LaMarcus Aldridge is not on the injury report for Friday against the Nuggets.

The Spurs sat him out for the final two games of the first half due to knee soreness, but apparently it was just as a precaution. With Kawhi Leonard (quad) likely out for the year, Aldridge should be ready for a strong second half, assuming he's active.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Nerlens Noel (thumb) could return soon.

He will be wearing a splint upon his return, but there is still no target date. the Mavs haven't really been very forthcoming with updates on Noel with the most noteworthy update this year coming when he had a hotdog at halftime earlier this season. He's only a luxury stash in deep leagues.

Ricky Rubio (hip) went through practice on Thursday and is questionable to play against the Blazers on Friday.

That's good news after Rubio did not practice on Wednesday. Rubio missed the last three games of the first half, which allowed Royce O'Neale to thrive in the starting lineup. Even if Rubio returns, O'Neale still has a chance to produce useable value in 12-team leagues. Rubio was also red hot before his injury on Feb. 9.

Paul Millsap (wrist) went through most of practice for the second straight day on Thursday.

He's expected to return at some point next month and hopefully it's closer to the first. Millsap has been working on his conditioning for almost a month now, so he may be able to hit the ground running once he's healthy. He should be owned in all fantasy leagues.
Feb 22 - 3:42 PM

Will Barton (illness) is dealing with strep throat and is on antibiotics.

He is still likely to play on Friday and hopefully he's not contagious anymore. Barton could be limited on Friday and hopefully we get an update on his status at shootaround on Friday morning.
Feb 22 - 3:39 PM

The Wizards are planning to sign Ramon Sessions to a 10-day deal.

He's not going to be available tonight and the Wizards won't really need him with Tim Frazier expected to be the backup, but Sessions should be available for Friday. Sessions played 82 games with the Wizards back in the 2015-16 season and spent part of the 2014-15 year with them, too. He won't have fantasy value.
Feb 22 - 3:14 PM

Chandler Parsons (illness) was not at practice on Thursday.

Coach J.B. Bickerstaff did say that Parsons' absence isn't related to his knee. Parsons made his return to the lineup on Feb. 14 before the break, but the Grizzlies will almost certainly be giving him days off. They start with a back-to-back on Friday and Saturday. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 22 - 3:03 PM

Tyreke Evans was back at practice on Thursday.

After an excused absence from practice on Wednesday, that should mean he's going to play against the Cavs on Friday night. Although, the Grizzlies do have a back-to-back set, so maybe they do take it easy on him.
