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.
Brogdon was held to four points (1-10 FG, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 30 minutes Saturday during a 109-97 loss to Miami.
Brogdon struggled with his shot, missing on a ton of decent looks including all three of his three-point attempts. He's slumping to start the new year, shooting just 40.7 percent from the field. However, his fantasy value is still tracking upwards, since he continues to play more minutes every month (21.1 in November, 31.6 in January). Brogdon's field-goal attempts also continue to grow (6.8 in November, 11.0 in January).
Howard scored 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-7 FT) while adding 15 rebounds, three assists and a block in 32 minutes during Saturday's 110-93 win over the 76ers.
After managing only nine total rebounds in his prior two games, Howard was able to dominate the glass against the Sixers with Joel Embiid (knee) getting the night off. Howard's now recorded six double-doubles in his last nine games, and 27 on the season.
Thon Maker got the start in place of Parker, probably just so coach Jason Kidd can continue to tinker with his rotations before the playoffs roll around. The experiment didn't pay off, however, as Parker seemed to be out of a rhythm despite totaling close to his season average of 34 minutes. His shot selection looked a little forced, and he had a tough time finishing around Hassan Whiteside. Parker will probably return to the starting lineup against the Rockets on Monday, since Maker didn't show off anything even remotely impressive.
