Nikola Pekovic sprained his left ankle in the second half of Monday's game and will not return.

Uh oh. This is the same left ankle that had bone spurs in the offseason and there's cause for concern here. Dante Cunningham has been playing well and has logged 23 minutes per game in his last five contests. While Cunningham figures to be the primary beneficiary, Greg Stiemsma and Louis Amundson may also pick up minutes for the depleted Minnesota roster. Stay tuned.

Larry Sanders (illness) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. Charlotte.

Dec 28 - 2:48 PM

Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

With Larry Sanders (illness) also being listed as questionable for this one, the Bucks frontcourt will be manned by a collection of Zaza Pachulia, Johnny O'Bryant, and John Henson, with Zaza offering the most upside of the group. Ilyasova remains without an official timetable to return, and a concussion forced him to miss 21 games last season, so owners may want to consider looking for other options.

Kobe Bryant (soreness) will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Suns.

Bryant's return to action will send Wayne Ellington back to the bench, and take away some touches from Carlos Boozer. Kobe will be limited to 30 minutes tonight, but that's plenty of time for him to put up stats in an up-tempo game with Phoenix. He's obviously a must-start option every time he's in uniform, so go ahead and get him active.

J.R. Smith (heel) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. Portland.

He has had some tough luck with plantar fasciitis and has now missed nine straight games so don't be surprised if he sits this one out. Owners in standard leagues can continue to ignore Smith while Tim Hardaway Jr. is definitely worth a look in all leagues. Stay tuned.
Dec 28 - 1:55 PM

Chris Bosh (calf) was able to participate in all of Sunday's practice, and is expected to be re-evaluated on Monday to determine his status for their game against the Magic.

The Heat have been in shambles without him, going just 3-5 in his absence so it will be great for them to get him back. Bosh's owners will have to check back on Monday before activating him in their lineups, but things are finally starting to look up. Bosh's return would spell trouble for the value of Shawne Williams (foot) and Chris Andersen.
Dec 28 - 1:46 PM

Kevin Durant (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Mavericks.

This will be his sixth straight game out of the lineup and it is clear that KD's ankle is a real concern. However, he was able to go through shootaround on Sunday so it is safe to assume that he is somewhat close to returning. Perry Jones will likely get another start but is not an attractive option in most leagues. We will pass along further updates as needed.

Carmelo Anthony's status for Sunday's game with Portland is unclear after he logged 46 minutes on Saturday in a loss to the Kings.

We will leave him off of the injury report for now, but owners will want to check back for updates considering how much his knee has impacted him this season. The Knicks have no reason to risk Anthony's health considering how their season has gone, so be prepared to have a backup plan ready. Owners would be wise to sell-high before it's too late, as there is a real possibility of Melo shutting it down for the season in the near future. Expect Tim Hardaway Jr. to take as many shots as he pleases if Melo sits this one out.
Dec 28 - 10:04 AM

Amare Stoudemire (knee) is doubtful to play on Sunday vs. Portland.

To be clear, we don't think that he has any real shot to play in this one and Amare admitted that he is really struggling with his knee. "I’ve been playing with a little soreness for the past week or so and been playing somewhat through it," Stoudemire said. "By doing that, it made it worse. I’ll try to rest and see if it gets better." Owners can check back before tip-off to verify, but plan on seeing extended minutes from Quincy Acy, Jason Smith, and Cole Aldrich if Amare sits.
Dec 28 - 10:01 AM

Luc Mbah a Moute is dealing with a strained left calf and has no timetable for a return.

He was forced to miss Saturday's game, and knowing how cautious the 76ers are it appears that he will likely see additional time on the sidelines. Mbah a Moute actually had some decent value in deeper leagues, but that run is likely over and owners can plan on looking elsewhere. Henry Sims started on Saturday, but is only worth a look in deeper leagues.

Draymond Green flirted with a five-by-five line against the Wolves on Saturday with four points, eight rebounds, six assists, three blocks and a career-high six steals in 32 minutes.

He just seems to find a way to fill it up and he remains as the Western Conference version of Jimmy Butler -- to a slightly lesser degree. In case you needed convincing, David Lee's return is not hurting Green's fantasy value and that shouldn't be the case all season.
Dec 28 - 1:57 AM

Zach LaVine handed out a career-high 14 assists against the Warriors during a 110-97 loss on Saturday, adding 12 points, four rebounds, one steal and five turnovers.

It was just his second double-double of his career. LaVine is not shooting the ball well, making just 37 percent from the field over his last 11 games. With Ricky Rubio (ankle) set to return in a couple weeks, LaVine is even less of an attractive fantasy option.
