    • Lou Williams LAC SG
      Clippers' Lou Williams: Questionable for Tuesday
      23m ago

      Williams (hamstring) is questionable to play in Tuesday's game against the Raptors, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

      Williams left in the first half of Monday's overtime win over the Suns due to a left hamstring soreness and did not return. Chances are the veteran ends up being a game-time decision Monday, but should he be ruled out, Avery Bradley, Patrick Beverly and Milos Teodosic would likely all be called upon for additional minutes.

      Robinson (foot) is unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Sunday, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

      Robinson is set to miss his 12th straight contest with a right foot strain. His next chance to return will come Thursday in San Antonio.

      Raptors' Kawhi Leonard: Game-time decision Tuesday
      33m ago

      Leonard is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Clippers due to a bruised right hip, Tim Bontemps of The Washington Post reports.

      Leonard logged 37 minutes in Sunday's loss to Milwaukee, so it's unclear as to when he picked up the injury. With head coach Nick Nurse away from the team to deal with a personal matter, assistant coach Adrian Griffin stated that Leonard would play in Los Angeles 'to the best of his knowledge', per Michael Grange of SportsNet.ca. Despite Griffin's comments, Leonard's availability won't be confirmed until closer to tip.

    • Elie Okobo PHO PG
      Suns' Elie Okobo: Heads to G League
      1h ago

      Okobo was assigned to the Northern Arizona Suns on Tuesday, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

      Okobo has logged considerable playing time over his team's previous seven games (27.1 minutes per contest), so this move comes as a bit of a surprise, especially with Devin Booker (hamstring) ruled out and Jamal Crawford (knee) questionable for Tuesday. It's certainly possible Jawun Evans will be called up from the G League given their current lack of depth at point guard.

    • Jamal Crawford PHO SG
      Suns' Jamal Crawford: Game-time decision Tuesday
      1h ago

      Crawford (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

      Crawford was sidelined Monday night because of left knee soreness, and his status for the Suns' upcoming contest remains uncertain. Clarity surrounding Crawford's availability should come closer to tipoff.

      Suns' Devin Booker: Won't play Tuesday
      1h ago

      Booker (hamstring) will be unavailable for Tuesday's game against the Spurs, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.

      Booker is set to miss his fifth straight contest while on the mend from a left hamstring strain. De'Anthony Melton should continue to draw starts at point guard until Booker can return to action. His next opportunity to take the court will come Thursday against Dallas.

    • Mo Bamba ORL C
      Magic's Mohamed Bamba: Sits out after rules violation
      1h ago

      Bamba didn't play in Monday's 101-76 loss to the Mavericks while serving a one-game suspension for violating team rules, Tim McMahon of ESPN.com reports.

      Coach Steve Clifford didn't reveal the suspension beforehand, so Bamba's failure to get off the bench likely came as a surprise for those that had been relying on him. It's not expected that Bamba will face any further discipline stemming from the violation, so it's expected he'll re-enter the rotation Thursday against the Bulls. Over his 26 appearances this season, Bamba is averaging 6.6 points (on 49 percent shooting from the field), 4.6 boards, 1.3 blocks and 1.1 assists in 17.0 minutes per contest.

    • Aron Baynes BOS C
      Celtics' Aron Baynes: Questionable vs. Wizards
      2h ago

      Baynes (ankle) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

      Baynes has missed the last two games while dealing with a sprained left ankle, and with Al Horford nursing a knee injury, Daniel Theis and rookie Robert Williams have been holding things down at the center position for the last couple of outings. The Celtics should provide an update on Baynes' status for Wednesday following shootaround in the morning.

    • Al Horford BOS C
      Celtics' Al Horford: Questionable for Wednesday
      2h ago

      Horford (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

      Horford has missed the last two games with the lingering injury, which coach Brad Stevens labeled Monday as patellar tendinitis. His status should be updated again following Boston's shootaround in the morning, but with Horford and fellow big man Aron Baynes (ankle) currently questionable, Daniel Theis and rookie Robert Williams could be holding down the center position again Wednesday in Washington.

    • Tristan Thompson CLE C
      Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Out 2-to-4 weeks
      3h ago

      Thompson (foot) has been ruled out for 2-to-4 weeks, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

      Thompson suffered from a sprained left foot in Monday's game against the Bucks and did not return, and while X-rays did come back negative, the big man will still face a lengthy absence. With Thompson out of the lineup, look for Larry Nance to see the biggest boost in playing time, with Ante Zizic also likely to eanr more minutes in a reserve role.

    • Ante Zizic CLE C
      Cavaliers' Ante Zizic: DNP vs. Bucks
      4h ago

      Zizic did not see the floor in Monday's loss to Milwaukee.

      The big man was cleared to return from a knee injury back on Friday against the Kings, and while he played five minutes off the bench in that contest, he's now been a DNP in two straight games. Zizic has had a few separate stints in the regular rotation, but he can be safely ignored in almost all fantasy formats for the time being.

    • Bam Adebayo MIA C
      Heat's Bam Adebayo: Double-doubles in close loss
      5h ago

      Adebayo managed 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-2 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks across 29 minutes in the Heat's 108-105 loss to the Lakers on Monday.

      Adebayo once again filled in admirably for Hassan Whiteside (personal), posting the second double-double of his three-game starting stint. The 21-year-old big man has proven a steady source of points and rebounds during his extended opportunity, and his performances could certainly serve to carve him out additional minutes over what he'd previously been seeing off the bench once Whiteside returns.

      76ers' Jonah Bolden: Back from G League
      3h ago

      The 76ers recalled Bolden from the G League's Delaware Blue Coats on Tuesday.

      Bolden will participate in the 76ers' practice Tuesday, but it's unclear if he'll remain with the team through their next game Wednesday against the Nets. The rookie forward has seen only light action over his seven appearances at the NBA level this season but has been a double-double machine in his four outings at Delaware, averaging 15.5 points, 12.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block in 33.2 minutes per game.

      Spellman (hip) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic

      While it was reported Monday that Spellman would travel with the team to Dallas, the Hawks will still elect to keep the rookie on the sideline while he nurses a hip injury. This will mark Spellman's third straight absence, but given that he is on the road trip with the team, he will have a chance to play Friday in Boston.

      Rockets' Isaiah Hartenstein: Returns from G League
      3h ago

      Hartenstein was recalled from the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers on Monday, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports.

      After he fell out of the rotation Dec. 3 against the Timberwolves, Hartenstein was sent to the G League to pick up playing time, missing two of the Rockets' contests along the way. The rookie will likely dress for Tuesday's contest against the Trail Blazers, but with both Clint Capela and Nene Hilario expected to be available, Hartenstein may not see the floor if the game is competitive throughout.

    • Kelly Olynyk MIA PF
      Heat's Kelly Olynyk: Strong off bench in loss
      5h ago

      Olynyk amassed 15 points (6-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal across 24 minutes in the Heat's 108-105 loss to the Lakers on Monday.

      Olynyk drew even with Dwyane Wade for second on the team in scoring, posting his sixth double-digit point tally in the process. His accuracy from the field was an especially welcome sight, considering he'd shot just 15.4 percent on Saturday night versus the Clippers. Olynyk's recent surge and consistency have been encouraging, as he'd posted single-digit point totals in nine of the 14 games prior to his current productive stretch.

    • Kyle Kuzma LAL PF
      Lakers' Kyle Kuzma: Explodes offensively in win
      6h ago

      Kuzma generated 33 points (14-22 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist across 40 minutes in the Lakers' 108-105 win over the Heat on Monday.

      The spotlight was on the final meeting between LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, but Kuzma actually paced all scorers on the night. The second-year pro's point tally was his best since Oct. 22, and it served as his second highest of the season overall. Kuzma has been locked in with his shot since the calendar flipped to December, posting a success rate of 50 percent or better in four of the first five contests of the month while draining multiple threes in all five games as well. Moreover, he continues to be a steady and impressive force on the boards, hauling in between seven and 12 rebounds in each of the last seven games.

    • Draymond Green GS PF
      Warriors' Draymond Green: Solid line in return

      Green (toe) managed seven points (3-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt), 10 rebounds, seven assists and one block across 29 minutes in the Warriors' 116-108 win over the Timberwolves on Monday.

      Green didn't quite see his normal allotment of playing time, but coach Steve Kerr essentially made good on his pregame declaration that the veteran forward wouldn't be on an official minutes restriction. Green looked more or less like himself in returning from an 11-game absence, with both his rebounding and assist totals leading the Warriors on the night. He'll look to continue rounding back into form against the Raptors in a big interconference showdown Wednesday night.

      Heat's Derrick Jones Jr.: Shines on defensive end
      1h ago

      Jones tallied eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT), 14 rebounds, three steals and three blocks across 29 minutes Monday in the Heat's 108-105 loss to the Lakers.

      The Heat had all of their core rotation players available Monday with the exception of center Hassan Whiteside (personal), but the packed bench didn't prevent Jones from logging significant run. For the second straight game, Jones pulled down double-digit boards while making a big impact in the defensive categories. Given that Jones failed to leave the bench in five of the Heat's previous eight games, it's difficult to invest in the third-year forward outside of deep formats, but his strong form in back-to-back outings should at least keep in the rotation for now.

      This will be the second appearance with the Stars for Niang in a little over a week after he posted 18 points, eight rebounds and seven assists last Monday against Rio Grande Valley. Niang, along with rookie Grayson Allen, will be available for the Stars' game Tuesday against the Austin Spurs.

      Porter is day-to-day with a right knee contusion, Ben Standig of NBC Sports Washington reports.

      Porter suffered the injury during the first half of Monday's game against the Pacers and did not return. His status for Wednesday's game against the Celtics remains murky at this point, but things should clear up once he tests his knee out during warmups. If Porter can't play, Kelly Oubre and Jeff Green would likely benefit the most.

      Hayward (illness) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

      After being sidelined for Monday's game against the Pelicans due to an illness, Hayward is on track to miss his second straight contest. Semi Ojeleye saw extended minutes off the bench in Hayward's absence Monday, and should Hayward be ruled out as expected Wednesday, Ojeleye would be in line for a similar workload in Washington.

      Dekker made his Wizards debut Monday night against the Pacers and finished with two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3PT) in 10 minutes.

      Acquired from the Cavs last week as part of a three-team deal, Dekker joined the Wizards on Monday and made his return to action after missing several weeks with an ankle injury. The Wisconsin product figures to be a regular part of the rotation for the shallow Wizards, but, barring an injury to Jeff Green, Kelly Oubre and/or Markieff Morris, he's unlikely to play enough minutes to be fantasy-relevant in standard formats.

      Oladipo (knee) took part in 4-on-4 work at practice Tuesday.

      Oladipo's return to the practice floor is an encouraging development, though it's still very much unclear when he could be back on the court in a game setting. The All-Star guard said his status for Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks is yet to be decided, though it would be somewhat of a surprise if he's cleared to play after just one practice, given the long layoff. Assuming Oladipo's knee responds well Wednesday morning, the more realistic scenario would be a return Friday in Philadelphia or Sunday against New York.

      Irving was held out of Monday's game against the Pelicans while nursing a minor shoulder injury, but it looks like the solo day off was all the point guard needed. With Irving in line to return Wednesday, Terry Rozier, who played 32 minutes as a starter in his absence, will return to his regular role off the bench in Washington.

      The Wizards had a film day Tuesday instead of traditional practice, so it's unclear exactly how healthy Wall is feeling at this time while he nurses bone spurs in his left heel.

      Ball checked off every box on the stat sheet in trademark fashion, posting his third double-digit scoring effort over the last four games in the process. The second-year point guard's shooting struggles persisted, however, as he's now drained under 40 percent of his attempts in four of five December contests. Additionally, Ball was particularly active on the boards Monday, with his seven rebounds serving as his highest total over the last six games.

      Monday night was McConnell's fifth game of the year eclipsing the double-digit point threshold, in large part due to his two three-pointers in the game, which matches his total from all season. While he doesn't shoot very much three-pointers, McConnell has seen a recent uptick in minutes, averaging 25 minutes over the last six games, and could be in line to take more shots.
