Terrence Jones participated in shootaround, and he will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's gam vs. the Mavericks.

Jan 28 - 12:06 PM

Shelvin Mack (calf) will not play on Wednesday against the Nets, but he did say that he would be back soon.

His return will provide Atlanta with some additional depth to their backcourt, but Mack's role isn't large enough to warrant attention in most leagues. Dennis Schroder will continue to see a small bump in minutes until Mack returns.
Jan 28 - 12:02 PM

The Nets released a statement on Wednesday saying that Mirza Teletovic (lungs) will make a full recovery.

He obviously won't play again this season, but this is fantastic news and hopefully this means we will see him back out on the court soon. Teletovic is flying home to New York on Wednesday, and we will continue to track his progress every step of the way. Expect Cory Jefferson, Bojan Bogdanovic and Brook Lopez to see some extra minutes for the foreseeable future.

Jrue Holiday (leg) said that he has no specific timetable for his return, and he remains out indefinitely.

After he missed half of last season with a similar injury, the Pelicans will likely proceed with extreme caution. Holiday should still be stashed in all leagues in the hope that he can return soon, but this report is a little troubling. In the meantime, Tyreke Evans will continue to run the point for New Orleans, while Eric Gordon will handle the ball more as well.
Jan 28 - 11:50 AM

Jannero Pargo (back) will not be active against the Spurs on Wednesday as expected.

With Kemba Walker (knee) looking at some serious time on the sidelines, it will be up to Brian Roberts and Gary Neal to run the point for Charlotte. While Pargo is expected to be re-evaluated next week, he can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Jan 28 - 11:48 AM

Marvin Williams (concussion/ broken nose) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

It's still unknown if he has passed the NBA's concussion protocol, but we still don't think Williams ends up playing in this one. If he does end up missing any time, Coach Steve Clifford hinted that rookie Noah Vonleh would get some run, but only owners in deeper leagues should concern themselves over this situation.
Jan 28 - 11:43 AM

Marco Belinelli (groin) remains out for Wednesday's game vs. Charlotte.

This will be his tenth straight game on the sidelines, and it's clear that the Spurs likely won't bring him back until he is 100 percent. Belinelli should be dropped in most leagues, while players like Patty Mills, Manu Ginobili and Cory Joseph will pick up extra minutes in the short-term.
Jan 28 - 11:36 AM

Tyreke Evans (illness) is considered probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

He has take over the starting point guard role in the absence of Jrue Holday (leg), so the Pelicans would be in serious trouble If Evans missed this game. Even though Evans will likely end up playing, owners should check back before tip-off just to be safe. Should he miss any time, Nate Wolters and Jimmer Fredette would see an uptick in minutes at point guard, but still wouldn't be ideal options outside of deeper leagues.
