The San Antonio Spurs continue to list LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, but teammate Boris Diaw seemed to hint that the star big man could be available for the contest, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
When McDonald asked Diaw who would be tasked with covering the Mavs' Dirk Nowitzki for the game, Diaw said, "Probably LaMarcus," intimating that Aldridge would be available. That's far from an official declaration that Aldridge will play, however, and more clarity on that front likely won't arrive until the Spurs conduct pregame warmups 30 minutes ahead of the 8:30 ET tip. Because games will already be underway at that day, Aldridge remains a highly risky lineup choice for those playing in daily contests.
Head coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that
Baldwin's minor ankle injury may impact his practice participation this week, but Carroll isn't worried about the availability of his No. 1 receiver once game day arrives. While Pittsburgh is coming off a bye week, the defense has been touched up by wide receivers this season, allowing 191.9 receiving yards per game and nine touchdowns to wideouts to date.
DeMarcus Ware (back) did not practice Wednesday, the Denver Post reports.
Coach Gary Kubiak relayed Wednesday that Ware was "a little bit better than last week," but at this stage the outside linebacker is still not ready to practice, which clouds his Week 12 status.
Eric Ebron (quadriceps/hand) is listed as probable for Thursday's game versus the Eagles, Tim Twentyman of the Detroit Lions ' official site reports.
With back-to-back full practices under his belt, Ebron will attempt to bounce back from Sunday's catch-less outing against a Philadelphia defense that has held tight ends in check this season, yielding 8.9 YPC and only two touchdowns to date.
Emmanuel Sanders (ankle/finger) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday.
Though officially listed as limited, per the Denver Post, Sanders -- who has been dealing with a left high ankle sprain -- "was pretty much a full participant" at practice Wednesday, with the wideout indicating that he is hopeful with regard to his chances of playing Sunday night against the Patriots.
