The Desert News believes that Derrick Favors will start at power forward ahead of Paul Millsap.

This could be really big news for Favors' fantasy outlook if he winds up with the starting gig. Beat writer Jody Genessy speculates that Favors is the favorite because of his "enormous potential" and argues that "the time has probably come" for Favors to take the starting role permanently. We'll have to see how things shake out in training camp, but Favors is a name fantasy owners don't want to overlook. He averaged 7.8 points and 7.0 rebounds on 50 percent shooting over four games as the starting PF last season.

Pau Gasol (hand) and Mike Dunleavy (back) are questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves.

Gasol sat out of Friday's game vs. the Nuggets, so he will likely be a game-time call. Cameron Bairstow started in his place and scored four points with four boards and five fouls in 10 minutes, so Bobby Portis is the better option in fantasy if Gasol misses another game.

Jimmy Butler (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves.

He is reportedly dealing with a hyperextended left knee, but the Bulls still haven't released the results of his MRI. Until then, he should be considered day-to-day. Derrick Rose, Tony Snell and E'Twaun Moore will all have to step up in Butler's absence.
Feb 6 - 2:19 PM

Tobias Harris (eye) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

He is dealing with a cut above his left eye that required stitches, but the injury sounds very minor. There will be another update after Sunday's morning shootaround, but it's safe to pencil him into all active lineups.
Feb 6 - 1:39 PM

Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett and Nikola Pekovic (foot) are all doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

To be clear, none of them will play and the Wolves should've just listed them as out. Martin may not play again until the trade deadline, and by that by point he might be wearing a different uniform. He's not worth stashing in most leagues, while Zach LaVine will continue to benefit in his absence.

Mike Conley will consider all options when he becomes a free agent this summer.

"I think everything will be on the table when the time comes," Conley said. "I haven’t committed to anything." The Grizzlies might be a little nervous following this quote, as Conley will have the ability to walk at the end of the season as an unrestricted free agent. Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace has already stated that Conley will be the team's "No. 1 priority" this summer, but there will certainly be a lot of competition for his signature.
Feb 6 - 1:27 PM

Tim Duncan (knee) will not play on Saturday vs. the Lakers as expected.

He was never expected to play and the Spurs still haven't released a timetable for his return. Coach Gregg Popovich did say on Friday that Duncan was making some progress, so stash him in an IR spot if possible. David West, Boris Diaw and Boban Marjanovic will pick up the slack.
Feb 6 - 1:04 PM

Ian Mahinmi (back) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Pistons.

Pacers coach Frank Vogel said on Friday that Mahinmi was probable, so he has a very good chance of returning from a four-game absence tonight. Mahinmi has been a pleasant surprise all season with averages of 8.5 points, 7.1 boards and 1.0 blocks, so he's worth a look if you need a low-end big. Jordan Hill and Lavoy Allen will lose minutes upon Mahinmi's return.
Feb 6 - 12:34 PM

Noah Vonleh (ankle) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Rockets.

Moe Harkless drew the start against the Raptors on Thursday, so the Blazers will likely stick with the same lineup since the Rockets are starting Trevor Ariza at the four. Vonleh only plays minutes in the teens despite the fact that he has been starting at power forward, so he's not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 6 - 11:22 AM

Ish Smith said that he sprained his left ankle on Friday vs. the Wizards.

"I don't know," Smith said when asked if he would play on Saturday vs. the Nets. "I should be fine. I should be, but I just rolled it, sprained it." We will consider him questionable to play, but his availability will likely depend on whether or not his ankle swelled up on him overnight. If Smith is held out, expect T.J. McConnell and Isaiah Canaan to benefit.
Feb 6 - 11:09 AM

Kemba Walker had his left knee drained on Wednesday.

He sat out of Wednesday's game vs. the Cavaliers due to the procedure, but he returned on Friday vs. the Heat and looked great, scoring 20 points in 36 minutes. Walker's knee issue doesn't appear to be too serious, but it's something to keep an eye on if the Hornets fall out of the playoff hunt.
Feb 6 - 10:35 AM

The Mavericks will not rest their starters on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set, but the Mavs were blown out by the Spurs on Friday and the starters did not log heavy minutes. Deron Williams, Wesley Matthews, Chandler Parsons, Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) and Zaza Pachulia are all safe to plug into active lineups.
