Sources told ESPN's Marc Stein that the Clippers would not be willing to trade Eric Bledsoe and DeAndre Jordan for Kevin Garnett.

Garnett has been adamant that he will not waive his no-trade clause, and Stein writes that he believes KG is intent on remaining in Boston. We feel similarly, especially if the Clippers aren't willing to move both Bledsoe and Jordan for Garnett. We wouldn't bet on a Garnett deal prior to the deadline, but stranger things have happened.

Carmelo Anthony will start vs. the Pacers on Thursday.

The Knicks are currently in the second game of a back-to-back set, so the fact that Melo is playing is certainly an encouraging sign. Anthony is still capable of putting up amazing stats when in uniform, so owners should really use this as a selling point as the shut-down talks aren’t going away any time soon.
Jan 29 - 5:42 PM

Cole Aldrich (shin) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pacers.

With Aldrich unavailable, Louis Amundson will get all the run he can handle, with Jason Smith and Lance Thomas seeing some extended minutes.
Jan 29 - 5:38 PM

George Hill will remain on his 20 minutes per game limit until Saturday, after which the Pacers hope to increase his workload.

While Hill has been limited to 20 minutes per game over his last three outings, he's still been able to put up serviceable numbers, averaging 14.3 points, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.0 three-pointer per game. He'll have a favorable matchup against the Knicks tonight, so feel free to roll him out there.
Jan 29 - 5:37 PM

C.J. Miles (groin) will play in short stretches for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks.

It sounds like he's going to come off the bench, as Frank Vogel would like to ease him back into the rotation. Although he has a favorable matchup against the Knicks tonight, the minutes limit makes him a risky option in daily leagues.
Jan 29 - 5:28 PM

Nicolas Batum's (wrist) status for Friday's game against the Hawks is unknown at this point.

Batum is likely headed for another game-time decision, but owners can expect another update on his status following Friday morning's shootaround. If Batum is forced to sit, there will be more touches on offense for Damian Lillard, Wesley Matthews, and LaMarcus Aldridge.
Jan 29 - 5:18 PM

J.J. Redick (back) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans, but he will try and play.

Doc Rivers said that he's hopeful to have Redick available for Friday, so it's looking like he has a good chance of suiting up. We'll have a better idea of Redick's status following Friday morning's shootaround, but his return to action would likely send Jamal Crawford back to the bench, and he'd see a minor decrease in value.
Jan 29 - 4:55 PM

Evan Turner (thumb) was not a participant during Thursday's practice.

Turner played during the Celtics' last game despite the thumb issue, so we'll consider him probable for Friday's game against Houston. However, with a tough matchup against Patrick Beverley, and a busy schedule on Friday, there are probably better options you can plug into your active roster tomorrow.
Jan 29 - 3:47 PM

Avery Bradley (thumb, hand) did not practice on Thursday.

Bradley was able to fight through his ailments during Boston's last game, and he ended up logging 37 minutes. His absence from practice is likely to just get him some rest, and we'll be considering him on the probable side of questionable for Friday's game vs. Houston. Stay tuned.
Jan 29 - 3:44 PM

Gordon Hawyard (sinus congestion) did not practice on Thursday, but he is expected to play Friday vs. the Warriors.

Sinus congestion seems about as minor of an ailment as they come, so owners should not be fretting about him missing any game-time action. He will however have a tough matchup against Golden State on Friday, so that is something to consider for people playing daily leagues.
Jan 29 - 3:16 PM

Steve Kerr said that Andrew Bogut (illness) went through practice on Thursday, and that he is good to go for Friday's game against Utah.

Bogut will likely slide back into the starting lineup upon his return, which will hurt the value of both Marreese Speights and David Lee.
Jan 29 - 3:01 PM

Lakers' GM Mitch Kupchak said that Kobe Bryant will be ready for training camp next season.

"We spoke last night, he's in great spirits," said Kupchak of Bryant. "He's excited about the prognosis and being ready for training camp. The big key is we have to improve the talent level on the team." This is an interesting statement, because Kobe's initial timetable of nine months would have him out until November of next year. Kupchak also said that retirement was not discussed when talking with Kobe, and we'll continue to track The Black Mambas' status closely on his road to recovery.
