Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) practiced with the team on Tuesday.

Porzingis has missed two straight games after spraining his ankle in the Knicks first game back after the break. However, KP has been steadily improving and appears to be on pace to play Wednesday in Orlando. Lance Thomas will get bumped back to the bench when Porzingis returns.

Willy Hernangomez (sprained left ankle) did not practice Tuesday.

The Knicks play Wednesday night in Orlando. We will have to await an update from the team to see if Willy is on track to play vs. the Magic. If he is unable to suit up, Kyle O'Quinn would likely draw the start at center. Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) was able to practice on Tuesday. Assuming KP plays Wednesday, he could also see some time at center.

ESPN is reporting that the Jazz and George Hill are in active discussions on a contract extension in an attempt to strike a deal before Tuesday's 11:59 p.m. ET deadline.

Once the clock strikes midnight, Hill can not sign an extension and will become a free agent on July 1. The best offer Utah can make Hill is for $88.3 million through the 2019-20 season, which would be a three-year, $74.7 million extension plus $13.6 million this season. Hill has put up impressive numbers this season but has had trouble staying healthy, having appeared in just 34 of 59 games.

Gerald Green (heel) is listed as out for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavs.

This is a just a game notes designation, so it's by no means definitive. We should have a more formal update from the team after shootaround on Wednesday. Either way, the fantasy impact is minimal, as Green is averaging under 12 minutes per game this season.

Brandan Wright (personal) will be active and available for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

Wright had missed the last two games for personal reasons. Only a limited fantasy impact here, as Wright is averaging fewer than 14 minutes per contest this season. Zach Randolph will see a bit less court time with Wright active.

Coach Tyronn Lue told reporters that Tristan Thompson has been bothered by tendinitis in his knee, a claim which Thompson later stated that was untrue.

"He's been going through some tendinitis all year, his knee has been bothering him a little bit all year," Lue said. "He's finally starting to come around and he's feeling good." When asked to comment, Thompson claimed he was fine. "No, no tendinitis," Thompson said. "I'm good. Not sure what coach Lue's talking about. Nothing more than the usual bumps and bruises. I'm good." Thompson has the longest current games-played streak in the NBA, so don't expect him to miss a game anytime soon.

John Wall is "battling a cold" but appears likely to play Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

We should have an update from the team prior to tip off on Tuesday evening. Wall has played extremely well over the last month. He has recorded a double-double in 11 straight games and is averaging 22.5 points and 13.2 assists over that stretch.

Garrett Temple (hamstring) is hoping to return to the Kings lineup by the end of next week.

Temple suffered a partial tear of his left hamstring back on Jan. 31. "I feel like I’m progressing well. I’ve had no setbacks" Temple said. "I’m going to go about a week after I feel 100 percent. If I come back sometime beginning of next week or middle of next week, I think I’d be happy with that." The Kings have plenty of depth on the wing with Tyreke Evans, Buddy Hield and Langston Galloway now in the mix. Temple can be left on waivers in standard leagues.
