A league source tells Ken Berger of CBS Sports that a second round of tests on Larry Sanders' back came back negative.

Sanders remains day-to-day and there appears to be no timeline for his return. The Bucks are expected to re-evaluate his status after the All-Star break, so it'll be a few days before we know anything definitive. As long as Sanders remains sidelined, Samuel Dalembert should be owned in all leagues.

Coach Tom Thibodeau is confident Derrick Rose (hamstring) and Pau Gasol (calf) will play against the Jazz on Monday.

Obviously, we don't really trust Thibs here and Gasol and Rose fantasy owners will want to check back for an update. We'll keep you posted. If Rose is out, Aaron Brooks is a nice play against Trey Burke.

Darren Collison (quad) and Ramon Sessions (knee) are questionable to play against the Pelicans on Tuesday.

He has a contusion to his thigh and he was able to play through it on Saturday. Collision has been a pleasant surprise with 30 assists to go with just five turnovers. if he and Sessions are out, Ray McCallum will be logging some serious minutes.

Rudy Gay (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Tuesday to face the Pelicans.

He is still dealing with right Achilles tendinitis and this issue is not going to go away any time soon. Gay does sound like he has a chance to play, but his owners will want to check back to see if he goes through shootaround. If he's out, Omri Casspi will start.

Nerlens Noel will come off the bench against the Blazers on Monday.

It will be Michael Carter-Williams, Tony Wroten, Luc Mbah a Moute, Henry Sims and Brandon Davies starting tonight. Noel was awful against the Knicks on Saturday and he's simply fouling way too much right now. His fantasy owners should not have confidence in him right now, but he's still worth stashing.

Coach Kevin McHale said he believes Patrick Beverley (hamstring) will be out longer this time compared to his last injury.

He missed four games last time he suffered a hamstring strain, so it sounds like we can rule him out for this week. Beverley has suffered three different hamstring strains so far this year and the Rockets should just sit him down. Isaiah Canaan will get the start while Troy Daniels and Nick Johnson will back him up.

Moe Harkless will start next to Victor Oladipo, Evan Fournier, Channing Frye and Nikola Vucevic on Monday against the Cavs.

It probably has a lot to do with the matchup against LeBron James. Harkless could have a decent game, but avoiding foul trouble will be paramount for his success. He's a risky plug-and-play, but there is at least some upside here. Willie Green will come off the bench.

Xavier Henry has suffered a torn left Achilles and will miss the rest of the season.

He just can't catch a break and it's become really easy to root for him. Henry had a knee injury keep him out for much of last season and also tore ligaments in his wrist at the end of the season. His days with the Lakers are likely over and he may have a tough time catching on with any NBA team next season. Hopefully, he proves everyone wrong.

Andrew Bogut (eye) went through a light practice on Monday and remains questionable for Tuesday against the Heat.

Going through practice is big for Bogut and it does sound like he could play. However, the Warriors didn't really miss him with Marreese Speights playing out of his mind. Owners in weekly leagues should probably consider benching him while Speights carries a lot of risk. The Warriors do have four games this week, so that makes the decision a little tougher.
Nov 24 - 6:02 PM

James Johnson (ankle) will play against the Suns on Monday night.

He has been out since Nov. 16 with what looked like a severe ankle sprain, but Johnson is likely going to see his normal minutes. He was actually turning in mid-round value because of all the defensive stats, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. To be clear, he's not a must-own player and obviously won't be a mid-round guy on the season.
Nov 24 - 5:49 PM

Matt Barnes (calf) will not play against the Hornets on Monday and he could miss a few games.

He's been dealing with a calf issue for about the past week and the Clippers will just sit him down tonight. It'll be second-year swingman Reggie Bullock in the starting lineup, but Jamal Crawford probably benefits most. Barnes is not worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 24 - 5:38 PM

Tobias Harris (calf) will not play on Monday night against the Cavs.

This will be his second game out of the lineup and the Magic will have to tweak their rotation again. Nikola Vucevic had a career game last time out while Elfrid Payton benefitted as Evan Fournier and Victor Oladipo held down the wings. Moe Harkless will also get more burn.
