The Grizzlies have picked up Quincy Pondexter's fourth-year option.

Pondexter will earn $2.2 million in 2013-14, which will likely be a contract year since (barring unexpected improvement) the Grizzlies probably wouldn't extend a $3.3 million qualifying offer in the summer of 2014. Pondexter has no fantasy value in the Grizzlies' deep rotation.

Patrick Patterson (knee) will play Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Patterson has spent the past six games on the sidelines, so he might not be working with a full complement of minutes tonight. With Patterson getting back to the court, and Jared Sullinger working his way into game shape, Lucas Nogueira could be in danger of losing some playing time.

Updating a previous report, Luke Walton confirmed that Luol Deng (wrist) will play Wednesday in Portland.

Deng missed the scrimmage portion of Tuesday's practice, but he'll be good to go for Wednesday's game after logging 19 minutes in his return from a two-game stint on the sidelines on Sunday. Deng is starting and getting solid run for the Lakers, but statistically, his production just hasn't been there and his rest-of-season outlook isn't looking great as an older guy playing on a rebuilding team.

Frank Kaminsky (nasal fracture), Cody Zeller (quad) and Jeremy Lamb (foot) are being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

It's unclear exactly when Kaminsky broke his nose, but he'll likely be fitted for a mask and his ability to play will be a matter of pain tolerance. If both Kaminsky and Zeller can't give it a go on Wednesday, Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes would split the center minutes, and Marvin Williams would get all the run he could handle. Lamb has spent the past six games on the sidelines, which has translated to more minutes for Marco Belinelli.

Quin Snyder said on Monday that Rodney Hood's (knee) initial timetable was set at 2-4 weeks, and he hasn't deviated from that proposed timeline.

Hood went down with the knee injury on January 15, so we're currently just a little over a week into his rehab, and if he requires the full four weeks off, we won't see him back on the court until mid-February. Hood wasn't playing very well at all prior to going down, so if you're in a standard league without an IR-spot and struggling in the standings, you may be forced to outright cut him. Joe Ingles will continue to start in Hood's absence, and he's worth a look if you want some steals and triples.

Anthony Davis (quad) practiced on Tuesday and said he's expecting to play Wednesday against the Thunder.

It's looking like the quad issue will only end up costing Davis one game on the sidelines, so Terrence Jones figures to head back to the bench on Wednesday night and his value will take a hit with the move to the second unit. Owners can expect another update on Davis following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but things are trending in a positive direction here.

Blake Griffin (knee) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the 76ers.

This was expected, as coach Doc Rivers said on Monday that Griffin would "most likely" play in Philly. With Chris Paul (thumb) sidelined for at least another five or six weeks, Griffin will shoulder much of the offensive load for the Clippers. Luc Mbah a Moute, Marreese Speights and Brandon Bass will all see their playing time scaled significantly back with Blake back in the mix. Prior to missing 18 straight games with the knee injury, Griffin was averaging 21.2 points, 8.8 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.0 steals this season.

Dwyane Wade confirmed that he will play both ends of the Bulls back-to-back (Tuesday in Orlando and Wednesday vs. Atlanta.)

It is important to note that Chicago may choose to limit his minutes in at least one of these two games, just as they did in a similar back-to-back situation last week, when he played 20 minutes (and scored four points) on Friday but then scored 30 points in 35 minutes the next night. Feel free to start Wade as one normally would in season-long leagues, but he carries a bit of extra risk for those considering him in DFS formats.

Despite battling a bad head cold, Jerian Grant is expected to replace Michael Carter-Williams as the Bulls starting point guard on Tuesday vs. the Magic.

Grant has been a DNP-CD in three of the Bulls last five games, so this certainly qualifies as surprising news. However, Michael Carter-Williams has struggled recently, so it is understandable that coach Fred Hoiberg wanted to shake things up. MCW has scored a total of five points on 2-of-12 shooting and dished out just four assists over 40 minutes in the the Bulls previous two games. Grant has started five games this season, averaging 9.2 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.2 assists in those contests. It will be interesting to see who Hoiberg uses as his first PG off the bench: Carter-Williams or Rajon Rondo.
Jan 24 - 12:01 PM

Jahlil Okafor (knee) was limited in shootaround on Tuesday morning and has been downgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Okafor had previously been listed as probable as recently as yesterday. Okafor was set to start and play heavy minutes on Tuesday and Wednesday, as Joel Embiid has already been ruled out of both contests. We will have to wait for a more complete update from the team prior to Tuesday night's tip-off. If Okafor does not play, Nerlens Noel will likely start at center and see all the minutes he can handle. Richaun Holmes, who has appeared in just one game over the last five weeks, would likely serve as Noel's backup off the Philly bench.

Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

Patterson appears primed to make his return after missing six straight and 10 of the Raptors last 12 games due to a left knee injury. However, it remains to be seen just how many minutes he will play. He will be forced to split minutes with Jared Sullinger, Lucas Nogueira and Pascal Siakam. For what it's worth, the Raps game notes list Lucas Nogueira as the projected starter at power forward and Norman Powell starting at shooting guard in place DeMar DeRozan (ankle).

Russell Westbrook scored 38 points and hit a game-winning mid-range jumper with a couple seconds left in Monday's 97-95 win over the Jazz.

He's an absolute monster. Westbrook recorded his 22nd triple-double of the season with 10 rebounds and 10 assists, adding four steals, one block, three triples and six turnovers. He finished 11-of-29 from the field and 13-of-17 from the line, an incredible feat against one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. Per StatMuse, Westbrook now has the most 30-point triple-doubles (21) in the last 30 years over LeBron James (21) and Michael Jordan (16). Not bad for an All-Star reserve...
