Hornets sign G Donald Sloan to a 10-day contract.

The move was expected and is now official. Sloan couldn't beat out Jeremy Pargo in Cleveland, so he's not going to make an impact with the Hornets, either.

Mo Williams (hip) and Zach LaVine (ankle) are questionable for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers.

Mike Conley (wrist) participated in shootaround on Saturday morning, and is still listed as probable to play against the Thunder.

He hasn't been able to play in the Grizzlies' last two games, so there's a good chance that they keep a close eye on his minutes. Conley is also going to have to chase Russell Westbrook around the court all game, so owners in daily leagues may want to look elsewhere. If Conley ends up sitting as a precaution, Beno Udrih will stay relevant for a little bit longer.

John Wall (migraines) didn't participate in shootaround on Saturday, but teammates Bradley Beal and Garrett Temple believe that Wall will end up playing against the Raptors.

Wall is battling a couple of bum ankles, a sore Achilles and some mysterious migraines, so we will be sure to monitor his status very closely prior to tip-off. We will leave him on the injury report for now, but we still think that Wall will end up playing in this one. Should Wall miss any time in the future, Bradley Beal, Andre Miller and even Garrett Temple will all benefit. Stay tuned.

Tobias Harris (quad) will be available to play against the Mavericks on Saturday.

It was originally thought to be a knee injury, but we have now learned that Harris simply suffered a bruised lower right quad during Thursday's game against the Bucks. This is obviously great news for Harris, and it doesn't look like he will be in danger of missing any time. Harris is still coming off the bench for the time being, but with head coach Jacque Vaughn's job in jeopardy, Harris should be in line for more playing time moving forward.

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday's game against the Pacers.

He was able to play through his left ankle sprain on Friday against the Cavaliers, but knowing that this is the second half of a back-to-back set, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Kings limit his minutes. Cousins is obviously a must-start option even when he is at less than 100 percent, but just be sure to check back prior to tip-off for any updates on his status.

The Knicks announced on Saturday that they have signed forward Lance Thomas for the remainder of the season.

Thomas has exceeded expectations since arriving from the Thunder, and he has earned a decent role at both forward spots for the Knicks. Thomas doesn't have a lot of upside, but his playing time could increase if Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire miss more time in the future, and all indications say that they will. For now, Thomas can be ignored outside of deeper leagues.

The Nets have reportedly turned down the Nuggets trade offer of J.J. Hickson and JaVale McGee for Brook Lopez.

Lopez is coming off a 35-point game against the Raptors on Friday, so the Nets probably feel like they can get a lot more in return. The fact remains that Brooklyn will entertain several different offers until the Feb. 19 deadline, so this is definitely something we will monitor closely. Lopez will always be a major injury risk, but he's a must-start player when healthy.

Gordon Hayward was on fire in the Jazz's 110-100 win over the Warriors on Friday, scoring 26 points on 9-of-20 shooting (1-of-3 from deep, 7-of-8 from the line) with 15 rebounds, six assists and three steals.

So much for that sinus congestion. He settled down after a real hot start, but he is starting to push his way back up the ranks, now sitting at a top 25-35 return on the season (8/9 cat). Derrick Favors added 15 points, four rebounds, two steals and three blocks in the win.
Jan 31 - 2:38 AM

Hassan Whiteside probably upped his 2K rating once again in the Heat's 93-72 loss to the Mavs on Friday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting with 24 rebounds, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

Hopefully you didn't drop him or sell him at some low-rent rate. He's bringing back late first-round fantasy value over the past 11 games as waiver wire pickup of the year in both fantasy and reality.
Jan 31 - 2:10 AM

Charlie Villanueva scored a season-high 20 points off the bench on Friday, hitting six threes with five rebounds and one block in 23 minutes.

Villanueva had a few nice games earlier in the month but has been dead quiet ever since. If he can parlay this into a few nice outings in a row we'll let you know.
Jan 31 - 1:58 AM

Eric Gordon scored 28 points on 10-of-20 shooting (including five threes) with two rebounds, seven assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Clippers.

With Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday out his touches were bound to increase and he's doing his part to give something back at the tail-end of a tumultuous contract. He's a must-start player until further notice.
