Gerald Green sat out Thursday's practice with a sore hip.

Feb 23 - 12:47 PM

The Raptors have reportedly made it a "priority" to trade for either Tyson Chandler or P.J. Tucker, according to Jordan Schultz of the Huffington Post.

Toronto has been tied to Tucker for a while now, but they might not want to give up a conditional first-round pick to get him. There hasn't been much interest in Chandler around the league, probably because the 34-year-old center is owed a guaranteed $26.6 million over the next two seasons, so the Raptors might be able to obtain him for a pittance. Alex Len is a nice stash in the event that Chandler does leave Phoenix.

The Knicks and Timberwolves "remain engaged in trade talks" toward a deal with Derrick Rose and Ricky Rubio, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

This is pretty much a non-update here, but it's worth a mention that ESPN is following up on The Vertical's report of the Knicks and Wolves talking. For some reason, the Wolves look like they're trying to fight for the eighth spot and get some assets, as well.

Joel Embiid (knee) said he's expecting to play some minutes next to Richaun Holmes and Jahlil Okafor.

There could also be some Robert Covington at the four, as well. With Dario Saric as the only healthy power forward, the 76ers may have to get creative today. Holmes played a lot of power forward last year, but almost all of his minutes this year have been at center. He is worth a look in deeper leagues with Embiid on the shelf for at least four more games.

Jahlil Okafor went through all of practice on Thursday.

Even with Nerlens Noel in Dallas, the 76ers are still likely looking at a deal for Okafor. The 76ers were terrible with Okafor next to Joel Embiid (knee), but they may have to look at that combo with only Dario Saric at the four right now. Additionally, Embiid being hurt should give Okafor some short-term value.

Joel Embiid (left knee) is expected to miss the Sixers' next four games, following the recommendation of the team's doctors.

Embiid went through a full practice on Thursday but the Sixers are being extremely cautious, as expected. If he returned after four games he could play on March 3rd, but there are no guarantees -- it's worth noting that that game is the first of a back-to-back set. Embiid did say he had some swelling on Thursday morning, which obviously isn't good, but for now it sounds like Philly is just playing it safe. His owners just have to hold him in the hopes of a return in early March.

Bojan Bogdanovic could play on Friday even without a practice session.

The trade is official and he should be active, but his playing time should still be unclear. Bogdanovic will add some much needed bench scoring to the Wizards, but his numbers are certainly going to drop on his new team. He has lost most of his fantasy value.

Trade candidates Terrence Jones and Omer Asik (illness) were both missing from Pelicans shootaround on Thursday prior to tonight's game against the Rockets.

Jones is technically dealing with a thumb injury but this is more likely a trade holdout, as he's one of the players everyone expects to be moved today. Asik is listed as doubtful tonight due to his illness, but it would not be at all surprising to see both players traded in the next few hours.
