With NBA commissioner David Stern in attendance on Tuesday morning, the Warriors formally announced their intention to move the franchise to a San Francisco waterfront arena after their lease at Oracle Arena expires in 2017.

Owners Joe Lacob and Peter Guber, San Francisco mayor Ed Lee, Warriors legends Nate Thurmond and Al Attles, team executive Jerry West, head coach Mark Jackson and center David Lee were also in attendance for the press conference which was hosted by Ahmad Rashad. The move is scheduled to take place in 2017, with San Francisco providing the land and the Warriors paying to repair the crumbling piers, and privately financing the arena project. The cost of repairs is estimated at $75 to $100 million.

Lauri Markkanen (back) will play Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

Markkanen will be returning from a one-game stint on the sidelines, which should shift Nikola Mirotic back to the second unit where he'll fight for the reserve minutes with Bobby Portis. Markkanen is safe to fire up in all season-long settings, but with a tough matchup against Utah, he's not the most attractive target in daily leagues.

Nicolas Batum (elbow) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

Batum was being listed as doubtful on Tuesday and said on Sunday that his elbow was "not even close to 100 percent," but apparently he's willing to fight through the pain. We likely won't get official word on his status until just prior to tip-off, but if he is able to play tonight, Jeremy Lamb will head back to the bench and Dwayne Bacon could drop from the rotation entirely. Stay tuned.
Dec 13 - 12:43 PM

Anthony Davis (left adductor) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Bucks.

Davis said he was feeling good after shootaround, and that he "should be able to go" against Milwaukee barring a setback, but ultimately this decision will be made by Alvin Gentry and the Pelicans' medical staff. AD will need to go through his pregame routine before an official decision is made, but if he is able to get back out there, Darius Miller will return to the bench, and DeMarcus Cousins won't be quite as active on offense.
Dec 13 - 12:37 PM

Andre Roberson (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game in Indiana.

Billy Donovan hasn't yet announced who will start in his place, but Alex Abrines has been starting over the past three games with Paul George and Roberson missing time, so it could be him again. However, the Thunder lost on Monday with Abrines at the two, so perhaps Donovan wants to switch things up. Either way, with Carmelo Anthony, PG-13 and Russell Westbrook all active, there won't be much opportunity for the fill-in starter.
Dec 13 - 12:30 PM

Will Barton (lower back contusion) is probable to play Wednesday in Boston.

Barton exited Tuesday's blowout win over the Pistons during the closing minutes of the fourth quarter with the back issue, but it looks like that was just a precautionary move by Denver. Season-long owners can probably plan on having him available tonight, but just be sure to check back closer to tip-off for official confirmation on his status.
Dec 13 - 12:15 PM

Nikola Jokic (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Head coach Mike Malone indicated on Tuesday that Jokic was "getting closer," and he was moving around fairly well during Tuesday's shootaround, so perhaps he'll be able to get back out there tonight. We likely won't get official word on his status until after he goes through his pregame routine, but if Jokic is able to get back out there, Mason Plumlee will return to the bench and Kenneth Faried's minutes will take a hit. Stay tuned.
Dec 13 - 12:14 PM

Joe Johnson (wrist) participated during shootaround and will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Bulls.

The Jazz are reportedly expecting Johnson to get back to the court this week, and with him getting through shootaround, it seems there's a good chance he'll be returning from his two-month layoff tonight. With Rodney Hood (ankle) and Johnson getting healthy, Alec Burks' minutes could start trending towards the lower-20s.
Dec 13 - 12:09 PM

Aaron Gordon (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

Gordon is in the final stages of the concussion protocol testing and was able to take contact during Wednesday morning's shootaround, so perhaps he'll be able to get back out there for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers. With him out tonight, Mario Hezonja will be in line for another start and Nicola Vucevic will see a nice bump in usage.
Dec 13 - 11:53 AM

John Wall (knee) is "very likely" to play Wednesday against the Grizzlies, according to sources of Candace Buckner of The Washington Post.

David Aldridge reported on Tuesday that "all signs point" towards Wall getting back to the court for Wednesday's game, and Wall posted a picture to his Instagram account this morning that read "the wolf is awoke," so things are trending in a very positive direction here. There won't be a shootaround with this being the second game of a back-to-back set, so we likely won't get official confirmation until just prior to tip-off, but it looks like Tim Frazier will be heading back to the bench tonight.

Arron Afflalo (back) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.

The Magic are saying that Afflalo has a 50-50 shot of getting on the court tonight, but according to Orlando beat reporter Josh Robbins, Afflalo wasn't quite as optimistic following shootaround. If Afflalo isn't able to get out there, the Magic will be very thin on the wings, which would open up a lot of minutes for guys like D.J. Augustin, Shelvin Mack, Jonathon Simmons and Mario Hezonja, with Simmons offering the most upside. Check back closer to tip-off for another update.
Dec 13 - 11:17 AM

Seth Curry (leg) remains without an official timetable to return and acknowledged that surgery is an option that's still on the table.

"It's like a couple week by couple week situation. It's a tricky situation," said Curry. "There's a chance [I'll need surgery], yeah. The path I'm on right now, the MRI shows it's gotten a little better. But there's a chance (he could need a procedure). It's a tricky situation and hard for me to say. It's very frustrating. Recovery-wise, I get out there and work out and feel OK, and it'll bother me the next day." With no clear return date in sight, Curry belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
