Greg Oden has been arrested on misdemeanor battery charges early Thursday morning.

According to reports, Oden was taken into custody in Lawrence, Indiana after allegedly punching a woman. While the unrestricted free agent had a visit scheduled with the Clippers, this news will likely push those plans to the back-burner. We'll update this situation as more information becomes available, but things aren't looking good for the former No. 1 overall pick.

Andre Roberson (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game in Indiana.

Billy Donovan hasn't yet announced who will start in his place, but Alex Abrines has been starting over the past three games with Paul George and Roberson missing time, so it could be him again. However, the Thunder lost on Monday with Abrines at the two, so perhaps Donovan wants to switch things up. Either way, with Carmelo Anthony, PG-13 and Russell Westbrook all active, there won't be much opportunity for the fill-in starter.

Will Barton (lower back contusion) is probable to play Wednesday in Boston.

Barton exited Tuesday's blowout win over the Pistons during the closing minutes of the fourth quarter with the back issue, but it looks like that was just a precautionary move by Denver. Season-long owners can probably plan on having him available tonight, but just be sure to check back closer to tip-off for official confirmation on his status.
Dec 13 - 12:15 PM

Nikola Jokic (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Head coach Mike Malone indicated on Tuesday that Jokic was "getting closer," and he was moving around fairly well during Tuesday's shootaround, so perhaps he'll be able to get back out there tonight. We likely won't get official word on his status until after he goes through his pregame routine, but if Jokic is able to get back out there, Mason Plumlee will return to the bench and Kenneth Faried's minutes will take a hit. Stay tuned.

Joe Johnson (wrist) participated during shootaround and will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Bulls.

The Jazz are reportedly expecting Johnson to get back to the court this week, and with him getting through shootaround, it seems there's a good chance he'll be returning from his two-month layoff tonight. With Rodney Hood (ankle) and Johnson getting healthy, Alec Burks' minutes could start trending towards the lower-20s.
Dec 13 - 12:09 PM

Aaron Gordon (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

Gordon is in the final stages of the concussion protocol testing and was able to take contact during Wednesday morning's shootaround, so perhaps he'll be able to get back out there for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers. With him out tonight, Mario Hezonja will be in line for another start and Nicola Vucevic will see a nice bump in usage.
Dec 13 - 11:53 AM

John Wall (knee) is "very likely" to play Wednesday against the Grizzlies, according to sources of Candace Buckner of The Washington Post.

David Aldridge reported on Tuesday that "all signs point" towards Wall getting back to the court for Wednesday's game, and Wall posted a picture to his Instagram account this morning that read "the wolf is awoke," so things are trending in a very positive direction here. There won't be a shootaround with this being the second game of a back-to-back set, so we likely won't get official confirmation until just prior to tip-off, but it looks like Tim Frazier will be heading back to the bench tonight.

Arron Afflalo (back) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.

The Magic are saying that Afflalo has a 50-50 shot of getting on the court tonight, but according to Orlando beat reporter Josh Robbins, Afflalo wasn't quite as optimistic following shootaround. If Afflalo isn't able to get out there, the Magic will be very thin on the wings, which would open up a lot of minutes for guys like D.J. Augustin, Shelvin Mack, Jonathon Simmons and Mario Hezonja, with Simmons offering the most upside. Check back closer to tip-off for another update.

Seth Curry (leg) remains without an official timetable to return and acknowledged that surgery is an option that's still on the table.

"It's like a couple week by couple week situation. It's a tricky situation," said Curry. "There's a chance [I'll need surgery], yeah. The path I'm on right now, the MRI shows it's gotten a little better. But there's a chance (he could need a procedure). It's a tricky situation and hard for me to say. It's very frustrating. Recovery-wise, I get out there and work out and feel OK, and it'll bother me the next day." With no clear return date in sight, Curry belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Joel Embiid, who was a game-time call with a sore back, played a career-high 39 minutes and went off for 28 points, 12 rebounds, a career-high eight assists, a block and a 3-pointer on 8-of-16 shooting in Tuesday's 118-112 overtime win against Minnesota and Karl-Anthony Towns.

He also hit 11-of-12 free throws, two of which were clutch and helped send the game to overtime with 14 seconds left in regulation. And his 3-pointer put the Sixers up seven with 1:30 left in overtime. He scored seven in the extra period. There were eight ties and 15 lead changes in the fourth quarter of this game, which turned out to be the game of the night. The high minutes are a bit of a concern after Embiid missed his last two games with a gimpy back and he received constant treatment all night, but looked incredible, as usual. The Sixers are off until Friday and host the Thunder in that one, so hopefully Embiid's back will have time to rebound. How can you not Trust the Process?

Richaun Holmes had 15 points, 11 rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer on 6-of-11 shooting in 33 minutes and a start in Tuesday's win over the Wolves.

The Sixers went big against the Wolves, who start Karl-Anthony Towns and Taj Gibson, and it paid off for Holmes, who replaced Tim Luwawu (and injured Robert Covington) in the starting five. He might come off the bench in the next one, but he's rolling right now, averaging 13.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.5 3-pointers on 54 percent shooting in 25 minutes a night over his last four. He warrants a pickup in most leagues, assuming you have a player you won't miss if you cut him.
Dec 13 - 1:16 AM

Jimmy Butler hit 15-of-33 shots, 3-of-9 3-pointers and 5-of-5 free throws on his way to a season-high 38 points, six rebounds, three assists and a steal in 46 minutes of Tuesday's 118-112 loss to the Sixers.

Butler hit back-to-back 3-pointers inside the final 47 seconds that helped send the game to overtime, but couldn't connect on a 20-footer at the buzzer that would have won the game for the Wolves. After a famously slow start to the season, Butler is cooking, scoring at least 30 in three of his last five, and averaging 28.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 51 percent shooting over his last five. Hopefully you didn't get rid of him when he was struggling, or maybe you were able to buy low on him before the explosion. Either way, he looks rejuvenated.
