Courtney Lee (ankle) will not play against the Grizzlies on Saturday and hopes to play on Tuesday.

"The swelling went down a lot [but] I wouldn’t be able to go anyway. I can go forward but not laterally," Lee said. He suffered a "mild" ankle sprain and it looks like it swelled up on him. Lee was already trending down a bit, so he's a candidate to cut in many formats. Jason Terry and Jordan Crawford should see more playing time, especially if Lee's MRI reveals something more than an ankle sprain.

Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Jan 17 - 6:50 PM

Taj Gibson (sore left ankle) will miss Tuesday's matchup with the Mavs, and Paul Zipser is expected to get the start in his place.

Zipser only saw 15 minutes of action in his previous start, so we wouldn't get too hyped up about him sticking in the starting five. Nikola Mirotic (illness) will be returning from a four-game absence today, and it'll likely be him and Doug McDermott splitting the majority of Gibson's minutes. Fred Hoiberg described Gibson's absence as precautionary and said it's unlikely that he'll need to undergo an MRI, so chances are he'll be able to return to the court for Friday's game in Atlanta.

Corey Brewer will start in place of Ryan Anderson (illness) on Tuesday night vs. Miami.

Brewer has started six games for the Rockets this season; however, his stats in those starts are not encouraging. He is averaging 3.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 18.6 minutes over those six contests. Brewer's overall numbers are down in 2016-17. He is averaging 4.1 points and has scored more than 10 points just once all season. He should see 20-plus minutes tonight but is still a risky play even as DFS punt.

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

Corey Brewer will move into the starting five sans Anderson, with Trevor Ariza shifting over to the four-spot, and both James Harden and Eric Gordon will see an uptick to their respective usage rates. Tuesday will be the first game of a back-to-back set, so Anderson doesn't have much time to rest up for Wednesday's game against the Bucks. For now we'll be considering him questionable, and his owners will need to check back for another update closer to Wednesday's tip.

Omri Casspi will miss the next 1-2 weeks of action with a right calf injury.

Casspi randomly moves in and out of the rotation in Sacramento, so this injury won't have any major consequences in fantasy hoops.

The Timberwolves are reportedly actively shopping Ricky Rubio.

The Wolves are reportedly trying to package Rubio and Shabazz Muhammad in order to bring in another guard that would initially start, but eventually, accept a backup role behind Minnesota's No. 5 overall pick Kris Dunn. Thus far the Kings have been the only team to express strong interest in acquiring Rubio, but the Wolves don't like what they can offer, and there's reportedly no traction between those two clubs on the trade front. It's tough to predict what Rubio's outlook will look like on another team, but this report firmly puts Dunn on the radar as a quality deep league stash.

Evan Fournier (heel) and Bismack Biyombo (knee) are being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

Fournier missed five straight games with this same injury earlier this month, and that wasn't enough time off to get himself right, so he could miss more time this time around. Considering he's only sat out the past two, we feel he's much closer to doubtful for Wednesday's game, but we should get another update after shootaround. Biyombo had a nasty fall on Monday, and while he played through it, it looks like the knee swelled up on the flight to New Orleans.

Phil Jackson reportedly met with Carmelo Anthony on Tuesday to ask him if he wants to remain in New York.

A source of Ramona Shelburne described the meeting as "far more contentious" than previous sit downs, and it looks like things in New York are reaching a boiling point with the Knicks falling out of the playoff hunt, and a Jackson confidant Charley Rosen recently publishing an extremely negative piece on Melo stating he's "outlived his usefulness in New York." Time and again Melo has stated that his desire is to remain with the Knicks and that he's not interested in waiving his no-trade clause, and neither of those sentiments changed during Tuesday's meeting.
Jan 17 - 3:40 PM

Steven Adams (concussion) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

To be clear, this report is coming from the game notes, which are notoriously unreliable, so we'd recommend checking back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Jerami Grant got the start in his place on Monday night vs. the Clippers, although the game was a massive blowout, so head coach Billy Donovan might want to rethink that strategy. If Adams can't give it a go on Wednesday, both Grant and Enes Kanter should see an uptick in minutes. Stay tuned.
Jan 17 - 3:27 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) could get back to the court for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Head coach Jeff Hornacek also hinted that he'd like to start Porzingis at center with Carmelo Anthony moving to the four-spot, a move that would result in Joakim Noah going to the bench, and that demotion likely wouldn't go over very well with the underperforming 31-year-old center who is due $17 million this season. The losses in New York have been piling up as of late, so Hornacek needs to make some changes, even if it upsets the veterans.
Jan 17 - 3:15 PM

Luke Walton is that skeptical Larry Nance (knee) will be able to get back to the court this week.

Nance recently went through some 1-on-1 work with Ivica Zubac, but he's still yet to go through a full practice with the team, and until that happens he won't be getting back to the court. As long as Nance is on the sidelines, Julius Randle will continue to see his playing time in the mid-30s.
