Isaiah Thomas (right quad contusion) did not practice on Tuesday and he's questionable for Wednesday's game vs. New York.

IT2 has also been playing with sprained ligaments in his shooting wrist, and coach Mike Malone has hinted that he might rest Thomas, so owners should be on red alert for his first DNP of the season. If he does sit out, rookie PG Ray McCallum would likely take the reins as a starter.

Kemba Walker is reportedly being advised by Charlotte management to undergo surgery due to the fact that he is dealing with an injury to his meniscus.

Walker is set to undergo an MRI on Monday, after which we will know more about his status. It's not yet known whether he is dealing with a separate tear, or if it's the same cyst that he's been dealing with since high school. However, if the surgery is done for a cyst, he would be looking at around 6-weeks on the sidelines; but a separate tear would likely be the end of Walker’s season. Stay tuned.

Hassan Whiteside put up a magnificent triple-double on Sunday, racking up 14 points, 13 rebounds, and 12 blocks over just 26.6 minutes of action.

The 12 blocks were not only an NBA season-high, but also a single-game franchise setting record in Miami. When speaking after the game, Whiteside joked: "I’m just trying to get my NBA2K rating up." While that will likely go up, his ownership in fantasy leagues is also due for a huge increase (currently 48 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues) so make sure he's not sitting on your waiver wire.

When head coach Kevin McHale was asked about Terrence Jones' availability for Wednesday's game vs. Dallas, he did not rule Jones out and said that he will return "sooner rather than later."

McHale added that Jones could return "within a week," and it appears he is getting very close to playing basketball again. However, he will be fighting for minutes with Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith, so it will be very difficult for him to produce the same way he was at the beginning of the season. Still, he's worth a look in deeper leagues.

With news coming out that Brandon Jennings will miss the remainder of the season with an Achilles injury, D.J. Augustin is set to become the starting point guard in Detroit.

Augustin is averaging 13.3 points, 6.3 assists, 1.3 three-pointers, and 3.3 turnovers through three games as a starter for Detroit. Make sure he's not sitting on your waiver wire, as he has now officially become a must-own player in all standard leagues.

Brandon Jennings will miss the remainder of the season with a full tear of his left Achilles.

This is a tough blow for the Pistons, and we wish Jennings a speedy recovery. Typically these types of injuries take 7-12 months for a complete recovery, and that's just talking about returning to the court. D.J. Augustin becomes a must-own guy with Jennings unavailable for the rest of the season, and Spencer Dinwiddie will also enter the rotation as the primary reserve off the bench. If Augustin is sitting on your waiver wire, go grab him now as he's averaged 13.3 points, 6.3 assists, and 1.3 three-pointers as a starter for Detroit.

Dwight Howard (ankle) did not participate during shootaround, and he is considered a game-time decision for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

It's worth noting that head coach Kevin McHale said he's "not real hopeful," that Dwight will play tonight, so it's sounding like he's closer to doubtful than a game-time decision. If Howard is forced to sit that Rockets could go with Joey Dorsey at the center spot, or it's possible they slide over Donatas Motiejunas to the center position and start Josh Smith at power forward. We'll have a better idea of the starting lineup closer to tip-off, but Smith and Motiejunas would likely be the primary beneficiaries.

Kevin Martin (wrist) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.

He wasn't able to practice on Saturday and he is reportedly still dealing with some swelling in his wrist, so he is probably closer to doubtful. Martin is still worth a stash for his upside in points and 3-pointers, but his owners will have to be patient as he will likely be eased into action when he does return. If Martin can't play, Robbie Hummel will continue to start for Minnesota, but is only an option in deeper leagues.

The Utah Jazz announced that they have signed Elijah Millsap to a multi-year deal on Sunday, but no details have been released just yet.

He was previously with the Jazz on a couple of 10-day contracts, so obviously he did enough to make his stay in Utah permanent. Millsap is currently averaging 5.7 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 20.4 minutes per game this season, but is still only worth a look in deeper leagues unless his role grows substantially.

Amir Johnson is dealing with a sore left shoulder and is considered questionable to play vs. Detroit on Sunday.

He was benched during the second half of Friday's game and this could be one of the reasons why. We will update Johnson's status when we know more but owners should have a backup plan ready. If Johnson sits, Patrick Patterson has been on fire lately and would be worth a look in most leagues while he is this hot. Stay tuned.

Hassan Whiteside will play against the Bulls on Sunday.

He did say his ankle was at 90 percent, but he has simply been too good to keep out of lineups. We will let you know how his ankle holds up after the game. Chris Andersen's value takes a big hit with this news and can be dropped in most leagues.

Amare Stoudemire suffered a sprained ankle and a sprained wrist during Saturday's game with Charlotte.

"I suffered a sprained ankle and sprained right wrist,’’ Stoudemire said. "It was a lot of physical contact out there. A lot of my moves attacking the basket, I got swiped down on it, caught my wrist almost every time. I tried to play through it but I was struggling. I couldn’t be myself out there.’’ The news just keeps getting worse for Amare, and it's already known that his knee is also a major concern moving forward. At this point it is safe to assume that Amare doesn't have a great shot to play on Monday vs. the Kings, but we will be sure to monitor his status closely. If he does end up sitting, expect to see more of Cole Aldrich, Jason Smith, Lou Amundson and Lance Thomas.
