Latest Headlines

Kobe Bryant (Achilles) has progressed to running without a treadmill and even started sprinting around the arena on Sunday.

A decision on Kobe's status for the opener will likely go down to the wire, and there are very real questions about his future durability and how effective he will be to start the year, but we are all essentially betting against Kobe Bryant at our own risk.

Luol Deng (calf) said that he expects to play Tuesday vs. Detroit.

Deng said that he's felt good enough to go for the past three games, but the trainers have told him no. It sounds like he'll play Tuesday, and his return to the lineup will send Danny Granger back to the bench. He'll have some more opportunity on offense with Dwyane Wade (hamstring) sidelined, so make sure you have him active on Tuesday with a favorable matchup against the Pistons.

Hassan Whiteside finished Sunday's win over the Celtics with 20 points (10-of-17 shooting), nine rebounds, and three blocks over 29.8 minutes of action.

Whiteside had another impressive showing today, knocking down mid-range jumpers, while pulling out a variety of low-post moves, and he looks to be the waiver wire pickup of the year. With the way he's been playing, it's insane with how many teams past on him, and congratulations are in order if you beat your league to the wire to land Hassanity.

Jordan Hill left Sunday's game against the Knicks with a right quad strain and he will not return.

Hill will finish Sunday's game with just two points (1-of-3 shooting) and five rebounds, and he will be re-evaluated on Monday. We'll be sure to pass along updates as they become available, but Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis, and Ryan Kelly will all have some increased opportunity for as long as Hill is out.
Feb 1 - 2:41 PM

Anthony Davis (groin) is being listed as probable for Monday's game against Atlanta.

Davis' groin strain was never thought to be serious, and if he does indeed play on Monday, the injury will have only sidelined him for one game. His return to action will send Ryan Anderson to the bench, and Alexis Ajinca will go back to being a negligible option in most leagues. Stay tuned.
Feb 1 - 2:33 PM

Rajon Rondo (face) has already been ruled out for Monday's game against Minnesota.

The team's doctors are still evaluating Rondo, so we should have more details soon. Devin Harris will likely draw the start following this news and would be worth a look in deeper leagues, while Monta Ellis will have to carry even more responsibility on offense for the Mavericks.
Feb 1 - 12:54 PM

Joe Johnson missed practice on Sunday for personal reasons.

There's no word about a possible injury, but we should have more details on his absence shortly. There's nothing to suggest that Johnson wouldn't be available to play against the Clippers on Monday, but his owners will have to keep their head on a swivel for an update. Alan Anderson and Bojan Bogdanovic figure to benefit the most if Johnson misses any action.
Feb 1 - 12:44 PM

Deron Williams (ribs) practiced in full for the first time since his injury on Sunday and is officially listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

D-Will is likely going to be eased into action upon his return, but Jarrett Jack will likely remain in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future. However, D-Will is more than capable of putting up good numbers when he's active, so make sure he's not floating around the waiver wire in your league. We should know more about Williams' status following Monday's shootaround so stay tuned.
Feb 1 - 12:43 PM

Nick Young (ankle) will be active on Sunday against the Knicks, but coach Byron Scott said that he wouldn't play.

Coach Scott said that he wanted Young to go through a practice before he returns to action, so there's no cause for concern here. Consider Young day-to-day for now, while Wayne Ellington will continue to see increased production in Young's absence.
Feb 1 - 12:36 PM

Carmelo Anthony will play vs. the Lakers on Sunday as expected.

He wasn't listed on the injury report, but his owners will have to verify his status prior to every game due to all the concerns over his knee. Anthony will be a stud almost every time he's active, so feel free to pencil him into all lineups.
Feb 1 - 12:31 PM

Amare Stoudemire (ankle) will not play on Sunday against the Lakers.

There's a chance that he could return against the Celtics on Tuesday, but his role will be too limited to rely upon outside of deeper leagues. Lou Amundson and Jason Smith will continue to fill the void for the Knicks.
Feb 1 - 12:20 PM

Ricky Rubio (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Mavericks.

He has missed the last 43 games due to his ankle, so if he does return his owners should expect some rust. Even though Rubio will be on a minutes limit until after the All-Star break, he shouldn't be floating around any waiver wires. Mo Williams (hip) and Zach LaVine (ankle) are also questionable for Monday, meaning Lorenzo Brown could remain in the rotation. Check back after shootaround on Monday for the latest updates.
