Latest Headlines

Serge Ibaka went to the locker room due to a left calf injury and is doubtful to return to Thursday's Game 6.

He had some cramping in his calves back in April, but it's unclear if this injury is an aggravation. With Ibaka out, Nick Collison will have to step it up. The Thunder are not the same team without Serge and their defense is going to suffer. Hopefully he'll be able to suit up for Sunday.

Updating a previous item, Klay Thompson (personal) is now questionable to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

It was just five minutes ago Klay was called out for this game, but now there is a chance he can make it back with the team in time for tonight after dealing with a family matter. He'll likely be a game-time call for the late start tonight, so DFS players likely won't know when it's time to set your lineup. If he's out, Pat McCaw, Ian Clark and Andre Iguodala would benefit.

Chris Paul underwent successful surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb, and he's expected to miss the next 6-8 weeks of action.

This timetable puts CP3 back on the court right around the fantasy playoffs, but in the meantime it'll be Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers running the point in Los Angeles. Blake Griffin (knee) isn't expected to get back for at least another 1-2 weeks, so Jamal Crawford could be looked to more often on offense. If you're in a standard league and struggling in the standings without an IR-spot, selling CP3 for pennies or outright cutting him may be the only course of action here.

Bismack Biyombo (knee) will play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

Biyombo took a nasty spill during Monday's game, but he played through it, and after resting up on Tuesday he'll be good to go for tonight's game. Biyombo hasn't been very good this season, owning meager averages of 6.1 points, 7.6 boards and 1.3 blocks per contest, so while his bones may very well be infused with liquid adamantium, he's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 1:33 PM

Kevin Love (back) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, and he's being listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Suns.

Love didn't take any contact during Wednesday's practice, and with a matchup against the 13-28 Suns, the Cavs may want to play it safe with Love in order to have him 100 percent for Saturday's matchup with the Spurs. We should get another update following Thursday morning's shootaround, but it's looking like he'll be headed for a game-time call. If he's out, Channing Frye would likely draw the start, with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving being asked to do a bit more on offense.
Jan 18 - 12:40 PM

Jon Leuer (knee) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Hawks.

Leuer did get in a full practice on Tuesday and participated during shootaround, and head coach Stan Van Gundy acknowledged that he could return to action tonight, so things are trending in a positive direction here. If Leuer does get back to the court, Tobias Harris will return to the bench and Stanley Johnson could lose some minutes. Check back closer to tip-off for an official update.
Jan 18 - 12:32 PM

Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) said that he will play Wednesday vs. Orlando.

Davis really likes going up against the Magic, in eight career outings against Orlando he owns impressive averages of 18.8 points, 13.4 boards, 1.4 dimes, 1.4 steals and a whopping 4.1 swats per contest, so he's on the radar as a potential DFS target. Just check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off.
Jan 18 - 12:12 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) will not play Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

This will be KCP's third straight game on the sidelines, and it's currently unclear exactly when he'll be able to get back to the court. Reggie Bullock started in Caldwell-Popes' place on Sunday, but Stanley Johnson produced the better stat line in 34 minutes off the bench. Jon Leuer (knee) went through shootaround and he could be back on the court tonight, and his return could cut into Johnson's minutes. For now, we'll consider Caldwell-Pope questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.
Jan 18 - 12:08 PM

Andre Drummond (knee) and Aron Baynes (knee) will play Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

Drummond and Baynes both sat out Tuesday's practice with some knee soreness, but neither injury was ever believed to be serious, so there's no reason to anticipate any sort of minutes restrictions tonight. Feel free to get Drummond active for tonight's battle of the bigs with Dwight Howard.
Jan 18 - 12:04 PM

Nerlens Noel (ankle) is probable to play Wednesday vs. Toronto.

Noel got in a full practice on Tuesday and said that he was planning on suiting up for Wednesday's game, so it's looking like the ankle issue will only end up costing him one game on the sidelines. Joel Embiid (illness) could miss tonight's game, which would present both Noel and Jahlil Okafor with the opportunity for some extended minutes.
Jan 18 - 11:45 AM

Joel Embiid (illness) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

Embiid wasn't able to go through shootaround, so he's likely headed for a game-time call here. Nerlens Noel (ankle) is probable, so if Embiid is out, it'll be Jahlil Okafor and Noel manning the five-spot with Noel being the more attractive target. Stay tuned.
Jan 18 - 11:44 AM

T.J. McConnell (wrist) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

McConnell said on Tuesday that he was going to "try to play" today, and he was able to go through shootaround without wearing the wrist splint, so things are trending in a positive direction here. He was playing really well with the starting unit prior to going down, so it'll be interesting to see if he's imminently re-inserted back into the starting five, or if coach Brett Brown opts to bring him along more slowly off the bench. Either way, if T.J. gets back, Sergio Rodriguez's minutes will take a hit.
