Kawhi Leonard continued looking like a superstar in Game 4's 107-86 win over the Heat on Thursday, scoring 20 points with 14 boards, three assists, three steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

While he did start off slow to start the series, Leonard has absolutely demolished the Heat in the last two, averaging 24.5 points, 9.0 boards, 2.5 steals, 2.5 blocks and 2.0 triples on a combined 17-of-25 from the field. This is nothing new and he did the same thing in the 2013 Finals. Excluding the first two games of that series, he averaged 16.6 points, 10.8 boards, 2.4 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.4 triples on 57.6 percent from the field. He is a 22-year-old star in the making.

Andrew Bogut (right hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Bogut has spent the past six games on the sidelines, but he's expected to return to action sometime this week. We should get another update on Bogut following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he is able to give it a go, he'll siphon away some minutes from Salah Mejri.

Wesley Matthews (right hip strain) has been downgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

Rick Carlisle said on Sunday that he was expected Matthews to be good to go for Wednesday's game, but perhaps that statement was a bit overly optimistic. We should have a better idea on his playing status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he's out, Dorian Finney-Smith could earn the start with Justin Anderson logging extended minutes with the second unit. Stay tuned.

Jahlil Okafor (knee) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

There it is. Okafor was downgraded from probable to questionable earlier in the day, but he's now officially out. The 76ers are calling it right knee soreness, and it's worth noting that it's the same knee that he had surgery on last season. The 76ers will proceed with caution, but we'll consider Okafor questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks for now. Nerlens Noel will draw the start Tuesday, but expect to see a lot of Ersan Ilyasova and Dario Saric as well.
Jan 24 - 7:09 PM

Raymond Felton will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the 76ers.

Blake Griffin (knee) is back in the starting lineup after an extended absence, while Austin Rivers will slide to PG. Felton is still looking at a solid workload for several weeks, so sticking with him if you need assists and steals is the right call. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.
Jan 24 - 7:06 PM

David Lee will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Raptors, sending Dewayne Dedmon back to the bench.

The Spurs will be without Kawhi Leonard (hand), Tony Parker (foot) and Pau Gasol (hand) tonight, so it makes sense to bring Lee back into the starting five to help infuse some offense into the first unit. Dejounte Murray, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson and LaMarcus Aldridge will join Lee in the starting five for tonight's game.
Jan 24 - 7:04 PM

Jodie Meeks underwent surgery to correct his dislocated right thumb on Tuesday, and he will be out indefinitely.

Meeks just hasn't been able to stay healthy over the past couple years, and it's looking like this will be another lost season for the 29-year-old veteran. With Evan Fournier (heel) and D.J. Augustin also out of commission, Elfrid Payton will be forced into heavy minutes and Mario Hezonja will have the opportunity to get into the rotation. Meeks belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Jan 24 - 6:53 PM

Nerlens Noel will start at center for Tuesday's game against the Clippers with Joel Embiid (knee) unavailable.

It sounds like Jahlil Okafor (knee) will also be unavailable tonight, so Noel could be logging major minutes, and he's someone to consider throwing out there in daily leagues. Richaun Holmes could also see some extended run with the second unit, but Noel is the guy you want to target in fantasy hoops.
Jan 24 - 6:48 PM

Jared Sullinger will start vs. San Antonio on Tuesday, bumping Lucas Noguiera to the bench.

Sullinger has played in just three games after missing the first 41 games of the season, and is averaging 6.7 points and 2.7 rebounds over those three games. Despite being named the starter on Tuesday he's still not a very attractive add, especially with Patrick Patterson (knee) returning to the lineup on Tuesday night. Lucas Noguiera is averaging 4.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in 19.0 minutes per game in the 29 contests he has appeared in off the bench this season.
Jan 24 - 6:33 PM

Norman Powell will move into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Spurs, with DeMar DeRozan (ankle) unavailable.

Toronto will go with a new starting group today featuring Kyle Lowry, Powell, DeMarre Carroll, Jared Sullinger and Jonas Valanciunas with Lucas Nogueira heading back to the bench. Powell could see some increased opportunity on the offensive end tonight sans DeRozan, but with a tough matchup against San Antonio, he's a risky play in daily leagues. Lowry and JV figure to do the heavy lifting on offense sans DeRozan, and Terrence Ross could see some extended minutes off the bench.
Jan 24 - 6:32 PM

Updating a previous report, Kawhi Leonard (hand) has now been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

With Leonard, Pau Gasol (hand) and Tony Parker (foot) all set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines, we should see LaMarcus Aldridge and David Lee tasked with some increased responsibilities on offense. Kyle Anderson will be drawing another start tonight, and he'll look to build off Monday's 14-point outing, putting him on the radar in DFS. Leonard's hand injury seems relatively minor, so there's a chance he could be back in action Friday in New Orleans.
Jan 24 - 6:21 PM

Manu Ginobili (back) is expected to play Tuesday vs. Toronto.

Ginobili was rested on the front end of a back-to-back set on Monday, but he should both be back in action tonight without a minutes restriction. Tony Parker (foot) is out tonight, so Ginobili might be able to see his minutes in the mid-20s, although he's that's still not enough time to consider him an attractive option in most settings.
