The Brooklyn Nets announced on Thursday that point guard Deron Williams will have surgery on both ankles on May 27.

He mentioned in his exit interview that he anticipated having offseason ankle surgery, and now a date has been set. Williams will reportedly have a bone chip removed from his right ankle while his left will be scoped for removal of bone spurs. He is coming off a very disappointing postseason, averaging only 14.5 points and 5.8 assists in 12 games played. Rumors of the Nets seeking a trade partner willing to take the oft-injured point guard off their hands have already begun to surface, but with $63 million remaining on his contract, moving Williams will be very difficult.

Andrew Bogut (illness) will play on Friday vs. the Jazz, as expected.

Jan 30 - 1:32 PM

DeMarcus Cousins has been announced as Kobe Bryant's replacement for the All-Star game.

Someone was going to get snubbed in the West, and while Cousins is certainly deserving of his All-Star distinction, Damian Lillard is likely livid. Cousins probably feels a bit relieved to make the squad, but he still likely feels a bit disrespected only making it on the account of Bryant being injured. Both Cousins and Lillard figure to be quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues.

Head coach Dave Joerger said Mike Conley's status for Saturday's game vs. OKC is still unknown at this point.

Conley has missed the past two games with a wrist injury, and the Grizzlies continue to be sparse with providing updates on his status. We should get another update on Conley after Saturday morning's shootaround, and if he's again unavailable, it will be Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes splitting minutes at point guard. Stay tuned.

Anthony Davis (groin) said that he is unsure if he will suit up for Friday's game against the Clippers.

Davis added that will try and do everything in his power to get on the floor tonight, and it's looking like he's destined for the dreaded game-time decision. We'll continue to monitor his status closely, but if he's forced to sit, Ryan Anderson, Alexis Ajinca, and Omer Asik will all likely see extended minutes for the Pelicans.
Jan 30 - 12:34 PM

Nicolas Batum (wrist) said that he will play Friday vs. the Hawks.

Batum is going to have a very difficult matchup against DeMarre Carroll of the Hawks today, and with the way he's been struggling as of late, Batum doesn't look like a great play in daily leagues.
Jan 30 - 12:11 PM

Nicolas Batum (wrist) is not being listed on the Trail Blazers' injury report.

While this isn't a definitive statement that Batum will suit up for Friday's game against the Hawks, it is an encouraging sign. We'll continue to monitor his status closely, but it should be noted that Batum has an unfavorable matchup today against the Hawks, so he's not looking like a great option in daily leagues.

LeBron James (wrist) was a limited participant during shootaround, and he remains doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

James has been taking more time off than usual this season, and that has to be frustrating to owners who burned a No. 1 or 2 overall selection on him on draft day. If James sits, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will be the primary beneficiaries, with J.R. Smith also seeing some increased opportunities on offense.
Jan 30 - 11:19 AM

Kevin Love said that he is feeling good physically, and while Chris Kaman's knee to his thigh hurt, he is a go for Friday's game against the Kings.

Those that made a speculative add of Tristan Thompson with the hopes that Love would be unavailable Friday should now temper their expectations. Love will draw a very favorable matchup against the Kings on Friday, and if LeBron James (wrist) is again sidelined, Love will have plenty of opportunity on offense. Stay tuned.

With Dwyane Wade (hamstring) sidelined, it's likely that Norris Cole will slide into the starting lineup for Miami's game against Dallas on Friday, according to beat reporter Ira Winderman.

While this is just speculation, the move does make sense as it would help combat the quickness of Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis. Shabazz Napier will also be an option for Erik Spoelstra and we'll be sure to list the starters prior to tip-off. However, Mario Chalmers and Chris Bosh are likely the guys to benefit most with Wade sidelined, and those are the guys that should be targeted in daily leagues.

The Magic are reportedly very close to firing head coach Jacque Vaughn, and it's gotten to the point that it's not if, but when.

Currently, the only reason Vaughn remains the head coach of the Magic is the lack of a natural candidate to promote to interim head coach from a young, inexperienced staff of assistants. While Vaughn has been successful in creating an environment of player development and hard work in the post-Dwight Howard era, the Magic's continued struggles on the defensive end and unimpressive play at home have some calling for his job.

Jimmy Butler said he hurt his left knee against the Lakers on Thursday and is unsure if he will play against the Suns on Friday.

He didn't go to the locker room and was not in visible pain on the bench in the closing minutes of the game. Butler usually sucks it up and plays through minor injuries, so he has a good chance to play on the second game of a back-to-back set. If he is out, Tony Snell and Aaron Brooks benefit most.
