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.

Hassan Whiteside is expected to replace Chris Andersen (elbow, back) in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

Jan 27 - 6:02 PM

Chris Andersen (elbow, back) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. Milwaukee.

With Andersen unavailable, Hassan Whiteside will likely slide into the starting lineup and he'll make for a fantastic plug-and-play option in daily leagues coming off a monster triple-double on Sunday.
Jan 27 - 5:58 PM

Luol Deng (sore calf) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

Danny Granger could slide into the starting lineup with Deng sidelined, but with averages of just 4.7 points on 41.7 percent shooting with the starting unit this season, there's not much to like here. James Ennis will also see some increased opportunity, but he's been far too inconsistent to rely upon in most leagues. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will be tasked with more responsibilities on offense, and they look like the best plays in daily leagues with Deng unavailable.
Jan 27 - 5:51 PM

Luol Deng (sore calf) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

Deng was listed as doubtful earlier, so an upgrade to a game-time decision can be viewed as a positive thing. However, if he is forced to sit, Danny Granger and James Ennis would likely split his minutes, though neither guy offers much upside. Dwyane Wade however would be tasked with more responsibilities on offense if Deng is out, and he'd make for the best play in daily leagues.

Dwight Howard tweaked his right ankle during Tuesday's practice, and remains a game-time decision for Wednesday's game vs. Dallas.

"It wasn’t as bad as when it happened, but I had to sit out of practice, so we’ll see how it feels [Wednesday]," Howard said. "Hopefully I can play, but if not, we still have a great chance to win the game." While Joey Dorsey would draw the start if Howard sits, Josh Smith and Donatas Motiejunas would see the biggest increase in value.
Jan 27 - 5:07 PM

Paul Pierce (toe) did not participate during shootaround, and he is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

Pierce has been dealing with a nagging toe injury since Dec. 4, and with the Wizards set to play a team owning a record of 12-33, there's a good chance the veteran is rested tonight. If he sits, Otto Porter could slide into the starting lineup, with Martell Webster and Rasual Butler seeing some increased opportunity. Stay tuned.
Jan 27 - 4:46 PM

John Wall (sore left Achilles) did not participate during shootaround, and is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

This is the first time we're hearing of any Achilles soreness for Wall, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. It's worth noting that Wall has yet to miss a game since the 2012-13 season, but with the Wizards going up against a hapless Lakers squad, there's certainly a chance Washington gives their franchise-player some rest tonight. Andre Miller would likely draw the start if Wall is forced to sit, with Bradley Beal also seeing some increased opportunity.
Jan 27 - 4:40 PM

Updating a previous report, Nick Young is currently undergoing an MRI on his sprained right ankle, and is looking unlikely for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

We'll have a better idea of Young's status once the results of the MRI are released, but at this point it would be shocking if he's able to play. The Lakers are currently calling his injury a moderate sprain, and if he's forced to sit, Wayne Ellington, Jordan Clarkson, and Jeremy Lin would all stand to benefit. Stay tuned.
Jan 27 - 4:12 PM

Nicolas Batum did some shooting during Tuesday's practice, and said that his wrist has improved to the point that he's mostly pain-free.

Batum remains questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavs, but it appears that he is going to try and give it a go. Owners will need to check back closer to Wednesday's tip-off for an official update, but if he's ruled out, look for Wesley Matthews, Damian Lillard, and LaMarcus Aldridge to pick up the slack.
Jan 27 - 4:05 PM

Nick Young (ankle) will not play against the Wizards on Tuesday.

He sprained his ankle in practice on Monday and the Lakers will allow him to heal. Young made just 33.3 percent from the field over the last month and remains one of the worst players inside of the arc. He's not a must-own player and his efficiency has dropped without Kobe Bryant. With Swaggy out, the Lakers will use some two-point guard sets -- they used those for 11 minutes on Sunday -- and Wayne Ellington will also have some more run in a bad matchup. Jordan Clarkson might benefit the most.
Jan 27 - 3:32 PM

Updating a previous report, Kevin Martin (wrist) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics.

Martin was able to resume shooting workouts on Monday after having fluid drained from his surgically-repaired wrist last week, but he will remain sidelined for Wednesday's game. He's likely going to be eased back into the rotation upon his return, so owners will need to remain patient. However, he still offers enough upside to be worth holding onto in most leagues.
