Travis Wear (sore lower back) missed Saturday's game and remains day-to-day.

Wear missed his third consecutive game on Saturday as he continues to battle a back injury. The Knicks are a nightmare and even if he were healthy, there is no guarantee that he'd receive ample playing time for fantasy owners. Analysis: David Kerr

Al Jefferson was bothered by his sore knee on Saturday. He played just 18 minutes and scored two points.

Jefferson was questionable headed into Saturday's game, so this doesn't come as much of a surprise. Given Jefferson's struggles on Saturday night, it seems possible that he will miss a few upcoming games. While he had a down game on Saturday, he did post a double-double in his previous two games, so if he's able to play through the pain, he will continue to be a valuable commodity. Analysis: David Kerr

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau is unsure if Derrick Rose (knee) will be cleared for full contact Monday.

Rose continues to battle back from a torn meniscus and the Bulls are hoping he will be able to return by the end of the regular season. Chicago only has eight games left on their slate, so even if Rose doesn't make it back by then, he should be ready by the first round of the playoffs. At this point in time, the Bulls would be the three seed and face Milwaukee in the first round of the playoffs. Analysis: David Kerr

Danilo Gallinari (rest) will not play Saturday against the Trail Blazers.

The Nuggets are out of playoff contention and Gallinari could use a day off, so the team is using Saturday night as an opportunity to get him some rest. Gallinari is just three games removed from dropping 40 points, so he clearly has a ton of fantasy value. Expect him back in the lineup on Wednesday against the Jazz. Analysis: David Kerr

Update: Brandon Rush has returned to the game.

This is updating an early report that Rush left Saturday's game due to an eye contusion. Rush rarely sees court time, so even though he has returned, his fantasy value is nonexistent. Analysis: David Kerr

Steven Adams is headed to the locker room with an apparent injury.

No word as to why is ailing Adams, but we should have an update soon. Adams' status for the remainder of Saturday's game is currently unknown. Analysis: David Kerr

J.J. Barea (sprained ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against Indiana.

Barea has missed the Mavericks' last three games, but is hoping to return on Sunday. He has done well in a reserve role for Dallas and should be able to reach his usual 17 minutes if he's active. Analysis: David Kerr

Brandon Rush suffered a right eye contusion and his return is questionable.

Rush is only averaging 7.9 minutes over 29 games this season, so this injury has zero fantasy impact. Saturday's game against the Bucks only had a five point spread, so it is unlikely that Rush would have seen very many minutes anyway. Analysis: David Kerr

J.J. Hickson is in the Nuggets starting lineup on Saturday.

Hickson should see an increase in minutes with the start, and though he isn't primed for a huge game, he should offer modest production in fantasy. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Trevor Booker is starting for Derrick Favors on Saturday.

With Favors out due to a back injury, Booker will get the start on Saturday. He's a sneaky but solid play in deeper fantasy leagues. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Derrick Favors (back) has been ruled out for Saturday's game.

Favors is dealing with a pretty bad back injury, and while he was hoping to play on Saturday, it's very doubtful that he is able to go. Trevor Booker gets a nice opportunity with Favors out, and is a solid play in fantasy. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Derrick Favors will get some treatment on his injured back before a decision is made on his availability for Saturday. He didn't sound very hopeful, though.

Favors is dealing with a pretty bad back injury, and while he was hoping to play on Saturday, it's very doubtful that he is able to go. Trevor Booker would get a nice opportunity if Favors is out, and is a solid play in fantasy. Analysis: Ben Diamond
