Avery Bradley (sports hernia) is officially questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Warriors.

Bradley is listed on the injury report with "athletic pubalgia" which is another term for a sports hernia. Clippers coach Doc Rivers suggested that Bradley's status for each game will be a toss-up depending upon how he feels, and this should be the last straw for most fantasy owners. Whenever he does miss games, Austin Rivers and Lou Williams should be ready to pick up the slack.

Paul Millsap (wrist surgery) could return in "two weeks ... [but] it could be four weeks," according to coach Mike Malone.

The Nuggets expect more clarity after Millsap visits doctors next week. He went through parts of practice on Wednesday and a return in early- or mid-March sounds plausible, so make sure he's not still floating on your waiver wire. Malone suggested that Millsap might come off the bench initially, as he works himself back into game shape, but it shouldn't take long before he's starting alongside Nikola Jokic.

The Cavaliers are signing G Marcus Thornton to a 10-day contract.

The 6'4" guard has been playing in the G League for the Canton Charge this season, averaging 18.8 points, 3.5 triples, 3.0 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.1 blocks in 36.0 minutes. Even if he manages to earn some minutes, he won't be a fantasy asset.

Ricky Rubio (left hip soreness) didn't practice on Wednesday.

This is worrisome news for Rubio's fantasy owners. He was surging before getting hurt on Feb. 9 and we were optimistic that he'd be ready after the break, but he's still receiving treatment on his hip. Owners should make contingency plans for the weekend, but for now we're calling him questionable for games on Friday (vs. Portland) and Saturday (vs. Dallas). If he can't suit up, Donovan Mitchell will have the ball in his hands more often than not, while Royce O'Neale and Joe Ingles also stand to benefit.
Feb 21 - 7:38 PM

Mason Plumlee (calf) said he's available to play vs. the Spurs on Friday.

Plumlee won't have any limitations after resting through the All-Star break. He was ruled 2-4 weeks after getting hurt on Jan. 29, so this is in line with initial expectations. With Nikola Jokic healthy and Paul Millsap (wrist) approaching a return, however, Plumlee is best left on the wire outside of deep leagues.
Feb 21 - 7:33 PM

Shane Larkin (sore right knee) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Larkin did some running and cutting, so he's progressing, but it's not a great sign that he still can't practice after the All-Star break. The Celtics haven't provided many details about the injury but coach Brad Stevens expects Larkin to go through portions of Thursday's practice. We're considering him questionable for games on Friday and Saturday.
Feb 21 - 7:27 PM

Coach Kenny Atkinson said he expects to see more lineups with Spencer Dinwiddie and D'Angelo Russell.

"I do like having two guards that can really handle the ball," Atkinson said. "Now, you’ve got to look at the other pieces and how they fit. Someone’s got to be out. One of our good wing players has got to be out if they’re going to play." This quote does sound like it's possible Russell gets a starting nod, which could bump Allen Crabbe or DeMarre Carroll. Dinwiddie should be busy regardless.

Rudy Gay (heel) will return on Friday night against the Nuggets.

The Spurs get some good news after coach Gregg Popovich said Kawhi Leonard (quad) could miss the rest of the season. Gay's heel injury has been a problem for him throughout the season and he's been out since Dec. 28. He'll likely have a minutes cap upon his return, but he's worth a look in 12-team leagues.
