Kawhi Leonard was active in his return from a knee injury on Thursday, scoring 24 points with 14 boards, six assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

He missed two games to rest his sore right knee and the rest obviously did him some good. Kawhi had quadriceps tendinitis back in December and has needed some maintenance days, but he's a beast when he's active. He might get another day off, but he'll be worth starting in all leagues as long as Coach Pop doesn't rest him.

Hollis Thompson (illness) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.

He's been out since Sunday, so this is a bit strange and hopefully he's OK. While he is out, JaKarr Sampson, K.J. McDaniels and Tony Wroten will get more run at shooting guard. Jerami Grant may also play a bit more, but is not a great fantasy option. Thompson is not worth owning in most leagues.

Lance Stephenson (hip) will not play Friday vs. OKC or Saturday vs. Orlando, but is hopeful for Monday's game vs. Milwaukee.

"I think we had a good idea he’d be out longer – it’s a tough [injury] day-to-day; where it is makes it hard to know," coach Steve Clifford said. "[Monday] at the very earliest. He hasn’t been able to do anything. He’s just getting to the point where he can even shoot." Gary Neal, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Gerald Henderson will see an uptick in value with Stephenson sidelined.

Tony Parker (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Parker didn't look good on Christmas, and this is the second game of a back-to-back set, so that probably has something to do with his absence. Cory Joseph will slide into the starting lineup, and he'll make for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

Kawhi Leonard (hand) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Danny Green, Manu Ginobili, Marco Belinelli, and Kyle Anderson will all see extended minutes with Leonard sidelined, with Green offering the most upside out of the group. Coach Gregg Popovich said that Leonard's return will be based on his ability to tolerate the pain, and he remains without an official return date.

Josh Smith has officially signed with Houston, and he's set to make his Rockets debut Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

Smith will likely start which will send Donatas Motiejunas to the bench. However, the Rockets were forced to cut Tarik Black in order to make room for Smith on the roster, so Motiejunas could see some time as Howard's primary backup with Terrence Jones (leg) still on the shelf. Owners of Motiejunas should see how he performs tonight before making the cut.

John Henson (foot) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

Larry Sanders (flu) and Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) have already been ruled out for this one, so the Bucks could really use Henson back in the lineup. However, he's been out since Nov. 25, so his conditioning probably isn't quite there yet. Check back for an official update on Henson's status closer to tip-off, but know that he'll be a risky option in daily leagues despite the opportunity.

Larry Sanders (flu) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

With Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) also unavailable, Zaza Pachulia and Johnny O'Bryant are going to get all the minutes they can handle (which for O'Bryant isn't much). John Henson (foot) has been upgraded to probable, and the Bucks could certainly use him. Pachulia will make for the best play in daily leagues, but he's not a lock for production.
Dec 26 - 12:53 PM

Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

This concussion is coming out of nowhere, and Ilyasova just can't seem to stay healthy. A concussion cost him 21 games last year, so there's some cause for concern with this news. The Bucks frontcourt has been decimated by injuries this season, and they'll have to lean heavily upon Zaza Pachulia and Johnny O'Bryant with current starter Larry Sanders (illness) also not expected to play Friday. John Henson (foot) has been upgraded to probable, so if he could also be forced into minutes tonight.
Dec 26 - 12:49 PM

Deron Williams (calf) will come off the bench for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

Jarret Jack will draw another start on Friday, but he'll be splitting minutes with Williams, so that's going to hurt his upside. Still, over the past two starts Jack put up averages of 16.0 points, 9.0 assists, and 1.5 steals over 37.5 minutes of action, and he makes for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Williams is going to be eased back into the rotation, and given his price tag, he'll be an unattractive option in daily leagues.
Dec 26 - 12:35 PM

Monta Ellis (illness) was not at shootaround, and his status for Friday's game vs. the Lakers has yet to be determined.

Ellis is one of the toughest guys in the league, and hasn't missed a game for the past two seasons, so he'd have to be in really bad shape to miss this one. However, if he is forced to sit, Devin Harris, and J.J. Barea would be the primary beneficiaries. Stay tuned.
Dec 26 - 12:26 PM

Dirk Nowitzki (illness) missed Friday morning's shootaround, and his status for tonight's game vs. the Lakers is not yet known.

Dirk is dealing with a stomach issue, and went to get it checked out this morning. If he's unable to go Friday, Charlie Villanueva and Greg Smith would be in line for extended minutes. Villanueva is coming off an 18-point game, and he'd make for an interesting play in daily leagues with a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers if Dirk is forced to sit. Stay tuned.
