According to an affidavit filed by police, Ty Lawson pushed his pregnant girlfriend twice during an argument Saturday.

The argument allegedly started when Lawson's six-month pregnant girlfriend, Ashley Pettiford, overheard him talking to another woman on the phone. Pettiford threatened to pack up and leave, at which point Lawson threw her clothes around the room. Each person then broke each other's cell phone. Lawson also allegedly pushed Pettiford away from the closet to keep her from packing. He's been charged with criminal mischief and harassment. Pettiford faces the same charges.

The league will not be suspending James Harden or Chris Paul for their participation in Monday's locker room incident with the Clippers.

Harden and Paul have been described as trying to calm the situation down, so they won't be catching any heat in this ordeal, while both Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green will be serving a two-game suspension. Harden is expected to make it back to the court on Thursday, and he'll be dealing with a 24-25 minute limit.

The NBA is suspending Trevor Ariza and Gerald Green two games for aggressively entering Clippers locker room.

He was reportedly the "most aggressive" of the team, so a suspension was likely to happen here. These two won't be playing on Thursday against the Wolves or Saturday against the Warriors in a primetime matchup. The Rockets did get Luc Mbah a Moute back, so he'll be an important piece in the rotation. Expect for P.J. Tucker to also see a slight bump in playing time, as well.

Andre Roberson (knee) will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Lakers, sending Terrance Ferguson back to the bench.

Roberson has missed the past eight games, so he could have his minutes monitored tonight. Neither Roberson nor Ferguson can be considered viable targets in most leagues.

Marc Gasol (illness) and Brandan Wright will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

Well, the Grizzlies are going to be short up front today, and chances are it'll be Deyonta Davis getting the start. Gasol was very sick this morning, so it's possible he won't be ready for Friday. For tonight, Davis makes some sense as a DFS punt play or as a stream in 14-team leagues. Expect to see more Jarell Martin, as well.
Jan 17 - 6:22 PM

Stan Van Gundy said he thinks Avery Bradley (groin) and Luke Kennard (thumb) will be able to play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Both players participated at shootaround, and it sounds like they'll be fighting through the pain tonight. We should get a firm update just prior to tip-off, but season-long owners can plan on having these guys active. Anthony Tolliver is no longer a very attractive streamer in most leagues.
Jan 17 - 6:21 PM

Fred VanVleet (knee) will not play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

The Raptors will play it safe in the middle of January here. With VanVleet out, the Raptors will likely ask Delon Wright to handle the ball more in the second unit while Norman Powell figures to get in the rotation again. Wright should be owned in standard leagues and is one of the hottest waiver-wire adds over the past few weeks.
Jan 17 - 6:17 PM

Markieff Morris (ankle) will start Wednesday vs. Charlotte.

Morris did not practice on Tuesday after rolling his ankle in Monday's loss to Milwaukee, but the ankle issue won't be anything that forces him to miss any game-time action. Joining Morris in the starting five will be John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter and Marcin Gortat.
Jan 17 - 6:11 PM

Jamal Murray (concussion protocol) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

The injury happened on Tuesday night and Murray was diagnosed with a facial contusion. He did return to the game in the fourth, but the team monitored him through the night and Wednesday morning. Murray does not have a timetable to return, but hopefully this is more of a day-to-day issue. With him out, that should mean Emmanuel Mudiay gets in the rotation again while Will Barton plays more PG. That should also open up minutes for Torrey Craig and Malik Beasley.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Believe it or not, with Millsap/Murray and non-active Nuggets off the floor, Emmanuel Mudiay actually leads the team in usage at 25.9% (0.85 FPPM). While the majority of that production came with the second-unit against back-ups, Mudiay does enter the DFS discussion but remains a low-floor/high-ceiling option. Will Barton is the safer target with a higher ceiling, as he figures to pick up ball-handling duties.

Skal Labissiere (shoulder) has been ruled out for Wednesday against the Jazz.

Just when it looked like Labissiere was going to get minutes on a regular basis, he has to sit out as the Kings turn to their youth. Coach Dave Joerger said he's expected to rest 2-3 veterans per game, but maybe this time Zach Randolph and Kosta Koufos suit up. On the other hand, the Kings could turn to Georgios Papagiannis or run more small-ball lineups, but either way Z-Bo and Koufos can't be trusted. Willie Cauley-Stein is really the only reliable Kings big these days.

Kyrie Irving has a sore left shoulder and did not practice on Wednesday.

He is also going to be questionable to play against the 76ers on Thursday. Irving played a season-high 41 minutes on Tuesday, and he's also in a bad slump to start 2018 at just 35.4 FG% in those five games. If he can't go, Terry Rozier and Shane Larkin figure to pick up the most playing time. Hopefully, he is only being held out of practice as a precaution.

The Spurs announced on Wednesday that Kawhi Leonard will be out for an indefinite period of time as he continues to rehab from right quadricep tendinopathy.

"It hasn't responded the way we wanted it to," said coach Gregg Popovich. "You try to react to how he feels after the games he's played in a little bit. It just hasn't gone as well as we've wanted it to. So we're going to stop him for an indefinite period – I don't know how long that will be – to get more strength and hopefully get him back on the court." This is very concerning given he's only appeared in nine games this season, and Pop's quote seems to imply there's a chance he might not be back this season. Owners in leagues that don't offer an IR-spot have a tough decision to make.
