George Hill (concussion) will be a game-time decision Saturday night against the Knicks.

Hill was going through the on-court exertion part of the league's concussion protocol Saturday afternoon. He'll have to pass all levels of the test before being cleared to return to game action. The Pacers clearly missed in Thursday's Game 5 loss to the Knicks and a return could help Indiana close out the series at home. If Hill isn't cleared, D.J. Augustin will start and be in line for major minutes.

Nick Young (ankle) will not play against the Wizards on Tuesday.

He sprained his ankle in practice on Monday and the Lakers will allow him to heal. Young made just 33.3 percent from the field over the last month and remains one of the worst players inside of the arc. He's not a must-own player and his efficiency has dropped without Kobe Bryant. With Swaggy out, the Lakers will use some two-point guard sets -- they used those for 11 minutes on Sunday -- and Wayne Ellington will also have some more run in a bad matchup. Jordan Clarkson might benefit the most.

Updating a previous report, Kevin Martin (wrist) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics.

Martin was able to resume shooting workouts on Monday after having fluid drained from his surgically-repaired wrist last week, but he will remain sidelined for Wednesday's game. He's likely going to be eased back into the rotation upon his return, so owners will need to remain patient. However, he still offers enough upside to be worth holding onto in most leagues.

Head coach Frank Vogel reiterated on Tuesday that George Hill's minutes will be capped at around 20 minutes per game for the foreseeable future.

"We don't want [Hill] to re-injure [his groin]," Vogel said. "It's not a challenge from my standpoint to keep him at that because once we started expanding [the minutes played] the last time we lost him for 11 games, and we're not interested in doing that again." A minutes limit can be viewed as a good thing for a guy who has been sidelined for much of the season, and he was able to score 17 points during his last outing despite the minutes restriction. He needs to be owned in all standard leagues.

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 said his wrist is feeling better, but he remains 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, but he's also a guy known to fight through injuries. However, if he's forced to sit, look for Wesley 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.
Jan 27 - 2:00 PM

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.
Jan 27 - 1:55 PM

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.
Jan 27 - 12:35 PM

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.
Jan 27 - 12:10 PM

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.
