Latest Headlines

Both ESPN's Chris Broussard and CBS' Ken Berger are reporting that the Bucks and Hawks are talking about a trade involving Monta Ellis and Josh Smith.

The Hawks reportedly think that Ellis and Jeff Teague would mesh well together in their backcourt. The Bucks, meanwhile, have bigger plans up their sleeve. If they can pry Smith from the Hawks, they'd perhaps then try to trade defensive stopper Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and a pick to the Magic for J.J. Redick. That would leave them with a very solid starting five of Brandon Jennings, Redick, Ersan Ilyasova, Smith and Larry Sanders. It's a potential deal to monitor as the Hawks weigh their options ahead of Thursday's deadline.

Amir Johnson is dealing with a sore right shoulder and is considered questionable to play vs. Detroit on Sunday.

Hassan Whiteside will play against the Bulls on Sunday.

He did say his ankle was at 90 percent, but he has simply been too good to keep out of lineups. We will let you know how his ankle holds up after the game. Chris Andersen's value takes a big hit with this news and can be dropped in most leagues.

Amare Stoudemire suffered a sprained ankle and a sprained wrist during Saturday's game with Charlotte.

"I suffered a sprained ankle and sprained right wrist,’’ Stoudemire said. "It was a lot of physical contact out there. A lot of my moves attacking the basket, I got swiped down on it, caught my wrist almost every time. I tried to play through it but I was struggling. I couldn’t be myself out there.’’ The news just keeps getting worse for Amare, and it's already known that his knee is also a major concern moving forward. At this point it is safe to assume that Amare doesn't have a great shot to play on Monday vs. the Kings, but we will be sure to monitor his status closely. If he does end up sitting, expect to see more of Cole Aldrich, Jason Smith, Lou Amundson and Lance Thomas.

Joakim Noah (ankle) will in fact play against the Miami Heat on Sunday.

You just knew he wouldn't miss the opportunity to play against the Heat and owners can comfortably pencil him into their lineups. Noah has had a underwhelming season so far but his value will only go up if he can avoid another injury. Taj Gibson's value takes a hit with this news, but he is still worth owning in most leagues.

Kemba Walker is set to have an MRI on his knee and surgery is reportedly not off the table.

He has been dealing with a cyst in his left knee since high school so it's very surprising to see it flare up now. There is no indication as to when Walker will be evaluated, but we would expect another report soon. Walker's owners shouldn't panic just yet, and should wait until further details are released before doing anything drastic. Should Walker miss any time, Brian Roberts will likely step into a starting role with Lance Stephenson and Gary Neal also handling the ball more. Stay tuned.

Jose Calderon's (knee) status for Monday's game against Sacramento is uncertain at this point according to coach Derek Fisher.

Coach Fisher did say that Calderon was making good progress, but we would guess that he is closer to doubtful considering that he didn't even make the trip to Charlotte on Saturday. If Calderon is unable to play, Langston Galloway will get another chance to run the show for New York with Shane Larkin picking up a few more minutes off the bench. If you are in need of a guard, Galloway deserves a long look.

There is a "strong belief" within the Pistons that Brandon Jennings tore his left Achilles on Saturday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Sadly, all signs support this claim. Jennings was in agonizing pain at the time of the injury and couldn't put any weight on his leg. Those who have torn their Achilles before have mentioned it felt like being drilled with a baseball in their lower leg, which seemed to be the case for Jennings. The Pistons will conduct an MRI to confirm the damage, but fantasy owners in all re-draft leagues should consider Jennings out for the season. D.J. Augustin is expected to start and is worth owning in all standard leagues. Spencer Dinwiddie will also get more run.

LaMarcus Aldridge looked fantastic in his shocking return to the lineup on Saturday during a 103-96 victory over the Wizards, making 9-of-22 from the field for 26 points with nine rebounds, three assists and two steals in 36 minutes.

He wore a brace on his thumb and didn't seem to be too bothered with his injury. Aldridge was hit on his bad hand a few times and was not in visible pain. Additionally he had some interesting comments today. Before the game, Aldridge said that he is going to try to play through the injury, but he did leave the door open of him changing his mind. Following the game, he said the Blazers losing two games in a row before tonight factored into his decision. Aldridge also said "of course" when he was asked about his thumb hurting. He didn't mention Nicolas Batum (wrist) directly, but reading between the lines suggests that was a factor, too. Aldridge is going to be a volatile fantasy property, but he's a must start player while he's active.

Wesley Matthews extended his league lead for made 3-pointers with five more on Saturday, scoring a total of 19 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and no turnovers.

He is going to play more minutes at small forward, which is fine. Matthews has 10 starts at small forward in his career and he's been shuffled in at small forward even when the Blazers are at full strength. Whatever his role, Iron Man has a chance to lead the NBA in treys this season while launching tons of imaginary arrows.

Nicolas Batum admitted on Saturday that he suffered a torn ligament on the outside of his right wrist on Dec. 17.

It was obvious something was structurally wrong with Batum and now we know what it is. He's aggravated it probably more times than we care to count and the Blazers may still be weighing his treatment options. At this point, he's likely going to miss a week or two. There really isn't a great pickup to make with Batum out.
Jan 25 - 12:51 AM

John Wall scored a team-high 25 points against the Blazers during a 103-96 loss on Saturday, adding four rebounds, nine assists and one steal.

It's his first 20-point game in his last five tries and it was also the first time he was above 50 percent from the field in that span, too. Wall's offensive numbers are going down a bit due to a drop in efficiency and usage rate, but he's still leading the NBA in assists per game with over two steals per game. He's a stud.
