The Magic have "focused on persuading (Dwight) Howard to remain in Orlando," sources tell Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld.

Here we go again. When it finally looked like we may have some movement in the Dwightmare saga, ESPN reported that the Magic could be planning to hold onto Howard for the foreseeable future. Now, GM Rob Hennigan will travel to Los Angeles this week to "meet face-to-face with Howard and deliver a presentation designed to persuade Howard to return to the Magic." This could all simply be posturing by Orlando to get a better deal, but it now sounds like we're now back to exactly where we have been all along on the Dwight Howard trade front: stuck in neutral.

Danny Green (groin) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

Green missed Saturday's game in Phoenix in what could be described as a precautionary move, but he should be back in his regular role on Tuesday night. Kawhi Leonard (quad) is also probable to make his regular-season debut against the Mavs, and once he's fully up to speed, there won't be quite as much opportunity for Green on offense.

George Hill (personal) was a full participant during Monday's practice.

Hill missed Sunday's game against the Raptors for personal reasons, but he should be good to go for Tuesday's game against the Suns. That said, Hill hasn't been worth owning this year as he's locked into a value-killing timeshare situation in Sacramento, and his minutes will likely continue to decline as we get further into the season.
Dec 11 - 5:54 PM

Willie Cauley-Stein (back) got in a full practice on Monday and will be a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup with the Suns.

Head coach Dave Joerger said that WCS "looked good" and even hit the floor a few times during Monday's practice without issue, so it sounds like he'll play on Tuesday night, but we likely won't get official confirmation until just prior to tip-off. With Cauley-Stein back in action, there will be less minutes available for Skal Labissiere and JaKarr Sampson.
Dec 11 - 5:51 PM

Cody Zeller is set to undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee on Tuesday and will miss the next six weeks of action.

Frank Kaminsky (ankle) will be returning from a two-game absence on Monday, and he figures to be one of the primary beneficiaries while Zeller is on the sidelines, and there will also be more opportunity for Marvin Williams. Zeller was essentially nothing more than a low-end, shot-blocking specialist in deep leagues prior to going down, so there's no incentive to hang onto him through this injury in any format.
Dec 11 - 5:38 PM

Kawhi Leonard (quad) practiced on Monday and is hopeful to play on Tuesday in Dallas.

The Spurs haven't officially cleared him for Tuesday's game, but he's being listed as "probable," so at this point it would be surprising if he didn't play. He'll likely be working with a minutes limit early on, and considering how much time he's missed, it could be a full month before he really starts going.
Dec 11 - 5:27 PM

John Collins (shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

Collins is hopeful to get back to the court for either Tuesday's game in Cleveland or Thursday's home game against the Pistons, and it looks like he's a lock to get back on the court sometime this week. Once he's back, Ersan Ilyasova or Miles Plumlee will shift back to the bench and there won't be as many minutes available for Luke Babbitt and Tyler Cavanaugh. Owners can expect to get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround.
Dec 11 - 4:25 PM

Jahlil Okafor said he plans to make his Brooklyn debut on Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

Okafor practiced with the Nets for the first time on Monday, and while he hasn't discussed what role he'll have with the club with head coach Kenny Atkinson, it would be shocking if he didn't quickly find himself in the starting five in Brooklyn. He also said that he'll be playing with a chip on his shoulder and that he's very excited to share the court with D'Angelo Russell (knee), as the two grew up playing together. He's in a great spot for minutes, so he's worth a speculative add everywhere.
Dec 11 - 3:54 PM

Damian Lillard said that his right ankle is still "a little sore," but he plans to play Monday vs. Golden State.

Lillard tweaked his ankle during the second half of Sunday's loss to the Rockets but didn't miss any game-time action, and in typical Lillard-fashion he'll just fight through the pain. Feel free to get him active, as he has a history of going off when playing in his hometown of Oakland.
Dec 11 - 3:46 PM

Milos Teodosic (foot) got up shots during Monday's shootaround.

He's officially being listed as questionable for Monday's game, and will likely be a game-time call, but there's a very realistic chance he could be returning to the court tonight's matchup with the Raptors. He hasn't played since October, so we wouldn't expect him to be logging heavy minutes out the gate. That said, he'll be in an excellent position to produce once he's fully up to speed, so he shouldn't be sitting on any waiver wires anywhere.
Dec 11 - 3:21 PM

Rick Carlisle said that Seth Curry (leg) will remain on the sidelines until at least December 18.

This rules Curry out for this week as the Mavs continue to push back his timetable, and there's just no incentive for them to get him back on the court until he's clearly 100 percent. He'll likely be brought along slowly, so he's not the most appealing stash in most 12-team leagues.
Dec 11 - 3:13 PM

John Wall (knee) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, but head coach Scott Brook wouldn't commit to having him available for Tuesday's game in Brooklyn.

This is the second report we have of Wall going through a full-contact practice without issue, and while he's being listed as "out" in the game notes for Tuesday's matchup in Brooklyn, Brooks playing coy with his availability indicates that he could be cleared. We should get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround, but the Wizards might not want to bring Wall back for a road game on a back-to-back set. If he's out again, Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky will split the PG minutes.
