Omer Asik (illness) will not play on Sunday vs. the Thunder.
He wouldn't be in the rotation if he was healthy. The Pelicans have to be disappointed that they couldn't shed his terrible contract at the deadline.
Willie Reed (ankle) is day-to-day and will not play on Monday vs. Dallas.
AN MRI on Sunday morning revealed that he has right ankle bursitis, so Saturday's initial diagnosis of a right calf strain by the Heat was way off. Reed will not travel with the team, so we likely won't get another update until Tuesday. With Reed out, the Heat could use James Johnson as their backup center.
The Hornets will sign Briante Weber to a 10-day contract.
He was released by the Warriors on Saturday night, so the Hornets aren't wasting any time here. Weber will compete with Brian Roberts for the backup PG role behind Kemba Walker, but there's no fantasy appeal here. Weber has career averages of 3.1 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.9 steals.
The Mavericks have signed Quinn Cook to a 10-day contract.
Cook will have a chance to back up Yogi Ferrell until J.J. Barea (leg) returns in the near future. He's safe to leave on the wire in most formats for now.
The Raptors recalled Bruno Caboclo from the D-League on Sunday.
He has no shot at cracking the rotation following the arrival of P.J. Tucker.
Gerald Green (heel) will not play on Sunday vs. the Pistons.
Green was previously ruled out for this game back on Friday, so this is a reminder. With Green on the shelf during Friday's game vs. the Raptors, James Young entered the rotation and played 12 minutes. There are no real fantasy implications here.
Ben Bentil has signed a 10-day deal with the Mavericks.
The No. 51 pick in the 2016 Draft will provide some depth behind Dirk Nowitzki at the four, but he's not a lock to be in the rotation. He's not on the fantasy radar right now.
Blazers head coach Terry Stotts praised Jusuf Nurkic after he scored 12 points with 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks in 34 minutes against the Magic on Thursday.
"I thought he was very effective in a lot of areas defensively on [Nikola] Vucevic," Stotts said. "I thought he was solid and offensively he made a lot of good plays. We were able to play through him out on the perimeter and in the post. I thought he had a very solid game." Nurkic said that he's "finally" happy in Portland after a rough ending to his time in Denver, and he added that this is the first time in two years that he's having fun again. Stotts also said he was surprised with Nurkic's playmaking ability, so the Blazers could run some offense through him like they did with Mason Plumlee. Nurk Alert is the man in the Portland frontcourt and should be added in most formats.
