Reggie Bullock (illness) did not practice on Wednesday.

Hopefully, Bullock will be well enough to play in Friday's game against the Celtics. If Bullock can't suit up, that would mean more minutes for Luke Kennard, Stanley Johnson and maybe Langston Galloway.

Rodney McGruder (leg) practiced on Wednesday.

Coach Erik Spoelstra wouldn't commit to McGruder playing on Friday against the Pelicans. McGruder had surgery on his leg for a stress reaction back in October and he's yet to make his season debut. He had a chance to be the opening-night starter, so McGruder could find himself back in the rotation. He likely won't have fantasy value, though.

Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Friday against the Pelicans.

So that means the All-Star break likely wasn't enough for Olynyk's shoulder to get right after the injury on Feb. 5. Olynyk played a whopping 40 minutes in the game prior to injury and he was taking minutes away from Hassan Whiteside. Olynyk being out should open up a few extra minutes for Whiteside, James Johnson and Bam Adebayo.

Reggie Jackson (ankle) has been cleared to do light running in his rehab.

He is still likely a couple weeks away from his return, which makes sense based on how he's only cleared for light running. Jackson was expected to miss 6-8 back on Dec. 27, so it sounds like he'll be closer to eight weeks. While he's out, Ish Smith will get most of the minutes with Jameer Nelson likely to help out in the second unit.

Emmanuel Mudiay is expected to start for the Knicks on Thursday.

Coach Jeff Hornacek wouldn't reveal all of his starters, but he indicated Mudiay would be one of them and Mudiay himself talked about taking over. "I’m not going to take it for granted," Mudiay said. "I came in as a lottery pick so I was kind of handed the spot and stuff like that. So the fact that I’m in that position again, it’s a blessing." The Knicks have played Mudiay next to Frank Ntilikina a bunch this month, and that should still continue. Mudiay isn't the most efficient player, but he should have opportunity to post numbers. If you're OK with bad percentages, Mudiay is worth a look in standard leagues.

Mavs owner Mark Cuban has been fined $600,000 for public statements detrimental to the NBA, the league announced.

"Cuban's comments, which concerned his perspective on the team's competitive success this season, were made during a podcast that posted on Feb. 18," according to the league's statement on Wednesday.
Feb 21 - 3:44 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said Avery Bradley (groin) is "50/50" to play on Thursday against the Warriors.

Additionally, Rivers said Bradley's injury is going to be a season-long issue, and his availability right now appears to be 50/50 every night going forward. Bradley had a groin injury just before he was traded to the Clippers, and now it looks like it may not go away. His fantasy owners may not want to deal with this issue and just drop him, especially with how poorly he's played this season.
Feb 21 - 2:10 PM

Jonathan Isaac (ankle) is set to practice with Orlando's G-League team on Thursday, and he will play for the G-League team on Friday.

Isaac will have a minutes limit on Friday, but the fact that he's suiting up for the G-League team implies that he should be back in action in no time. That said, he'll be fighting for minutes with the likes of Aaron Gordon and Mario Hezonja, so it's tough to see him making much of a difference in most leagues this season.
