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.

Okposo scored the game-winning goal during Friday's overtime win against Detroit.
It was Okposo's second consecutive game with a tally, and he's improved his season-long totals to 14 goals, 30 points and 111 shots through 44 games. He's likely capable of padding the scoresheet more frequently going forward, and a strong finish to the campaign isn't out of the question now that Buffalo is healthy up front.

It was O'Reilly's fourth two-point showing in January, and the pivot is now up to nine goals, 27 points and 105 shots through 35 games. While he's a solid scorer, there isn't much production in some of the peripheral categories, as the 25-year-old pivot has just six PIM and six hits all season. Still, in the heart of his prime and locked into a top offensive role, O'Reilly's one of the more reliable secondary contributors in both the real and virtual game.
