Dwyane Wade (knee) has hired Tim Grover to help him with his conditioning.

Grover is the founder and owner of Attack Athletics and is known for training Michael Jordan. He has been training Kobe Bryant, but with Bryant's permission, Grover flew to South Florida in order to begin working with Wade. The Palm Beach Post points out that it's "no secret" Wade's left knee has been bothering him. It's worth noting that Grover was "largely credited with getting Wade back into premium shape in 2008."

Ryan Anderson said that while he is making progress in his recovery from his MCL sprain, there is currently no official timetable set for his return.

"Recovery has been a process. I’m really working a lot on getting mobility back, just walking," Anderson said. "The past week, I’ve made big strides, as far as getting out of a big knee brace. My flexibility is a lot better, as far as rotation. I haven’t tried anything on the court yet." Anderson went on to say that he has been limited to pool work and running on an arc trainer, and we'll continue to track his progress closely. Alexis Ajinca has been playing quite well lately, and he’ll be the primary beneficiary for as long as Anderson is sidelined.

Celtics' head coach Brad Stevens said that Avery Bradley suffered a badly sprained left elbow, and he will likely remain sidelined for Boston's upcoming three-game road trip.

Bradley isn't even traveling with the team, so this news isn't completely shocking. With Bradley sidelined, Isaiah Thomas will likely step up as the go-to guy on offense, so expect him to get a substantial boost in value. Bradley's injury will also open up more floor time for guys like Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, Jonas Jerebko, and potentially James Young. However, Isaiah remains the guy with the most upside.

Updating a previous report, Kyle Lowry said he will suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

His return to the lineup will likely send Greivis Vasquez back to the bench, and his value will take a sizable hit with the demotion. Lowry has sat out the past three games to get his body right, so hopefully the time off will result in him playing like he was to begin the season. He'll draw a favorable matchup against the Hornets tonight, and is a must-start guy every time he's in uniform. Get him active.

Mario Chalmers is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

It's unclear exactly what ailment he's dealing with at the moment, but if he's unable to go, Shabazz Napier would see extended minutes off the bench. Tyler Johnson could also have some more opportunity for minutes in the rotation.
Mar 6 - 12:07 PM

Chris Andersen (illness) was withheld from Friday's shootaround, and he's being listed as questionable for tonight's game against the Wizards.

If Andersen is unable to go, Hassan Whiteside is going to get all the minutes he can handle, and Udonis Haslem may be forced to play some extended minutes.
Mar 6 - 12:06 PM

Luol Deng (thigh) did not go through shootaround, and he is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Washington.

If Deng is unable to go, James Ennis, Michael Beasley, and Henry Walker will all have the opportunity to see some increased minutes. Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic would also be asked to carry the offensive load, and they would make for quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues. Stay tuned.

James Jones has emerged as a role player in Cleveland's rotation, and over the past four games he has put in averages 9.8 points and 2.8 three-pointers through 22 minutes of action.

Jones has seen his role increased with Shawn Marion (hip) sitting on the sidelines, but he really doesn't do much aside from drain 3-pointers. It also should be noted that his value could take a hit once Marion does return to the lineup, so while Jones is worth a look as a 3-point specialist in deep leagues, know that his time as a rotation player in Cleveland could be short-lived.
Mar 6 - 10:55 AM

Robert Covington (elbow) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

Covington has been forced to spend the past two games on the sidelines after suffering a right elbow bruise during Sunday's game against Indiana. If he is again forced to sit JaKarr Sampson will start, but with averages of just 6.8 points and 1.1 steals per game with the starting unit, he's not a viable option in most leagues. Jason Richardson and Isaiah Canaan will likely do the heavy lifting on offense.

Magic head coach James Borrego said he was unsure if Evan Fournier (hip) and Luke Ridnour (hamstring) will be available for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

If Fournier is unable to go it will be his fourth straight game on the sidelines, and with Luke Ridnour (hamstring) also looking doubtful, Victor Oladipo and Tobias Harris will again be asked to log heavy minutes. Stay tuned.
Mar 6 - 10:04 AM

Head coach Steve Clifford said that Mo Williams will remain with the starting unit upon Kemba Walker's (knee) return.

"We’re going to play them together," Clifford said. "We need to get [Walker] back as soon as we can, and then we’ll make an adjustment on the fly to play those guys together." With Williams set to remain with the starting unit, Gerald Henderson will likely head to the bench where he'll embrace a sixth man role with the team. Lance Stephenson is currently behind Henderson in the rotation, so he could find difficulty leaving the bench when Walker does return.
Mar 6 - 9:16 AM

Kemba Walker (knee) is hopeful he'll be able to return for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

When Walker does return, head coach Steve Clifford said that he will pair him and Mo Williams in the back court, a move that would likely send Gerald Henderson back to the bench. Walker let it be known that he's excited to work alongside Williams in the starting unit. "He makes so many plays," Walker said of Williams. "He’s so smart; he knows when to shoot and when to pass. You can see it in his numbers; he’s had some huge assist games."
