Sources within the Cavs organization have "seem cool" on Nerlens Noel.

This could be a smoke screen, so take it with a grain of salt. The Cavs organization has reportedly "dismissed" any kind of off-court concerns surrounding Noel, but as usual, the Cavs are playing their hand close to chest. We don't expect the team to divulge who is going in the top spot of the draft with a week to go. Otto Porter and Ben McLemore are candidates to be taken first overall if Noel does not go there.

Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will be out for at least one month.

Jan 31 - 6:22 PM

Kenneth Faried (illness) and Darrell Arthur (illness) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

That means there should be a lot of J.J. Hickson and the Nuggets will also use Wilson Chandler as a stretch four. That should also open up some minutes for Alonzo Gee and Danilo Gallinari, as well. Faried should be back for Tuesday against the 76ers.
Jan 31 - 6:01 PM

Victor Oladipo (Achilles) will not play against the Mavericks on Saturday.

There is no word on the severity of the issue, but it doesn't sound serious. Oladipo hasn't had any noteworthy Achilles issues in his NBA career and hopefully this is just a one-time thing. Evan Fournier will get the start and is worth a long look as a spot starter.
Jan 31 - 5:53 PM

Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) and Amir Johnson (foot) will play against the Wizards on Saturday.

Valanciunas was liming badly on Friday night, but it sounds like he's ready to go without a restriction. Johnson and JV back in the lineup hurt the chances of Patrick Patterson having a good game. Fantasy owners can use Valanciunas in a sub-par matchup.
Jan 31 - 5:47 PM

Chandler Parsons (illness) will not play against the Magic on Saturday.

He missed Friday and the Mavs gave minutes to Richard Jefferson, Charlie Villanueva and Al-Farouq Aminu. The Mavs were awesome with their second unit in the fourth quarter, so maybe coach Rick Carlisle gives more minutes to Villanueva and Aminu. All that said, there is a lot of risk in playing any of these three guys.
Jan 31 - 5:37 PM

John Wall (migraines, ankle, Achilles) will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

The Wizards had Garrett Temple with the first unit at shootaround, but Wall is going to suit up for this big game. The Raptors have been awful at defending point guards with Jarrett Jack's 35-point game coming on Friday, so Wall could be in for a productive night. His fantasy owners should have him locked and loaded.
Jan 31 - 5:18 PM

Coach Brad Stevens confirmed on Saturday that Kelly Olynyk (ankle) likely won't play until after the All-Star break.

Olynyk is currently in a walking boot and recently said that he is still dealing with swelling in his ankle, so it's not out of the question that he ends up sitting out longer. Olynyk is only worth stashing in deeper leagues, as his role is too inconsistent to rely upon. In the meantime, expect Jared Sullinger, Brandon Bass and Tyler Zeller to all benefit in the short-term.
Jan 31 - 2:03 PM

DeMarre Caroll (Achilles) and Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will not play vs. the 76ers on Saturday.

Kent Bazemore will play all the minutes he can handle on Saturday, and is worth a long look in deeper leagues. Carroll should still be held onto in most leagues, and the Hawks probably just didn't want to risk him against the lowly 76ers. We will provide additional updates as needed.
Jan 31 - 1:51 PM

Amare Stoudemire (ankle) isn't expected to play against the Lakers on Sunday according to coach Derek Fisher, but he does have shot to play on Tuesday.

His role will likely be limited for the rest of the season, and with the Knicks looking towards the future, there's no reason to hold onto Stoudemire outside of the deepest of leagues. Expect Lou Amundson and Jason Smith to soak up Stoudemire's minutes in the meantime.
Jan 31 - 1:41 PM

Carmelo Anthony said that he thinks he will play against the Lakers on Sunday.

He was able to play in a back-to-back set on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, but the Knicks likely won't risk him if he's not feeling up to it. We will leave Anthony off the injury report for now, but his owners will want to check back after shootaround Sunday morning for the latest updates. Expect Lance Thomas and Tim Hardaway Jr. to benefit the most if Melo sits.
Jan 31 - 1:40 PM

Kevin Durant was a partial participant at shootaround on Saturday morning, and he will be a game-time decision against Memphis.

He has been sidelined for the past two games due to his sprained toe, but a huge matchup against Memphis could prove too tempting for him not to play. Durant's owners will have to check back for official confirmation prior to tip-off, but he certainly belongs in all lineups is if he's activated. If Durant sits, expect Perry Jones to draw another start, but Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka are the true beneficiaries if that's the case.
