Luke Harangody was limited in practice on Thursday due to a sprained right knee.

Harangody has no fantasy value, and it's a tad surprising that the Cavs even re-signed him considering he's slated to make over $1 million this year.

J.R. Smith (heel) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Wizards, according to head coach Derek Fisher.

Updating a previous item, it seems as if Smith is feeling well enough to be upgraded from doubtful to a game-time decision. This one looks like it will come down to the wire, but Tim Hardaway Jr. would be the biggest fantasy beneficiary if Smith sits.

Amare Stoudemire (knee) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

Stoudemire is dealing with a knee injury due to his early-season workload, according to Knicks head coach Derek Fisher. We'll update his status as more information becomes available, but Cole Aldrich and Quincy Acy would be in line for more minutes if STAT can't play on Christmas Day.

J.R. Smith (heel) is likely to miss Thursday's game against the Wizards.

Smith had been hoping to play on Christmas Day, but the last two days of practice didn't go as well as he and the Knicks had hoped. "Right now it’s a no," Smith said of his availability for Thursday. "We’ll see how the treatment reacts today, if it swells up." We'll update his status prior to tip-off, but Tim Hardaway Jr. will be in line for big minutes on Thursday if Smith can't play.

Kawhi Leonard (hand) has been listed as out for Thursday's game against the Thunder.

There was some optimism that he would play on Christmas, but it doesn't look like it. Leonard's damage to his hand doesn't sound too serious and hopefully he can make it back on the court at some point in 2014. Kyle Anderson will start, but Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw and Marco Belinelli are benefiting the most.

Lance Stephenson (hip) will not play against the Thunder on Friday.

He is not close to a return and coach Steve Clifford isn't exactly Lance's biggest fan. He is one of the least efficient players in the NBA and his defense has fallen off, too. Stephenson isn't necessarily a must-own player anymore. Gary Neal, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Gerald Henderson will benefit.
Dec 24 - 5:19 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Spurs.

The team could change his status tomorrow, but for now he's not expected to play. This is a bit of a surprise considering the team called it a mild sprain and his owners will want to check back tomorrow morning to see if he goes through shootaround. For now, Russell Westbrook and Reggie Jackson benefit.
Dec 24 - 3:46 PM

Terrence Jones (leg) did some working out with the team on Wednesday.

He is still without a timetable and it's possible the Rockets may have had interest in Josh Smith because of the severity of Jones' leg injury. Regardless, the Smith signing has essentially put the kibosh on a breakout for Terrence Jones, so patience has not paid off for his fantasy owners. His ceiling is severely capped and he is a cut candidate in standard leagues.
Dec 24 - 2:03 PM

Chris Bosh (calf) is doubtful to play on Christmas vs. the Cavaliers.

He was initially targeting this game for his return so it is a little disappointing to hear this news one day before tip-off. Owners should check back on Thursday morning just to verify, but it looks like Chris Andersen and Udonis Haslem will continue to soak up his minutes.
Dec 24 - 1:23 PM

Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire will play on Christmas vs. the Wizards.

There was no chance that they would this miss this game, but it is great that we are able to confirm it this early. Both players should be in all lineups with just five games being played on Thursday.
Dec 24 - 1:21 PM

Josh Smith has committed to play for the Houston Rockets after he clears waivers at 5:00 pm EST.

Given his outstanding relationship with Dwight Howard and Houston's promise to put him in the starting lineup, this move was expected. It's a little interesting that the Rockets were so intrigued with Smith given how inefficient he is, but maybe he can turn things around and provide a boost to their playoff aspirations. Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas' value takes a huge hit with this news, but owners should use a wait-and-see approach to see how things pan out.
Dec 24 - 1:04 PM

J.R. Smith (heel) said that he is unlikely to play on Christmas vs. the Wizards.

He is still dealing with plantar fasciitis so we doubt that he will be activated for Thursday. Smith can continue to be ignored outside of deeper leagues while Tim Hardaway Jr. is making a lot of sense in standard leagues for his 3-pointers.
