Josh Smith (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Tuesday.

Smith said his ankle "felt good," but reiterated that it's still too early to determine his availability for Wednesday. Smoove owners in daily leagues will have to check back for a more definitive update. If he is forced to sit out again, Anthony Tolliver will likely start in his place again, but he offers nothing to fantasy owners.

Terrence Jones participated in shootaround, and he will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's gam vs. the Mavericks.

Jan 28 - 12:06 PM

The Nets released a statement on Wednesday saying that Mirza Teletovic (lungs) will make a full recovery.

He obviously won't play again this season, but this is fantastic news and hopefully this means we will see him back out on the court soon. Teletovic is flying home to New York on Wednesday, and we will continue to track his progress every step of the way. Expect Cory Jefferson, Bojan Bogdanovic and Brook Lopez to see some extra minutes for the foreseeable future.

Jrue Holiday (leg) said that he has no specific timetable for his return, and he remains out indefinitely.

After he missed half of last season with a similar injury, the Pelicans will likely proceed with extreme caution. Holiday should still be stashed in all leagues in the hope that he can return soon, but this report is a little troubling. In the meantime, Tyreke Evans will continue to run the point for New Orleans, while Eric Gordon will handle the ball more as well.

Tyreke Evans (illness) is considered probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He has take over the starting point guard role in the absence of Jrue Holday (leg), so the Pelicans would be in serious trouble If Evans missed this game. Even though Evans will likely end up playing, owners should check back before tip-off just to be safe. Should he miss any time, Nate Wolters and Jimmer Fredette would see an uptick in minutes at point guard, but still wouldn't be ideal options outside of deeper leagues.

The Bucks have signed Jorge Gutierrez to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

He actually played for coach Jason Kidd when he was in Brooklyn, so the move does make some sense. However, Gutierrez likely won't be a big part of the rotation, so owners in most leagues can safely leave him on the wire for now. Also, the Bucks did not have to waive another player in order for this deal to work, as Larry Sander's suspension gave them the ability to add another player. If/when Sanders returns, the Bucks will then have to cut ties with somebody.

John Wall is reportedly dealing with a sore left Achilles, minor ankle sprains on both feet, and he was dealing with a migraine during Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

"He fought through a lot of different things," coach Randy Wittman said of Wall. "He's beat up a little bit. He's under the weather a little bit. But John loves playing. That's why I love that kid. It takes a lot for him to miss a game." To be clear, Wall is not expected to miss any time, but this simply speaks volumes of his toughness. Wall should get a chance to recover during the All-Star break, so his owners shouldn't be too concerned. Feel free to deploy Wall as normal for now, just be sure to stay tuned for updates.

Al Jefferson will join the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

The Hornets have been bringing Big Al off the bench in order to ease him into action since returning from a groin injury, but Bismack Biyombo's knee injury changed their stance. With an increase in minutes, Jefferson should be considered a must-start option in all formats from here on out.

The Thunder are reportedly still weighing the pros and cons of trading Reggie Jackson.

It's not surprising to see the Thunder considering a trade, as Jackson is going to become a restricted free agent in the Summer and they might not be able to afford him. The addition of Dion Waiters only made things worse, as Jackson's minutes have been trending down and he has reportedly had some issues with some of his teammates. Nothing is certain at the moment, but owners in most leagues should consider stashing Jackson for now in the hope that he is traded before the Feb. 19 deadline.
Jan 28 - 9:22 AM

The Kings are said to be active on the phones as the trade deadline approaches, and Derrick Williams and Nik Stauskas are both reportedly on the block.

We knew that Stauskas had been linked in several trade talks, but now it appears that Williams could be on his way out of Sacramento as well. No deal for either player is imminent by any means, but we will be sure to let you know if anything develops. Both Stauskas and Williams would have to be traded to ideal situations to make an impact in fantasy leagues, so owners can use a wait-and-see approach for now.

Klay Thompson stayed hot vs. the Bulls on Tuesday, scoring a team-high 30 points on 13-of-27 shooting with four 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in a disappointing overtime loss.

Thompson's usage rate is through the roof recently. He's averaging 35.0 points over the Warriors' past four games, on an average of 23.0 field goals and 5.8 free throw attempts per game. He's pouring in 3.2 triples per game this season, on 45.8 percent shooting beyond the arc, a ridiculous percentage which trails only Courtney Lee (46.4 percent) and Kyle Korver (53.1 percent). Those numbers are unquestionably elite.

Derrick Rose turned the ball over a career-high 11 times vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, scoring 30 points on 13-of-33 shooting with four 3-pointers, seven rebounds and just one assist in 43 minutes.

Rose was launching shots indiscriminately, perhaps overcompensating during a nationally-televised game vs. the top-seeded team in the West. His lone assist helped to force overtime and he made a very tough jumper to give Chicago the lead late in OT, but his lack of efficiency is glaring -- he's now one of three people since the 1985-86 season to take at least 33 shots without a single free throw attempt, joining Gilbert Arenas and Hakeem Olajuwon. Rose's fantasy owners can't complain as long as he's healthy and racking up a ridiculous usage rate.
