Paul George filled it up against the Rockets during a 98-80 win on Thursday, scoring 20 points with 11 rebounds, six assists, two turnovers, three 3-pointers and a season-high six steals.

The steals numbers have been the story with George now leading the NBA with 2.8 per game. November has been a steal fest, averaging 3.6 steals with 17.8 points, 7.6 boards, 5.2 dimes, 0.6 blocks and 2.4 treys. He's still not even hitting his shots and he's turning top-15 value on the season, so he is a good bet to be a top-10 player this season.

Jimmy Butler (wrist) and Ben Simmons (illness) are questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

Butler missed Monday's game against the Rockets, but he was at the practice facility on Tuesday and went through most of the practice, so he feels a bit closer to probable. Simmons, on the other hand, didn't even show up for Tuesday's practice, so there's certainly a chance he skips Wednesday's game. We'll get another update on both these guys following Wednesday's shootaround.

Jeff Teague (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

Speaking with reporters before Tuesday's shootaround, coach Ryan Saunders said that he "wasn't sure" about Teague's status for tonight after he tried to play through the illness on Sunday. "We’re still waiting to get word on him with things," Saunders said. Check bad later this evening for an update. If Teague is unable to suit up, Derrick Rose and Tyus Jones would soak up extra minutes at point guard.
Jan 22 - 1:49 PM

Kawhi Leonard (rest) is listed as out for Tuesday's game vs. the Kings.

Tuesday will be the third straight game the Raps have sat down Kawhi due to "load management." Jason Anderson of the Sacramento Bee reported earlier in the day that Leonard would not play Tuesday because it was "the first leg of a back-to-back with a big game against the Pacers tomorrow." It's certainly uncommon for a player to be rested for three straight games, but the Raps clearly want to do whatever it takes to keep Kawhi happy, in hopes he will re-sign with Toronto this summer. Norman Powell and C.J. Miles will again see extra minutes off the bench.
Jan 22 - 1:33 PM

Coach David Fizdale said that Luke Kornet (ankle) is going to miss "a couple of weeks."

The Knicks announced Tuesday that Kornet had an MRI on his left ankle which confirmed a sprain with a bone bruise. Kornet, who is in a walking boot, will begin rehab immediately and will be re-evaluated over the weekend. Prior to Monday's game vs. OKC, coach David Fizdale announced that Enes Kanter would be the team's third-string center. However, on Tuesday, Fizdale said that he is "leaning towards" starting Kanter at center with Kornet out of action.
Jan 22 - 1:10 PM

Deandre Ayton (ankle) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves.

This is not surprising, as Ayton was considered doubtful as of yesterday. It will be the second straight game on the shelf for Ayton, who initially injured his ankle late in Saturday's loss to the Hornets. Richaun Holmes (right foot sprain) is also unlikely to play Tuesday. Dragan Bender will draw another start. Bender tallied 12 points on 4-of-10 shots with ten rebounds, two assists and a block on Sunday.
Jan 22 - 1:02 PM

Aaron Gordon (sore lower back) was able to practice on Tuesday and said that he felt "markedly better" and that he would play Wednesday vs. the Nets as long as he didn't have any setbacks.

Good news for Gordon owners, as it appears Gordon is good to go for Wednesday, after missing two straight contests for Orlando. We'll await confirmation after Wednesday's shootaround that Gordon is still on track return to game action. Jonathon Simmons had been starting in place of Gordon, but will be bumped back to the bench.

Hawks GM Travis Schlenk said on Tuesday that Atlanta might get Kent Bazemore (ankle) back "in a couple of weeks."

Bazemore was able to do some individual shooting drills by himself on Tuesday, but is still a ways away from being cleared for game action. The only incentive the rebuilding Hawks might have to rush him back into the lineup would be to show he's healthy in order to trade him before the February 7th trade deadline. DeAndre Bembry, Kevin Huerter (neck) and Taurean Prince will continue to soak up extra playing time with Bazemore sidelined.
Jan 22 - 12:43 PM

Coach Doc Rivers said that Lou Williams (right hamstring) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks.

Lou Will has missed each of the Clippers previous two contests but is on track to suit up Tuesday night, as coach Rivers told reporters that Williams "looked good" in a 2-on-2 drill Monday vs. the assistant coaches. L.A. can certainly use Williams offensive contributions, as they will be without Danilo Gallinari (back) once again. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Patrick Beverley will see their minutes scaled back with Lou Will returning to action.
Jan 22 - 12:08 PM

Coach Luke Walton said that he thinks Rajon Rondo (hand) will play Thursday vs. Minnesota barring any setbacks, but that he has not seen LeBron James (groin) do any contact yet, so is less confident he’ll be ready for Thursday.

LeBron is heading in the right direction, as he was able to go through some "5-on-5 non-contact work" on Sunday. However, the Lakers want to make sure he is as close to 100% as possible before clearing him to return to game action. We should have an update on his status after practice on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Jan 22 - 9:52 AM

Luke Walton says he thinks Rajon Rondo (hand) will play Thursday vs. Minnesota as long as he doesn’t have any setbacks.

It was initially predicted Rondo would miss 4-5 weeks when he went down at the end of December, but he's well ahead of schedule. With Lonzo Ball (ankle) sidelined for the next 4-6 weeks, Rondo will likely see all the minutes he can handle at point guard once he gets up to speed and is in full game shape. Brandon Ingram will shift back to the wing. Over his first seven games with the Lakers, Rondo was averaging 11.9 points, 6.6 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 1.3 steals. If he still on the wire, he's worth grabbing in most fantasy leagues.
Jan 22 - 9:39 AM

Donovan Mitchell shot 12-of-28 from the field and 10-of-12 from the foul line Monday vs. the Trail Blazers, accounting for a game-high 34 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

After getting off to a hot start Monday, scoring nine points on 4-of-5 shooting in the first quarter, Mitchell went quiet before flipping the switch in the fourth quarter. During one stretch of action in the final stanza the second-year guard scored all 14 of Utah’s points, keeping the Jazz within striking distance in a game the team would ultimately lose. Over the last five games Mitchell is averaging 30.0 points, 4.6 assists and 4.4 rebounds per with shooting splits of 46.4/28.9/84.1. The return of Ricky Rubio (hamstring) is likely to impact Mitchell's workload eventually, but not for now as the veteran point guard is on a minutes restriction.
