Larry Sanders will miss a minimum of six weeks after having surgery to repair his fractured orbital bone on Thursday.

Fantasy owners have no choice but to drop Sanders in all formats, as a return in late March would leave him with around a dozen games at most. Zaza Pachulia is a decent pickup despite his lack of blocks, as he'll continue to start at center, while John Henson's value is also solidified with Sanders out of commission. Sanders has only appeared in 23 games this season, averaging 7.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks, and the only upside is that his disastrous year has accelerated the Bucks' tanking in advance of the highly-regarded 2014 draft.

Gordon Hawyard (sinus congestion) did not practice on Thursday, but he is expected to play Friday vs. the Warriors.

Sinus congestion seems about as minor of an ailment as they come, so owners should not be fretting about him missing any game-time action. He will however have a tough matchup against Golden State on Friday, so that is something to consider for people playing daily leagues.

Steve Kerr said that Andrew Bogut (illness) went through practice on Thursday, and that he is good to go for Friday's game against Utah.

Bogut will likely slide back into the starting lineup upon his return, which will hurt the value of both Marreese Speights and David Lee.

Lakers' GM Mitch Kupchak said that Kobe Bryant will be ready for training camp next season.

"We spoke last night, he's in great spirits," said Kupchak of Bryant. "He's excited about the prognosis and being ready for training camp. The big key is we have to improve the talent level on the team." This is an interesting statement, because Kobe's initial timetable of nine months would have him out until November of next year. Kupchak also said that retirement was not discussed when talking with Kobe, and we'll continue to track The Black Mambas' status closely on his road to recovery.

Deron Williams (ribs) went through the majority of Thursday's practice, however, he remains out for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

Williams was able to go through some contact portions of Thursday's practice, so he is certainly making progress. We'll continue to monitor his status closely, but with Williams out, Jarrett Jack will continue to play heavy minutes for Brooklyn. Jack had taken the starting gig away from Williams even before the injury, so there are no guarantees that Williams will immediately return to the starting lineup when he's 100 percent.
Jan 29 - 2:41 PM

Nick Young (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.

Young will travel with the team on their upcoming four-game road trip, and head coach Byron Scott said he expects Young to return soon. In the meantime, Wayne Ellington, Jordan Clarkson, and Jeremy Lin will all have some increased opportunity for as long as Swaggy P is unavailable. However, with a tough matchup against Chicago tonight, all these guys figure to be risky options in daily leagues.

Updating a previous report, Anthony Davis (groin) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers.

He is dealing with a Grade 1 abductor strain, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. If Davis sits, Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik will be the primary beneficiaries. Stay tuned.
Jan 29 - 2:25 PM

Mo Williams (personal) was not present during the Timberwolves' practice on Thursday, but he will meet the team in Philadelphia on Friday.

We'll be considering Williams questionable for Friday's game against the 76ers, as it's not yet known if he has fully recovered from the hip injury he was dealing with earlier in the week. If Williams sits, Zach LaVine would draw the start in a favorable matchup against the Sixers. Stay tuned.
Jan 29 - 2:09 PM

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau expects Jimmy Butler (illness) to play against the Lakers on Thursday.

Butler has struggled a bit recently as he's averaged 15.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 2.1 steals on just 40.6 percent shooting from the field. His return will cut into the fantasy production of Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich, while Butler's owners can feel free to slot him back into their lineups and hope that Jimmy has some new moves to get back on track.
Jan 29 - 1:39 PM

Dwyane Wade (hamstring) said he is without a timetable for his return.

Wade spoke with the media on Thursday and closed his session by saying, "You won't be seeing me for a while so get a good look at this face." Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said James Ennis will pick up some of Wade's minutes, but Shabazz Napier and Mario Chalmers become the priority pickups for fantasy owners as it sounds like we won't be seeing Wade for at least a couple weeks.
Jan 29 - 1:34 PM

Anthony Davis (groin) has a Grade 1 abductor strain and will be listed as day-to-day.

Though not great news, this is much better than the original reaction when Davis went down Wednesday night. We'll consider him questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers, while Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik would stand to benefit if Davis is unable to play.
Jan 29 - 1:28 PM

Tony Allen (ankle) will play against the Nuggets on Thursday.

Allen will return after missing the Grizzlies' last two games, but he doesn't have much fantasy value fighting for minutes with Jeff Green, Courtney Lee, and Vince Carter. Allen can be left on waiver wires in standard leagues while his return will put a dent in the fantasy values of his aforementioned teammates.
