Ben Simmons had a "minor foot procedure" to stimulate bone growth and accelerate healing.

He had bone marrow injected in his effective fracture area, but the 76ers said he will resume training by the end of the week. Simmons has already been ruled out for the season, but he will continue to have scans on his foot every month. For now, he's expected to be ready for the summer league.

Joel Embiid has some swelling in his left knee and is out indefinitely.

Embiid is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday afternoon, so maybe we'll get a better update on his timetable after that. He was originally ruled out through Mar. 3, but it sounds like he's looking at an extended absence. The playoffs are basically out of the question for Philly, so the shut-down risk here is huge. The outlooks for Jahlil Okafor and Richaun Holmes have improved with this report.

J.J. Barea (calf) will not play on Monday vs. the Heat.

Barea has been practicing with the Mavericks and coach Rick Carlisle said he could return later this week. The Mavs are giving Yogi Ferrell a lot of burn right now and they signed Quinn Cook out of the D-League this week, so the Mavs will be able to ease Barea back into the rotation. He's more of a low-end pickup because of the restrictions he will likely have.

Deron Williams' status for Monday's game vs. the Bucks is still up in the air.

He's fully expected to sign at some point Monday, but he wasn't at the morning shootaround. If D-Will is cleared in time to play, he could be tossed into the fire right away as LeBron James (illness) and Kyle Korver (knee) are considered questionable. To be clear, D-Will is not a great fantasy pickup in Cleveland.

Kyle Korver (knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Bucks.

Korver was at the morning shootaround getting up some shots, so he's probably closer to probable. Whatever the case, we'll have a better idea after the pre-game warmups tonight. LeBron James is also questionable with an illness, while it's unclear if Deron Williams (trade) will be cleared in time. Iman Shumpert and Jordan McRae could see a bump in minutes if Korver is unable to play.

Luis Scola - F/C - Nets

The Nets have officially waived Luis Scola.

Scola was playing on an expiring contract, but this will give him the chance to join a contender in what could be his final season in the NBA. With Scola no longer in the mix, Justin Hamitlon should have a few more minutes coming his way. Expect the Nets to sign another big with their open roster spot.

LeBron James (illness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Bucks.

If LeBron misses his second game in a row, Richard Jefferson will draw another start and will be a low-end streaming option, but Kyrie Irving will be the big winner -- Irving's usage rate without LeBron on the floor is 41.6. LeBron didn't attend shootaround, so he will likely end up being a game-time call.

Tim Hardaway Jr. will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Celtics.

Thabo Sefolosha will move back into his role as the starter, so THJ's minutes will take a hit in the second unit. THJ is averaging 11.3 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.6 3-pointers in 21.8 minutes per game as a reserve this season, but we still think his minutes will be closer to 25 after a strong February. He's a hold until we see how this plays out.
