  • Trey Burke UTA PG
    Jazz's Trey Burke: Ruled out for Saturday
    16m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Trey Burke (illness) will not play Saturday against Phoenix, Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

    Burke left Friday's game in the first half after coming down with an illness and he will not take the floor for Saturday's matchup. Erick Green figures to see an uptick in minutes behind Raul Neto at point guard against the Suns.

  • Pau Gasol CHI PF
    Bulls' Pau Gasol: Will play Saturday
    28m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Pau Gasol (hand) is available to play Saturday against Minnesota, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports.

    After testing out his injured left hand, Gasol will indeed take the floor for Saturday's matchup against the Timberwolves. The Chicago Bulls have yet to release their starting lineup, although with the dearth of healthy players in Chicago's front court, it'd be surprising if he didn't get the start.

    Timberwolves' Kevin Garnett: Ruled out for Saturday
    40m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play Saturday against Chicago.

    Garnett continues to be sidelined by lingering knee soreness and will miss yet another game Saturday, marking his eighth absence in a row. Gorgui Dieng is expected to get the start in the front cour with Garnett and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) both ruled out.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Will play Saturday
    44m ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Mike Dunleavy (back) announced that he will play Saturday against Minnesota, K.C Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The veteran Dunleavy is set to make his season debut Saturday against Minnesota after missing almost the entirety of the first half of the year with a back injury. He'll likely be on a heavy minutes restriction as he works his way back into game shape.

  • Pau Gasol CHI PF
    Bulls' Pau Gasol: To test injured hand in warmups Saturday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Pau Gasol will test out his injured hand during warmups before making a final decision on whether to play Saturday against Minnesota, Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago reports.

    Gasol sat out of Friday's matchup against the Nuggets after suffering a hand injury earlier in the week against Sacramento. He will attempt to play, and Friedell noted that Gasol seemed "hopeful" that he'd be able to give it a go against the Timberwolves. Further confirmation on his status should be made available shortly before tip-off.

  • Kevin Martin MIN SG
    Timberwolves' Kevin Martin: Out Saturday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Kevin Martin (wrist) has been ruled out Saturday against the Bulls.

    It is pretty clear that healthy or not, Martin is not in the T-Wolves' plans this season. They may try to get him some run to boost his trade value if he is healthy, but even that would seem like a foolhardy measure. His next chance to play will be Monday against the Pelicans.

  • Nikola Pekovic MIN C
    Timberwolves' Nikola Pekovic: Out Saturday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Nikola Pekovic (foot) has been ruled out Saturday against the Bulls.

    He has missed the last three games with a foot injury, and even prior to the injury he was playing fewer than 15 minutes per game. Developing players like Karl-Anthony Towns and Gorgui Dieng, both of whom are already better two-way players than Pekovic, will be the team's primary focus going forward. His next chance to play will be Monday against the Pelicans.

  • Nene WAS C
    Wizards' Nene Hilario: Out Saturday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Hilario (left calf tightness) has been ruled out Saturday against the Hornets.

    Hilario has not been the model of health over his career, and he will miss a second straight game with this minor ailment. Jared Dudley will get the start at the four in a small-ball lineup. His next chance to return to action will be Tuesday in New York.

  • Timofey Mozgov CLE C
    Cavaliers' Timofey Mozgov: Starting Saturday
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Timofey Mozgov will start at center against the Pelicans on Saturday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

    With Kevin Love (quad contusion) out, Mozgov figures to approach 30 minutes Saturday, making him a solid option in daily leagues. The Love injury doesn't seem very serious, so Mozgov's spike in value could be short lived.

  • Nene WAS C
    Wizards' Nene Hilario: Game-time decision Saturday
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Hilario (calf) is a game-time decision Saturday against the Hornets.

    He missed the Washington Wizards ' last game with the calf issue, but only saw 17-19 minutes in the three previous games, so there is limited upside if he is cleared to play. Jared Dudley figures to see a good chunk of the minutes at the four on Saturday, regardless of Hilario's status.

  • Ian Mahinmi IND C
    Pacers' Ian Mahinmi: Will start Saturday
    3h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Ian Mahinmi (back) will start Saturday's game against the Pistons.

    He missed four games with the back ailment, but with Andre Drummond on the docket Saturday night, Mahinmi will return at the perfect time, and without a minutes cap. Look for Jordan Hill, Myles Turner and Lavoy Allen to all see fewer minutes as a result.

  • Tiago Splitter ATL C
    Hawks' Tiago Splitter: Ruled out for Sunday
    4h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Tiago Splitter (hip) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Magic, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports.

    Sunday will mark Splitter's fourth consecutive missed game as a result of a nagging hip injury. The Atlanta Hawks will have two more games before the All-Star break following Sunday's matchup, so it's unclear at this point if they will take the cautious route and hold Splitter out until after the break.

    Spurs' Matt Bonner: Out Saturday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Matt Bonner (calf) will not play Saturday against the Lakers, the San Antonio Express-News' Jeff McDonald reports.

    The three oldest players on the San Antonio Spurs -- Bonner, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili -- are all out against the anemic Lakers. Look for LaMarcus Aldridge, David West and Boris Diaw to start out handling most of the frontcourt minutes, with Boban Marjanovic getting some run if things get out of hand, which seems likely. Bonner's next chance to return will be Tuesday in Miami.

  • Kris Humphries WAS PF
    Wizards' Kris Humphries: Out Saturday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Kris Humphries (knee) has been ruled out Saturday against the Hornets.

    He has now missed 16 straight games, and has been unable to capitalize on the absence of Nene Hilario, who is day-to-day as well. Consider Humphries highly questionable for Tuesday's game in New York.

  • Kevin Love CLE PF
    Cavaliers' Kevin Love: Out Saturday with quad contusion
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Kevin Love (quad contusion) is out Saturday against the Pelicans, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

    This is not a bad spot for the Cavs to go without Love, given the Pelicans' struggles, although it will force Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov to handle more minutes than usual. Mozgov enters the starting lineup at center with Thompson moving to power forward, and there may also be some lineups where LeBron James moves over to the four. Consider Love questionable in advance of Monday's game against the Kings.

  • Alonzo Gee NO SF
    Pelicans' Alonzo Gee: Back to bench role Saturday
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Alonzo Gee will move to a bench role Saturday against the Cavaliers, New Orleans Pelicans announcer Sean Kelley reports.

    Dante Cunningham will get to try his hand at running with the starters Saturday, although he attempted just one shot in 32 minutes in his last game. Tyreke Evans has been ruled out through the All-Star break, so Gee should still see some quality run over the next four games, but his value is trending down.

  • Dante Cunningham NO SF
    Pelicans' Dante Cunningham: Moves to starting lineup
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Dante Cunningham will move into the starting lineup Saturday against the Cavaliers, New Orleans Pelicans announcer Sean Kelley reports.

    Somehow Cunningham played 32 minutes in the Pelicans' last game and attempted just one shot from the field, so he is anything but a safe option with Tyreke Evans out. That said, he probably offers a bit more multi-category upside than Gee. Evans has been ruled out through the All-Star break, so Cunningham should see plenty of minutes over at least the next four games.

  • Rudy Gay SAC SF
    Kings' Rudy Gay: Doubtful for Sunday
    3h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Rudy Gay (ankle) is doubtful for Sunday's game against Boston, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Gay left Friday's game early in the first quarter with a sprained left ankle and did not return to action. He was initially considered day-to-day, but has since been downgraded to doubtful in advance of Sunday's matchup with the Celtics. Omri Casspi is the likeliest candidate to step into the starting lineup should Gay miss Sunday's contest.

    Trail Blazers' Maurice Harkless: Will start Saturday

    Maurice Harkless will make his second straight start Saturday when the Portland Trail Blazers take on the Rockets, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

    Noah Vonleh continues to be sidelined by a sprained ankle, which opens the door for Harkless to make yet another start. He didn't get starter-level minutes Thursday, playing just 16 minutes and putting up two points and two blocks against the Raptors.

    Bulls' Mike Dunleavy: Questionable to play Saturday
    5h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Mike Dunleavy (back) is questionable to play Saturday versus the Chicago Bulls , Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Dunleavy has yet to make his season debut after undergoing back surgery late in the summer, but could see an immediate role in the team's rotation if he can return Saturday. The reason being that Jimmy Butler suffered a sprained knee in Friday's game, and the Bulls could use a scoring presence on the wing. Expect an update on his status closer to tip-off.

    Wizards' Bradley Beal: Will come off bench Saturday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Bradley Beal is available Saturday, but he is not in the starting lineup against the Hornets, CSN Washington's Jorge Castillo reports.

    Saturday represents the second night of a back-to-back, and Beal played 32 minutes Friday, so it would not be surprising if the Washington Wizards ' medical staff recommends fewer minutes for the shooting guard Saturday. This makes him a risky play in daily leagues. Garrett Temple will get the start at the two, but he also has limited upside Saturday.

  • Garrett Temple WAS SG
    Wizards' Garrett Temple: Starting Saturday
    1h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Garrett Temple will get the start at the two Saturday against the Hornets, CSN Washington's Jorge Castillo reports.

    It is unlikely that Temple will be a volume fantasy producer Saturday, as Bradley Beal is expected to play, he just won't get the start. Presumably the reason Beal is not in the starting lineup is because it is the second night of a back-to-back, so it might be wise to avoid both Washington Wizards shooting guards Saturday.

  • Jimmy Butler CHI SG
    Bulls' Jimmy Butler: Knee strain confirmed, out indefinitely
    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Jimmy Butler 's left knee strain was confirmed Saturday and he is without a timetable to return.

    Butler's return will be dictated by how he responds to treatment, but he is one of the toughest players in the league, so it would not be surprising if he returned sooner than some might expect, given the fact that he was carted off Friday night. This is generally good news, as he did not suffer a tear, which could have ended his season. Look for Tony Snell, E'Twaun Moore and Doug McDermott to handle Butler's minutes over the rest of the first half, and we should get an update on Butler's status around the All-Star break.

    Kings' Ben McLemore: Doubtful for Sunday
    3h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful for Sunday's game against Boston, Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    McLemore's wrist injury kept him out of Monday's win over the Bucks and though he was able to play the following game Friday, he was limited to just 12 minutes off the bench. If he misses the Sacramento Kings ' game against the Celtics, Marco Belinelli could make another start at shooting guard.

    Trail Blazers' Allen Crabbe: Ruled out for Saturday

    Allen Crabbe is dealing with gastritis and will miss Saturday's game against Houston, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

    Crabbe came down with the illness not long before the Portland Trail Blazers were set to take the floor for warmups Saturday. In Crabbe's absence, Al Farouq-Aminu and C.J McCollum could see additional playing time at their respective spots and Gerald Henderson could see a slight minutes bump as well.

    2h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Tyreke Evans (knee) will remain out through the All-Star break, New Orleans Pelicans radio announcer Sean Kelley reports.

    This does not come as a big surprise, as he has now missed five straight games, and is about to miss his sixth in a row on Saturday against the Cavaliers. Dante Cunningham will get the start at the three on Saturday, with Alonzo Gee heading to the bench. This means the soonest Evans could return is Feb. 19 against the Sixers.

    The Sixers quickly announced that T.J. McConnell would get the start at point guard, meaning he could see 30-plus minutes. Isaiah Canaan and Kendall Marshall could also see slight upticks in minutes Saturday. Smith is fully expected to return Monday against the Clippers.

    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play Saturday against the Pelicans, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

    He will miss his third straight game with the ailment, and figures to be replaced in the rotation by Mo Williams, with Kyrie Irving possibly seeing slightly more minutes as well. Consider Dellavedova questionable in advance of Monday's game against the Kings.

    Austin Rivers (hand) is questionable to play Sunday versus the Heat, Dan Woike of the OC Register reports.

    After injuring his hand in Wednesday's contest versus the Timberwolves, Rivers missed the following game Friday. His status Sunday will likely depend on how his hand is feeling closer to tip-off. If he cannot go, Jamal Crawford should see an expanded role in the the backup rotation. Expect an update on his status closer to game-time.

    9h ago • By RotoWire Staff

    Ish Smith is questionable to participate in Saturday's matchup with the Nets after spraining his ankle Friday, Jessica Camerato of Philadelphia's Comcast Sports Network reports.

    It is unclear when Smith hurt his ankle in Friday's loss to the Wizards, but he appears to be a true game-time decision Saturday. His status will simply depend on how his ankle is feeling closer to tip-off. He posted 22 points, five rebounds, five assists, three steals, and one block in 32 minutes Friday. If he cannot go, look for T.J. McConnell and Kendall Marshall to see increased roles with the team.
