Chauncey Billups (groin) returned to practice on Tuesday and could play on Wednesday against the Timberwolves.

Vinny Del Negro said "it's all about how he feels tomorrow," but added that "he looked pretty good." Billups' return would push Willie Green back to the bench, and we're considering him questionable until we get an update following shootaround.

Joakim Noah said on Tuesday that both his knee and ankle are feeling good, and he is feeling the best he has felt physically all season.

Noah sprained his ankle back on Jan. 14, and he's been dealing with discomfort in his surgically repaired left knee throughout the season, so it's nice to hear that he's finally feeling healthy. However, he's nowhere near the player he was last year as a primary component of the Bulls offense with Derrick Rose now running the show, and Pau Gasol stealing some of his thunder. His averages of 7.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.5 blocks per game aren't likely to improve much as the season progresses.

Nicolas Batum (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

Batum perhaps could use some rest as he's been shooting a career-low 38.8 percent from the field this season while dealing with a torn ligament on the outside of his right (shooting) wrist. If he's forced to sit, look for Wesleyu Matthews, Damian Lillard, and LaMarcus Aldridge to get some more opportunities on offense.

Mike Dunleavy (ankle) will miss Tuesday's game against the Warriors

The Bulls were already looking at a short-handed roster with Jimmy Butler (illness) questionable for Tuesday, so Tony Snell, Aaron Brooks, Kirk Hinrich, and potentially Nikola Mirotic could see big minutes against the Warriors.

Deron Williams (ribs) will miss Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

Williams was able to participate in the non-contact parts of practice on Tuesday, but he will miss his tenth consecutive game on Wednesday. Jarrett Jack will again get the start in D-Will's place and will likely continue to start in the short-term once Williams returns as the Nets ease him back into the rotation.

Mike Conley (wrist) and Tony Allen (ankle) are considered questionable for Tuesday's game at Dallas.

Conley sprained his left (shooting) wrist during Monday night's win at Orlando. He fought through it until the game turned into a blowout in the third quarter, but clearly wasn't himself as he played just 22 minutes total and went 2-of-8 from the field with zero assists. The Grizzlies are on a back-to-back, so there's no shootaround to get updates from. We likely won't have official word on the status of Conley or Allen until roughly 7:30pm ET. If they can't go, Beno Udrih gets a big bump and Jeff Green gets a little one.
Jan 27 - 1:19 PM

Dwight Howard (ankle) will be a game-time decisions for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.

We'll update Howard's status as more news becomes available, but there's a good chance he sits out a second consecutive game after leaving Friday's game with a sprained ankle. If Howard sits, Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith, and Joey Dorsey would see the biggest boost in fantasy value.

Kevin Martin returned to shooting workouts on Monday and is hopeful that he'll be able to play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

This is the first time that Martin has been able to shoot since he had fluid drained from his surgicallyrepaired wrist nearly a week ago. "It feels better now than it did when I started practicing two weeks ago," said Martin, out since November. "Getting it drained helps a lot. I’ll give it one more hard day of practice and see how I feel." We'll update Martin's status after Wednesday's shootaround, but his eventual return will cut into the production of Mo Williams, Thaddeus Young, and Andrew Wiggins.

Langston Galloway has reportedly agreed to a deal that will keep him with the Knicks.

With Galloway's second 10-day contract set to expire on Tuesday, this move will keep the 23-year-old with the Knicks for at least this season. We don't currently have word if Galloway got the guaranteed contract he had been seeking for 2015-16, but he's worth owning in standard fantasy leagues as long as he continues to see big minutes for the Knicks.
Jan 27 - 12:04 PM

Luol Deng (sore calf) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

Deng missed Tuesday's shootaround with his sore calf and will be be re-evaluated closer to game time on Tuesday night. Danny Granger and James Ennis are likely to pick up most of Deng's minutes if he sits, but neither are worth a look outside of daily leagues.

Langston Galloway and the Knicks are having trouble agreeing on a contract and will continue negotiations on Tuesday.

Galloway's second 10-day contract ends on Tuesday and guaranteed money for next season is reportedly the issue in contract negotiations. Galloway will become a free agent if the two sides are unable to agree on terms and would surely hook on with another team after averaging 12.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.5 three-pointers in eight games with the Knicks. Whether it's with the Knicks or elsewhere, Galloway is worth owning in standard fantasy leagues as long as he's getting consistent minutes.

Blake Griffin scored 14 points on 6-of-17 shooting with nine rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and one block in Monday's win over the Nuggets.

Griffin hasn't fixed his rebounding issue but he has hit 54.7 percent from the field over the past month, lifting his value over that span into the top-20 range. It's unlikely that he shoots at that rate over the long run, and with no improvement to show rebounding the ball this would qualify as a mini sell-high moment. DeAndre Jordan went for seven points, 12 boards, three steals and four blocks in the win.
