Unrestricted free agent Evan Turner has reportedly received some interest from the Celtics and Timberwolves.

The former No. 2 overall pick has struggled to stay relevant in the NBA, scoring inefficiently and playing that Swiss cheese defense. His best statistical season came the first half of the 2013-14 season playing for a tanking Sixers team in the role of "someone has to score." He was then traded to Indiana midseason where his ineptitude was put on full display, showing he could not be "effective" without the ball in his hands. He wouldn't have much value on either of the aforementioned teams.

De’Aaron Fox (right quad contusion) is considered day-to-day.

The day-to-day news is positive for the rookie after suffering an injury on Thursday. Quad contusions have been one of the trickier injuries in the last 12 months with some guys missing months while others are ready to go for the next one. Fox was in visible pain in the loss to the Wolves, so for now he should be considered questionable to play against the Raptors on Sunday. If he's out, Frank Mason III figures to get a nice bump in playing time and he's worth an add in deeper leagues until Fox gets the all clear. Bogdan Bogdanovic also benefits.

Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is questionable for Saturday against the Thunder.

The team is calling it left knee soreness and he is day-to-day. After a second half injury, Porzingis said that his knee was unstable on Thursday night, but it was encouraging to see he was walking around on his own after the game. It's certainly possible the Knicks hold him out, but going against Carmelo Anthony could be a factor at MSG. If he's out, it'll be Michael Beasley time while plenty of usage will go around.

Nikola Jokic (ankle) told reporters that he will play Friday night vs. the Pelicans.

Coach Mike Malone said that Jokic "looked good" in shootaround but was questionable for Friday's game. Malone did say that if Jokic played, he would on a minutes restriction. Despite Jokic's statement, it appears we are heading towards a game-time decision. Check later this evening. We should have the final word on both Jokic and Will Barton (lower back contusion) at approximately 7:30 pm EST, when coach Malone speaks with the media pregame.
Dec 15 - 1:34 PM

Will Barton (lower back contusion) said he went through shootaround and will play Friday night vs. the Pelicans.

Barton left Tuesday's game due to the lower back injury and was unable to play Wednesday. It should be noted that despite Barton's proclamation, coach Mike Malone told reporters that Barton would be a game-time decision. We should have confirmation, one way or the other, when Malone addresses the media 90 minutes prior to tipoff this evening. Gary Harris and Jamal Murray would both be in line for increased roles if Barton is unable to play.
Dec 15 - 1:05 PM

DeMarre Carroll (rest) won't play Friday vs. the Raptors.

No 'revenge game' opportunity for Carroll, who had spent each of the last two seasons in Toronto. Allen Crabbe (knee) is listed as questionable for Friday's game. If Crabbe joins Carroll on the sidelines, the Nets will be shorthanded on the wing. Expect Caris LeVert and Joe Harris to see an uptick in minutes. Nik Stauskas might even see his first action for Brooklyn.
Dec 15 - 1:01 PM

Joel Embiid is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. OKC.

Embiid was a late scratch back on Sunday, but was able to suit up Tuesday vs. the Wolves and ended up logging a career-high 39 minutes en route to a 28-point, 12-rebound, eight-assist gem. Encouragingly, Embiid was able to participate in shootaround on Friday morning. We should get an update shortly. If Embiid is unable to play, Amir Johnson and Richaun Holmes would divvy up minutes in the middle.
Dec 15 - 11:31 AM

Coach Doc Rivers said that Austin Rivers (concussion) has passed concussion protocol but will not play Friday vs. the Wizards.

Coach Rivers told reporters he was not sure if Austin will be available to return Saturday night vs. the Heat in Miami. Milos Teodosic (rest) has also been ruled out of Friday's game, leaving the Clippers very thin at guard. Lou Williams, Sindarius Thornwell and Jawun Evans will all be asked to log heavy minutes on Friday night.
Dec 15 - 11:19 AM

Aaron Gordon (concussion) has been cleared from the NBA’s concussion protocol and will start Friday's game vs. Portland.

Gordon, who had missed each of Orlando's previous two games after colliding with Gary Harris last week vs. Denver, will look to resume his breakout season this evening. Mario Hezonja started in place of Gordon for both those contests. However, even though Gordon is returning, Hezonja will remain in the starting lineup on Friday, as Arron Afflalo (back spasms) has been ruled out of Friday's game.
Dec 15 - 11:16 AM

Milos Teodosic (rest) will not play Friday vs. the Wizards, but will play Saturday night vs. the Heat.

Coach Doc Rivers told reporters that he doesn't want Teodosic, who returned from a foot injury last week, playing in back-to-back games yet. The Clippers backcourt will be shorthanded on Friday, as Austin Rivers (concussion) has also been ruled out of the game vs. Washington. Lou Williams and Sindarius Thornwell will see all the playing time they can handle. Jawun Evans will also log extended minutes.
Dec 15 - 11:14 AM

The MRI on the Justise Winslow's left knee came back clean and he hopes to return within a week, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo.

Winslow has already been ruled out of Friday's game vs. the Hornets. He will also very likely miss Saturday's game vs. the Clippers and Monday's game vs. Atlanta. However, it seems possible he could return for Wednesday's contest in Boston. James Johnson, Josh Richardson and Wayne Ellington will soak up additional minutes while Winslow is sidelined.
Dec 15 - 11:06 AM

LeBron James hit 8-of-18 shots, a 3-pointer and 8-of-12 free throws on his way to 25 points, 12 rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes of Thursday's 121-112 win over the Lakers.

This was LeBron's 59th career triple-double, tying him with Larry Bird for No. 6 all time. LeBron sure doesn't look like he's been in the league for 15 seasons and might finish this one with the best numbers of his career.
