Amare Stoudemire is "closing in" on getting clearance for practice, but he still hasn't been cleared to cut or absorb contact.

STAT looked "tremendous" in a pregame workout on Sunday, and after a previous report indicated Stoudemire could be back by Christmas, it looks like he's inching closer, albeit slowly, to getting back. The fact that he's still not practicing or cutting indicates Christmas could be an optimistic date for his return, but he still shouldn't be sitting on waiver wires at this point.

John Wall (knee) isn't sure if he'll play in the All-Star Game on Sunday.

He was fouled as he went to the hoop and was grimacing for a few minutes. It looked to be a minor injury and he did play through it. It was only a fall after a foul and he didn't show signs of pain after a couple minutes. Wall is getting treatment and should continue to see the training staff this weekend if something is wrong. There should be an update on Friday.

Bradley Beal played 37 minutes in a loss to the Bucks on Thursday with 19 points, three rebounds, five assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

You wouldn't know his leg was fractured based on his play. Beal is attacking a ton these days and is driving the offense. The 37 minutes tonight shows he's ready to roll after the break, so expect him to get hot after the break.

Tyreke Evans underwent successful surgery on his right knee on Thursday.

He is out for the season due to his lingering tendinitis. Evans had his third right knee surgery in the past nine months, but he should be ready to start the season next year. The Pelicans will add another player, which should be Bryce Dejean-Jones. Norris Cole and Jrue Holiday benefit most while every other player benefits as well. Evans' future isn't looking great after winning Rookie of the Year over Stephen Curry.

Gary Neal (right leg) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bucks.

It'll be Neal's second straight game on the sidelines with a sore leg, but he's not a major part of the rotation anyway with Bradley Beal healthy. Ramon Sessions and Garrett Temple will pick up some extra minutes in Neal's absence, but that doesn't mean much at all in fantasy hoops. Neal should be good to go after the All-Star break.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has been diagnosed with a torn labrum, and he's in danger of missing the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

This is the same injury that MKG suffered during the pre-season, and it seems likely that this will be a season-ender for Kidd-Gilchrist, although we won't have an official timetable until after the All-Star break. Michael can opt to undergo surgery to repair the labrum tear, which would be a season-ending scenario, or he can try and rehab it, but that would make him more prone to future tears. With MKG out, guys like Jeremy Lin, Nicolas Batum, P.J. Hairston and Jeremy Lamb will all step up to help fill the void, with Hairston likely to return to the starting lineup. Jeremy Lin is worth a speculative add in deep leagues, while MKG is now officially a cut-candidate in all re-draft formats.

Hassan Whiteside has been suspended one game for elbowing Boban Marjanovic in the head during Tuesday's loss to the Spurs.

Whiteside definitely deserved the suspension for his actions, and he'll now be forced to sit out next Friday's game in Atlanta. With Whiteside unavailable, Amare Stoudemire will continue to start with Chris Bosh logging extended minutes at the five-spot. Josh McRoberts and Justise Winslow also figure to earn some extended run sans Hassan.

The Rockets have reportedly begun actively shopping Dwight Howard.

Howard is expected to opt out of his contract this summer, and the Rockets may not be willing to give him the max-deal that he desires, so GM Daryl Morey is now looking to see what he can get on the open market rather than potentially losing the eight-time All-Star for nothing. Thus far the Celtics have been the only team officially linked to D-12, but that's not to say that Boston is the only team interested in landing Dwight. For what it's worth, Dwight has said that he's not seeking a trade away from Houston, but it's also not his decision.

Celtics president Danny Ainge said Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) only suffered a shoulder bruise on Wednesday and should be ready to play after the All-Star Break.

Olynyk went for X-rays Wednesday night after suffering a right shoulder subluxation, but Ainge said the team doesn't Olynyk to miss any time after the All-Star Break due to the bruise. Olynyk's minutes and numbers have been down as of late, but he's still averaging 10.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.8 steals, and 1.3 treys this season and is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues as long as he's healthy.

Kevin Love (shoulder) doesn't expect to miss any time after suffering a left shoulder stinger on Wednesday.

Love injured his surgically-repaired left shoulder during Wednesday's win over the Lakers, but looks to have avoided a serious injury. "It felt like fire was running down my arm," Love said. "Just a stinger, and doctors decided we'll be cautious and use the break for it to feel better, but it actually feels OK right now." We'll keep an eye on Love over the All-Star Break, but it sounds like he'll be ready to go for the second half of the season.

Moe Harkless racked up a season-high 19 points with 13 rebounds as a starter on Wednesday, hitting 8-of-11 shots with one 3-pointer, one assist and two steals in 28 minutes of action.

The Blazers improved their record to .500 with the victory, bumping the Rockets from the No. 8 seed in the process, and Harkless made a strong case to keep the PF job ahead of Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh. He's playing well and is worth keeping an eye on once Portland returns to action, but owners in standard leagues shouldn't pick him up during the break.
Feb 11 - 1:46 AM

James Harden scored 34 points during a 116-103 loss to the Blazers on Wednesday with nine rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, eight turnovers and three 3-pointers.

The stat line was huge, but Harden was roasted on defense. Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said the Rockets are "broken" and it's "that simple." Bickerstaff also added he doesn't know if the roster will change at the deadline. Whatever the case, Harden will be a stat-stuffing machine in fantasy.
