Caris LeVert (illness) will not play against the Warriors on Saturday.

Feb 25 - 4:11 PM

Al-Farouq Aminu (left knee) is probable for Sunday against the Raptors.

He looks like he's going to be back after missing his last two games. The Blazers only had Noah Vonleh as their only other power forward, so they had to shift Meyers Leonard and Moe Harkless out of position in the last two games. If healthy, Aminu should be looking at close to 30 minutes and would be worth a look in standard leagues.

Coach Luke Walton said Jordan Clarkson needs to work on his strength to be a better defender.

"We ask him to guard multiple positions," Walton said about Clarkson's defense. "Sometimes the guy he is guarding is bigger. But as far as his explosiveness and aggression and competitive level, I think he’ll be a good defender the older he gets and stronger he gets." Clarkson did a fine job on Russell Westbrook, who made just 4-of-18 from the field on Friday. Clarkson should trend up now that Lou Williams is gone, so give him a look to see if he can get it going again.

The Lakers and Jose Calderon are exploring their buyout options, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Lakers have no reason to play Calderon as they look to play their younger guys. According to the report, the Warriors and Rockets look to be the favors to sign him assuming the buyout goes through. The Lakers will be leaning more on D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson and Brandon Ingram.

Victor Oladipo (back) only went through a light practice on Saturday.

Coach Billy Donovan said he wouldn't be able to play in a game today, which means he's questionable at best for Sunday against the Pelicans. Alex Abrines was big time on Friday with a career-high 19 points in 29 minutes, so he stands to benefit the most again. Plus, Andre Roberson slid over to the two more, which opened up some run for Doug McDermott. Oladipo owners should just sit tight.
Feb 25 - 2:40 PM

Al Jefferson (dental pain) is listed as questionable Saturday vs. Miami.

Jefferson missed Friday night's game due to the same issue. Surprisingly, it was Rakeem Christmas, not Kevin Seraphin, who soaked up Jefferson's minutes off the Pacers bench. Christmas scored four points, grabbed five rebounds and blocked a shot in 14 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday. It will be interesting to see if Christmas gets the call again on Saturday if Big Al is unable to suit up.

Kevin Durant (left hand contusion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Nets.

Durant injured his left hand in a fall during the first half on Thursday night. However, X-rays confirmed it was only a contusioon and Durant was able to finish the game in fine fashion. And, before Durant owners get too nervous, it is important to note that the Warriors are playing the NBA's worst team, the Nets, on Saturday. Coach Steve Kerr may simply be using the hand injury as an excuse to give Durant a night off. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson should see extra shots on Saturday, while some combo of Andre Iguodala, Patrick McCaw, Ian Clark and David West will divvy up KD's minutes.
Feb 25 - 1:55 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Sixers.

This certainly isn't surprising, as Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Friday that Porzingis would be out several days due to the ankle injury KP suffered on Thursday night. The Knicks next game is Monday vs. the Raptors. It is possible that Porzingis is available for that contest. If KP does not play Saturday, Lance Thomas will likely draw the start in his place. Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Kyle O'Quinn would likely see extra run as well.
