James Harden (feet) told reporters he is questionable for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

It was previously thought that only Harden's left foot was giving him issues, so the revelation that his right foot is also a bother presents some worry. He played through the pain on Thursday to log 44 minutes, but said he'll "try to get a good warm up and see [about Saturday's game]." With Jared Dudley (knee tendinitis) banged up and Matt Barnes (bruised thigh) out, a healthy Harden could exploit the lack of wing defense for a monster night on Saturday against the Clippers. An unhealthy Harden is less of a guarantee.

David West (ankle) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

West has been targeting a Friday return, and all signs are pointing towards him giving it a go. His return will send Luis Scola to the bench, and West will give the Pacers some much-needed offense. Stay tuned for an official update on West's status as we draw closer to tip-off.

Joakim Noah (eye, left knee) will go through shootaround, and if he feels fine, he will play according to coach Tom Thibodeau.

Noah's return to the starting lineup would send rookie Cameron Bairston back to the bench. He was able to go through a full practice on Thursday, so things are looking positive towards him giving it a go. Stay tuned.

Derrick Rose (hamstring) will go through warm ups on Friday, and if there are no issues, he will be "good to go" according to Tom Thibodeau.

Rose is being listed as probable and has a favorable matchup vs. the Celtics, but owners will want to check back for an official update after shootaround. Stay tuned.
Nov 28 - 11:46 AM

Mo Williams (illness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

If Williams is unable to go, Zach LaVine would draw the start in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers, and would make for a decent option in daily leagues. Stay tuned.

Carmelo Anthony (back spasms) remains doubtful for Friday's game vs. OKC.

Carmelo showed up at the Knicks' shootaround to get treatment on his ailing back, but according to beat reporter Al Iannazzone, he is looking much better health-wise. Owners will want to check back for an official update on Melo's status closer to tip-off, but it's looking like he'll be a no-go. If he sits out, J.R. Smith will be free to jack up as many shots as he sees fit. Stay tuned.

Steve Kerr praised Stephen Curry's play on the defensive end during a recent interview.

"I've seen really good defense," Kerr said of Curry. "That's the thing that's impressed me the most is Steph's commitment on that end. Offensively, I already knew what he could do just watching the highlights the last couple of years. I think he's become a really well-rounded All-Star. He was already an All-Star, but now I think he's an All-Star at both ends of the floor." The Dubs currently rank third in defensive efficiency vs. the point guard position, and Curry is hitting career-highs in points (24.2), 3-pointers (3.5), steals (2.1), and field goal percentage (49.8). He's currently the second-best player in fantasy hoops, and has joined the conversation as a potential MVP-candidate.

DeMarcus Cousins (leg) did not appear on the Kings' injury report for Friday's game against the Spurs.

The Kings have thrown players with very minor injuries on the injury report as "probable" and it looks like Cousins dodged a bullet here. He suffered what could have been a contusion on Wednesday, but he did play through it and there look to be no negative effects since. He's arguably the best fantasy big man this side of Anthony Davis.

Rudy Gay (Achilles) and Darren Collison (quad) are questionable to face the Spurs on Friday.

We should get more information at shootaround tomorrow, but there was optimism on both guys. Achilles tendinitis tends to linger and hopefully Gay sitting out was more of a precaution than anything else -- he had this problem last year, too. If he is out, Omri Casspi will be an option in some leagues, but a date with Kawhi Leonard probably makes him less attractive in daily.
Nov 27 - 9:12 PM

Joakim Noah (eye, left knee) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

Noah was able to go through a full practice on Thursday without any setbacks, and the Bulls listing him as probable is an encouraging sign. Still, owners will want to check back for an official update closer to Friday's tip. If Noah is a go, Cameron Bairstow who was a surprise start on Tuesday would head back to the bench.
Nov 27 - 7:05 PM

Derrick Rose (hamstring tightness) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. Boston.

Rose has said that he was targeting Friday, so things are looking positive towards him giving it a go. If Rose does indeed play, Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks won't be worth using in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
Nov 27 - 7:00 PM

Taj Gibson (ankle) will not play Friday vs. the Celtics.

With Gibson out, Nikola Mirotic could see some extended minutes off the bench. However, Mirotic was only able to muster 20.8 minutes of action during his last outing with both Gibson and Joakim Noah (eye, left knee) sidelined, so there's no certainty that he will see major minutes.
