Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol (left foot soreness) is not doing any contact or competitive work and is just shooting in place, according to coach Gregg Popovich.

Gasol has been out since early November and doesn't seem close to a return. "Seems like it's going to take awhile," Popovich said after Saturday's game against the Bulls. Jakob Poeltl will continue to see time in his absence, with Dante Cunningham and Davis Bertans also picking up some extra minutes.

Luke Kornet has stepped into the rotation in Mitchell Robinson's (ankle) absence.

Kornet has been back-and-forth between the Knicks and their G-League affiliate, but is finally getting a chance at consistent minutes with the big club. He and Robinson offer different things, with the biggest difference being Kornet's ability to shoot from deep. Robinson doesn't look to be out for an extended period of time, so Kornet, who closed over Enes Kanter on Friday, is better left on the waiver wire for now.

76ers ownership is torn on what to do with Markelle Fultz, says Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Pompey says that ownership isn't sure what to do because they don't want to look bad for giving up on Fultz too soon, but they also don't want to trade him for nothing. He says that the team won't part with him unless they can get a first round pick in the deal. It's hard to predict what will happen between now and the trade deadline, but it seems destined for the team and Fultz to part ways, which might be best for both.

Robert Covington maintains that his right knee is fine and coach Tom Thibodeau agrees.

"[Covington]’s fine in terms of health but when you’re out for five days you’re out of rhythm," Thibodeau said. "That’s where I think he is. We just have to let him work through it and get him going." After getting off to an outstanding start with his new team, RoCo has struggled since returning from a one-game absence due to knee soreness. Hopefully he really is fine and this doesn't linger on.

Treveon Graham (left hamstring) was assigned to the Nets' G-League affiliate on Saturday as he progresses towards a return to action.

"[Graham]’s practiced a little bit, but that one I don’t want to put a date on it yet," coach Kenny Atkinson. "That’s obviously good news, that he’s starting to participate in practice and in some game activities. But no timetable for him." It's good to hear that he's progressing, but it doesn't sound like he's close to a return just yet. The Nets have good depth, which will relegate Graham to the fringe of the rotation and keep him off the fantasy radar.

Rodions Kurucs has earned more playing time, according to coach Kenny Atkinson.

"The big question is can you do this long term, as the league gets to know [Kurucs] better?" Atkinson. "This is a small pocket of games, but my experience says I believe this will be a season-long thing where he’s getting minutes now." Kurucs started with Allen Crabbe (knee) out and performed well. The 20-year-old has been back-and-forth between the Nets and their G-League team, but has adapted quite well to the speed of the game. He'll likely start again on Sunday if Crabbe sits and is worth a flier in deeper leagues.

Brandon Goodwin has signed a two-way contract with the Denver Nuggets, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Goodwin was signed by the Nuggets with the injury hardship relief exception, but waived so they could sign Nick Young. He didn't play at all before being waived. Goodwin will spend most of his time in the G-League.

Avery Bradley scored ten points (4-of-9 FG) with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, one blocked shot and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes Saturday vs. the Thunder.

Bradley is by no means a prolific scorer, but with the absence of sixth man Lou Williams (hamstring) they'll need more production from the starting guard. While shooting 4-of-9 from the field is respectable, his six turnovers did neither he nor the Clippers any favors Saturday night. In the three games that Williams has missed, Bradley is averaging 8.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.7 three-pointers per game.
