Latest Headlines

The standoff between Royce White and the Rockets is close to an end and White says he expects to report to Houston's D-League affiliate Feb. 11, the Houston Chronicle reports.

White told 97.9 The Box in Houston that he's waiting for "paperwork" that will outline a plan for Royce's return. "The resolution, when I say we’re in the 12th hour, what I literally mean is we’re in the 12th hour ... any hour now this thing will be over," White told the radio station. A person with knowledge of that plan told the Chronicle the paperwork in question is an amended version of the document White reportedly asked for earlier in January that would add extra mental health protocols to his standard NBA contract. Rockets GM Daryl Morey didn't comment on the report when reached by the paper.

Mason Plumlee was bleeding above his right eye late in the fourth quarter on Saturday against the Rockets and did not return.

He caught an elbow from Montrezl Harrell and went to the locker room to be stitched up. Plumlee didn't look like he was hit hard enough to have a concussion or anything, so expect him to be ready for Monday. Plumlee finished with 10 points, eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 24 minutes.
Feb 6 - 7:37 PM

James Harden suffered an apparent minor right hand injury on Saturday, finishing with 33 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block, four 3-pointers and 10 turnovers.

He had ice on his hand for most of the fourth quarter because the Rockets were blown out tonight. Harden did play through his hand issue for a few minutes before going to the bench, so chances are this is minor. He also took the ice pack off his hand for the final two minutes. For now, there shouldn't be much concern, but you never know when it comes to a hand injury. We'll pass along any info if he needs an X-ray.

Pau Gasol (hand) will play on Saturday vs. the Wolves.

He was in good spirits during the warmups so it sounds like his hand is good to go. His return to the lineup will send Cameron Bairstow to the bench, while Bobby Portis will also lose several minutes with this report. Gasol should be activated in all lineups.
Feb 6 - 7:32 PM

Mike Dunleavy (back) will make his season debut against the Wolves on Saturday.

He said "I'm back" at his locker, so Mike apparently wants to be like Mike. His minutes should be limited with so much time away from NBA game action, so he's not someone worth owning in most leagues just yet. His return takes away from E'Twaun Moore and Tony Snell.
Feb 6 - 7:06 PM

Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (foot, ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Bulls.

These guys are not close to a return. Martin may have played his last minutes with the Wolves as the trade deadline approaches. Zach LaVine will get close to 30 minutes tonight and is worth owning in standard leagues.
Feb 6 - 6:36 PM

Pau Gasol (hand) and Mike Dunleavy (back) are game-time calls vs. the Wolves on Saturday.

They will both warm up before a final decision will be made on their status. If Gasol is held out for the second straight game, Bobby Portis will be the primary beneficiary even though Cameron Bairstow will likely start.
Feb 6 - 6:35 PM

Bradley Beal is coming off bench on Saturday against the Hornets.

That will put Garrett Temple in the starting lineup. It's also a decent indication that Beal might not be over 30 minutes like he was on Friday. Beal is still a guy to use in season-long leagues, but he lost a lot of DFS appeal with this news.
Feb 6 - 6:27 PM

Tyreke Evans (knee) has been shut down until the All-Star break.

"Hopefully he’ll be ready to go right after the All-Star break and we’ll be able to play him for the rest of the stretch [of the schedule]," coach Alvin Gentry said. His owners should stash him in an IR spot, but it's still possible that he could be shut down during the final weeks of the season if the Pelicans are not in the playoff hunt. In the meantime, Bryce Dejean-Jones will continue to start and is worth a look in deeper leagues. Jrue Holiday will benefit as well.

Dante Cunningham will start on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers, sending Alonzo Gee to the bench.

The Pelicans have lost three straight games, so coach Alvin Gentry is looking to shake things up. Cunningham isn't very involved in the offense and has very little upside, so he's safe to ignore in most leagues. Gee can be dropped almost everywhere.
Feb 6 - 6:13 PM

Jimmy Butler (left knee) was diagnosed with a knee strain and did not suffer damage to his ligaments.

This is great news, but he is out Friday and Saturday. The diagnosis of a strain means it's something muscle related or it could be something with a tendon near his joint. Butler doesn't have a timetable to return, but it looks like he at least has a chance to be back this month. This may hurt his chance to play in the All-Star Game. Mike Dunleavy (back) should benefit while E'Twaun Moore and Tony Snell could help out. Derrick Rose will be very busy, too.
Feb 6 - 6:10 PM

Nene (calf) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday night.

He tried warming up but calf was still too painful. The Wizards are probably going to want to shut him down if he can't make it through a warmup. Drew Gooden and Dejuan Blair figure to get a handful of minutes.
