    • Jeff Teague MIN PG
      Timberwolves' Jeff Teague: Listed as questionable for Thursday
      10m ago

      Teague (foot) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

      After sitting out of Minnesota's last game on Tuesday, Teague hinted that his foot injury could cause him to miss multiple games. More information should come out on his status following the team's shootaround on Thursday morning. If Teague is unable to go, Derrick Rose will likely continue to start with Jerryd Bayless as his backup.

      16m ago

      Lillard (hand) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Suns, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

      Lillard apparently suffered a right hand contusion during or after Thursday's game against the Thunder. If he's unable to go, look for Seth Curry to see increased run.

      Pistons' Ish Smith: Ruled out Wednesday
      16m ago

      Smith (groin) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Keith Langlois of the Pistons' official site reports.

      This is no surprise, as Smith came into the game doubtful with a groin injury that's caused him to miss the past two games. His absence should cause for Jose Calderon to see a larger role. Smith's next opportunity to play will be Friday against Dallas, and he should be considered questionable for that contest at this time.

      Pistons' Andre Drummond: Ruled out Wednesday
      38m ago

      Drummond (concussion) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

      The Pistons wanted Drummond to go through warm-ups before making a decision on his status. He should be considered questionable for the Pistons' next game, Friday against Dallas. In his absence, Zaza Pachulia will continue to start.

      Thomas will draw the start Wednesday against the Rockets, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

      With Luke Kornet out of the starting lineup with an ankle injury, Lance Thomas will join the starters in his place. It's unclear if he will remain with the starters for the duration of Kornet's absence. While with the starters, Thomas, who is averaging 15.2 minutes per game, should see a larger role.

      Clippers' Montrezl Harrell: Back to bench Wednesday

      Harrell will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

      Harrell had started the past two games, averaging 14.5 points per contest, but will return to his normal bench role for match up purposes. It's unclear if Harrell will return to the starting role for Friday's game against the Bulls, but either way, he's been the most productive big-man for the Clippers this season, averaging 15.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.4 blocks in 25.7 minutes per game.

      Pistons' Andre Drummond: Will be game-time call
      1h ago

      Drummond (concussion) remains a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Pelicans studio host Daniel Sallerson reports.

      Drummond as able to make it through shootaround in the morning, but the team is apparently still evaluating the center after a concussion kept him out of the last two games. With about 75 minutes until tip-off, Drummond could end up being close to a true game-time call. If he's ultimately held out, coach Dwane Casey confirmed that Zaza Pachulia would make another start in his place.

      Rockets' Nene Hilario: Won't play Wednesday
      2h ago

      Hilario (undisclosed) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

      It's unclear why Hilario won't play Wednesday as he hasn't been reported to have any injuries or personal issues that would limit his play. The move may have something to do with the addition of Kenneth Faried to the roster and more will come out over the next couple games as to how coach Mike D'Antoni will decide to proceed with his rotation. Hilario hasn't played a huge role this season and is averaging just 4.1 points in 13.7 minutes per game.

    • Aron Baynes BOS C
      Celtics' Aron Baynes: Gets spot start Wednesday
      2h ago

      Baynes will start at center Wednesday against the Cavaliers, Celtics' broadcaster Sean Grande reports.

      With Al Horford out of the line due to rest purposes, Baynes will be thrust into the starting lineup for the 10th time this season. Given Horford's absence and the fact that Baynes is not going to be limited in any fashion Wednesday, the big man could be in line for a significant increase in usage against Cleveland.

      76ers' Joel Embiid: Questionable for Wednesday
      2h ago

      Embiid is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs due to back tightness.

      Once again, Embiid is on the injury report due to lingering back tightness, but he is yet to miss anytime with the injury. The big man will likely end up being a game-time decision once again, but there has been nothing to suggest that he will be sidelined given his recent availability and workload. Expect an update on Embiid to come closer to tip-off.

      Ayton (ankle) did not practice Wednesday but is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Trail Blazers, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.

      With coach Igor Kokoskov noting there is a "slim chance" of the rookie playing Thursday, we should expect Ayton to miss a third straight game. He currently has no official timetable for a return, making him day-to-day. In his stead, while Richaun Holmes (foot) has also been sidelined, Dragan Bender has started the past two games for the Suns, averaging 12.5 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 29.5 minutes,

      Gortat will return to the starting lineup after filling a reserve role for the past two games. Regardless of his role, Gortat's struggled to produce this year, recording 5.1 points and 5.6 rebounds in just 16.2 minutes per game.

      Rockets' Kenneth Faried: Starting Wednesday
      2h ago

      Faried will start Wednesday's game against the Knicks, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

      In what will be his second game played with the Rockets this season, Faried will be getting the starting nod over the absent Nene Hilario (rest) on Wednesday and will likely get the bulk of minutes at the center position. In his debut with the team Monday, Faried dropped 13 points and six rebounds in 23 minutes of action.

      Gordon (back) will play and start in Wednesday's game against the Nets, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.

      As expected, Gordon will be back in the starting lineup Wednesday after a two-game absence due to a lower back injury. With Gordon taking part in a full practice Tuesday, he is not expected to be facing a minutes restriction of any kind in Brooklyn. With his return, Jonathan Simmons is expected to return to his role off the bench.

      Johnson's status for Wednesday's contest is now in jeopardy, as he will probably need one game to recover from his migraine. If Johnson is indeed inactive Wednesday, Derrick Jones may likely receive the start in his place.

      McGruder will come off the bench in Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

      McGruder went scoreless in eight minutes against the Celtics on Monday and now will come off the bench for the first time this season after starting 44 games. His minutes have slowly been dwindling, so it's not surprising to see head coach Erik Spoelstra switching things up. Tyler Johnson will get the start Wednesday in place of McGruder.

      With Jimmy Butler (wrist) out again Wednesday, Brewer will get his second straight start after an impressive outing in Monday's blowout win over the Rockets. Brewer played 33 minutes and recorded 11 points, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in that time. After being tasked with defending James Harden on Monday, Brewer will likely take on the assignment of guarding DeMar DeRozan to start out Wednesday.

      James (groin) has been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Timberwolves, Bill Oram of The Athletic reports.

      While James was a partial participant in practice Wednesday, he's still building back strength in his left groin and will remain out Thursday night. James has not played since Christmas Day, and though he appears to be getting closer, it's still very much unclear when he'll be back on the floor. For now, the team appears to be handling his status on a game-to-game basis. Looking ahead, the Lakers are off Friday and Saturday before home matchup with the Suns on Sunday.

      Huerter (neck) has been ruled out of Wednesday's matchup with the Bulls, KL Chouinard of Hawks.com reports.

      Huerter was doubtful coming into the game, so his second consecutive absence with a sore neck doesn't come as much of a surprise. The rookie out of Maryland has been a major piece in the rotation over the last two months, and he's averaging nearly 38 minutes per game in the month of January. His next chance to play will arrive Saturday in Portland.

      Butler (wrist) will be inactive for Wednesday's game against San Antonio, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

      Originally listed as questionable heading into the matchup Wednesday, the Marquette product will ultimately be missing his second straight game due to lingering right wrist soreness. In addition, it will also be the 10th contest overall this year in which Butler will be sidelined for, bringing his total to 33 regular-season games lost from the start of the 2017-18 campaign. With Butler inactive for Wednesday's outing against the Spurs, teammates Corey Brewer and Wilson Chandler are likely candidates to make the most of the minutes voided by Butler.

    • CJ McCollum POR SG
      Trail Blazers' C.J. McCollum: Reaches new January high in scoring

      McCollum posted 31 points (11-23 FG, 7-12 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one block across 38 minutes Tuesday in the Trail Blazers' 123-114 loss to the Thunder.

      The 31 points were McCollum's most of January and a welcome development for fantasy managers after he averaged just 15.4 points on 40 percent shooting from the field over the past five games. While McCollum lit up the Thunder from distance, he hasn't ranked among the league's elite snipers for much the season. His 2.1 triples per game are his fewest since 2014-15 and his 35.3 percent accuracy rate is the lowest of his career.

      Huerter missed Monday's game against the Magic due to a sore neck, and it appears the issue is likely to keep him off the court again Wednesday. Taurean Prince figures to draw another start in Huerter's stead.

    • Devin Booker PHO SG
      Suns' Devin Booker: Ejected from Tuesday's loss
      8h ago

      Booker scored 14 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added four assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block before being ejected in the third quarter of Tuesday's 118-91 loss to the Timberwolves.

      The Suns were already trailing by 20 points by the time Booker was ejected, so the early dismissal probably didn't hurt his stat line too significantly. Officials tossed Booker from the game after he exchanged words with Minnesota's Gorgui Dieng after being on the receiving end of an elbow to the face. Both Dieng and Booker had to be restrained by security personnel when the two were sent to the locker room, so it's possible discipline could be in store for the two players. A fine is more likely for Booker than a suspension.

Prior breaking his hand which has held him out since Dec. 27, the veteran point guard was averaging 24.4 minutes per outing. Rondo will likely be a game-time decision Thursday.
