Lakers officials are reportedly "bracing for the worst" as they await free agent Dwight Howard's decision.

Per USA Today, the Mavs' and Hawks' candidacy has "likely come to an end." And at this moment, the Lakers appear to be behind the Rockets and Warriors in the chase to land Howard. ESPN says multiple teams in Dwighstakes "fear Houston is winning the race." The fact that the Lakers are even exploring a possible sign-and-trade speaks volumes. Meanwhile, Howard is in Aspen, Colo. debating his options. A Friday afternoon report that said the notorious drama queen would announce his decision via Twitter this weekend has since be recanted. Frankly, we have no idea when Howard will make his decision and where he will sign.

Tobias Harris (calf), Evan Fournier (quad) and Kyle O'Quinn (ankle) will all be active for Wednesday's home game vs. the Warriors.

Harris sat out Monday's game and missed part of Orlando's shootaround on Wednesday, but must have felt better when going through pre-game warmups. He'll start at SF and has been terrific when healthy this season, so fantasy owners should roll the dice on him in what should be an up-tempo game vs. Golden State.

Carlos Boozer (shoulder) will start against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Well, the Ed Davis Revenge Game will have to be from a bench role. Boozer missed Sunday against the Nuggets and it sounds like he should see his normal minutes. He's still not going to be a great play tonight against a terrific interior defense. Jordan Hill also will not have to play 42 minutes, which matched a career high. On the other side of the matchup, Zach Randolph could have a big game against Boozer.

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison will not play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Gay did not play on Tuesday due to his lingering tendinitis and the Kings are hopeful he can return on Friday. He's been dealing with this issue since last season and it's something he may have to manage throughout the year. Omri Casspi scored 22 points and has been very effective at getting to the rim, so look to use him in deep leagues and in daily formats.

A bruised right ankle leaves Isaiah Thomas questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.

Uh oh. He suffered the injury on Monday and this should be a fast-paced game. If IT2 is out, both Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe should be in for a big night, while Gerald Green could see a boost in minutes, as well.

Amare Stoudemire has dealt with back spasms in the past and given the amount of pain Melo is currently in, paints a not-so-pleasant picture of what Melo might be dealing with.

"Back spasms is nothing easy to deal with,’’ Stoudemire said. "Your whole body shuts down, it affects your central nervous system. It affects your entire body. It takes time to get over that spasm. It takes a lot of rest and recovery and a lot of rehab to get over that particular injury.’’ Not good. Melo's owners should probably start making alternative plans for not only this week, but potentially the next month or so, if Stoudemire's assessment is accurate. Speaking of Stoudemire, his role should be greatly increased in Melo's absence, while J.R. Smith is expected to start tonight.

Thaddeus Young is expected to return to action on Wednesday, although his role still hasn't been confirmed.

The team will wear pink shoe laces to honor Young's mother, who passed away from breast cancer recently. We should have an update on whether he's starting or not, but you can get him back in your lineup after missing the previous six games.

Mo Williams missed shootaround Wednesday and is a game-time decision against the Bucks.

Williams has been sick for several days now and while it's possible he'll play tonight, it would not be surprising to see rookie Zach LaVine running the point for the Wolves tonight. On a side note, the Wolves will be wearing pink shoe laces as a tribute to Thaddeus Young's mother, who passed away from cancer recently.

Dwyane Wade, who has missed seven straight games with a hamstring injury, was taking part in "explosive drill practice" on Wednesday.

The Heat are off until Sunday at New York and if Wade is doing those kind of drills, you'd have to think he might be ready to go four days from now. He says he's "hoping" to play on Sunday, but there's no way to tell given Wade's injury history.
Nov 26 - 12:39 PM

Dwight Howard (knee) and Patrick Beverley (hamstring) have both been ruled out for the Rockets for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

Beverley didn't have a chance of playing in this one and Howard will now miss his fourth straight game with a knee injury that didn't seem too serious initially. DeMarcus Cousins should have his way with the Rockets tonight, while whoever starts at PG for the Kings (Darren Collison is iffy) won't have to deal with Beverley's pesky defense.
Nov 26 - 11:49 AM

Evan Fournier will be a game-time call on Wednesday due to a quad injury.

He finally cooled off on Monday and suffered the injury in that game. If he can't go, it should mean more goodies for Victor Oladipo, who played 36 minutes on Monday and had his best game of the season.
Nov 26 - 10:59 AM

J.R. Smith is expected to start at forward in place of Carmelo Anthony (back) on Wednesday, according to coach Derek Fisher.

We'll have to wait and see who makes up the starting unit tonight, but Smith gets a boost in value with Carmelo very unlikely to play again before Sunday, at the earliest.
