Latest Headlines

Sources tell the Toronto Sun that the Raptors would have to include an asset in order to trade Andrea Bargnani.

In other words, the Raptors can't dump Bargnani on his own because other teams don't view him as an asset. The former No. 1 overall pick still has $22.5 million over two years remaining on his contract and is now regarded as little more than a strech-four that's a liability defensively. The Raptors are going to have to get creative -- and take pennies on the dollar -- if they're going to make a trade happen this summer.

Stanley Johnson (hip) did not go through shootaround and he remains questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Johnson skipping shootaround isn't a great sign regarding his status for tonight's game, and we should get official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off. If he's out, Reggie Bullock will continue to flirt with minutes in the mid-30s.

Avery Bradley (groin) and Luke Kennard (thumb) will try to play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Bradley and Kennard sat out Tuesday's practice, and it's concerning that this groin issue is flaring up again for Bradley after he missed seven games with the same issue in December. Both these guys appear to be headed for a game-time decision, and if they're out, Anthony Tolliver would likely slot back into the starting five and there would be more minutes available for Langston Galloway. Stay tuned.

Tyler Johnson (ankle) will not play Wednesday vs. the Bucks, as expected.

"He is feeling better. We did not get an MRI, it is just an ankle sprain at this point," said head coach Erik Spoelstra of Johnson. "We will continue to treat and evaluate him." It'll be interesting to see who Miami brings into the starting five with Johnson out, but Wayne Ellington figures to be the primary beneficiary here in terms of minutes. Johnson doesn't appear to be dealing with anything serious, but he could also miss Friday's game in Brooklyn with it being the first of a back-to-back set.
Jan 17 - 1:01 PM

Larry Nance (right hip pointer) is probable to play Wednesday vs. Oklahoma City.

Nance tweaked his hip on Monday but was able to play through it, and it sounds like that's what he'll be doing tonight. Check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off.
Jan 17 - 12:54 PM

Brandon Ingram (ankle) will return from a one-game absence on Wednesday vs. the Thunder.

Ingram practiced in full on Tuesday, and considering he only missed one game, he shouldn't be dealing with any sort of minutes limit tonight. His return to the court should shift Josh Hart back to the second unit, but with Lonzo Ball (knee) out, Hart's minutes might not take a significant hit. Ingram owners can feel free to get him active.

Lonzo Ball (left knee) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, as expected.

Ball was never expected to take the court tonight after sitting out Tuesday's practice, and with him watching from the sidelines, Tyler Ennis figures to earn another start with more minutes falling to Josh Hart and Jordan Clarkson. The Lakers take on the Pacers on Friday, and for now, we'll be considering Ball questionable for that one.
Jan 17 - 12:49 PM

Richaun Holmes (gastroenteritis) will not suit up for Thursday's game in Boston.

This will be Holmes second straight game on the sidelines due to the stomach bug, which will translate to more minutes for Trevor Booker and Amir Johnson. Holmes is only worth owning in deep leagues as a Joel Embiid-handcuff.
Jan 17 - 12:42 PM

Marc Gasol (illness) did not go through shootaround and is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

Gasol is likely going to be a game-time call tonight, but if he is forced to the sidelines, Brandan Wright would have an opportunity to start while Tyreke Evans' usage rate would likely go into the ridiculous range. Deyonta Davis would also have the opportunity for some extended minutes, and JaMychal Green would spend more time at the five than usual. Stay tuned.
Jan 17 - 12:36 PM

Jordan Bell will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, with Draymond Green (shoulder) unavailable.

Bell should see his minutes closer to the 25-minute mark tonight with Green watching from the sidelines, so he could be someone to think about streaming in deep leagues. As a starter this season, Bell owns averages of 7.7 points, 5.6 boards, 3.3 dimes, 1.1 steals and 1.8 swats per contest on 64.7% shooting.
Jan 17 - 12:15 PM

Draymond Green (right shoulder soreness) and Andre Iguodala (calf) will not suit up for Wednesday's game in Chicago.

Green said his shoulder feels fine, so we'd expect him to get back out there for Saturday's game in Houston. With both Green and Iguodala watching from the sidelines on Wednesday, Jordan Bell will draw the start and there will be more minutes available for guys like David West, Omri Casspi and Nick Young.
Jan 17 - 12:10 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (rest) will play Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies.

Head coach Jeff Hornacek indicated on Tuesday that THJ could be returning to the starting lineup for tonight's game, which would shift Lance Thomas back to the second unit. With Hardaway Jr. back on the court, Michael Beasley won't play as much and Courtney Lee's usage will take a hit. Go ahead and get him active.
