Matt Bonner is questionable for the San Antonio Spurs matchup with the Lakers Saturday due to a left calf strain, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.
Even if Bonner can go, it is doubtful he will find himself in the team's rotation Saturday. He did play four minutes Friday, providing seven points, one rebound, one assist, and one triple in four minutes of action. It was his biggest workload since playing 11 minutes Jan. 11 against the Suns.
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.
Pau Gasol (hand) is questionable to play Saturday versus the Timberwolves, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Gasol was a surprising scratch from Friday's game, because it is unclear when he actually hurt his hand. However, if there is any chance he can go he will likely give it a shot considering Jimmy Butler has already been ruled out, and the Chicago Bulls could use his offensive presence. Expect an update on his status closer to tip-off Saturday.
Jimmy Butler (knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's matchup against the Timberwolves after spraining his knee Frisay, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Butler suffered a scary knee injury Friday that has fortunately only been diagnosed as a knee sprain for now. There is currently no timetable for his return, but it would likely be safe to assume he will not return until after the All Star break. However, that is just speculation at this point. In his absence E'Twaun Moore, Tony Snell, and Doug McDermott should see increased usage in the team's offense. Derrick Rose will likely need to take on a bigger role offensively as well. Mike Dunleavy is considered questionable Saturday also, but could see an immediate heavier workload than usual due to Butler's status.
Brian Elliott will be in the crease in Saturday's game against the Wild, NHL.com's Lou Korac reports.
Elliott wasn't great in his last outing, surrendering three goals on 32 shots en route to a 3-1 loss to the Sharks on Thursday. The former ninth-round pick will look to bounce back Saturday in a highly favorable matchup with a struggling Minnesota club that has lost nine of its last ten games.
