    Celtics' Daniel Theis: Probable with sore foot
    1h ago

    Theis is considered probable for Tuesday's game against Memphis due to a sore foot.

    Kings' Richaun Holmes: Ruled out Tuesday
    1h ago

    Holmes (hip) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Holmes also missed Sunday's loss to the Rockets, so there's not much reason to play him in what's ultimately a meaningless contest for the Kings, who have been eliminated from playoff contention. Alex Len started in Holmes' place against Houston.

  • Aaron Gordon ORL PF
    Magic's Aaron Gordon: Doubtful to play Tuesday
    4h ago

    Gordon (hamstring) is considered doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

    Gordon is likely headed toward a third straight absence, but the Magic won't take any chances with the No. 8 seed locked up. Evan Fournier (illness) is also doubtful, and Terrence Ross left the bubble, so the Magic will be shorthanded on the wing.

  • Jerami Grant DEN PF
    Nuggets' Jerami Grant: Questionable with sore knee
    4h ago

    Grant is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Lakers due to a sore right knee.

    The game doesn't tip off until 9:00 p.m. ET, so the Nuggets may let Grant go through a pregame workout before determining his status. If he's ultimately held out, Paul Millsap and Michael Porter Jr. would stand to benefit.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL PF
    Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo: Ruled out vs. Raptors
    5h ago

    Antetokounmpo (mouth) will not play in Monday's game against Toronto.

    The reigning MVP is apparently battling a toothache, but it's also noteworthy that Milwaukee is heading into the first half of a back-to-back set, so that's likely a factor in the decision to hold Antetokounmpo out. Expect the likes of Marvin Williams and Ersan Ilyasova to step into larger roles Monday as the Bucks take on the No. 2 team in the Eastern Conference.

  • Montrezl Harrell LAC PF
    Clippers' Montrezl Harrell: Reports to NBA bubble
    7h ago

    Harrell (personal) relayed Monday via a post on his personal Twitter account that he has returned to the NBA bubble in Orlando.

    Harrell hasn't been with the Clippers since mid-July, when he left the bubble in mid-July to be with his ailing grandmother, who eventually passed away. Now that he's back in Orlando, Harrell will have to complete a mandatory quarantine period before he's cleared to join the team for workouts. Due to the training time Harrell missed while tending to the personal matter, he'll likely need at least a couple of practices to regain conditioning, making it uncertain if he'll be available for either of the Clippers' final two seeding games. Per Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN.com, coach Doc Rivers has essentially already ruled Harrell out for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, but he left the door open for the big man to potentially play Friday versus the Thunder.
