Glen Davis (shoulder) said he's definitely playing on Monday night against the Bulls.

He went to the basket on Sunday night and crashed under the basket, which caused him a lot of pain and to remain down for a couple minutes. Davis actually took the Magic's last shot in the game after coming back -- and air-ball 3-point attempt. He has a low upside, so fantasy owners can use him like they normally would.

Phil Jackson reportedly met with Carmelo Anthony on Tuesday to ask him if he wants to remain in New York.

One source of Ramona Shelburne described the meeting as far more contentious than previous sit downs between the two, and it looks like things in New York are reaching a boiling point with the Knicks falling out of the playoff hunt, and a Jackson confidant Charley Rosen recently publishing an extremely negative piece on Melo stating he's "outlived his usefulness in New York." Time and again Melo has stated that his desire is to remain with the Knicks, but neither side appears to be happy right now, so Anthony may be closer than ever to considering waiving his no-trade clause.

Steven Adams (concussion) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

To be clear, this report is coming from the game notes, which are notoriously unreliable, so we'd recommend checking back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Jerami Grant got the start in his place on Monday night vs. the Clippers, although the game was a massive blowout, so head coach Billy Donovan might want to rethink that strategy. If Adams can't give it a go on Wednesday, both Grant and Enes Kanter should see an uptick in minutes. Stay tuned.

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) could get back to the court for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Head coach Jeff Hornacek also hinted that he'd like to start Porzingis at center with Carmelo Anthony moving to the four-spot, a move that would result in Joakim Noah going to the bench, and that demotion likely wouldn't go over very well with the underperforming 31-year-old center who is due $17 million this season. The losses in New York have been piling up as of late, so Hornacek needs to make some changes, even if it upsets the veterans.

Luke Walton is that skeptical Larry Nance (knee) will be able to get back to the court this week.

Nance recently went through some 1-on-1 work with Ivica Zubac, but he's still yet to go through a full practice with the team, and until that happens he won't be getting back to the court. As long as Nance is on the sidelines, Julius Randle will continue to see his playing time in the mid-30s.

Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Davis hit the ground hard on Monday, and given that he tends to be a slow healer, we feel he's probably a bit closer to doubtful for Wednesday's game. If he's out, Terrence Jones would likely move back into the starting five, and there would be more minutes available for Donatas Motiejunas, while Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans would be tasked with more offensive responsibilities. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Jordan Clarkson (ankle) and Tarik Black (ankle) are expected to play Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

Both guys were active at shootaround, and this ankle injury for Clarkson seemingly came out of nowhere (he hasn't missed any games because of it), so owners can go ahead and get him on the active roster. We'll have official confirmation closer to tip-off.
Jan 17 - 2:22 PM

Nerlens Noel (ankle) said he expects to play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

"It's still a little sore, but I definitely should be able to go [Wednesday]," said Noel after practice on Tuesday. Noel had been playing well prior to injuring his ankle on Saturday, which forced him to sit out Monday's game. If Noel is available, coach Brett Brown will have a tough decision to make. Does he send Jahlil Okafor back to the bench to collect DNP-CD's, or limit Noel's minutes as the sole center on the second unit? Stay tuned...

T.J. McConnell (wrist) is "going to try to play" on Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

McConnell missed Monday's game after spraining his right wrist on Saturday. He has been fitted with a splint and will attempt to give it a go. We will likely have to wait until after pre-game warm-ups on Wednesday before we get official word. For what it's worth, he is listed as doubtful in the game notes. If T.J. can't play, Sergio Rodriguez will likely draw the start, with rookie Chasson Randle seeing minutes off the bench.
Jan 17 - 1:18 PM

Andre Drummond (knee sprain) did not practice with the team on Tuesday, but reportedly "will be fine."

Drummond sprained his knee on Sunday, which caused him to leave the game for a brief period. However, he did return, finishing with 15 points and 17 rebounds in 32 minutes. It sounds like the absence from Tuesday's practice is purely precautionary, as Pistons beat writer Rod Beard tweeted that Drummond is "fine." Thus, we expect Drummond to suit up Wednesday vs. the Hawks.
Jan 17 - 1:05 PM

Nikola Mirotic (illness) will play Tuesday vs. the Mavs.

Mirotic, who has missed four straight games due to strep throat, has been a disappointment this season, averaging career-lows in points (9.5), assists (0.8), field goal percentage (.387), 3-point percentage (.312) and free-throw percentage (.758). Hopefully, he can bounce back in the second half of the season to salvage his 2016-17 campaign. Mirotic's return will cut into Doug McDermott's minutes and likely knock Bobby Portis out of the rotation.
Jan 17 - 12:11 PM

Clint Capela (knee) will return to the starting lineup Tuesday night in Miami, but will "probably" play fewer than 20 minutes.

Capela will return after missing 15 games. Coach Mike D'Antoni indicated that there will not be a minutes cap in place, but did say: "His condition being what it is, we'll keep him under 20 minutes, probably." Capela was averaging 24.5 minutes per game over Houston's first 28 games this season. Montrezl Harrell had played relatively well in Capela absence, but will now get bumped back to the bench.
