Joakim Noah said he's not concerned with missing time during the regular season.

"I need a little more time. I want to be out there. We're looking good. I've got to be healthy," Noah said. He's going to be at least a week and will essentially be off a basketball course for that time. If things don't go well for Noah in the evaluation in a week, it's certainly possible he misses time. The aggravation to this injury has limited him to just one preseason game, so we're shying away from drafting him in leagues.

Troy Daniels (illness) is questionable to play against the Warriors on Saturday night.

He played 32 minutes on Thursday night and didn't appear to be ill, so he may have woke up sick today. Daniels wasn't affect by Toney Douglas making an impact, but a possible Vince Carter (hip) return could take shots and minutes away from him. If he's out, Troy Williams, Douglas, Andrew Harrison and Tony Allen could get a few extra minutes.

Moe Harkless (ankle) is probable to play against the Pacers on Saturday.

He had some swelling in his ankle and looked hobbled during pre-game warmups on Thursday, so the extra day seems to have made a difference. His return would bump Evan Turner back to the bench while Allen Crabbe would take a hit and Jake Layman would be out of the rotation. Harkless is exceeding expectations, but he's a hold in standard leagues.

Al-Farouq Aminu (back contusion) is questionable to face the Pacers on Saturday.

He took a really bad fall in the last minute of Thursday's game. Aminu was grabbing his lower back for a while, so clearly the pain has lingered. If he's out, Ed Davis should get minutes in the mid 20s while Meyers Leonard could also benefit. Aminu has potential, but his awful offensive season has kept him from being an asset in most leagues.

Blake Griffin (sore right knee) will be a game-time decision to face the Pelicans on Saturday.

If there is good news, this isn't the same leg that gave him problems last year. On the other hand, Griffin had a swelling issue with his right knee late last month. That Saturday game is the only game for the Clippers between Wednesday and Monday, so it makes sense to just rest him. If he is out, Paul Pierce, Mo Speights, Brandon Bass and the wings would get a few extra minutes. DeAndre Jordan also exploded for a 21-23 line in the last game Blake missed.

Derrick Rose (sore lower back) will not play Friday vs. the Kings.

This will be the second game Rose has missed due to the back injury he suffered Monday. The good news is that Rose is traveling with the Knicks on their current road trip, which would seemingly indicate he is close to returning to action. Brandon Jennings will get the start at point guard. He makes for a solid DFS play Friday in Sacramento. Jennings had 16 points, four rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes in a starting role on Wednesday. He'll likely play more minutes on Friday, assuming the game isn't a blowout, as NY has very little depth behind Jennings at point guard.
Dec 9 - 1:42 PM

Paul Millsap (hip) will play Friday vs. the Bucks.

Millsap has played in two straight games and looked good doing so, averaging 22.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.5 steals and 1.5 blocks. Millsap admitted earlier this week that he is currently playing through pain, but should obviously still be locked into starting lineups.
Dec 9 - 1:04 PM

Derrick Rose (sore lower back) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

Rose tweaked his back in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's game in Orlando. He sat out Wednesday's contest vs. the Cavs. Rose is traveling with the team, so it's a good sign that he is close to returning to the lineup. The team may until they see how his back responds to pre-game warmups. Check back for an update. If Rose does not play, Brandon Jennings will start and would be an intriguing DFS option on Friday.

Rodney McGruder (ankle) is expected to play Friday vs. the Cavs.

McGruder twisted his ankle on Wednesday and was listed as questionable for Friday. However, McGruder vowed he would be ready for Friday. The Heat need him, as they are down to just nine healthy bodies. He has played a ton of minutes since being inserted into the starting lineup once the injuries hit the Heat. Over Miami's last eight games, McGruder is averaging 8.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 triples in 33.7 minutes per game
Dec 9 - 11:56 AM

Josh Richardson (ankle) will not play Friday vs. the Cavs, but "might" play Saturday in Chicago.

Richardson re-joined the team on Friday in the middle of their road trip, so there was some hope he would suit up in Cleveland. However, Coach Spo told reporters that Richardson won't return to the lineup for Friday's contest. Nonetheless, the fact that Richardson flew out to join the team is obviously a positive sign. Per the team, he will be re-evaluated in hopes that he can play some minutes on Saturday
Dec 9 - 11:49 AM

Channing Frye has been excused from the team for personal reasons and will miss Friday's game vs. the Heat and Saturday's game vs. the Hornets.

Frye has had to endure an extremely difficult couple of months, as he lost both his mother and father. Kevin Love (back spasms) was surprisingly listed as listed as questionable for Friday night. If Love can't play, the Cavs will be extremely shorthanded at power forward. As a result, Tristan Thompson would likely play more minutes than usual. Richard Jefferson, Mike Dunleavy and possibly Chris Anderson could all see extended action as well.
Dec 9 - 11:09 AM

J.R. Smith (knee) is questionable for Friday's game vs. Miami.

Smith missed Wednesday's matchup with the Knicks after hyperextending his left knee on Monday. DeAndre Liggins made his first career start in place of Smith vs. the Knicks and played 20 minutes. Iman Shumpert came off the bench and played 24 minutes. It is safe to assume a similar distribution of minutes on Friday if Smith doesn't suit up.
