Latest Headlines

Dirk Nowitzki (groin) will play on Monday against the Thunder, as expected.

Dirk won't be at 100 percent but it sounds like he's fairly confident that he won't aggravate the injury. He should be in all lineups unless you're stacked in a weekly league.

Nick Young (ankle) was limited in practice on Friday.

He said he can do some straight-line running, but he can't cut yet. It sounds like Young should be considered questionable to face the Knicks on Sunday afternoon. If he's out, the Lakers will use more Jeremy Lin in the second unit while Wayne Ellington will have more scoring opportunities.
Jan 30 - 3:08 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) is expected to play against the Cavs on Friday.

He is listed as questionable due to an ankle tweak from Wednesday, but there are multiple reports of Cousins being ready to go in a favorable matchup. Cousins was also named to the All-Star Team today, so that's a little extra incentive. If he is active, he'll likely feast.

Mike Dunleavy (ankle) is questionable to play against the Suns on Friday.

Considering how poorly the Bulls were on perimeter defense, one would think coach Tom Thibodeau will want Dunleavy out there. If he does miss his 16th straight game, the Bulls will use more two-PG lineups along with Tony Snell.

Taj Gibson (knee) is probable to play against the Suns on Friday.

He is dealing with right patella tendinitis and it sounds more like a wear-and-tear issue. Gibson played 26 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday and the Bulls might hold him out in the second night of a back-to-back set -- that's not something coach Tom Thibodeau does often and we expect him to play. If he's out, Nikola Mirotic will play more in the late game of the night.

George Hill went through a full practice on Friday, however, he will continue to come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Kings.

Hill is expected to remain with a minutes restriction for Saturday's game, so owners still holding on will need to remain patient as Hill is eased back into the rotation. After Saturday, the Pacers don't play again until Wednesday, and there's a chance his workload is increased for that game. Stay tuned.
Jan 30 - 1:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Nicolas Batum (wrist) is officially being listed as probable for Friday's game against the Hawks.

Batum said earlier that he plans to play, and all signs are pointing towards him giving it a go. Owners can plan on having Batum available, but should note the difficult matchup against the Hawks.
Jan 30 - 1:43 PM

Marco Belinelli (groin) went through roughly 80 percent of Friday's practice, and he is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

Belinelli will likely be eased back into the rotation after spending the past 10 games on the sidelines, so there's not much reason to go and grab him in standard leagues. However, when Belinelli is at 100 percent, he'll likely take away some minutes from Patty Mills and Cory Joseph.
Jan 30 - 1:36 PM

Andrew Bogut (illness) will play on Friday vs. the Jazz, as expected.

Bogut was a full participant during Thursday's practice, as well as Friday morning's shootaround, so go ahead and get him active. He will likely slide back into the starting lineup, which would send Marreese Speights to the bench. His return puts a dent in the value of both Speights and David Lee.
Jan 30 - 1:32 PM

DeMarcus Cousins has been announced as Kobe Bryant's replacement for the All-Star game.

Someone was going to get snubbed in the West, and while Cousins is certainly deserving of his All-Star distinction, Damian Lillard is likely livid. Cousins probably feels a bit relieved to make the squad, but he still likely feels a bit disrespected only making it on the account of Bryant being injured. Both Cousins and Lillard figure to be quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues.
Jan 30 - 1:24 PM

Head coach Dave Joerger said Mike Conley's status for Saturday's game vs. OKC is still unknown at this point.

Conley has missed the past two games with a wrist injury, and the Grizzlies continue to be sparse with providing updates on his status. We should get another update on Conley after Saturday morning's shootaround, and if he's again unavailable, it will be Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes splitting minutes at point guard. Stay tuned.
Jan 30 - 1:13 PM

Anthony Davis (groin) said that he is unsure if he will suit up for Friday's game against the Clippers.

Davis added that will try and do everything in his power to get on the floor tonight, and it's looking like he's destined for the dreaded game-time decision. We'll continue to monitor his status closely, but if he's forced to sit, Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik will all likely see extended minutes for the Pelicans.
