New GM Masai Ujiri called Jonas Valanciunas a "huge piece" of the franchise.

Ujiri faint praise of Andrea Bargnani sounded forced, but he gushed about Valanciunas. "Huge piece. Huge. Fantastic young talent. ... The progress Jonas has made, the passion he shows and the hard work he puts into it, I feel he has a bright future," Ujiri said. In 27 games after the All-Star break, Valanciunas averaged 11.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks while shooting 58.8 percent from the field and 82.9 percent from the line. Entering his second NBA season at age 21, Jonas is a core building block of both the Raptors and Dynasty rosters.

Mo Williams (personal) will not play on Wednesday against the Celtics, but will join up with the team on Thursday.

He has also been battling a hip injury, so Williams probably wouldn't have been able to play anyways. With Ricky Rubio (ankle) still sidelined, rookie Zach LaVine will likely step into the starting lineup while newly acquired Lorenzo Brown could see some action as well. However, neither LaVine or Brown are reliable enough to use outside of deeper leagues, so feel free to leave them on the wire.

The Spurs have officially signed Reggie Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

Williams will provide the Spurs with another 3-point threat in the absence of Marco Belinelli (groin), but his role likely won't be large enough to warrant attention in most leagues. You can safely leave Williams on the wire for now.

Minnesota has signed guard Lorenzo Brown to a 10-day contract on Wednesday, and he is expected to be available to play against the Celtics.

The uncertainty surrounding Ricky Rubio's (ankle) return and the latest injury to Mo Williams (hip) may have forced their hand, so Brown may end up seeing some action right out of the gate. There's no need to consider an add outside of ridiculously deep leagues just yet, but we will let you know if he pops up on the fantasy radar.

Ricky Rubio (ankle) is listed as out for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics as expected.

There is simply no telling when we will see Rubio back in action, and all his owners can do is simply wait until we get a positive report. Mo Williams is questionable on Wednesday with a hip injury, meaning rookie Zach LaVine could see big minutes against the Celtics. Stay tuned.

The Utah Jazz have signed Chris Johnson to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

The Jazz decided against signing Elliot Williams to a new deal, meaning johnson will now have a chance to stake his claim for a spot in Utah's rotation. While Johnson will be available to play on Wednesday, owners in deeper leagues would be advised to use a wait-and-see approach here.
Jan 28 - 12:21 PM

Kevin Durant (toe) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

It will be his second straight game on the sidelines, and though the injury isn't serious, this has to be frustrating for his owners. Durant is still listed as day-to-day, so we will update his status as soon as more details become available. Perry Jones will likely draw another start, but he is too unreliable to use in most leagues. Instead, expect Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka to carry the load for the Thunder tonight, and be sure to give them a long look in daily leagues.

Terrence Jones participated in shootaround, and he will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Rockets coach Kevin McHale is a huge fan of Jones' game, but after missing nearly three months of action he will likely be eased into action upon his return. Jones is more than worth a flier in deeper leagues, but it will be interesting to see how coach McHale tweaks his crowded frontcourt rotation that includes Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith and Dwight Howard (ankle).
Jan 28 - 12:06 PM

The Nets released a statement on Wednesday saying that Mirza Teletovic (lungs) will make a full recovery.

He obviously won't play again this season, but this is fantastic news and hopefully this means we will see him back out on the court soon. Teletovic is flying home to New York on Wednesday, and we will continue to track his progress every step of the way. Expect Cory Jefferson, Bojan Bogdanovic and Brook Lopez to see some extra minutes for the foreseeable future.

Jrue Holiday (leg) said that he has no specific timetable for his return, and he remains out indefinitely.

After he missed half of last season with a similar injury, the Pelicans will likely proceed with extreme caution. Holiday should still be stashed in all leagues in the hope that he can return soon, but this report is a little troubling. In the meantime, Tyreke Evans will continue to run the point for New Orleans, while Eric Gordon will handle the ball more as well.
Jan 28 - 11:50 AM

Tyreke Evans (illness) is considered probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He has take over the starting point guard role in the absence of Jrue Holday (leg), so the Pelicans would be in serious trouble If Evans missed this game. Even though Evans will likely end up playing, owners should check back before tip-off just to be safe. Should he miss any time, Nate Wolters and Jimmer Fredette would see an uptick in minutes at point guard, but still wouldn't be ideal options outside of deeper leagues.
Jan 28 - 11:26 AM

The Bucks have signed Jorge Gutierrez to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

He actually played for coach Jason Kidd when he was in Brooklyn, so the move does make some sense. However, Gutierrez likely won't be a big part of the rotation, so owners in most leagues can safely leave him on the wire for now. Also, the Bucks did not have to waive another player in order for this deal to work, as Larry Sander's suspension gave them the ability to add another player. If/when Sanders returns, the Bucks will then have to cut ties with somebody.
