Rush has missed the previous six games with a sprained toe. If he can play, it is unclear if the team will opt to ease him back into action. Shabazz Muhammad is also questionble, so Rush could be needed for some extra minutes if he cannot go.
Green was limited to 15 minutes during Monday's game against the Heat for precautionary reasons after being kneed near the groin area in the first half, Tom Osborn of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
Green indicated after Monday's game that he'll likely play Wednesday against Sacramento, although it's certainly possible that coach Gregg Popovich will err on the side of caution and allow Green to rest Wednesday, even though the injury isn't believed to be overly serious. If Green sits, Patty Mills and Jonathon Simmons will be in line for added minutes.
Young has been sidelined for over two weeks due to a sprained ankle, but in practicing in full Friday, he could be back available for Saturday's game against the Blazers. Nonetheless, considering Young has made just 11 appearances when healthy this season, his impending return shouldn't be of much consequence to fantasy owners.
The A's needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for Santiago Casilla, and Eibner was the casualty. He was a productive hitter at Triple-A for both the Royals and A's last year, but posted just a 65 wRC+ in 208 plate appearances in the big leagues. He is now seventh on the organizational outfield depth chart, and should struggle to see significant playing time in 2017.
Zeller has been sidelined since Dec. 29 due to an illness that saw him hospitalized at one point, but it sounds like he's finally close to making his return. With a full practice Friday, Zeller is seemingly just a shootaround attendance away from being cleared to play in Saturday's game against the Blazers. Given that he's missed nine straight games and is averaging just 12.1 minutes this season, Zeller's role will likely be limited once he's back available, but his presence should at least boost Boston's depth up front.
