Latest Headlines

Marvin Williams ramped up his activity on Monday by playing three-on-three in practice.

He's recovering from Achilles surgery and while he won't be ready for the start of the season, he doesn't expect to miss too much time. He'll be a role player for the Jazz and the days of owning him in fantasy leagues appear to be over.

Vince Carter (foot) will not return to Thursday's game and will have an MRI.

It's only being called a "left foot injury" right now. Carter was able to walk around and put weight on his foot in the locker room, so hopefully that's a sign that he's not dealing with a major issue. There are some reports that there could be a sprain of his foot.

Tobias Harris left Thursday's game in the fourth quarter due to an apparent right ankle injury.

He rolled his right ankle against the Lakers on Jan. 9 and he played through it, but it cost him five games due to swelling. Harris hasn't been quite right either and he was limping on occasion multiple times in the second half tonight. If he's out, Aaron Gordon and Channing Frye would benefit. He finished with seven points, five rebounds and one assist.

DeMarcus Cousins (left ankle) is questionable to play against the Cavs on Friday.

This is interesting because Cousins missed time because of a right ankle sprain earlier this month. He did tweak his left ankle on Wednesday and did play through it, but it's possible he sits this one out. Although, one would think Boogie would want to suit up after being snubbed from the All-Stat team.

Lavoy Allen is dealing with sore right knee and will not return to Thursday's game against the Knicks.

He hobbled back to the locker room under his own power with only a slight limp. This injury doesn't sound serious, but the timing is interesting because he leapfrogged Luis Scola for the No. 2 power forward spot tonight. He left the game with eight points, five boards and one assist in nine minutes.

Dwight Howard (knee, ankle) will get a second opinion on his right knee and could miss "extended time," according to Yahoo! Sports.

It sounds like he won't be back until after the break and there's no specifics known about his injury besides some fluid buildup. Howard needed a couple weeks to get over a knee injury at the end of 2014 and it does seem a little more serious this time around. While Dwight is out, Terrence Jones will have a great opportunity in front of him while Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith will step up, too.
Jan 29 - 7:45 PM

Mike Conley (wrist) will not play against the Nuggets on Thursday night.

This will be his second game out of the lineup due to his wrist injury. The 2015 part of the season has not been nice to Conley with two ankle sprains and this current issue costing him time. There's no indication that this issue will linger on, so he can be considered as a buy-low candidate. Beno Udrih is a nice option in DFS tonight.
Jan 29 - 7:28 PM

Mike Conley (wrist) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

Conley dressed for Tuesday's game against Dallas, but he did not leave the bench, and it's looking like we're not going to get an official update on Conley's status until just before the tip. If he does indeed spend another game on the sidelines, Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes would split minutes at point guard. Stay tuned.
Jan 29 - 6:49 PM

JaVale McGee will again be available to play Thursday vs. Memphis.

McGee was available for the Nuggets' last game, but spent the entire game glued to the bench. He does however have a chance to step into the rotation tonight with the Nuggets looking for some size to go up against Memphis' imposing frontcourt of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. However, he's unlikely to do enough statistically to be worth using in most leagues.
Jan 29 - 6:42 PM

John Henson will replace Zaza Pachulia (calf) in the starting lineup for Thursday's game vs. Orlando.

Henson offers a lot of upside, and with a favorable matchup against the Magic, he's looking like a fine plug-and-play in daily leagues. It's going to be hard for head coach Jason Kidd to limit Henson's minutes tonight with Ersan Ilyasova, and Zaza unavailable. Kenyon Martin could also pick up some extended minutes tonight as one of the few healthy big men left on the roster, although he's unlikely to contribute much to the stat sheet.
Jan 29 - 6:03 PM

Jared Dudley will start at power forward for Thursday's game against Orlando with Ersan Ilyasova (groin) unavailable.

Dudley is more of a 3-point specialist, but he could see an uptick in value with the move to the starting lineup and a favorable matchup against the Magic. He's worth a dice roll for those playing daily leagues.
Jan 29 - 5:54 PM

Zaza Pachulia (calf) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Magic, and John Henson will take his place in the starting lineup.

Pachulia said that he felt a "pop" while going through shootaround and he had to quit. He said he thinks he'll be sidelined for a week at the most, so owners can start looking at other options for Saturday's game vs. Portland, and Monday's game vs. Toronto. Henson will draw a favorable matchup against the Magic, and he looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
