Clippers sign G Maalik Wayns.

It's just a 10-day deal for Wayns after he was waived on Sunday. Wayns' knee issue has kept him off the court all season, but signing him to a 10-day deal means he could be healthy enough to play for the banged-up Clippers. He has very little fantasy value.

James Harden left Saturday's game with a knee injury and his return is questionable.

He suffered the injury on a drive to the basket and immediately grasped his knee. Harden limped slowly to the locker room so we should be able to provide an update very soon. Stay tuned.

Kevin Durant (toe) will start in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies.

After two straight games on the sidelines, Durant will return to action in a crucial game against a strong Memphis team. Durant's probably not going to be 100 percent, but he's still obviously a must-start option. Perry Jones will move to the bench with this news and is safe to cut in almost all leagues.
Jan 31 - 7:59 PM

Gorgui Dieng will come off the bench on Saturday against the Cavs.

First things first, do not even think about dropping Dieng. He's a wonderful per-minute player in fantasy leagues and he should see minutes in the mid-20s. He's still likely to put up mid-to-late round value.
Jan 31 - 7:53 PM

Mo Williams (hip) and Zach LaVine (ankle) will not play against the Cavs on Saturday.

With Ricky Rubio (ankle) out for one more game, it'll be Lorenzo Brown in the starting lineup against Kyrie Irving. Williams shouldn't be out for too long and Rubio will play Monday, so there's no need to add Brown. He's worth a look in DFS, though.
Jan 31 - 7:34 PM

Rajon Rondo (head) will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Magic.

He was struck in the head by teammate Richard Jefferson's foot while trying to collect a loose ball and was ruled out for the rest of the game a few moments later. Rondo's nose was pouring blood right after it happened, and there's a good chance that he could have a concussion. Rondo isn't expected to be re-evaluated until he returns to Dallas, so we will provide an update as soon as we hear anything. Devin Harris figures to see an uptick in minutes with this news, while Monta Ellis will have even more responsibility.
Jan 31 - 7:32 PM

Ersan Ilyasova (groin) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday.

He just can't stay healthy with the injuries just piling up. Fantasy owners can cut him in most leagues and he'll likely be on a minutes limit upon his return. Expect Jared Dudley and Khris Middleton to benefit most with Ghostface Ilya out of the lineup.
Jan 31 - 6:49 PM

Shabazz Muhammad (oblique) could return to action in as little as one week.

He's been out of action since Jan. 9, so the Wolves will likely ease him back into action upon his return. Muhammad's role is a little uncertain now that Kevin Martin is healthy, but Muhammad should get some as the season progresses with the Wolves looking towards the future, making him worth a flier in most leagues.
Jan 31 - 6:42 PM

Zach LaVine (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Cavs on Saturday.

It's going to come down to the wire and the Wolves tend to play things close to the vest most nights. LaVine rolled his ankle badly on Friday, but he was able to return. If he's out and if Mo Williams can't go, it'll be Lorenzo Brown against Kyrie Irving.
Jan 31 - 6:37 PM

Kevin Durant (toe) is going through warmups on Saturday before the game against the Grizzlies.

He is a game-time decision and we should have news on his status soon. It appears Durant is at least trying to suit up for a very important game. His owners will want to check back soon. If he's out, Perry Jones will start while Dion Waiters and Reggie Jackson benefit most.
Jan 31 - 6:31 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will be out for at least 6-8 weeks.

This is a tough blow for the Hawks, but Sefolosha was only averaging 19 minutes per game this season, so his absence shouldn't make too many fantasy implications. Kent Bazemore will likely fill the void for the Hawks, and with DeMarre Carroll also out with an Achilles injury, Bazemore is worth a look in deeper leagues.
Jan 31 - 6:22 PM

Kenneth Faried (illness) and Darrell Arthur (illness) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

That means there should be a lot of J.J. Hickson and the Nuggets will also use Wilson Chandler as a stretch four. That should also open up some minutes for Alonzo Gee and Danilo Gallinari, as well. Faried should be back for Tuesday against the 76ers.
