Kyle Lowry, who hasn't played 30 minutes in a game since Dec. 9, came off the bench to hit 1-of-2 shots for two points and four assists in just 17 minutes on Wednesday.

He also left the locker room without speaking to the media, and was the first dude out the door. Just a guess, but he could be livid at Dwane Casey for benching him for Jose Calderon after his triceps injury, and despite saying he has accepted his bench role recently, that may no longer be the case. Something is going to have to give here, but as long as Calderon continues to start (and play well), Lowry will be a risky play until we find out the exact reason his minutes were so low tonight. It doesn't help Lowry's cause that the Raptors are 9-4 over their last 13 games, which were all started by Calderon.

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) has been ruled out to face the Spurs on Thursday night.

He was probable on Wednesday, but was downgraded this morning to questionable. The Nuggets have continuously listed him as probable for several points this season and would play him, but they'll sit him against Kawhi Leonard. Hopefully, it's just a one-day thing for the oft-injured forward. Will Barton should get massive minutes tonight while Jamal Murray and Juan Hernangomez get some decent burn.

Tristan Thompson left Thursday's game in the first half and went straight to the locker room holding his right hand/wrist.

We should have more details within the hour, but for now Thompson sounds iffy to return to the game. He had four rebounds and two blocks before heading for the locker room.

Tony Parker has a sprained ankle and might not play on Thursday, according to Nuggets radio man Jason Kosmicki.

We haven't heard a peep from the San Antonio reporters, so we're not sure what to make of this report. But where there's smoke there's fire, so watch for another update later. The Spurs play the Nuggets at 8:30 in San Antonio, so we should know more soon.

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) is coming off the bench in his return to the lineup on Thursday.

The Knicks will stick with their winning lineup from Wednesday in Boston: Ron Baker, Derrick Rose, Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Kyle O'Quinn. The Knicks are fully expected to limit Porzingis in his return, but he should be in your season-long lineups. We'll see where he gets his minutes with plenty of talk about him playing more center.
Jan 19 - 7:30 PM

Jodie Meeks (right thumb) will not need surgery and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

He suffered two sprained ligaments from the thumb dislocation on Wednesday night. The team added the return date will depend on the response to the treatment. Meeks has filled in for the injured Evan Fournier (heel, foot), so the Magic may have to turn to Mario Hezonja and C.J. Watson. Hezonja is only worth a look in deep leagues for now. Meeks' fantasy owners should probably cut him.
Jan 19 - 6:33 PM

Jeremy Lin (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday against the Pelicans.

We don't even know when Lin is going to practice yet, so he's out indefinitely. Lin has hinted that him missing games is more than just about him being healthy, so the team may want to look at their younger players. Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie have split the minutes for the most part, but neither are worth owning in standard leagues.

An MRI of Joakim Noah's left ankle confirmed a sprain and he will not play on Thursday against the Wizards.

There are no details of a timetable, but the Knicks will likely be taking it easy on their oft-injured veteran. With him out, Kyle O'Quinn will look to bounce back from a dreadful start on Wednesday. He's still worth a look in season-long leagues or for DFS. Plus, Willy Hernangomez should benefit and is worth a look as a punt or pickup in deep leagues.

Rudy Gay suffered a full rupture of the left Achilles tendon and will miss the rest of the season.

He is going to have surgery in the coming days. This is a brutal blow for the Kings, who were in the mix to fight for the eighth seed. It's just as bad for Gay and now he may not opt out of his $14.2 million player option for next season at age 30. For the rest of the season, the Kings may look to Garrett Temple, Anthony Tolliver and Matt Barnes to step up. The last stint Gay missed, it was Temple turning in the best value.

Kevin Love (back) has been ruled out for Thursday against the Suns and James Jones will start in his place.

He was limited in shootaround and was previous listed as questionable. Love did say he wasn't going to miss additional time after his Monday injury, so he's not progressing as expected. Plus, he's had back problems before. There will be more shots to go to LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, but besides that there isn't really a pickup to make with this move.
Jan 19 - 5:25 PM

Mike Muscala (ankle) will not play against the Bulls on Friday.

It will be his third consecutive game out of the lineup due to his ankle sprain from Sunday. The Hawks turned to Kris Humphries to pick up most of the minutes as the backup big. He's played well in his last two, averaging 13.5 points, 4.5 boards and 2.0 treys in 22.0 minutes per game. Humphries probably won't be that good again, but give him a look if you're desperate for a big to stream. Mike Scott has also been in the rotation.
Jan 19 - 4:52 PM

Dwyane Wade is expected to play on Friday vs. the Hawks and on Saturday vs. the Kings.

It's great that he's planning on playing in both games of the back-to-back set, but don't be surprised if his minutes are held in check in both of them. The Bulls will likely make a final decision after Friday's game vs. the Hawks.
