Joakim Noah (mild groin strain) won't play on Saturday and is not expected to play on Monday.

Noah hasn't practiced since injuring himself on Monday, though he's maintained his conditioning and would be probable to play if it were the regular season. "It's unfortunate," Noah said. "I want to be out there real bad, but we're going to be smart and I will be ready when it counts. It's a groin. I don't want it to keep lingering, so I'm doing what I can and I'll be back in no time."

Dwight Howard is expected to be out for at least one month due to his ailing knee.

This is a devastating blow for Howard and his owners as there is no telling when we will see him back in action. Owners who are fighting to get into playoffs may be forced to cut ties with the star center, as the Rockets likely won't bring him back until his knee is 100 percent healthy. We will update Howard's status when we know more, but we would expect Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith and Terrence Jones to see a huge boost to their value following this news.

Monta Ellis carried the offense against the Magic during a 108-93 win on Saturday, scoring 25 points with two rebounds, 13 assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

The Mavericks are just better when he's running the offense. They were No. 1 in the NBA for offensive efficiency before Rajon Rondo (head) came to town, but they've lost that distinction lately. Ellis could put up some huge lines while Rondo is out, but he'll be a stud regardless.

John Wall (migraines) said that he wasn't sure about his status for Monday's game against Charlotte after playing 45 minutes in Saturday's overtime loss to the Raptors.

Wall is laboring right now, and he is said to be dealing with a sore Achilles, two bum ankles, migraine headaches, and now a cold. Wall was still able to produce on Saturday, scoring 28 points with 12 assists, eight boards, one steal and one 3-pointer, but there's a good chance that he will pick up some rest sooner rather than later. We will update his status when we learn more, but expect Andre Miller, Bradley Beal and Garrett Temple to benefit if Wall misses any time.

DeMarcus Cousins fouled out in 38 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday with 20 points, 19 rebounds, three assists, three steals and four turnovers.

He made 6-of-24 from the field and all eight from the line. Cousins' last two fouls were not very smart with a tug of Roy Hibbert's arm for his fifth and an offensive one for his sixth. He looked a little tired late and the Kings went to him throughout the game. The good news is that his ankle injury didn't seem to bother him. He's arguably the best starting center in fantasy.

Michael Carter-Williams left Saturday's game against the Hawks with an ankle issue but has since returned.

He simply had his ankle re-taped and it's not expected to be anything serious. However, the 76ers are known to be cautious with their players, so we will be sure to monitor his status closely in the coming days. If MCW is forced to miss any action, Larry Drew II would have to step up in a big way as the only other point guard on the roster.

Meyers Leonard will draw the start on Saturday against the Bucks with Chris Kaman moving to the bench.

Coach Terry Stotts is up to his old tricks once again, and there's no report of an injury for Kaman. Leonard has improved this season, but he's still not a good bet to see a lot of minutes. Owners in deeper leagues can use a wait-and-see approach here.
Jan 31 - 8:51 PM

James Harden is simply dealing with a bruised knee and will start the second half.

This is excellent news for Harden and it appears that he has dodged a bullet. We will let you know how his knee holds up after the game.
Jan 31 - 8:48 PM

Kevin Durant (toe) will start in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies.

After two straight games on the sidelines, Durant will return to action in a crucial game against a strong Memphis team. Durant's probably not going to be 100 percent, but he's still obviously a must-start option. Perry Jones will move to the bench with this news and is safe to cut in almost all leagues.
Jan 31 - 7:59 PM

Gorgui Dieng will come off the bench on Saturday against the Cavs.

First things first, do not even think about dropping Dieng. He's a wonderful per-minute player in fantasy leagues and he should see minutes in the mid-20s. He's still likely to put up mid-to-late round value.
Jan 31 - 7:53 PM

Mo Williams (hip) and Zach LaVine (ankle) will not play against the Cavs on Saturday.

With Ricky Rubio (ankle) out for one more game, it'll be Lorenzo Brown in the starting lineup against Kyrie Irving. Williams shouldn't be out for too long and Rubio will play Monday, so there's no need to add Brown. He's worth a look in DFS, though.
Jan 31 - 7:34 PM

Rajon Rondo (head) will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Magic.

He was struck in the head by teammate Richard Jefferson's foot while trying to collect a loose ball and was ruled out for the rest of the game a few moments later. Rondo's nose was pouring blood right after it happened, and there's a good chance that he could have a concussion. Rondo isn't expected to be re-evaluated until he returns to Dallas, so we will provide an update as soon as we hear anything. Devin Harris figures to see an uptick in minutes with this news, while Monta Ellis will have even more responsibility.
