Enes Kanter came off the bench for 15 points, a season-high 19 rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes on Tuesday.

Marvin Williams started, but was unable to finish due to a lingering knee issue, which could end his season and open the door for Kanter to play like this the rest of the way. He's hot right now, averaging 12.8 points, 11.2 rebounds and 0.4 blocks over his last five games. As you can see, the blocks were a welcomed sight tonight.

Jordan Clarkson (ankle) and Tarik Black (ankle) are expected to play Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

Both guys were active at shootaround, and this ankle injury for Clarkson seemingly came out of nowhere (he hasn't missed any games because of it), so owners can go ahead and get him on the active roster. We'll have official confirmation closer to tip-off.

Nerlens Noel (ankle) said he expects to play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

"It's still a little sore, but I definitely should be able to go [Wednesday]," said Noel after practice on Tuesday. Noel had been playing well prior to injuring his ankle on Saturday, which forced him to sit out Monday's game. If Noel is available, coach Brett Brown will have a tough decision to make. Does he send Jahlil Okafor back to the bench to collect DNP-CD's, or limit Noel's minutes as the sole center on the second unit? Stay tuned...

T.J. McConnell (wrist) is "going to try to play" on Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

McConnell missed Monday's game after spraining his right wrist on Saturday. He has been fitted with a splint and will attempt to give it a go. We will likely have to wait until after pre-game warm-ups on Wednesday before we get official word. For what it's worth, he is listed as doubtful in the game notes. If T.J. can't play, Sergio Rodriguez will likely draw the start, with rookie Chasson Randle seeing minutes off the bench.

Andre Drummond (knee sprain) did not practice with the team on Tuesday, but reportedly "will be fine."

Drummond sprained his knee on Sunday, which caused him to leave the game for a brief period. However, he did return, finishing with 15 points and 17 rebounds in 32 minutes. It sounds like the absence from Tuesday's practice is purely precautionary, as Pistons beat writer Rod Beard tweeted that Drummond is "fine." Thus, we expect Drummond to suit up Wednesday vs. the Hawks.
Jan 17 - 1:05 PM

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

Mirotic, who has missed four straight games due to strep throat, has been a disappointment this season, averaging career-lows in points (9.5), assists (0.8), field goal percentage (.387), 3-point percentage (.312) and free-throw percentage (.758). Hopefully, he can bounce back in the second half of the season to salvage his 2016-17 campaign. Mirotic's return will cut into Doug McDermott's minutes and likely knock Bobby Portis out of the rotation.
Jan 17 - 12:11 PM

Clint Capela (knee) will return to the starting lineup Tuesday night in Miami, but will "probably" play fewer than 20 minutes.

Capela will return after missing 15 games. Coach Mike D'Antoni indicated that there will not be a minutes cap in place, but did say: "His condition being what it is, we'll keep him under 20 minutes, probably." 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.

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.
Jan 17 - 1:24 AM

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.
