Brandon Roy, who experienced a setback with his knee and is out indefinitely, acknowledged that he's at a "crossroad" in his career.

It's possible we've seen the last of Roy in the NBA, and the former lottery pick is considering retirement if he can't get his knee right this season. "I look at it at it like this has got to be the last season," he said. "I don't have any regrets because I know I tried to give it another season." Roy could consider coaching in the future, and this is a sad way for his career to potentially end.

Bradley Beal (sore left foot) is questionable to play Monday against the Hornets.

Beal had a hard fall during Saturday's loss to the Pistons, and while an MRI taken on his left knee came back clean, he's now dealing with soreness in his left foot. It's worth noting that the leg that has caused him to miss so much time in the past is his right leg, so this is technically to his good leg. He's likely headed for a game-time call, but if Beal is forced to the sidelines, Sheldon McClellan could move into the starting lineup, while John Wall and Markieff Morris would do the heavy lifting on offense. Stay tuned.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) is on track to play Monday vs. the Kings.

Stan Van Gundy gave him the probable tag, and he looked fine while going through his pregame routine (video below), so owners can go ahead and plan on having him active for tonight's game against the Kings. Reggie Bullock will head back to the bench with KCP active, and Stanely Johnson will lose some minutes. Check back for an official update closer to tip-off.

Gary Harris (ankle) and Darrell Arthur (knee) are probable to play Tuesday vs. Utah.

Harris looked fantastic in his return from a three-game absence on Sunday, and the probable tag in Denver means he'll play. Arthur hasn't looked any worse for the wear in his previous two outings, but he doesn't have any fantasy value in standard leagues. Harris was supposed to have a minutes restriction on Sunday, but ended up logging 35 minutes, which suggests the ankle issue is completely behind him. Make sure he's not sitting on your waiver wire.
Jan 23 - 5:25 PM

Emmanuel Mudiay (back) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

Mudiay missed Sunday's game with the back issue, which resulted in Jameer Nelson moving into the starting lineup and Jamal Murray logging extending minutes with the second unit. If Mudiay is out again on Tuesday, it'll be more of the same. Check back for another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround.
Jan 23 - 4:43 PM

Joel Embiid (left knee bruise) is expected to play Friday vs. the Rockets.

While Embiid is officially being listed as doubtful for Tuesday, Brett Brown has already acknowledged that he will not take the court for Tuesday's game against the Clippers, nor will he play Wednesday in Milwaukee. However, it sounds like this will only be a two-game absence for The Process. Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor will pick up most of the center minutes in his absence, and Richaun Holmes may be able to see limited minutes in the rotation. Noel is the primary beneficiary here.
Jan 23 - 4:09 PM

Dwyane Wade is expected to play on Tuesday vs. the Magic and Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

The Bulls will likely limit his minutes in one game of the back-to-back set just like they did in their previous set -- Wade played 20 minutes against the Hawks on Jan. 20 and 35 minutes vs. the Kings on Jan. 21. Just keep in mind that the lopsided score was a factor in the Atlanta game. Wade is safe to deploy in season-long leagues, but he's very risky in DFS.
Jan 23 - 1:43 PM

D.J. Augustin (ankle) will undergo an MRI on Monday.

He's walking "gingerly" without the use of crutches, but we should get an update on his timetable later this evening. For now, it sounds like he's closer to doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls. If Augustin misses time, Elfrid Payton and C.J. Watson will log heavy minutes in the backcourt and coach Frank Vogel may finally have no choice but to give Mario Hezonja some burn.
Jan 23 - 1:19 PM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) will miss the next two games for the Raptors.

This means he will not play on Tuesday vs. the Spurs or on Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies. He's not in a walking boot and will be re-evaluated prior to Friday's game vs. the Bucks, so he should be considered day-to-day. Kyle Lowry's usage rate rises from 23.3 to 27.2 when DeRozan is off the court, so he's poised for a big week. Expect Norman Powell and Terrence Ross to pick up DeRozan's minutes on the wings, and we could see some more two-PG lineups as well which would give Cory Joseph a slight bump.
Jan 23 - 12:58 PM

Jahlil Okafor (knee) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Okafor was limited at Monday's practice because of right knee soreness, but he has a big week ahead of him with Joel Embiid (knee) considered doubtful for Tuesday and out for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. As a starter this season, Okafor has averaged 13.4 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 blocks, and his ceiling is higher when Embiid is off the court. Nerlens Noel also looks like a nice play this week and should split the center minutes with Okafor.
Jan 23 - 12:56 PM

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will miss all four games this week.

This means the earliest we will see Bradley back in action is on Jan. 30 vs. the Pistons, but that's not a lock either. Bradley has been incredible all season with top-40 value in standard leagues, so his owners just need to stay afloat until he returns. Marcus Smart looks like a strong short-term add, but just keep in mind that he's shooting 36.0 percent from the field this season. Terry Rozier also gets a slight bump.
Jan 23 - 12:54 PM

Joel Embiid (knee) is doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers and will not travel for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks.

Despite the doubtful tag, coach Brett Brown said Embiid will not play Tuesday. He wasn't going to travel on Wednesday prior to the injury anyways, so nothing has changed in that regard. The good news is the 76ers are still calling the issue a left knee contusion, so Embiid is day-to-day and Brown said the team is just being cautious. He was not able to practice on Monday, but his next chance to play will be on Friday vs. the Rockets. Jahlil Okafor (knee) and Nerlens Noel will likely split the center minutes in Embiid's absence, with Noel having the higher upside in standard leagues. For what it's worth, Embiid was getting up some shots at the practice facility without a limp.
