Chase Budinger (knee) will see a doctor on Wednesday to determine a timetable for his return.

Budinger is targeting a March return, and while he could return a bit earlier than expected, he's still going to be sidelined for at least a month. When he is healthy, Budinger will help the Wolves on the wing, but owners can monitor his progression from the waiver wire.

Kosta Koufos (illness) is questionable for Saturday against the Lakers.

He was reportedly very sick at the arena on Thursday night and it's possible the Kings hold him out again. Koufos being out should mean Zach Randolph would get heavy run as the starter next to Willie Cauley-Stein.

De'Aaron Fox (pink eye) is questionable against the Lakers for Saturday's game.

He did not play on Thursday and has been dealing with this since at least Wednesday. Fox will likely be a game-time call for a late start tonight. If he's out, that means more run for Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield, Frank Mason and Bogdan Bogdanovic.

Coach Nate McMillan said that he does not expect Darren Collison (knee) to return during the Pacers upcoming four-game road trip.

There was some hope that Collison could return next week, but that now seems highly unlikely. "The recovery is not going as fast as we thought it would so it’s going to take a bit of time," said coach McMillan on Saturday. "I’d say on this road trip, he won’t be back." The Pacers embark on a four-game road trip beginning Monday in Dallas and don't return home until Monday, March 5th. Cory Joseph and Joe Young will continue to divvy up minutes at PG with Collison sidelined.

Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

Olynyk has missed five straight games, but the questionable tag represents an upgrade, as it appears he is inching his way closer to a return. We should have a final update on Olynyk's status for Saturday when coach Erik Spoelstra addresses the media pregame. Hassan Whiteside, James Johnson and Bam Adebayo will see extra minutes if Olynyk remains sidelined.

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that both Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday would not dress for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves.

This is the second straight game that Chicago has benched both Lopez and Holiday, as the Bulls are fully committed to tank mode. It now appears safe to drop Holiday in fantasy leagues. David Nwaba started for Chicago on Thursday and finished with 21 points, nine rebounds, and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes. He is worth consideration as a DFS flier on Saturday night.
Feb 24 - 1:08 PM

Although the MRI results have yet to be released, Jimmy Butler (knee) is officially listed as out for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

Wolves fans and Butler owners remain forced to anxiously await an update on Butler's knee. According to NBA.com's David Aldridge, there was "some optimism" in Butler's camp that he did not tear his ACL on Friday night. We'll pass along an update as soon as the results of the MRI are revealed.
Feb 24 - 1:06 PM

Tyreke Evans (right rib), Chandler Parsons (illness) and Wayne Selden Jr. (right knee soreness) have been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

Evans injured his rib in the fourth quarter Friday night vs. Cleveland. He was in pain as he headed to the locker room and was unable to return to the contest. Thus, it is not surprising the Grizzlies kept him out on the second night of a back-to-back. We can expect an update on Evans' status going forward when coach JB Bickerstaff addresses the media Saturday night. Memphis' next game is Monday at Boston. Andrew Harrison and Ben McLemore will likely see an uptick in minutes and scoring opportunities with Evans sidelined.

Eric Gordon (illness) was unable to practice on Saturday and is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Gordon missed Friday's game vs. Minnesota due to the same illness. If he is unable to suit up on Sunday as well, P.J. Tucker, Luc Mbah a Moute and Joe Johnson would see additional playing time. The Rockets then play the back end of a back-to-back on Monday in Utah.

Julius Randle ended up with 18 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists over 30 minutes in Friday's 124-102 victory against the Lakers.

Randle finished 9-of-14 from the field while turning in an impressive plus-27 rating. It was his fifth-career triple-double, and the only thing that went wrong was he ended up 0-of-1 from the free-throw line. But that's splitting hairs. Randle certainly looked rejuvenated after the All-Star break. He has made at least seven successful field goals in nine consecutive outings. He'll look to keep it rolling Saturday in Sacramento against the NBA's 20th-ranked scoring defense.
Feb 24 - 2:13 AM

Wilson Chandler pulled down a season-high 16 rebounds in Friday's win over the Spurs, adding 18 points, three assists and four triples in 38 minutes.

This was his third double-double of the season and his fourth career game with at least 16 rebounds -- his career-high is 17 set back in 2010. He's on fire right now and has played 34+ minutes in four straight contests, averaging 18.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.5 triples in that span. He's worth owning while he's hot, but his minutes could be in jeopardy when Paul Millsap (wrist) returns.
Feb 24 - 1:19 AM

Nikola Jokic led the Nuggets to a 122-119 win over the Spurs on Friday, posting his third straight triple-double with 28 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds.

The Joker finished 10-of-16 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line, adding three triples in 34 minutes. Jokic and the Nuggets have now won four straight games and are tied with the Blazers for the No. 6 seed out West. "I think there's some people that understand what Nikola's doing, what we're doing but overall I think a lot of people, they don't even understand what's going on right now in Denver," coach Mike Malone said after the game. Led by Jokic, Gary Harris and Jamal Murray, this team is on the rise and they are only going to become more dangerous with Paul Millsap (wrist) due back soon.
