Latest Headlines

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor finally admitted that a trade involving disgruntled All-Star Kevin Love is "likely."

The last quote we got from Taylor on the Love situation was that he expected Love to be with the team during training camp, but it looks like Taylor has finally conceded that Love will be wearing a different jersey next season. The Wolves say that they expect a deal to get done by August 23 or 24, which is when Andrew Wiggins will become available to trade. It now seems all but certain that Love will be teaming up with LeBron James in Cleveland, and No. 1 overall pick Wiggins will be sporting a Timberwolves jersey come training camp.

Nicolas Batum (wrist) will play vs. the Cavaliers on Wednesday.

Batum has a torn ligament on the outside of his wrist but he said recently that he's nearly pain-free, and it sounds like he'll join LaMarcus Aldridge in the play-through-it camp. Batum's scoring has vanished in recent weeks, due in large part to the injury, but he's still returning steady value thanks to across-the-board contributions.

LeBron James (wrist) appears to be closer to doubtful to play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

There are multiple reports from the Blazers side of things that LeBron is unlikely, so we'll be looking for something from the Cavs soon. Again, nothing is official yet, but fantasy owners can plan on LeBron sitting this one out. J.R. Smith benefits the most while we should get more Mike Miller and Matthew Dellavedova. Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will also have more chances to score.

Dwyane Wade is expected to miss "extended time" with his hamstring injury, according to the Sun Sentinel.

He received treatment on Wednesday and the Heat already signed Tyler Johnson to a 10-day deal to fill Wade's spot. Wade missed two weeks with a strained hamstring back in November, which may seem like a fair expectation at this point for his current issue. It will likely be Shabazz Napier benefiting the most while Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole have to step up. Expect to see Chris Bosh carry the offense, as well.

LeBron James (sore wrist) is a game-time decision on Wednesday due to a hard fall he took during Tuesday's game.

He continued playing after the injury on Tuesday and we're guessing he suits up vs. the visiting Trail Blazers, but coach David Blatt said the Cavaliers are "gauging [the injury] right up until game time." If he's forced to sit out, his minutes will be absorbed by a platoon including Mike Miller, Shawn Marion, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith.

JaKarr Sampson will start at shooting guard against the Pistons on Wednesday.

It will be his sixth start at guard this season. In his previous five, Sampson averaged 6.2 points, 1.6 boards, 0.1 steals, 0.1 blocks and 0.4 triples. If those stats are desirable to you, give him a look.

John Wall is listed as questionable to face the Suns, but a team official said he thinks Wall will play.

He wasn't on the injury report for the pre-game notes, but the Wizards are going to entertain the idea of resting him again. He was supposed to have a minutes limit on Tuesday, but it didn't happen. Wall has an Achilles issue, a sore ankle, and migraines, so it's possible he sits. Owners in season-long leagues should start Wall tonight, but he's not a great DFS option.

Michael Carter-Williams (illness) will start Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons

He does feel better [but] he's not 100 percent," said coach Brett Brown. MCW's return sends Larry Drew II back to the bench and he's safe to activate in all lineups even though he's still under the weather, as he's taken on a massive workload with Tony Wroten out of the picture.
Jan 28 - 5:20 PM

George Hill (leg) missed practice on Wednesday.

"To not be able to start the season with these guys and go through all these battles with them and then coming back for a couple games and it's [another injury], that [is bad]," Hill said. Not good. He just can't stay healthy this season and is almost a lock to miss games at some point. We should consider him questionable to play against the Knicks on Thursday.
Jan 28 - 4:58 PM

Paul Pierce (toe) will play against the Suns on Wednesday.

He was questionable for the late game and we get an early report tonight, which is a nice change from Tuesday. Pierce rested on Tuesday and he should be right back to around 28-30 minutes tonight. With John Wall also not on the injury report, basically all of the wings become slightly less attractive, especially Otto Porter and Rasual Butler.
Jan 28 - 4:51 PM

Matt Barnes (abdomen) said he will play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

Back on Sunday, Barnes had a wrap around his waist during warmups. This wasn't reported by the team until he aggravated it on Monday. He should get minutes as long as he's able to play, so give him a look in standard leagues. Plus, this should be an up-tempo game.
Jan 28 - 3:41 PM

Tayshaun Prince said he would rather play with a contender than with the Celtics, according to the Boston Herald.

"Obviously I want to be in a winning situation," Prince said. "Everybody wants to be in a winning situation, make no mistake about it, especially toward the end of your career." He has been playing well with his new team and even played 30 minutes on Monday. Once Prince departs, it should open up some minutes for Marcus Smart, Evan Turner and Jae Crowder.
