Josh Huestis has been assigned to the Thunder's D-League affiliate.
The second-year forward has only made it onto the court one time this season, for a grand total of seven minutes.
Terrence Jones reportedly had preliminary talks with the Celtics, but a deal is unlikely.
Boston would not be a good landing spot for Jones at all, so hopefully, nothing becomes of this report. Jones is in a contract year, so chances are he'll want to put himself in a situation where he can prove his worth. However, until he's actually in the "advanced discussion" phase of a new contract signing, he can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Fred Hoiberg practiced with the starters and the reserves during Monday's practice.
Payne came off the bench in his Chicago debut on Saturday, but it looks like Hoiberg is at least toying with the idea of bringing him into the starting five. However, with three other point guards on the roster, it'll be tough for Payne to get enough minutes to make an impact in standard leagues.
Victor Oladipo (back) was limited at Monday's practice.
He's missed two games in a row, but coach Billy Donovan said he's progressing well. The Thunder didn't provide much of an update, but we'll know more after Tuesday's shootaround. If Dipo misses another game, Alex Abrines looks like the clear beneficiary after logging 35 minutes on Sunday vs. the Pelicans with 13 points and three 3-pointers.
Paul Zipser (ankle) did not practice on Monday and will miss Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.
This will be the rookie's seventh game in a row on the shelf. With Zipser out, Denzel Valentine will continue to soak up more minutes on the wing and is averaging 13.0 points, 4.0 3-pointers, 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals over his last two games.
Michael Carter-Williams (patellar tendinitis) did not practice on Monday and will miss Tuesday's game vs. Denver.
He still has some pain in his knee and doesn't have a timetable to return right now. With MCW expected to miss more time, Cameron Payne will get a chance to earn a larger role and Denzel Valentine will continue to be relevant in deeper leagues. MCW is a drop candidate in most leagues.
Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said Brandon Jennings will sign with the Hornets.
SVG coached Jennings in Detroit last season and said he spoke with his agent on Monday morning after the Knicks released him. It's possible that another team could grab Jennings off waivers, but SVG sounded pretty confident that the PG would end up in Charlotte. The Hornets just signed Briante Weber to a 10-day deal, but Jennings would be the clear favorite to back up Kemba Walker in Charlotte.
Al Jefferson (dental pain) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.
Pacers coach Nate McMillan said Big Al is still not feeling well after an emergency root canal last week. McMillan called Jefferson doubtful, while the team is listing him as questionable. If Big Al misses his third straight game, Rakeem Christmas will be looking at minutes in the teens off the bench.
