Pau Gasol underwent an ultrasound on his right foot Tuesday and has been cleared to begin working out on the elliptical machine.

Gasol is no longer using crutches, but earlier Wednesday coach Mike D'Antoni threw cold water on the idea that Gasol was somehow ahead of schedule. The Spaniard is three weeks into the initial timetable of six to eight weeks, which D'Antoni said hasn't changed. The earliest Gasol could return is likely late-March, but that's pretty optimistic. Owners can feel safe moving on from Gasol if they had picked him up in hopes of a quick return.

Miles Plumlee will start over Greg Monroe for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

Jason Kidd said that Plumlee has been a "plus" for the Bucks while on the floor this season and that he needs to "find time to get [Miles] more minutes," so perhaps he's set to earn more minutes in Kidd's wonky rotations. However, with Greg Monroe fully healthy, Plumlee is unlikely to earn enough minutes to make a difference in standard leagues, and owners in most leagues can use a wait-and-see approach here.

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will start Tuesday vs. the Celtics, sending Michael Carter-Williams to the bench.

The Bucks will roll out a starting five of Mayo, Kris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Miles Plumlee for Tuesday's game with MCW and Greg Monroe coming off the bench. It'll be interesting to see how many minutes Jason Kidd gives Mayo given that O.J. has spent the past 11 games on the sidelines, but Carter-Williams' minutes look ready to take a hit with both Mayo and Jerryd Bayless active.

Greg Monroe will come off the bench behind Miles Plumlee for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

Well this is about the most Jason Kidd move of all time. Kidd did say that Monroe will see just as many minutes as he usually does, "if not more," coming off the bench so owners shouldn't hesitate to fire him up for tonight's matchup with the Celtics. Plumlee isn't much of a stat sheet stuffer, so owners in most leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with the four-year veteran.
Feb 9 - 6:44 PM

Nene (calf) and Kris Humphries (knee) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

Nene isn't really capable of playing much more than 20 minutes, which isn't enough time for him to produce reliable fantasy value in most settings. Humphries will likely be eased back into the rotation following a month long absence, and he isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 9 - 6:41 PM

Jae Crowder (ankle) will play Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

"This is the most opportunity he's ever gotten," said Brad Stevens on Crowder. "He's a versatile player." He'll continue to fight through the pain, and is safe to active in all leagues.
Feb 9 - 6:40 PM

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) will warm up with the intention of playing Tuesday vs. the Spurs, although he remains a game-time decision.

Whiteside's suffered a minor ankle tweak during Sunday's game, but head coach Erik Spoelstra said after Monday's practice that he could play "big minutes" vs. San Antonio, so it sounds like he'll be out there tonight. He will, however, come off the bench as Spoelstra said he'll go with the same starting five of Goran Dragic, Dwyane Wade, Luol Deng, Amare Stoudemire and Chris Bosh for Tuesday's game.
Feb 9 - 6:23 PM

Luol Deng (illness) and Udonis Haslem (illness) will "give it a go" Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Deng sat out Tuesday morning's shootaround with the illness, but that won't stop him from missing Tuesday's matchup against San Antonio. He has a horrible matchup, so Deng isn't a great DFS target.
Feb 9 - 6:21 PM

Lance Thomas (concussion) has been cleared to play for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

Thomas has spent the past two games on the sidelines, but he'll be back on the court tonight. However, he's not a fantasy option in most leagues while Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Williams are healthy.
Feb 9 - 6:19 PM

Noah Vonleh (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

Vonleh's return could push Moe Harkless back to the bench, and is his value will take a significant hit with the return to the second-unit. Vonleh is averaging just 16 minutes per game as Portland's starting power forward and isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 9 - 6:05 PM

Kyle Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

With Anderson on the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for David West and Boris Diaw. None of these guys can be considered viable targets in standard leagues.
Feb 9 - 6:04 PM

Marc Gasol reportedly has a broken right foot and will be out indefinitely.

Oh man, the Grizzlies were initially calling this a foot sprain, but obviously the injury turned out to be much worse. Foot injuries for seven-footers are never good, and this could potentially be a season-ending injury for the Memphis big man. Jeff Green and Matt Barnes are going to see a minutes boost with Marc out, with Zach Randolph and Mike Conley being asked to do the heavy lifting on offense. Matt Barnes should be considered a must-add here. Brandan Wright (knee) also should be in the rotation once he gets back from his injury, although he's a wait-and-see guy in most formats.
