Rajon Rondo underwent successful ACL surgery on Tuesday.

Rondo's surgery was performed by Dr. James Andrews in Florida, and the initial expectation is that Rondo will be ready to play by training camp. There is a long road between now and training camp, so that timetable is anything but certain to hold true.

Kevin Durant (toe) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

It will be his second straight game on the sidelines, and though the injury isn't serious, this has to be frustrating for his owners. Durant is still listed as day-to-day, so we will update his status as soon as more details become available. Perry Jones will likely draw another start, but he is too unreliable to use in most leagues. Instead, expect Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka to carry the load for the Thunder tonight, and be sure to give them a long look in daily leagues.

Terrence Jones participated in shootaround, and he will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Rockets coach Kevin McHale is a huge fan of Jones' game, but after missing nearly three months of action he will likely be eased into action upon his return. Jones is more than worth a flier in deeper leagues, but it will be interesting to see how coach McHale tweaks his crowded frontcourt rotation that includes Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith and Dwight Howard (ankle).

The Nets released a statement on Wednesday saying that Mirza Teletovic (lungs) will make a full recovery.

He obviously won't play again this season, but this is fantastic news and hopefully this means we will see him back out on the court soon. Teletovic is flying home to New York on Wednesday, and we will continue to track his progress every step of the way. Expect Cory Jefferson, Bojan Bogdanovic and Brook Lopez to see some extra minutes for the foreseeable future.

Jrue Holiday (leg) said that he has no specific timetable for his return, and he remains out indefinitely.

After he missed half of last season with a similar injury, the Pelicans will likely proceed with extreme caution. Holiday should still be stashed in all leagues in the hope that he can return soon, but this report is a little troubling. In the meantime, Tyreke Evans will continue to run the point for New Orleans, while Eric Gordon will handle the ball more as well.

Tyreke Evans (illness) is considered probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He has take over the starting point guard role in the absence of Jrue Holday (leg), so the Pelicans would be in serious trouble If Evans missed this game. Even though Evans will likely end up playing, owners should check back before tip-off just to be safe. Should he miss any time, Nate Wolters and Jimmer Fredette would see an uptick in minutes at point guard, but still wouldn't be ideal options outside of deeper leagues.

The Bucks have signed Jorge Gutierrez to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

He actually played for coach Jason Kidd when he was in Brooklyn, so the move does make some sense. However, Gutierrez likely won't be a big part of the rotation, so owners in most leagues can safely leave him on the wire for now. Also, the Bucks did not have to waive another player in order for this deal to work, as Larry Sander's suspension gave them the ability to add another player. If/when Sanders returns, the Bucks will then have to cut ties with somebody.

John Wall is reportedly dealing with a sore left Achilles, minor ankle sprains on both feet, and he was dealing with a migraine during Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

"He fought through a lot of different things," coach Randy Wittman said of Wall. "He's beat up a little bit. He's under the weather a little bit. But John loves playing. That's why I love that kid. It takes a lot for him to miss a game." To be clear, Wall is not expected to miss any time, but this simply speaks volumes of his toughness. Wall should get a chance to recover during the All-Star break, so his owners shouldn't be too concerned. Feel free to deploy Wall as normal for now, just be sure to stay tuned for updates.
Jan 28 - 10:20 AM

Al Jefferson will join the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

The Hornets have been bringing Big Al off the bench in order to ease him into action since returning from a groin injury, but Bismack Biyombo's knee injury changed their stance. With an increase in minutes, Jefferson should be considered a must-start option in all formats from here on out.

The Thunder are reportedly still weighing the pros and cons of trading Reggie Jackson.

It's not surprising to see the Thunder considering a trade, as Jackson is going to become a restricted free agent in the Summer and they might not be able to afford him. The addition of Dion Waiters only made things worse, as Jackson's minutes have been trending down and he has reportedly had some issues with some of his teammates. Nothing is certain at the moment, but owners in most leagues should consider stashing Jackson for now in the hope that he is traded before the Feb. 19 deadline.
Jan 28 - 9:22 AM

The Kings are said to be active on the phones as the trade deadline approaches, and Derrick Williams and Nik Stauskas are both reportedly on the block.

We knew that Stauskas had been linked in several trade talks, but now it appears that Williams could be on his way out of Sacramento as well. No deal for either player is imminent by any means, but we will be sure to let you know if anything develops. Both Stauskas and Williams would have to be traded to ideal situations to make an impact in fantasy leagues, so owners can use a wait-and-see approach for now.

Klay Thompson stayed hot vs. the Bulls on Tuesday, scoring a team-high 30 points on 13-of-27 shooting with four 3-pointers, 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in a disappointing overtime loss.

Thompson's usage rate is through the roof recently. He's averaging 35.0 points over the Warriors' past four games, on an average of 23.0 field goals and 5.8 free throw attempts per game. He's pouring in 3.2 triples per game this season, on 45.8 percent shooting beyond the arc, a ridiculous percentage which trails only Courtney Lee (46.4 percent) and Kyle Korver (53.1 percent). Those numbers are unquestionably elite.
