Jordan Bell (left ankle) went through a full-contact scrimmage after Wednesday's practice.

Bell injured himself on Jan. 17 when he landed awkwardly on his left leg, and the Warriors announced on Feb. 2 that he would miss at least two more weeks. He will not play vs. the Clippers on Thursday, but his participation in a full scrimmage suggests that he's getting very close.

Iman Shumpert's left foot plantar fasciitis flared up Wednesday after some on-court work on Tuesday.

Shumpert doesn't have a clear return date, and the Kings have no obvious incentive to play the veteran swingman -- with an 18-39 record, they're among the teams expected to tank for draft-lottery position. Shumpert wasn't a fantasy asset with the Cavaliers this season and he's nowhere near standard-league value.
Feb 21 - 10:07 PM

Tyreke Evans and Chandler Parsons were granted excused absences from the Grizzlies' practice on Wednesday.

It's unclear why either player was away from the team. There's no reason to think it will prevent them from playing in the Grizzlies' first game after the break, as they host the Cavs on Friday, so Evans' owners can tentatively keep him locked into active lineups.
Feb 21 - 9:45 PM

Matthew Dellavedova (sprained right ankle) went through some light workouts on Wednesday.

According to beat writer Matt Velazquez, Dellavedova had "[a] little bit of movement heading into each shot ... Looking confident, comfortable on his sprained ankle." Malcolm Brogdon (quad) isn't expected back until late March or early April, so the Bucks would get a big lift if Dellavedova can return later this month. Leave him on the waiver wire outside of the deepest leagues.

Frank Mason (plantar fascia) is listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. the Thunder.

The Kings' rookie guard had some nice stretches prior to his injury, and he faces less competition for minutes with George Hill gone and the Kings emphasizing young players. Most fantasy owners can just keep an eye on him over the next few weeks.
Feb 21 - 9:33 PM

Skal Labissiere (shoulder) is probable for Thursday's game vs. the Thunder.

Labissiere was ruled out 2-3 weeks as of Feb. 1, and it sounds like his shoulder responded well to extended rest during the All-Star break. The 21-year-old has enough rest-of-season upside to be worth a look if you need a big man in competitive leagues.
Feb 21 - 9:31 PM

John Henson (sore right hamstring) went through a light practice on Wednesday and hopes to increase his activity during Thursday's practice.

The Bucks return to action in Toronto on Friday, and we should have a better sense of Henson's status before they depart for their one-off road game. If Henson is forced to sit out, Tyler Zeller and Thon Maker will do the heavy lifting at center.

Kawhi Leonard (right quad tendinopathy) has been medically cleared to return for the Spurs, but "he has elected against returning to the active roster," according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Gregg Popovich said on Wednesday that he'd be "surprised" if Leonard returned this season, although it's unclear if that includes the postseason. "We only have X number of games left in the season, and he's still not ready to go," Popovich said. "If by some chance he is [ready to play], it's gonna be pretty late into the season ... I'll be surprised if he gets back this year." The revelation that Kawhi has been medically cleared adds to the confusion surrounding his ailment, and he could reportedly play if "he can manage the pain of the injury." Most fantasy owners should already be resigned to a lost season.
