Metta World Peace intends to change his name to "The Panda's Friend" in honor of his move to China.

World Peace plans to name himself after China's giant panda and recently posted on his Chinese Twitter-like Sina Weibor feed, "New Chinese name coming soon. You guys are going to love it!" The soon-to-be Panda Friend became the Chinese Basketball Association's highest-paid import player when he signed a one-year, $1.43 million with the Sichuan Blue Whales, but doesn't hold any fantasy value outside of leagues that award points-per name-change bonuses.

Skal Labissiere is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz with a left shoulder strain.

All we have to work with is the injury report, so we don't know any details on the severity or whether or not he practiced on Tuesday. If Labissiere can't go, we should see Zach Randolph play a lot of minutes after he was rested in his last outing. The Kings are trying to get their younger guys more playing time, so keep an eye on the second-year big man.

J.J. Redick (left leg) will be re-evaluated in 10 days to two weeks.

An MRI revealed a bone edema and a small cortical crack in the fibular head of his left leg. It's important to note that he's not a lock to return in 10 days to two weeks, but Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Redick is likely going to miss a "short window of time." T.J. McConnell looks like a solid pickup with Philly expected to use more two-PG lineups, while we could see more of Timothe Luwawu and Jerryd Bayless.

Arron Afflalo and Nemanja Bjelica were both ejected in the second quarter of Tuesday's game.

Both players were chirping at each other for a few minutes, but Afflalo started swinging when the two were competing for a rebound. Afflalo is likely looking at a suspension, but he shouldn't be owned in fantasy leagues anyways. While he's out, Wes Iwundu and Mario Hezonja could pick up some extra minutes.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, J.J. Redick’s left leg injury "isn’t serious" and he will "likely miss only a short window of time."

While this is good news, we still don't have a real timetable yet. His fantasy owners should sit tight as we should get an update from Philly on Wednesday morning. While Redick is out, we could see more of T.J. McConnell and Timothe Luwawu.

James Harden (hamstring) has been upgraded to questionable for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.

Mike D'Antoni said on Sunday that there was a chance Harden could make it back to the court for Thursday's game, although Monday's reported incident between the Clippers and the Rockets could complicate things. We're sure to get a few more updates on Harden leading up to Thursday's tip, but if he is able to get back out there, Eric Gordon would return to the bench and Gerald Green's value would take a hit. Stay tuned.

James Ennis (right calf) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

This is the first we're hearing of a calf issue for Ennis, but we'll have a better idea on his status based on what he can do at Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's out, his minutes will likely be divvied up between Dillon Brooks and Jarell Martin.
Jan 16 - 6:03 PM

Al Horford (calf) will play Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.

Horford was never in any danger of missing Tuesday's game, but now we have official confirmation. Go ahead and get him active.
Jan 16 - 5:51 PM

Pau Gasol (right wrist sprain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Brooklyn.

Gasol told reporters on Monday that the nagging injury is hampering him. "I can't really bend it much," Gasol said. "It's been building up. I jammed it and it's been a little swollen." The Spurs are notoriously cautious with their injured players, so it certainly wouldn't be surprised if Gasol was sidelined on Wednesday. If Gasol is ruled out, Davis Bertans and Joffrey Lauvergne would likely pick up most of his minutes. Bertans would be the more attractive streaming option and could be worth a look as a risky DFS punt.
Jan 16 - 5:48 PM

Kawhi Leonard (quad) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

Leonard also wasn't on the injury report on Monday but ended up being a late scratch, which was apparently due to his "return from injury management" program. He'll have had three full days off going into Wednesday's game, so he should be able to get out there barring a setback. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Jan 16 - 5:47 PM

Jayson Tatum (knee) is good to go for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

Tatum went through most of Monday's practice and looked fine at shootaround, so we wouldn't anticipate any sort of minutes limit for him tonight. Feel free to get him active.
Jan 16 - 5:40 PM

Tyler Johnson (ankle) will not be required to undergo an MRI, but he is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. Milwaukee.

Johnson could miss a few games, but the fact that he's avoiding an MRI suggests he's not dealing with anything too serious. We should get official confirmation on his status following Wednesday's shootaround, and if he's out, Wayne Ellington could see heavy minutes as a starter. Stay tuned.
