The Thunder are expecting Enes Kanter (arm) to play against the Lakers on Friday.

Kanter himself said it's a secret on his status, but he also said his arm feels "pretty good" on Thursday. The addition of Taj Gibson should actually hurt Kanter a little big because the Thunder do use a lot of Kanter next to Steven Adams. Go ahead and pick up Kanter, but he's likely more of a late-round guy in standard leagues.

Lavoy Allen (knee) is questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

He's been a fine fill-in power forward with Thaddeus Young (wrist) out for most of this month. If Allen and Young can't go, Kevin Seraphin should get another chance as the starter.

Thaddeus Young (wrist) and Lavoy Allen (knee) are questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Friday.

The Pacers were unable to add anyone at the deadline to help their depth at the four or on the wing. Young has been out since his injury back on Feb. 23 due to sprained shooting wrist, so it could take some time for him to get going again. If Young and Allen can't play, Kevin Seraphin should get big minutes again.

Brandon Jennings (Achilles) arrived at practice early on Thursday and is fully expected to play against the Cavs.

He did not play in the final game before the break, so it was likely precautionary. If Courtney Lee (illness) can't play, Jennings could get some added minutes next to Derrick Rose.

With the acquisition of C Nerlens Noel, the Mavericks could decide to start Yogi Ferrell, Wesley Matthews, Harrison Barnes, Dirk Nowitzki and Noel going forward, sending Seth Curry back to the role of sixth man.

This isn't set in stone and Rick Carlisle said there was a "less than 50 percent chance" it will happen, but it does make sense on paper. Maybe Carlisle will continue to use Barnes at PF and bring Dirk off the bench, or maybe he'll start Dirk at center and bring Noel off the bench. Regardless of which way he goes with his lineup, Curry will still be a big part of the rotation either way.
Feb 23 - 4:11 PM

Brandan Wright (personal) will not play vs. the Pacers on Friday.

Zach Randolph should pick up a few more minutes with Wright out of commission, but there aren't any big repercussions here since Wright is averaging 13.9 minutes this season. He's day-to-day and could return as soon as Sunday's game vs. Denver.
Feb 23 - 4:11 PM

T.J. Warren is headed for an increased role with the Suns.

Excluding the up-and-down G-League guys and injuries, he's technically the only small forward on the roster. The Suns could shift Jared Dudley to the three now just because of their roster construction, they could sign someone to a 10-day deal, or maybe even Derrick Jones Jr. backs up Warren. Despite his struggles since December, Warren should trend up as an asset in standard leagues. He needs to play better on defense.
Feb 23 - 4:07 PM

Bobby Portis should see a significant increase in playing time following Thursday's trade that sent Taj Gibson to Oklahoma City.

Portis was one of the biggest winners at the trade deadline, just by virtue of staying put. He looks like the probable starting PF and is coming off a few strong performances before the break, including a 19-point, eight-rebound game last Thursday. His efficiency has improved this season and Chicago could turn him loose, so he's a reasonable pickup if you need a free agent forward.
