Dirk Nowitzki missed the morning shootaround with an illness and is uncertain for Saturday's game against the Bucks.

No word on the nature of the illness, but it also kept coach Rick Carlisle from attending the morning shootaround. Check back for more information closer to tip-off.

Andre Iguodala (calf) will play Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

He should be out there for his standard bench role in the mid-20s, but with averages of just 5.7 points, 3.8 boards, 3.4 dimes and not much else on 42.2% shooting, he can't be considered a viable target in most settings.

Kyle O'Quinn (left calf) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

The calf issue has been bothering O'Quinn since Christmas, so he could miss Thursday's game against the Nuggets as well. Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is also unavailable for Tuesday's game, so Enes Kanter could be flirting with minutes in the 30s, while Michael Beasley and Tim Hardaway Jr. will see an uptick in usage.

Kristaps Porzingis (knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

Porzingis tweaked his knee at Monday's practice, and with the next game for New York being the first of a back-to-back set, it wouldn't be surprising to see him sit out Thursday's game in Denver as well. Kyle O'Quinn (calf) will be joining Porzingis on the sidelines tonight, leaving the Knicks very thin upfront. Lance Thomas could move back into the starting five tonight, but the most attractive DFS targets will be Michael Beasley, Enes Kanter and Tim Hardaway Jr.

As expected, Lonzo Ball (knee) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. Boston.

This will be Ball's fifth straight game on the sidelines, and considering he's still not been able to practice, we're going to have to consider him doubtful for Friday's game in Chicago. With Ball unavailable, Tyler Ennis will have another opportunity to start with Jordan Clarkson and Alex Caruso logging extended minutes with the second unit. Clarkson is the most attractive fantasy option out of this group.
Jan 23 - 2:00 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

Caldwell-Pope has missed each of the Lakers last two games, but has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday after initially being listed as questionable on the injury report. Lonzo Ball (knee) has been ruled out and Brandon Ingram is listed as probable. Assuming KCP plays, Josh Hart will likely get bumped back to the bench and Corey Brewer will also see fewer minutes.
Jan 23 - 1:59 PM

Myles Turner (elbow) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice and will be listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Phoenix.

Turner, who has missed seven straight games, told reporters that he has made "good progress" and was able to "put in a full day of practice" on Tuesday but was unsure if he would be cleared to play Wednesday night. We should have another update on Turner's status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Turner will reportedly come off the bench behind Domantas Sabonis if he does play Wednesday.
Jan 23 - 12:58 PM

Zach Randolph (sore left knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Orlando.

Z-Bo did not play Monday vs. the Hornets, but it was assumed that was simply part of the Kings resting pattern. Thus, it was expected Randolph would start and play 20-plus minutes Tuesday. However, it appears he may sit out both ends of the back-to-back. We should have confirmation, one way or the other, at approximately 5:30 pm EST, when coach Dave Joerger addressed the media pregame.
Jan 23 - 11:59 AM

Clippers coach Doc Rivers said that DeAndre Jordan (ankle) is "really close" to returning and could be ready to play Wednesday vs. Boston.

Jordan has missed each of the Clippers last five games due to a sprained left ankle but is inching his way back to the lineup. "[Jordan] did some stuff yesterday and even thought that he may play [Monday night]. So, he's close," said Rivers. We should have a further update on Jordan's status after Tuesday's practice.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that, during a tense team meeting on Monday, several players challenged the legitimacy of Kevin Love's illness that led him to leave Saturday's game early.

Love only played three minutes in Saturday's embarrassing loss to the Thunder and apparently left the arena early, irking his teammates. Love also did not practice with the team on Sunday. However, it sounds like Love was able to explain himself to his teammates, which calmed things down. The Cavs are dealing with a host of issues, including uninspired defense, which has resulted in them losing nine of their last 12 games. On Monday, Love said he felt better and plans on playing Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Damian Lillard recently met with Blazers owner Paul Allen to "gather an understanding of the organization's direction," according to Chris Hayes of ESPN.

Lillard and Allen met for approximately one hour in Allen's office last Thursday. Per the ESPN report, Allen feared that Lillard might demand a trade, but no such request was made. However, Lillard let it be known that he "has championship aspirations and wanted to fulfill those lofty goals during the remaining years of his prime window." With plenty of drama throughout the NBA, this is another storyline to keep an eye on.

Blake Griffin triple-doubled in Monday's 126-118 loss to the Wolves, posting 32 points with 12 rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and two triples in 37 minutes.

That's his second triple-double of the season and the seventh of his career. Griffin hit 13-of-22 shots and 4-of-7 free throws, but turned the ball over four times including one really bad one with the Clippers down three points in the final 20 seconds. He's been a monster lately with 23.4 points, 9.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 triples over his last five games, and his outlook will be fine as long as the Clippers continue to fight for the No. 8 seed out West.
