Latest Headlines

Kobe Bryant (flu-like symptoms) was not at shootaround, and he is a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Pacers.

Kobe has a long history of playing through injury and illness, so Kobe would have to be incredibly sick for him not to take the floor. Considering what he's played through previously, we wouldn't bet against Kobe suiting up and playing as he normally would. Owners obviously need to check back for a more definitive update.

Jaylen Brown started the second half of Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards in place of Amir Johnson.

Coach Brad Stevens usually turns to Kelly Olynyk or Jonas Jerebko when he's looking for a spark at halftime, but Brown is getting a chance at PF this time as the Celtics will roll with a small-ball lineup. Brown's minutes have been all over the place and this is likely a temporary switch, so he's not a pickup in standard leagues yet.

Jeff Green (ankle) will return to Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls.

He landed on Dwyane Wade's foot and appeared to sprain his left ankle. He walked back to the locker room under his own power, but quickly returned to the bench and is good to go for the second half.
Jan 24 - 8:00 PM

Gary Harris (ankle) will play on Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

Harris was a stud on Sunday when he scored a team-high 22 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes. He was listed as probable on the injury report, so his status wasn't really in doubt. Get him active.
Jan 24 - 7:50 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay (back) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Jazz and Jameer Nelson will get the start.

Mudiay was "very doubtful" to play before this report, so he could miss additional time. While Nelson is getting the start, he was very underwhelming on Sunday and was outplayed by Jamal Murray off the bench. For now, expect both players to split the PG minutes in Mudiay's absence.
Jan 24 - 7:23 PM

Andrew Bogut (right hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Bogut has spent the past six games on the sidelines, but he's expected to return to action sometime this week. We should get another update on Bogut following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he is able to give it a go, he'll siphon away some minutes from Salah Mejri.
Jan 24 - 7:15 PM

Wesley Matthews (right hip strain) has been downgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Rick Carlisle said on Sunday that he was expected Matthews to be good to go for Wednesday's game, but perhaps that statement was a bit overly optimistic. We should have a better idea on his playing status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he's out, Dorian Finney-Smith could earn the start with Justin Anderson logging extended minutes with the second unit. Stay tuned.
Jan 24 - 7:12 PM

Jahlil Okafor (knee) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

There it is. Okafor was downgraded from probable to questionable earlier in the day, but he's now officially out. The 76ers are calling it right knee soreness, and it's worth noting that it's the same knee that he had surgery on last season. The 76ers will proceed with caution, but we'll consider Okafor questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks for now. Nerlens Noel will draw the start Tuesday, but expect to see a lot of Ersan Ilyasova and Dario Saric as well.
Jan 24 - 7:09 PM

Raymond Felton will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the 76ers.

Blake Griffin (knee) is back in the starting lineup after an extended absence, while Austin Rivers will slide to PG. Felton is still looking at a solid workload for several weeks, so sticking with him if you need assists and steals is the right call. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.
Jan 24 - 7:06 PM

David Lee will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Raptors, sending Dewayne Dedmon back to the bench.

The Spurs will be without Kawhi Leonard (hand), Tony Parker (foot) and Pau Gasol (hand) tonight, so it makes sense to bring Lee back into the starting five to help infuse some offense into the first unit. Dejounte Murray, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson and LaMarcus Aldridge will join Lee in the starting five for tonight's game.
Jan 24 - 7:04 PM

Jodie Meeks underwent surgery to correct his dislocated right thumb on Tuesday, and he will be out indefinitely.

Meeks just hasn't been able to stay healthy over the past couple years, and it's looking like this will be another lost season for the 29-year-old veteran. With Evan Fournier (heel) and D.J. Augustin also out of commission, Elfrid Payton will be forced into heavy minutes and Mario Hezonja will have the opportunity to get into the rotation. Meeks belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Jan 24 - 6:53 PM

Nerlens Noel will start at center for Tuesday's game against the Clippers with Joel Embiid (knee) unavailable.

It sounds like Jahlil Okafor (knee) will also be unavailable tonight, so Noel could be logging major minutes, and he's someone to consider throwing out there in daily leagues. Richaun Holmes could also see some extended run with the second unit, but Noel is the guy you want to target in fantasy hoops.
