wrist injury in recent days, but his Thursday performance appeared to indicate he is unencumbered by the ailment at this point. He's started February off well despite the limited playing time, averaging 12.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over just 21.0 minutes on the court in three games. If his minutes creep back up close to his 26.3 season average, the 23-year-old should continue as a solid source of points and rebounds in all fantasy formats.

    Kevin Garnett (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Bulls, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.

    Garnett's doubtful tag means that he is likely to miss his eighth straight game with right knee soreness. Gorgui Dieng will likely get the start in place of Garnett should he be ruled out once again.

    Kris Humphries (knee) remains out Friday against the 76ers, Ben Standig of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

    As expected, Humphries will miss his 15th straight game, and it remains unclear when he'll be able to return. Continue to consider the veteran forward doubtful on a game-to-game basis until the Washington Wizards say otherwise.

    Amar'e Stoudemire will start again Friday against the Hornets, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports.

    Hassan Whiteside will come off the bench for the second straight game as he continues to work back toward full strength after missing six games with an oblique injury. As such, the veteran Stoudemire will remain in a starting role Friday, though he's unlikely to see more than 20-25 minutes. Whiteside figures to return to a starting role at some point, though coach Erik Spoelstra declined to elaborate on his plans for the center spot beyond Friday.

    76ers' Richaun Holmes: Expected to miss next two games
    6h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Richaun Holmes sprained his right ankle during a scrimmage Thursday and is expected to miss the next two games, Jessica Camerato of CSN New England reports.

    The rookie out of Bowling Green has held a bench role for the Philadelphia 76ers this season, but he hasn't been much of a fantasy option, as he rarely sees more than 20 minutes per night. Philadelphia will handle the injury on a day-to-day basis, but assuming the current expected timetable holds up, Holmes will miss Friday's game in Washington and Saturday's contest against the Nets. That would set Holmes up for a potential return Monday versus the Clippers.

    James McAdoo (toe) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Thunder, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    This is now McAdoo's 18th straight inactive with his toe injury and the team has not provided any sort of update regarding the forward's status. He'll likely continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis.

    Celtics' Jae Crowder: Game-time call Friday
    7h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jae Crowder (ankle/shin) is considered a game-time call for Friday's matchup with the Cavs.

    Crowder bruised his shin earlier in the week and subsequently rolled his ankle in Wednesday's game against Detroit, but he'll still have a chance to play Friday night following an off day Thursday. The Marquette product did not go through shootaround, however, so his status is certainly something to monitor throughout the afternoon. Crowder, himself, said Friday morning that he's expecting to be cleared to play despite swelling and discomfort in the ankle.

    Rockets' Corey Brewer: Scores team-high 24 points in Thursday win
    17h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Corey Brewer scored 24 points (9-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with four steals and an assist in 25 minutes on Thursday in a win against the Suns.

    Brewer has seen more minutes lately with all the injuries that have ravaged the Houston Rockets ' roster. As long as the injuries keep piling up, Brewer will be a fantastic play in all fantasy formats since he can fill up the stat sheet in a lot of different ways. Thursday's great performance had a lot to do with the Suns ineptitude to play defense, but at most, it did show what Brewer is capable when given the chance.

    Knicks' Carmelo Anthony: Rough night from field but scores 19 in Thursday loss
    18h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Carmelo Anthony dropped 19 points (4-18 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 10-14 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, eight assists and a steal on Thursday in a loss to the Pistons.

    Anthony really struggled from the field on Thursday in a very tough matchup against Marcus Morris and the Pistons. He did most of his damage from the free-throw line, getting there a season-high 14 times. Melo is also starting to rack up the rebounds and Thursday marked the fourth consecutive game that he had at least 10 of them. The New York Knicks have lost seven of their last eight games and if they're going to turn it around and make the playoffs, Melo will be the guy that gets them there. He's been a great play in all fantasy formats lately and there's nothing that shows that will stop in the near future.

    Pistons' Stanley Johnson: Monster performance in Thursday win

    Stanley Johnson scored 22 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in 44 minutes on Thursday in a win against the Knicks.

    Johnson hit a career-high for points and also matched his highest assist total on Thursday. Filling in for the injured Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the rookie out of Arizona played an incredible 44 minutes. There was some chatter that the Detroit Pistons might lose a step without KCP and the number of minutes he logs each game, but Johnson did more than what was expected of him. Johnson will continue to be a necessity as long as KCP is out of the lineup, and still an exceptional play when he returns.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Starts Thursday against Raptors
    20h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Maurice Harkless got the start Thursday against Toronto with Noah Vonleh injured, Eric Ringering of 750thegame reports.

    Bringing Harkless into the rotation allows coach Terry Stotts to maintain his typical rotations with Meyers Leonard serving as the backup center to Mason Plumlee. Harkless is unlikely to receive the typical starters minutes load, as he has not played more than three minutes in a game over the past two weeks.

    Kobe Bryant did not participate in practice Friday but said he will play Saturday against the Spurs, Mark Medina of the LA Daily News reports.

    Bryant was absent Friday for maintenance purposes, as the Los Angeles Lakers continue to monitor the 37-year-old's workload. In Thursday's win over the Pelicans, Bryant finished with 27 points and 12 rebounds in 32 minutes, and he's now amassed 65 points over his last two contests. Expect to see him at his usual starting small forward spot Saturday night.

    Jimmy Butler (knee) is listed as probable for Friday's game against Denver, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports.

    Butler had said he will play Friday night and he looks to be headed in that direction after missing Wednesday's game with a sore left knee. He is reportedly still battling discomfort, so whether the shooting guard will play a full load of minutes Friday is still to be determined. But all signs point to Butler playing regardless.

    Jimmy Butler (knee) went through shootaround but will wait until pregame warmups to decide whether or not he'll play Friday night against Denver, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports.

    Butler, who missed Wednesday's game with a sore left knee, said he's feeling a little better, but he's still battling discomfort. As such, he'll receive treatment throughout the afternoon and test out the knee in warmups before making a final call. Given the situation, Butler is a risky daily play, as his status may not be decided until minutes before game-time.

    Allen Crabbe tallied 17 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three rebounds, an assist and two steals over 34 minutes in Thursday's 110-103 loss to the Raptors.

    Crabbe continues to serve as the top point producer off the bench for Portland, now having posted four double-digit scoring performances in the last five games. His minutes appear locked in to the mid-20s at a minimum, allowing him ample opportunity to make solid contributions in season-long formats during the majority of his appearances, and to return value on his typically-modest pricing in daily leagues. The third-year pro's February is off to a strong start, with the 23-year-old averaging 14.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists over 29.0 minutes in the first two games of the month.

    Nuggets' Jameer Nelson: Sitting out Friday, likely longer
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play Friday against the Bulls and could miss additional contests, the Denver Post reports.

    Nelson is battling a sprained left wrist, which has kept him out of the Denver Nuggets ' previous two games. The veteran admitted that he tried to play through the issue, but the discomfort was simply too limiting. "I didn't feel like I could help the team," Nelson said. "And if I'm not helping the team, I'm hurting it. So I just felt like it was better for me to sit down." Nelson has officially been ruled out for Friday's game, and the Denver Post's report intimates that he's a "longshot at best" to play Sunday in New York or Monday in Brooklyn. Nelson will undergo an MRI on the wrist, with an update expected to come in the next few days. "I'm just waiting on some things to get resolved to see what's next, what's best for it and how we approach the next step," Nelson said. "I'm always going to be honest with Coach, the organization and the training staff. I just told them I was hurting. For whatever reason, before the game I was hurting in Indiana, so I tried to play through it. I've played through injuries before. I've dealt with pain."

    Devin Harris (toe) has been ruled out of both Friday's game against the Spurs, as well as Saturday's matchup with the Grizzlies, Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

    Harris continues to deal with a toe injury that has already costed him the last six games. He said he's not experiencing any pain while barefoot, but as soon as he attempts to put shoes on, it starts causing him nerve pain. Considering he's already been ruled out for Saturday, it doesn't appear that Harris is close to making a return to the court. He'll sit out both Friday and Saturday's back-to-back set and remains without a concrete timetable for a return. Consider him day-to-day moving forward, while his next shot to play will be Tuesday versus the Jazz.
