Brandon Rush will have ACL surgery in New York on Wednesday.

Rush hopes to return for the start of the 2013-14 season, but we should have a more precise timetable after the surgery. He blew out the knee in November, but delayed surgery long enough for his damaged MCL to heal.

Tony Allen (ankle) will not play in Tuesday's game against Dallas.

Allen was recently benched in favor of Jeff Green, so this newscertainly doesn't help his already limited value. Expect Courtney Lee, Jeff Green and Vince Carter to pick up the slack or Memphis on Tuesday.

Mike Conley (wrist) will dress for Tuesday's game against Dallas, but is unlikely to play.

Owners should probably keep Conley on the bench tonight, as he will likely serve as Emergency depth for the Grizzlies. Beno Udrih will draw the start in his absence, and should be considered in most leagues for owners in need of short-term value. Nick Calathes, Courtney Lee and Vince Carter should all benefit as well.

The Pistons are emerging as a suitor for Norris Cole.

The Pistons just lost Brandon Jennings (Achilles) for the season, so they could definitely use some depth in their backcourt. Cole has found himself out of the rotation in Miami, as they have opted to go with Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier instead. It probably wouldn't take much for the deal to work, but the Hornets are also said to be interested in Cole. We will continue to follow this story closely, but owners in standard leagues can safely leave Cole on the wire for now, as he likely wouldn't start no matter where he ends up.

The All-Star Slam Dunk contest will include Mason Plumlee, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Victor Oladipo, and Zach LaVine.

It's definitely an intriguing group to watch this season, but it's no secret that the dunk contest has lost a lot of steam in recent years, so hopefully these players turn that around. Plumlee, Giannis and Oladipo have been must-own players this season, but rookie Zach LaVine has had a tough time adapting to life in the NBA. LaVine should be in his element for this contest though, and should be considered to be the favorite to win the competition.

Hassan Whiteside is expected to replace Chris Andersen (elbow, back) in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

Whiteside is coming off a massive tripe-double from Sunday, and he'll look to keep the momentum going with a favorable matchup against the Bucks on Tuesday. Make sure you have him active, and give him a look if you're playing in any daily leagues.
Jan 27 - 6:02 PM

Chris Andersen (elbow, back) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. Milwaukee.

With Andersen unavailable, Hassan Whiteside will likely slide into the starting lineup and he'll make for a fantastic plug-and-play option in daily leagues coming off a monster triple-double on Sunday.
Jan 27 - 5:58 PM

Luol Deng (sore calf) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

Danny Granger is expected to slide into the starting lineup with Deng sidelined, but with averages of just 4.7 points on 41.7 percent shooting with the starting unit this season, there's not much to like here. James Ennis will also see some increased opportunity, but he's been far too inconsistent to rely upon in most leagues. Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will be tasked with more responsibilities on offense, and they look like the best plays in daily leagues with Deng unavailable.
Jan 27 - 5:51 PM

Dwight Howard tweaked his right ankle during Tuesday's practice, and remains a game-time decision for Wednesday's game vs. Dallas.

"It wasn’t as bad as when it happened, but I had to sit out of practice, so we’ll see how it feels [Wednesday]," Howard said. "Hopefully I can play, but if not, we still have a great chance to win the game." While Joey Dorsey would draw the start if Howard sits, Josh Smith and Donatas Motiejunas would see the biggest increase in value.

Paul Pierce (toe) did not participate during shootaround, and he is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

Pierce has been dealing with a nagging toe injury since Dec. 4, and with the Wizards set to play a team owning a record of 12-33, there's a good chance the veteran is rested tonight. If he sits, Otto Porter could slide into the starting lineup, with Martell Webster and Rasual Butler seeing some increased opportunity. Stay tuned.
Jan 27 - 4:46 PM

John Wall (sore left Achilles) did not participate during shootaround, and is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

This is the first time we're hearing of any Achilles soreness for Wall, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. It's worth noting that Wall has yet to miss a game since the 2012-13 season, but with the Wizards going up against a hapless Lakers squad, there's certainly a chance Washington gives their franchise-player some rest tonight. Andre Miller would likely draw the start if Wall is forced to sit, with Bradley Beal also seeing some increased opportunity.
Jan 27 - 4:40 PM

Updating a previous report, Nick Young is currently undergoing an MRI on his sprained right ankle, and is looking unlikely for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

We'll have a better idea of Young's status once the results of the MRI are released, but at this point it would be shocking if he's able to play. The Lakers are currently calling his injury a moderate sprain, and if he's forced to sit, Wayne Ellington, Jordan Clarkson, and Jeremy Lin would all stand to benefit. Stay tuned.
