Draymond Green (foot, ankle) may return Monday against the Clippers, according to Marc Spears of ESPN.com.

Spears is pretty plugged in with the Warriors out west, so this sounds like a realistic target date. That means he won't be playing against the Nets on Saturday, and Jordan Bell should get another start. Bell should have some short-term value and gets a great matchup for that home game on Saturday while Kevon Looney, Damian Jones and Alfonzo McKinnie all benefit. Green's owners should just sit tight as the Warriors wait for him to get back to full health.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) and Shabazz Napier (hamstring) will be available to play on Wednesday against the Rockets.

This will be RHJ's first game in January following a seven-game absence, and it'll be interesting to see what his minutes look like tonight with Jared Dudley (hamstring) unavailable. Hollis-Jefferson hasn't been great this season, so this is more of a wait-and-see situation in standard settings. With both Napier and RHJ available, Treveon Graham's minutes will take a sizeable hit.

Mo Bamba (foot) will not play Wednesday night against the Pistons.

Coach Steve Clifford said that the rookie is getting closer. "He feels better," Clifford said. "He did everything this morning in shootaround and he’s gonna do more contact, and we’ll take it from there. He’s definitely closer to playing, but we don’t wanna rush him back b/c he feels better." With him out, Khem Birch will be the backup to Nikola Vucevic and could be worth a look as a stream for blocks.

Further tests revealed nothing more than a sprained left thumb for Wendell Carter Jr. and he is being listed as day-to-day.

There was some fear that Carter Jr. had fractured his thumb and that he would need surgery, but upon further evaluation, it was discovered that the ligament in his thumb is fully intact, so he shouldn't need to miss too much time here. For now, we'll be considering him doubtful for Thursday's game in Denver, and if he needs to sit that one out, there will be more minutes for Bobby Portis, Robin Lopez, Cristiano Felicio and Jabari Parker.

Jamal Crawford (knee) is listed as questionable for Thursday against the Raptors.

The Suns have some depth with Devin Booker back in action, so it's possible Crawford may not be in the rotation anyway. Coach Igor Kokoskov has said he wants to play De'Anthony Melton and Elie Okobo more, as well.

Aron Baynes (thumb) is available for Wednesday against the Raptors.

The Celtics finally get their backup center back for a big matchup. His return will bump Daniel Theis and Robert Williams down in the depth chart, but Baynes himself won't have much fantasy value while Al Horford is healthy.
Jan 16 - 5:23 PM

LeBron James (groin) has been cleared to return to practice next week.

According to the team, he will "progress towards a return to game play thereafter." If you missed it, he is not going to travel for the upcoming two games, so it will be at least 13 games on the sidelines. James may have a shot to make his return to the lineup this month, but he does not have a target date yet. Basically the entire rotation has benefitted with more usage, play-making chances and minutes while LeBron has been out.

Gary Harris (left hamstring tightness) is questionable to play against the Bulls on Thursday.

Coach Mike Malone has sounded optimistic at times on Harris, but we can't put much stock in his quotes based on the lack of evidence behind it. Malone said recently it’s taking longer than he thought it would for Harris to return, but the team doesn't want to risk him aggravating it again. If he's out, Malik Beasley and Monte Morris will benefit with more playing time.
Jan 16 - 4:07 PM

Damian Lillard (right hand strain) is questionable to play on Wednesday against the Cavs.

While Lillard tends to push through his various ailments, the Blazers may want to play it safe here with a matchup against the worst team in the league. If he is forced to the sidelines, there will be more minutes for Seth Curry, Wade Baldwin and Nik Stauskas, while C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic would be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense. Check back closer to tip-off for official confirmation on his status.
Jan 16 - 2:53 PM

Rudy Gay (wrist) and Marco Belinelli (knee) will play on Wednesday against the Mavericks.

Both Gay and Belinelli looked good at shootaround, and with these guys back in the lineup, we'd expect fewer minutes for Jakob Poeltl, Dante Cunningham, Quincy Pondexter and Davis Bertans. Gay has missed the past five games, but there's been no word on a minutes limit, so owners should feel confident deploying him.
Jan 16 - 2:07 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (sore left hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

THJ has had a full four days to rest his hamstring injury, although traveling to London probably wasn't the easiest flight for him. We'll have a better idea on his status following Thursday's shootaround, but if he's out again, Damyean Dotson would be in line for another start with Emmanual Mudiay and Kevin Knox being tasked with the heavy lifting on offense.
Jan 16 - 1:56 PM

Mo Bamba (sore left foot) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Head coach Steve Clifford said on Tuesday that he wasn't expecting Bamba to play today, but it's worth noting that Bamba got in some post-practice work at shootaround. He's trending towards a game-time call, but if he's out again, Khem Birch should continue to see minutes in the teens operating as Nikola Vucevic's backup. Stay tuned.
