Kirk Hinrich is expected to start at point guard for the Bulls against the Suns on Wednesday night after missing time with a hip injury.

This is a bummer if you just picked up Nate Robinson, but Hinrich is probably not quite 100 percent and Robinson could still pay some dividends. As for Hinrich, he was probably dropped in a lot of leagues when he was injured, and while he wasn't all that great when healthy, he should still be a serviceable point guard.

Amare Stoudemire is questionable to play Saturday vs. the Suns.

Dec 19 - 12:52 PM

Carmelo Anthony (knee) is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Suns.

There has been talk of Anthony shutting things down to get his knee right, so we'd say he's more on the doubtful side of questionable. If he's unable to go Travis Wear could get another start, but he shouldn't be considered an option in standard leagues. Tim Hardaway Jr., however, would be a primary option on offense if Melo is unavailable, so he’d be the guy to target in dailies. Stay tuned.

J.R. Smith (foot) is being listed as doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Suns.

Smith has been a train wreck this season, and given his obvious struggles with grasping the triangle offense, he shouldn't be viewed as a stash candidate in standard leagues. If he's unable to go Saturday, Tim Hardaway Jr. will get all the minutes he can handle, and he'd make for a quality option in daily leagues. Stay tuned.

Kevin Durant (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

OKC doesn’t necessarily need Durant for a game vs. the Lakers, so that is something that should be considered. If he's unable to go, Perry Jones would likely slide into the starting lineup, and he'd make for a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. We'll be monitoring this situation closely, so stay tuned for more updates as we draw closer to tip-off.

According to beat reporter Jerry Zgoda, Flip Saunders has been contemplating inserting Shabazz Muhammad into the starting lineup to add some scoring to start the games.

This is an interesting report, and with trade rumors swirling around Corey Brewer, Muhammad is worth a speculative add in standard leagues. Over the past two weeks, Muhammad is averaging 18.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.0 steal per game while shooting 50.0 percent from the field and 69.8 percent from the line (on 6.1 attempts). However, his value would take a hit once Kevin Martin (wrist) returns.
Dec 19 - 12:31 PM

Mike Miller will reportedly be inserted into the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Nets, sending Shawn Marion to the bench.

This is an interesting move, and it'll be interesting to see how Miller's body holds up with the extended minutes. Miller is coming into this game with averages of 1.5 points and 2.1 rebounds over 12 minutes of action, so owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with the injury-prone veteran.
Dec 19 - 12:18 PM

Jermaine O'Neal is reportedly "highly intrigued" with the possibility of joining the Mavericks in pursuit of a title.

O'Neal currently resides in the Dallas area, and is familiar with Rick Carlisle's system as he played for him during his time with the Pacers. The Warriors and Cavaliers also remain in the running to acquire O'Neal's services, but the Mavericks have the edge for now. O'Neal will be a reserve wherever he lands, and won't be worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 19 - 12:13 PM

The Hornets have reportedly pulled Lance Stephenson off the trading block as none of the offers they received were enticing enough to pull the trigger on a deal.

The Hornets believe that Stephenson's groin injury has hindered him all season, and is the main culprit to his lack of production thus far. Charlotte feels that the injury affected Stephenson's movement and conditioning, and they would like to see him at full strength before sending him away for pennies on the dollar. While Stephenson may get traded away at some point this season, it is not likely to happen any time soon.
Dec 19 - 12:01 PM

Mo Williams (back) has been upgraded to a game-time decision for Friday's game vs. Boston.

Williams got a second opinion on his back on Thursday, which confirmed that the issue he is dealing with is only muscular. However, if Williams is able to suit up, he won't be able to play much more than 12 minutes, which simply isn't enough time to contribute in a meaningful way to the stat sheet. With Ricky Rubio nearing a return, Williams can be left on the wire in standard leagues.
Dec 19 - 11:47 AM

Dwyane Wade said that he's completely over his stomach virus.

The virus really didn't limit him too much at all, as he went off for a season-high 42 points during his last outing. Wade is going to be asked to carry Miami's offense while Chris Bosh (calf) is sidelined, and he remains an excellent option in daily leagues.
Dec 19 - 11:37 AM

Chris Bosh (calf) will not play Friday vs. the Wizards, and remains without a timetable to return.

Miami went with a starting frontcourt of Justin Hamilton and Chris Andersen during their last game with both Bosh and Josh McRoberts (knee) sidelined, but neither guy made a major impact on the boxscore. Andersen can be viewed as a shot-blocking specialist in deeper leagues, while Hamilton hasn't really been worth using. Shawne Williams and Udonis Haslem will see some increased opportunity, but both those guys have been struggling lately.
