Kirk Hinrich (calf) has been working out since the Bulls ended their season.

Hinrich's calf won't need surgery, and it sounds as if he's finally recovered from the nasty calf injury that hampered him during the playoffs. He's anything but a sure thing to hold up next season after dealing with a laundry list of injuries during the 2012/13 season.

Paul Millsap (hip) scored 21 points on 8-of-12 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs during Wednesday's 103-95 win vs. the Heat, adding nine boards, two assists, four steals and three blocks in 32 minutes.

Millsap admitted before the game that his hip still hurts, saying that he's "just playing through and seeing what happens. Hopefully, getting better." That's not entirely encouraging for fantasy owners, but tonight's vintage-Sapper production was a terrific indication that he's feeling better. There's no reason to think he's in imminent danger of missing games.

Tim Hardaway Jr. filled in as a starter on Wednesday but he exited in the second half after he "banged" his knee, according to coach Mike Budenholzer.

Hardaway didn't return after limping into the locker room in the second half, finishing with seven points and two assists in 22 minutes. Kent Bazemore (knee) will miss at least one more game, giving Hardaway a temporary window for increased production, but that won't matter unless he's healthy. We should have an update after Thursday's shootaround.

Tyler Johnson gave Miami a huge lift with 27 points (8-of-16 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), five assists, four 3-pointers, two rebounds, one steal and one block on Wednesday.

Johnson played 35 minute without a single turnover, helping Miami cut into a daunting deficit, but his efforts weren't enough to earn a road win in Atlanta. He continues to see extra opportunities with Josh Richardson (ankle) and Dion Waiters (groin) on the sidelines. Both guys are loosely targeting a return in mid-December, so feel free to keep TJ locked into active lineups.

Andre Drummond racked up 26 points, 20 rebounds and two blocks during the Pistons' road loss in Charlotte on Wednesday, making 11-of-14 FGs and 4-of-7 FTs.

Drummond has been a borderline first-round fantasy player with FT percentage excluded this season, thanks to averages of 14.1 points on 52.1 percent shooting, 13.0 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks. Stan Van Gundy has pushed him to defend the rim with a purpose and he's responded to the challenge -- over their past five games, Detroit has allowed a league-low 33.2 points in the paint. With tonight's huge game, Drummond now has a league-best 11 games with 20+ points and 20+ rebounds since the 2012-13 season.

Rodney Hood (hamstring) and George Hill (toe) will not play against the Warriors on Thursday night.

Hood aggravated his hamstring strain on Tuesday and did not return. He missed last Thursday due to the strain and played 29.5 minutes per game on Dec. 3 and Dec. 5 before his aggravation. With Hood out, Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles will get some extra minutes against the Warriors. Both are going to be DFS options with Johnson having the higher upside.
Dec 7 - 9:33 PM

Raymond Felton (personal) will miss Wednesday's game against the Warriors and is expected to miss additional time.

First and foremost, we hope everything is OK with Felton and his family. With Felton out of the lineup, the Clippers could bring Wes Johnson into the rotation or give a few more minutes to J.J. Redick, Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford. Felton was playing 17.0 minutes per game this season.
Dec 7 - 9:07 PM

Darrell Arthur started the third quarter over Kenneth Faried on Wednesday.

The Nets just dominated in the first half with 42 points in the paint. Faried played just four minutes in the first half and is now firmly in coach Mike Malone's doghouse. Arthur may get a little boost and is worth a look in deeper leagues.
Dec 7 - 8:55 PM

Ben McLemore will start next to Darren Collison, Rudy Gay, Kosta Koufos and DeMarcus Cousins against the Mavs on Wednesday.

McLemore was a DNP-CD in the last three games, so this is an interesting tweak for coach Dave Joerger. McLemore is nowhere near on the radar in most leagues, but maybe he can change that for deep leagues with a strong game tonight.
Dec 7 - 8:33 PM

Salah Mejri will start against the Kings on Wednesday night.

It'll be his third start of the season. Andrew Bogut (knee) is going to miss several games and at least 10 days, so Mejri is going to get some run. He played 29.5 minutes per game in his previous starts, so he may be on the radar as a short-term pickup in deeper leagues. Dwight Powell also benefits in a big way tonight.
Dec 7 - 8:28 PM

An MRI of Derrick Rose (back) revealed no structural damage.

He is listed as day-to-day and is expected to travel with the Knicks for their upcoming road trip. Rose said he's dealt with fatigue in his side and legs, so the Knicks may opt to just give him a few days off. If he is going to miss more time, Brandon Jennings would get most of the run with Ron Baker behind him.
Dec 7 - 8:15 PM

Jordan Clarkson and Marcelo Huertas will start against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Coach Luke Walton is adding some extra punch to his first unit and helping out the second unit with Brandon Ingram shifting to the bench. The Lakers are leading the NBA in bench scoring thanks to Clarkson and Lou Williams, who has been on fire. Clarkson did start the second half on Saturday and should see minutes in the mid 30s. His fantasy owners will be hoping for him to snap out of his slump.
