According to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, John Wall (knee surgery) "no longer needs crutches and shows no visible hitch in his walk."

It's been two weeks since his surgery, and while John Wall didn't reveal much, he hinted that he's still hoping to return between the 6- to 8-week mark. "I haven’t really tried to get back on the court yet so, just doing the little things. And I haven’t started running yet. So whenever I get to that point I can kind of start grasping stuff and understanding what level I’m at but right now it’s between six to eight weeks," he said. "It might be longer but I don’t know. I haven’t got to that point." We'll continue to track his progress every step of the way, but it's possible he returns in time to help his owners in the fantasy playoffs.

Tiago Splitter announced his retirement from the NBA on Sunday.

He was hoping for another job before the season, but the right opportunity never came. Since then, Splitter has been working as a reporter. The 33-year-old Brazilian has career averages of 7.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.6 blocks.

LeBron James led his All-Star team to a spirited win on Sunday with 29 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, four 3-pointers and one steal in a game-high 31 minutes.

LeBron earned All-Star MVP honors and his team played surprisingly aggressive defense down the stretch, including a suffocating double-team against Stephen Curry at the end of regulation. In the process, LeBron passed Oscar Robertson for fifth-most assists in All-Star game history, and he's just two assists behind Bob Cousy. King James wasn't messing around tonight, and we can only hope this sets the tone for future All-Star games.

Anthony Davis scored 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting during Team LeBron's feisty win on Sunday, adding two rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes.

Davis injured his groin early in the Pelicans' game on Wednesday, but it appears to be a non-issue. He looked fine during the All-Star game and there was no suggestion that he'd sit out with the injury, so owners can anticipate him being fully rested and ready after the break. The Pelicans play two games in Week 19, followed by a three-game Week 20. Davis also deserves kudos for wearing injured teammate DeMarcus Cousins' jersey to begin this year's All-Star game.
Feb 18 - 11:32 PM

Joel Embiid (ankle) finished his first All-Star game with 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting, two 3-pointers, eight rebounds and two blocks.

Embiid missed Philly's final game before the break due to swelling in his right ankle, and he admitted that he wasn't feeling "so good" during Friday's Rising Stars game. He added one steal and one assist in just 20 minutes tonight, and moved well while he was on the court, so we anticipate him being ready to roll vs. Chicago on Feb 22.

Jimmy Butler didn't play during Sunday's All-Star game.

Butler leads the NBA in minutes per game (37.3) and the Wolves played on Thursday, the most recent day games were played prior to the break. "This Timberwolves season is very, very important to me," Butler said after the game. It sounds like Butler requested that coach Mike D'Antoni leave him out of the rotation, and neither the Wolves nor Butler's fantasy owners will complain that he's getting extra rest.

Paul George said he's not interested in playing for "multiple teams" throughout his career.

"The decision I make will ultimately be to build something," said George of his upcoming free agency. "So, this next decision, whatever it is, is to make sure I'm there for a duration." PG-13 will be one of the biggest names to hit the open market this summer, and with L.A. roots and the Lakers having the ability to sign two max players this summer, Los Angeles could be an option. However, OKC is hoping that a deep playoff run will entice him to re-up there. We're in for a fun offseason.

Joel Embiid said his ankle is feeling better and that he's aiming to be the MVP during Sunday's All-Star Game.

"On Sunday, I expect to go harder," Embiid said after playing just eight minutes in the Rising Stars game Friday. "I’m going for that MVP. Guys better make sure they find me because I’m looking to have a good game." He admitted that his ankle "didn't feel so good" on Friday, but he's doing better and his fantasy owners and 76ers fans are just hoping he comes out of this game healthy.
