Celtics G Terrence Williams was arrested on Sunday after being accused of waving a handgun out of his car window at the mother of his 10-year-old son.

Williams' bail has been set at $25,000. He stepped into a sizable role for Boston during the playoffs this season, but his contract for 2013-14 is fully unguaranteed and this incident won't help his reputation around the league, which is already sullied enough that he spent the beginning of last season playing in China.

Jodie Meeks suffered a dislocated right thumb on Wednesday and will not return.

The good news is X-rays were negative, so he didn't break anything. Considering he dislocated his thumb, there is a good chance he will need an MRI to check on ligament damage. Meeks finished with five points, four rebounds, two steals and two turnovers in 16 minutes. Maybe, just maybe coach Frank Vogel will play Mario Hezonja, who is only worth a speculative add in very deep leagues for now. C.J. Watson should also get more minutes.

Ty Lawson (ankle) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday night.

He tried to test out his ankle, but apparently wasn't as healthy as expected. With Lawson out tonight. Garrett Temple should get some minutes as the backup point guard to go with some minutes at the two. Darren Collison is also coming off a 21-pont game and could have some success against his former team.
Jan 18 - 9:24 PM

Klay Thompson (personal) has arrived at Oracle Arena and he will play vs. the Thunder.

Thompson flew back from Portland and he made it to the arena with enough time to ensure that he'll be in the starting lineup. Get him into your active lineups.
Jan 18 - 9:12 PM

DeMarre Carroll (sore neck) will not return to Wednesday's game.

Carroll took a knee to the head while falling and the good news is that there's no mention of a concussion -- tests came back negative and it's being described as something similar to whiplash. Terrence Ross should gain the most if Carroll is forced to miss any games, with Norman Powell also stepping into a bigger role. The Raptors next game is Friday in Charlotte.

Anthony Davis (left thumb, left hand sprain, right hip) returned to action on Wednesday.

X-rays were negative on his left hand and he should be OK. Hopefully, he can stay healthy for the rest of the game tonight.

Dwight Howard is back in the starting lineup to face the Pistons on Wednesday and Tim Hardaway Jr. will move to the bench.

He should see his normal playing time, assuming he can avoid foul trouble against Andre Drummond. Even though Hardaway Jr. is coming off the bench, he's still a hold.

Ben Simmons (foot) "could make his much-anticipated NBA debut shortly after the All-Star break," according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

The report adds the No. 1 pick has a chance to make his NBA debut "near March," assuming he doesn't have a setback. He went through 5-on-5 for the first time last week and continues to do some work pre-game, including on the road. He'll likely have a minutes limit upon his return, so it may be a while before he's contributing reliable production. Simmons is a questionable stash in standard leagues, especially if you need to make up ground in the standings.

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

He returned to action on Monday, but the Celtics will hold him out. Presumably, this is more of a precaution than anything with the Celtics not on a back-to-back set. With him out, Marcus Smart figures to get the start while Terry Rozier, Gerald Green and Jaylen Brown could play more. Bradley was off to a fantastic start this season, but it may take him some time to get right with this nagging injury.

DeMar DeRozan is confirmed in the starting lineup against the 76ers on Wednesday.

The Raptors may want to get a win against their divisional foes. DeRozan gets a good matchup tonight, so keep him rolling in your season-long leagues.
Jan 18 - 7:01 PM

Kyle O'Quinn will move into the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, with Joakim Noah (ankle) unavailable.

O'Quinn is about as hit-or-miss as they come, but with Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles), Lance Thomas (orbital fracture) and Noah all on the sidelines Wednesday night, he's sure looking at a good amount of opportunity. He's someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or DFS punt play.
Jan 18 - 6:49 PM

DeMar DeRozan is listed as the starter for Wednesday against the 76ers.

The Raptors usually tweet out lineup changes on their officially Twitter account, but this isn't the source here. For now, DeRozan has a good chance to play on the second half of a back-to-back set. We'll see if there is another update on DeMar from the team before tip.
