Tim Duncan was diagnosed with a sprained right ankle and a sprained left knee after Saturday's game.

He'll be re-evaluated Sunday and will likely have an MRI to confirm the diagnosis. Spurs doctors told Wizards coach Randy Wittman after the game that Duncan "is going to be fine," but his injury comes on the heels of a four-game absence and there's a good chance he'll miss some time. Gregg Popovich isn't going to play his star big man at anything less than 100 percent, so Duncan owners should be planning to sit him while hoping his MRI comes back clean. The good news is that the Spurs are off until Wednesday.

Stephen Curry was en fuego during the Warriors 118-98 blowout victory over the Magic, tallying 27 points, seven 3-pointers, four boards, six assists and three turnovers in 30 minutes of floor time.

Orlando had precisely zero answers for Curry in this one, as he regularly lit them up from beyond the arc (as per usual) and also showcased his elite passing and decision making abilities during the blowout win. He was the primary factor in Golden State going off for 42 points during the third quarter (their 11th time scoring at least 40 points in a quarter this season), and he may have had an even crazier game if it weren’t for the lopsided score.

Rick Carlisle said that while Andrew Bogut (hamstring) will miss Sunday's game against the Lakers, there's a chance he could get back out there sometime next week.

Sunday will mark Bogut's sixth straight game on the sidelines, but it sounds like he should be able to get back out there for at least one game of Dallas' upcoming Wednesday-Thursday back-to-back set. Bogut's return will significantly cut into Salah Mejri and Dwight Powell's minutes.

J.J. Barea (left calf strain) is likely out until the All-Star break according to coach Rick Carlisle.

This isn't a surprise because Barea can't seem to shake this calf issue. With Barea out, Deron Williams and Seth Curry are locked into a heavy workload for the foreseeable future and should be owned in standard leagues. Devin Harris will also play more, but he's not an attractive fantasy asset.

Steven Adams (concussion) is traveling to Utah for Monday's game against the Jazz.

There's no word that he's officially cleared the league mandated concussion protocol testing, but him traveling with the team is an encouraging sign. Owners can expect to get another update following Monday morning's shootaround, and if he is able to get back to the court, Jerami Grant would more than likely return to the bench.
Jan 22 - 2:05 PM

Tyler Johnson (left shoulder strain) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

Johnson missed more than half of the 2015-16 season after having surgery on his left shoulder before ultimately returning for the playoffs, so this is a concern. However, the Heat are listing him as day-to-day for now. Coach Erik Spoelstra also downplayed the injury on Saturday and said that Johnson is not planning to get X-rays or an MRI. If Johnson is out Monday, Dion Waiters will be the primary beneficiary and he's coming off a monster 33-point effort against the Bucks.

Blake Griffin (knee) has been upgraded from "out" to "doubtful" for Monday's game vs. the Hawks.

Griffin has made it clear that he intends to return this week, so if we don't see him on Monday he could make his return to the lineup on Tuesday vs. the 76ers. The Clippers play a total of three times in Week 14, so starting Griffin in weekly formats is a bit too risky unless we get word that he will give it a go on Monday. Luc Mbah a Moute, Austin Rivers, Marreese Speights and Brandon Bass all take a hit with Griffin nearing a return, but Rivers is still worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 22 - 1:17 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) was able to practice on Sunday.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said he's unsure of KCP's status for Monday's game vs. the Kings, but it sounds like he's on the verge of returning from a four-game absence. If KCP is able to give it a go on Monday, both Stanley Johnson and Reggie Bullock will lose most of their value. KCP should be stashed in all standard leagues.
Jan 22 - 1:12 PM

D.J. Augustin (ankle) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

X-rays were negative and the Magic are calling the injury a right ankle sprain. Augustin was able to walk gingerly under his own power to the locker room, so hopefully it's not too serious. He finished with zero points, one assist and one rebound in five minutes. Elfrid Payton and C.J. Watson will log a ton of minutes the rest of the game and we may see more of Mario Hezonja as well.
Jan 22 - 12:55 PM

D'Angelo Russell will spend the next 1-2 weeks on the sidelines with a mildly sprained right knee and a strained left calf.

He's going to re-evaluated in one week, but given the way the Lakers have handled injuries this season, it seems unlikely that Russell will be getting back to the court prior to the two-week mark. With Russell on the sidelines, Lou Williams and Brandon Ingram will see some more opportunity on the offensive end, and Jordan Clarkson could be looking at some starts. For what it's worth, Russell required the PRP injection in his left knee, so this new injury is technically to his good knee.

Anthony Davis (right quad) is expected to play on Monday vs. the Cavaliers according to coach Alvin Gentry.

Davis missed his second practice in a row on Sunday, but the Pelicans are likely just being cautious with their franchise center. Gentry said Davis' injury is "basically a charley horse," but keep in mind that he's been battling through an absurd amount of other ailments recently. While Davis said he's getting better every day, he added that he's still sore and is "not sure" about his status. Davis will be officially listed as questionable. Regardless of his status, Terrence Jones should be owned as an elite handcuff.
Jan 22 - 12:15 PM

Danilo Gallinari (ankle) is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Wolves.

When a player is probable on the injury report in Denver they are usually a lock to play, but just keep in mind that this is second night of a back-to-back set. Gallinari's ankle issue has lingered all week, but he has been playing well and had 18 points with four rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes on Saturday. Juancho Hernangomez will be in the rotation if Gallo is held out.
