Nicolas Batum (shoulder, wrist) said he plans on joining the French National Team in July.

Batum's injuries were bad enough that he sat out the final eight games of the season. However, it looks like he'll avoid surgery and should enter next year at 100 percent. Batum and Kevin Durant were the only players to average at least one block, one steal and one 3-pointer this season. He's a second-round fantasy pick at worst in 2013-14.

Jimmy Butler (knee) was helped to the locker room in the third quarter on Friday.

He was battling in the paint and Nene fell into his left knee, and then about a second later his left knee looked to give out on a shot attempt without taking any contact. He needed help off the floor and was put on a cart, so this does not look good at all. The Wolves may have to lean on Nemanja Bjelica, Jamal Crawford, Andrew Wiggins and maybe even Marcus Georges-Hunt to help out.

Daniel Theis scored a career-high 19 points against the Pistons on Friday, adding seven rebounds, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

He was awesome the first half, so coach Brad Stevens rolled the Theis out there to start the third because Aron Baynes got hurt. It's unknown if Aron Baynes' elbow injury is bad, but the team did originally say he was available to return before later ruling him out. He's not really an add unless we get more news on Baynes, and for now it sounds like Baynes' injury is more of a day-to-day issue.

Ricky Rubio (hip) will start on Friday night against the Blazers.

The Jazz didn't miss him too much while he was out and they continue to be the hottest team in the NBA. Rubio is going to have a minutes limit tonight, but he should be back in all fantasy lineups. We should see Royce O'Neale, Jae Crowder and some other bench guys take a hit here.

Aron Baynes (left elbow) will not return against the Pistons on Friday.

The team originally called him available to return from his left elbow injury, but apparently the injury was worse than originally thought. Daniel Theis has been tearing it up in the first half, so coach Brad Stevens may just go with him even more after halftime. He's not really a strong pickup unless he was already on your radar before today.

Danny Green (illness) will not play against the Nuggets on Friday.

He reportedly had bad spaghetti to cause food poisoning, so this makes it the second noteworthy food issue for the Spurs -- Kawhi Leonard was sick from a Philly cheesesteak years ago. With him out, it'll be a team effort from the guards with Bryn Forbes, Patty Mills, Derrick White and Manu Ginobili playing more.
Feb 23 - 8:07 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Wolves.

He had a knee contusion before the All-Star break and it's not clear if that is also bothering him. The Rockets are getting Trevor Ariza (hamstring) back tonight, but Gerald Green could keep some of his minutes with Gordon out.
Feb 23 - 7:49 PM

Pau Gasol is back in the starting lineup alongside LaMarcus Aldridge (knee) on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

This means Davis Bertans will head back to the bench. Gasol averages 25.2 minutes as a starter compared to 18.0 minutes as a reserve, so his fantasy owners will be hoping this move sticks.
Feb 23 - 7:40 PM

Danilo Gallinari (hand) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

Not much of a surprise here with Gallinari suffering the hand injury on Thursday night. It's certainly possible he misses more games because he's not the fastest healer. With him out, it'll be Tyrone Wallace, Austin Rivers and Wes Johnson stepping up at the small forward spot. We could see some more Montrezl Harrell, too.
Feb 23 - 7:38 PM

Tyson Chandler (neck spasms) will not play on Friday vs. the Clippers.

Chandler is visiting a specialist but we haven't heard any results yet. Either way, we probably won't see much of him the rest of the season with the Suns embracing the tank. Expect to see a lot of Alex Len tonight and maybe some center minutes for Dragan Bender and Marquese Chriss.
Feb 23 - 7:18 PM

John Collins will start against the Pacers on Friday.

Giddy up. He is expected to join Dennis Schroder, Taurean Prince, Kent Bazemore and Dewayne Dedmon in the first unit. Collins should be looking for more minutes and he could get to 30 per game more often, assuming he stays out of foul trouble. Collins needs to be owned everywhere in fantasy.
Feb 23 - 6:37 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) is not at the arena yet and could miss Friday's game against the Wolves.

It sounds like he's not going to play, but of course that could change shortly. If he's out, Gerald Green, P.J. Tucker and Luc Mbah a Moute could help out with Trevor Ariza also back in the lineup.
