Shawn Marion (ankle) was limping as he walked into the Mavericks' locker room on Sunday, following a 1-of-6 shooting performance in 31 minutes.

He had just two points, four rebounds and two steals in the Mavs' disappointing home loss, but of greater concern is his unsteady gait after the game. The Mavs play two back-to-back sets this week, beginning on Tuesday and Wednesday, so hopefully we'll get a positive medical update on Monday afternoon.

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

Jan 17 - 12:11 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

After playing at least 32 minutes in each of the Rockets first seven games in January, Anderson's minutes have dipped a bit of late. He played just 25 minutes last Friday and then 23 on Sunday. If Anderson is unable to play on Tuesday, Corey Brewer, Sam Dekker, Montrezl Harrell and Trevor Ariza would likely divvy up his playing time. Clint Capela is also slated to return on Tuesday, so that will help fill the frontcourt void left by Anderson.

Clint Capela (knee) will play Tuesday night in Miami vs. the Heat, and will not have a minutes restriction.

Capela will make his return to the lineup after missing 15 games. Coach Mike D'Antoni said there will not be a minutes cap in place, but Capela has missed a month so it would certainly be surprising to see him play more than usual. 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.

Clint Capela (knee) is expected to make his return to the lineup on Tuesday vs. Miami.

"I've been doing pretty good in the workouts by myself, sprinting, dunking. It all felt good," Capela said. He had been playing the best basketball of his career prior to the injury, which was initially projected to cost him 4-6 weeks. He is averaging 11.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks - all career-highs. Make sure he is not floating around your league's waiver wire, as he was returning mid-round value over the first two months of the season.

Marreese Speights scored a season-high 23 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes in Monday's 120-98 win over the Thunder.

He scored 10 of his points in garbage time during the fourth quarter, but Speights was on fire all night, hitting 8-of-15 shots from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. Speights is a per-minute monster, but the problem is that he's only eclipsed the 20-minute mark one time in January (tonight). With Blake Griffin (knee) nearing a return, it's tough to get excited about this. We'll let you know if his role grows.

Raymond Felton scored 15 points on a perfect 7-of-7 shooting in Monday's 120-98 win over the Thunder on Monday.

Chris Paul left the game with a sprained left thumb and did not return, so Felton started the second half and added six assists, three rebounds, one block, one steal and two turnovers in 27 minutes. X-rays were negative on Paul's thumb, but he is scheduled to have an MRI on Tuesday at which point we will know if he needs to miss additional time. Felton looks like a nice speculative pickup with averages of 10.3 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.5 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.7 triples in six previous starts this season.
Jan 17 - 1:13 AM

George Hill 7-of-18 shots and 1-of-8 3-pointers for 17 points, eight rebounds and three assists in 33 minutes of Monday's win over the Suns.

He left late in the game with a sprained ankle, but it doesn't appear to be serious and he wasn't noticeably limping after the game. Injuries have been a huge problem for Hill this season, so check to make sure he's good to go against the Mavericks on Friday against the Mavericks. The good news is that he has a full three days to recover before Friday's game. If he's out, Shelvin Mack would benefit the most.
Jan 17 - 12:07 AM

X-rays on Chris Paul's left thumb came back negative.

This is awesome news because it means we can rule out any breaks. CP3 will have additional tests on Tuesday morning which will include an MRI, so hopefully we get more good news. For now, the Clippers have diagnosed him with a sprained left thumb and he should be considered day-to-day barring another update. If we learn that he will miss additional time, Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers will benefit the most.
Jan 17 - 12:05 AM

Draymond Green triple-doubled in an easy 126-91 win over the Cavaliers on Monday, scoring 11 points with 13 rebounds and 11 assists.

This was his third triple-double of the season and the 17th of his career. Green was incredible on the defensive end, racking up one steal and matching his career-high with five blocks. He didn't have a single turnover in 35 minutes and finished 4-of-6 from the field and 3-of-4 from the stripe in one of his best lines of the season. The Warriors will go for their fifth straight win on Wednesday vs. the Thunder.
Jan 16 - 10:43 PM

Avery Bradley returned from a three-game absence with an Achilles injury on Monday and hit 2-of-9 shots for five points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

Bradley was playing at an incredible level when he exited three games ago and showed some rust tonight. But the minutes were encouraging and he should be put back in fantasy lineups across the board. His five points were a season-low, but he should get back on track soon, as he only missed three games with the injury.
Jan 16 - 10:31 PM

Jerami Grant will start against the Clippers on Monday.

Steven Adams (concussion) is out, but it was initially believed that Enes Kanter would move into the starting five after he was listed as a probable starter. Instead, the Thunder will go with a frontcourt of Grant and Domantas Sabonis to match up with the small-ball lineup of the Clippers. Grant is just a short-term option for owners in need of a couple blocks.
