Steve Nash (back) is reportedly "seriously considering" retirement due to his ailing back.

This would be a sad end to the two-time MVP's career, but his soon-to-be 40-year-old body just doesn't seem to want to cooperate with his desire to play. While Nash may still give it one last go before hanging up his gym sneakers, he wasn't producing at a high level (or playing back-to-backs) even before his latest injury. If Nash does indeed retire, Steve Blake's already soaring fantasy value would be cemented.

D'Angelo Russell (knee) will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

Russell was originally scheduled to be re-evaluated on Monday, but a scheduling conflict delayed the process by one day. He's currently in the early stages of Week-2, and if all goes well with his checkup on Tuesday, he could advance to on-court work. As for Monday's game against Utah, Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams will likely be logging heavy minutes with Jose Calderon (hamstring), Russell and Nick Young (Achilles) all on the sidelines.

Paul George (ankle) and C.J. Miles (knee) will play Monday vs. the Warriors.

George returned from a three-game absence on Sunday and logged 34 minutes, while Miles got back from a six-game stint on the sidelines and was limited to 15 minutes. PG-13 will likely again be without a minutes limit tonight, while Miles should be able to get closer to the 20-minute mark.
Dec 5 - 4:15 PM

James Ennis (calf) has progressed to going through non-contact, on-court work, and he will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.

That means Ennis will miss all of Memphis' games this upcoming week, which means Troy Williams and Troy Daniels will get all the run they can handle with Tony Allen flirting with close to 30 minutes. Ennis is not worth stashing in most leagues.

Dwyane Wade (rest) will return to action Monday vs. the Trail Blazers.

Wade was rested on the second game of a back-to-back set on Saturday, and he could again be rested on Tuesday, although the Bulls haven't yet made an official decision on that. With Rajon Rondo (suspension) out tonight, Wade will spend some more time running the offense in Chicago. Nikola Mirotic will likely be heading back to the bench tonight.
Dec 5 - 2:17 PM

Josh Richardson (ankle, wrist) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

He was a limited participant at Monday's practice, and said he still felt "a little bit" of discomfort on his sprained ankle, but owners can check back for another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround. With James Johnson (shoulder), Dion Waiters (groin) and Justise Winslow (wrist) out for Tuesday, Richardson is looking at minutes in the 30s if he's able to play.
Dec 5 - 1:40 PM

James Johnson (right rotator cuff strain) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

The Heat just can't catch a break. This is a new injury for Johnson and it's not clear how much time he will miss. Justise Winslow (wrist) and Dion Waiters (groin) remain out, while Luke Babbitt (hip) and Josh Richardson (ankle) are questionable. Expect to see a lot of three-guard lineups vs. the Knicks with Rodney McGruder and Wayne Ellington picking up some minutes at the three.
Dec 5 - 1:32 PM

Justise Winslow (wrist) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

He didn't practice on Monday and the Heat won't let him play until he returns to full practice. The good news is that he's nearing a return and we may see him later in the week. With Dion Waiters (groin) out and James Johnson (shoulder) going down, Winslow will have to play heavy minutes right away when he returns.
Dec 5 - 1:30 PM

Jose Calderon (right hamstring strain) is expected to be sidelined for 2-4 weeks.

An MRI confirmed the diagnosis as the bad luck continues to pile up on the Lakers. Marcelo Huertas could end up moving into the starting lineup until D'Angelo Russell (knee) is able to return, as coach Luke Walton prefers to keep Lou Williams and Jordan Clarkson with the second unit. Brandon Ingram should also have the ball in his hands a bit more moving forward.
Dec 5 - 12:55 PM

Anthony Davis (right foot sprain) is probable for Monday's game vs. Memphis.

Davis denied reports that he had X-rays on his foot after Sunday's game, but this confirms that he did tweak something and that he may not be 100 percent Monday night. Season-long owners can pencil him into lineups, but he's a little more risky than usual in DFS. He has battled a variety of ailments this season including minor knocks to his right shoulder and knee, but he's only missed one game so far. He's also playing 37.5 minutes per game, so the Pelicans are asking for trouble.
Dec 5 - 12:34 PM

Jerian Grant will start in place of the suspended Rajon Rondo on Monday vs. the Blazers.

Rondo will be back for Tuesday's game vs. Detroit, so Grant is just a low-end streaming option for Monday and a cheap punt play in DFS. In two previous starts this season, Grant averaged 12.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 3.5 steals and 1.0 triple in 30.0 minutes.
Dec 5 - 12:20 PM

Trevor Ariza (back spasms) is questionable for Monday's game vs. Boston.

He said on Sunday that he was feeling better, but he sat out of practice and wouldn't commit to playing. If Ariza is held out, Sam Dekker has been playing really well and should get a nice boost -- he's played 26 or more minutes in three straight games, scoring in double digits in each.
