Tyson Chandler (neck) did not participate in shootaround on Tuesday and will be a game-time decision against the Celtics.

Chandler previously expressed optimism regarding his status for Tuesday's game, but his absence from shootaround paints a cloudier picture. It's possible Chandler plays in one of the two back-to-back games the Knicks play Tuesday and Wednesday, so even if he is forced to sit on Tuesday, it's conceivable he'll be back very shortly thereafter. Kenyon Martin would start if Chandler can't go and is averaging 14.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 blocks on 75.8 percent shooting in four starts at center.

The Magic "aren't discouraging" trade offers for Tobias Harris, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

You could really say this about almost any player in the NBA beyond obvious franchise building blocks, but we digress. Harris was re-signed to a 4-year, $64M deal in the offseason, but the Magic are (rightfully) looking into his market with Evan Fournier and Mario Hezonja in the fold. It wouldn't be surprising if Harris is moved, but we would have said the same thing prior to this report, as well. A potential offseason trade seems more likely than a drastic midseason shakeup.

Marc Gasol admitted that he's currently playing through an injury.

"I have some issues, but you have to push through it," Gasol said. "I’m never going to use not being 100 percent as an excuse. It’s just not me. I’m going to push through it and give whatever I have to my team. That’s how I’ve always been, and that’s how it’s going to be." Coach Dave Joerger recently said that Gasol is "playing on one leg," so the All-Star break can't come soon enough for the big man. Through three February games, Gasol is averaging 15.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 blocks on 55.3 percent shooting. Despite the injury concern, selling low doesn't make sense, and Gasol is fully expected to continue playing at less than full strength.

Prior to Sunday's loss to the Celtics, George Karl insisted he wasn't worried about his coaching status.

Maybe he should be. "I don't have any control over what other people are thinking or saying. That's their storm," Karl said. "I don't believe I'm in limbo." Karl has offered a litany of excuses throughout the season, but the reality is he's become predictable, is losing the locker room and the Kings haven't displayed any consistent signs of progress through the first half of the season. Previously it was playoffs or bust for Karl, but he may not even survive through the All-Star break now. Stay tuned.

Pau Gasol is dealing with soreness in his injured left hand.

Gasol returned on Saturday with a bang, scoring 25 points to go along with eight boards, three dimes, two blocks and two triples, but his hand injury isn't quite behind him just yet. "Once I went out and got a feel for the ball and took some shots and warmed up and saw how the hand felt, I knew I'd be a little limited, a little sore at times, but I knew I could be effective and compete," he said. Gasol will likely continue to play with a pad on his injured area, but he'll be out there so long as he doesn't suffer a setback.

Carmelo Anthony (knee) has been assured that the pain in his surgically-repaired knee is "part of the recovery," but he suggested that he might sit out more games to rest his knee.

"I can feel it when I'm out there, as far as the rhythm, mechanically shooting the ball," said Anthony. "It's not aligned for me right now." He has missed three of the Knicks' past eight games and although the All-Star break should help, owners have to prepare for occasional DNPs down the stretch. Melo's recent MRI came back negative and he said on Sunday that he intends to play in the All-Star game, which at least suggests that he's not overly concerned.

Jimmy Butler (strained knee) will not play Monday and he will "likely" miss Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.

Butler met with a team physician on Sunday but the Bulls have not provided an update on his status, and it's unclear whether he'll suit up for the All-Star game. Barring a positive update after Monday's shootaround, owners in weekly leagues should keep Butler on their benches heading into the break. E'Twaun Moore had 17 points, three 3-pointers and seven assists as a starter on Saturday, and he's worth a look as a punt play in DFS.
Feb 7 - 8:21 PM

Chris Paul scored 22 points on 8-of-23 shooting Sunday, to go with seven assists, two rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal and just one turnover in 34 minutes.

Paul couldn't get anything to drop to start the game, going 0-of-9 from the field, but in typical CP3 fashion he connected on eight of his final 14 shot attempts to close out the win. He's going to be a top-3 option moving forward.

Al Jefferson (knee surgery) began non-contact and conditioning drills on Saturday, Jan. 30.

"My lungs hurt," he said, "but it still feels good to get back on the court and get back running again, and don't feel pain when I run." When asked about his return date, Big Al replied, "They said it depends on how I feel. If I had my way, I'd like to get at least one game, maybe two games, in before the break." There have been no indications that Jefferson will play this week, and the Hornets will assuredly be cautious with his return, so owners shouldn't expect to see him until after the All-Star break. If he's still floating on your waiver wire, it's time to think about grabbing him.
Feb 7 - 5:06 PM

Carmelo Anthony (knee) said that he will play in the All-Star game, though he admitted that his knee "[isn't] gonna heal in a week ... or even two weeks."

He recently had a precautionary MRI which ruled out structural damage, and Derek Fisher thinks Melo will be fine "long term," but this is still a huge concern for fantasy owners. New York is five games out of the playoff picture, dropping nine of their past 10 games, and the prospect of a shutdown looms larger with each defeat. His fantasy appeal is tanking, making it hard to extract value in a trade, but owners may want to see what opposing GMs think he's worth.
Feb 7 - 4:52 PM

Elfrid Payton double-doubled with 12 points and 12 assists on Sunday, adding four rebounds, two 3-pointers, one steal, one block and three turnovers through 32 minutes of action.

Payton managed to shoot 5-of-10 from the field in this one, which was a nice surprise for a guy knocking down just 42.0 percent of his shots on the season. The assists were a season-high, but these types of outings have been few and far between for a guy currently ranked well outside the top-150 in standard leagues. Payton's game translates much better to points formats.
Feb 7 - 4:51 PM

Jared Sullinger tied his season high on Sunday with 21 points, making 10-of-13 shots with six rebounds, three steals and one assist in just 23 minutes of action.

Sullinger hadn't scored more than 18 points since Nov. 6, as his shot has abandoned him for long stretches this season -- he's shooting just 41.9 percent overall. This mini-eruption came vs. a Kings team that ranks 22nd in defensive efficiency and first in pace, at 102.1 possessions per game, so it was an ideal matchup for Sullinger. Consistent playing time is the biggest issue for his fantasy value, and that's unlikely to change after one efficient performance.
