Latest Headlines

Dennis Schroder (back), Ersan Ilyasova (shoulder), Kent Bazemore (rest), Tyler Cavanaugh (right ankle) have all been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons.

The Hawks have begun to shift into 'tank mode,' sitting their two leading scorers the day before the All-Star break begins. Schroder popped up on the injury report with lower back stiffness last week, but hasn't missed a game since before Christmas. With Schroder sidelined, Malcolm Delaney and Isaiah Taylor will divvy up minutes at point guard. Schroder will likely be good to go next week, but could be sporadically rested over the second half of the season.

Robert Covington and Dario Saric were unable to practice on Tuesday due to not having been cleared by the league.

The paperwork still needs to go through on the Jimmy Butler deal, which Tom Thibodeau said he hopes becomes official by Tuesday afternoon. RoCo and Saric were, however, in attendance at Tuesday's practice, and they should both be cleared in time for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans. Thibodeau said he didn't know if they would start right off the bat, but said the new additions will have a "significant role" on this Timberwolves team.

Caris LeVert might be able to make it back to the court in 2-3 months.

This speculative timetable is coming from Dr. David J. Chao, who has 17-plus years of experience as an orthopedic surgeon, but it needs to be noted that he didn't personally meet with LeVert and he has only worked with NFL teams. We should get an official timetable from the Nets once LeVert is released from the hospital, but the main takeaway here is that gruesome injury wasn't as bad as it looked, initially. Owners with an open IR-spot might want to hold on until we get official word on the return date from Brooklyn.

Damian Lillard (right knee) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

Lillard sat out Tuesday's practice, but then got in a workout afterward and said he hopes to play on Wednesday. He spent about four hours rehabbing his right knee on Monday but said he's mostly just dealing with discomfort. He'll go through another workout on Wednesday before determining his status for that game, but as of right now, we'd expect him to play.
Nov 13 - 2:54 PM

Jonathan Isaac (right ankle) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

Isaac is making steady progress in his recovery from the ankle injury, and we'll have a better idea on his status following Wednesday's shootaround. If he is able to get back out there, Wesley Iwundu will return to the bench and Terrence Ross's value could take a bit of a hit. Stay tuned.
Nov 13 - 2:21 PM

Russell Westbrook (left ankle) participated at Tuesday's practice.

Westbrook was able to do some running and cutting, but overall, it was a fairly light practice without any real contact, so it's unclear if he'll be able to get back to the court for Wednesday's game against the Knicks. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at shootaround, so owners can expect to get another update tomorrow afternoon.

Caris LeVert has been diagnosed with a dislocated right foot that will not require surgery, and he is expected to return this season.

This qualifies as great news, considering the circumstances. When LeVert crumbled to the floor on Monday night, with his foot/ankle pointing the wrong way, it was assumed that he was dealing with a devastating injury that would sideline him for the entire 2018-19 season, and possibly beyond. However, per the Nets statement, there were no fractures and only moderate ligament damage and "(LeVert) is expected to return to full strength and resume all basketball activities without any limitations this season." We can expect an update on his status, with a firm timetable for his return, after LeVert leaves the hospital.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 18 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one blocked shot in 38 minutes in Monday's win over Golden State.

Gilgeous-Alexander continues to make progress during his young career, and on Monday he extended his streak of scoring in double figures to three straight games. And the Kentucky product was efficient from a shooting standpoint, finishing the night 8-for-11 from the field. Over his last three games, Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 17.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game, shooting 55.6% from the field.

Bogdan Bogdanovic went off for a season-high 22 points with three assists, one rebound and three triples in just 25 minutes vs. the Spurs on Monday, leading the Kings to a 104-99 win.

The Kings snapped a 14-game losing streak against the Spurs and improved to 8-6 on the season. Bogdanovic had his minutes limit increased from 20 to 25 tonight, so he may be up to 30 by the end of the week. He has to be added everywhere because he's a wing that can do it all, but it's possible he gets another maintenance day because the Kings have been very cautious with him.

Lou Williams scored the Clippers' final 10 points of overtime in Monday's win over Golden State, finishing with 25 points, six assists, two rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

Williams didn't shoot the ball particularly well from the field, finishing 5-for-18. But he did manage to go 14-for-14 from the foul line, and his big plays late proved to be the difference in the Clippers' 121-116 victory. Over the last three games Williams is just 18-for-55 from the field, but he'll have plenty of opportunities to snap out of his current slump. He was one of two Clippers to attempt 18 shots in Monday's win, with Tobias Harris being the other.
Nov 13 - 1:11 AM

Joe Ingles scored a team-high 19 points in Monday's 96-88 win over the Grizzlies.

He added six rebounds, five assists, one steal and three triples, his second impressive line in a row after matching his career-high of 27 points on Friday with seven assists, five rebounds, one steal, one block and five triples in 35 minutes. He suffered a cut above his left eye tonight and was able to keep playing after the training staff bandaged him up, but Kevin McHale had one of the quotes of the night when he said Ingles' wrap looked like a "civil war bandage." Joe Ingles is the man.
Nov 13 - 12:40 AM

Harrison Barnes scored a season-high 23 points (7-of-16 FG, 8-of-9 FT) with five rebounds, one assist, a season-high four steals, and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Monday.

Barnes enjoyed playing against the Bulls defense. His season has been off to a rocky start after being hampered by a hamstring injury until late October. He's averaging 16.2 points and 5.0 rebounds on just 40% shooting over his last five games. He's a solid buy-low target as he gets up to speed.
