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.
Terrence Ross has served as the Raptors' sixth man throughout the season, but because coach Dwane Casey prefers to keep him in his familiar role with the second unit, Powell is the leading candidate to join the starting five with DeMar DeRozan (ankle) out for at least the next two games. Powell, who has previously made seven starts this season while filling in for a resting DeMarre Carroll or as part of a small-ball arrangement, is averaging 13.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.1 three-pointers, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steal in 28.4 minutes per game in those contests. He could have some short-term appeal in deeper leagues for as long as DeRozan is out.
Bell spent the entirety of the preseason with the Buccaneers, but a concussion suffered in the final week led to his release. The 24-year-old has yet to record a reception in the league.
Zeller is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors due to a bruised quad, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
The injury occurred during Monday's loss to Washington, in which Zeller played 35 minutes and finished with 13 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three steals before fouling out. He's battling some significant discomfort Tuesday, but Charlotte will wait until shootaround Wednesday to reevaluate the big man.
