Wes Johnson hit just 1-of-9 shots and missed all seven of his 3-point attempts for two points, four rebounds, one assist and four steals in 30 minutes, as the Lakers suffered their worst loss in history on Thursday.

The Clippers won 142-94 for their biggest win ever, while the Lakers suffered their worst loss of all time against their arena mates. Johnson was terrible and it looks as if the Lakers' makeshift lineup has completely quit on Mike D'Antoni. And with Xavier Henry back in the mix for the Lakers, guys like Jordan Farmar, Jodie Meeks, Johnson, Kent Bazemore and Kendall Marshall have all seen their minutes get a little dicey. This game was over shortly after tip off, so there's no need to panic about Johnson, or anyone else. But this was an embarrassing loss for the Lakers and something's going to have to give soon, as D'Antoni has never looked less in control of a team than he does right now.

Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) will play Wednesday vs. the Magic, as expected.

Davis looked fine while going through his pregame routine, and there's been no discussion of a minutes restriction, so his owners can feel free to fire him up. Alvin Gentry may have had the quote of the year during his pregame interview, stating, "AD will play hurt. He's played hurt since the day he got here." Yup.

Evan Fournier (heel, foot) will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He tried to return from a heel injury last week and apparently it's caused additional problems to his foot due to compensation. Fournier's owners obviously have to stash him. Jodie Meeks should play minutes around 30 while Elfrid Payton has also been terrific without Fournier lately. Meeks is worth a look in standard leagues.

Klay Thompson (personal) flew to Portland to visit his ill grandfather today and intends to return to Bay Area to play against the Thunder on Wednesday night, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

Thompson has told general manager Bob Myers he could fly back in time for the game tonight, so Thompson looks like he's closer to probable for this game. If he isn't back in time, we'll see more Pat McCaw Ian Clark and Andre Iguodala could play more.
Jan 18 - 6:31 PM

Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

Corey Brewer got the start on Tuesday with Anderson on the sidelines, and Sam Dekker saw some increased playing time with the second unit, but neither guy did that much. Instead, James Harden took on most of the offensive burden and popped off for a 40-point triple-double, and it'll likely be more of the same this evening.
Jan 18 - 6:28 PM

Jon Leuer (knee) will not play against the Hawks on Wednesday night.

The Pistons will hold him out for his fifth game. With Leuer and Kentavious-Caldwell Pope (shoulder) out, the Pistons will have to play Reggie Bullock, Stanley Johnson and Aron Baynes more than usual. Tobias Harris and Marcus Morris also slightly benefit.
Jan 18 - 6:25 PM

Montrezl Harrell will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game, sending Clint Capela to the bench.

Capela is being eased back into things after a lengthy layoff, so it doesn't make sense to have him start if he's only going to play around 10 minutes or so. Harrell will likely split minutes at the five-spot with Capela and Nene, so he's not a very attractive option in most formats despite the starter tag.

Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

His knee injury has kept him to just two games in 2017. Luckily for the Raptors, they have Jared Sullinger (foot) back for limited minutes -- he's likely only going to play 10-15 minutes tonight. The Raptors will also likely go smaller tonight while Pascal Siakam could play 20 minutes. None of these guys mentioned are worth using in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 6:17 PM

Jared Sullinger (foot) will make his season debut and play limited minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

Wow. This comes as a surprise after Sullinger was cleared for practice on Jan. 13. He's coming off a foot surgery and chances are his conditioning isn't 100 percent yet. Sullinger will likely have a minutes limit for the foreseeable future, so he's only worth a pickup in deeper leagues right now. His upside isn't the greatest.
Jan 18 - 6:09 PM

Joakim Noah (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Celtics.

He has a sore left ankle and didn't go through shootaround. Noah has been surprisingly healthy lately, but he could miss additional time going forward given his track record. With him out, Kyle O'Quinn should get a bump in minutes and the same goes for Willy Hernangomez. If you need a big man, KOQ is worth a pickup.
Jan 18 - 6:03 PM

Joel Embiid (illness) will start Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Embiid could be limited tonight due to the illness, but he remains a must-start guy any time he takes the court. With him active, Nerlens Noel (ankle) and Jahlil Okafor (ankle) will split the reserve minutes, with Noel offering a bit more appeal due to his defensive upside.
Jan 18 - 5:21 PM

Nerlens Noel (ankle) will play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

Joel Embiid (illness) is still questionable to play. Noel should be looking at minutes in the low 20s regardless of Embiid's status. Jahlil Okafor could be getting minutes in the upper 20s or he could be a DNP-CD. Noel is worth owning in standard leagues right now.
