Donatas Motiejunas Headshot

Donatas Motiejunas has refused to report to the Rockets over a $6 million dollar difference in incentives.

Motiejunas played each of his first four seasons with the Rockets and is a restricted free agent but he doesn't want to return to Houston even though they matched an offer sheet given to him by the Nets. At this point, the Rockets can either keep waiting and hoping that Motiejunas comes around or cancel the offer sheet that they just matched but either way this situation doesn't seem like it will be resolved anytime soon. The 26-year-old played in just 37 games last season due to a back injury, averaging 6.2 points in just over 14 minutes played per game.

Kent Bazemore Headshot

Kent Bazemore had an MRI which showed no structural damage in his knee.

Bazemore suffered a knee injury earlier this week and had an MRI as a precaution but the MRI revealed no structural damage in his knee. Bazemore is expected to miss the next two games, including tonight's game, due to knee soreness but he will be available to play after that. The 27-year-old has been a key piece for the Hawks this season, starting 22 games and averaging 10.7 points in 27 minutes played per game.

Stephen Curry Headshot

Head coach Steve Kerr says Warriors will likely rest a couple players at some point on this road trip, but not Wednesday night.

The Warriors are set to start their five-game road trip tonight against the Clippers, and coach Kerr expects to rest a few of his players at some point in the next five games. The Warriors play the Jazz in the second night of a back-to-back tomorrow but the Jazz are one of the better teams they play on the road trip, so it wouldn't be surprising if they don't rest anyone tomorrow night. Most likely Kerr will choose the game against the underachieving Wolves or Pelicans to get some of his players a breather.

Aaron Harrison Headshot

Aaron Harrison was assigned to the D-League Wednesday.

Harrison, who was signed by the Hornets after he went undrafted out of Kentucky in 2015, has appeared in just four games for Charlotte so far this season. Harrison is averaging less than four minutes played per game, so it makes sense that he would be sent down to the D-League in order to get steady playing time, which should help him develop. The former Kentucky Wildcat spent most of last season in the D-League, so he's no stranger to the level of competition there.

Larry Nance Headshot

Larry Nance Jr. (knee) will play Wednesday.

Nance was available for the Lakers last game against the Jazz but did not get into the game. With the update that he will play on Wednesday fantasy owners should expect him to come off the bench and play around 20-25 minutes where he can rack up some points and rebounds.

Seth Curry Headshot

Seth Curry (knee) will not play Wednesday.

It will be the 4th straight game missed for the Mavs 6th man. Curry was averaging 10.3 points per game prior to the injury. Devin Harris will continue to see a slight uptick in minutes while Curry is out. However, he is not worth owning in fantasy. Harris has averaged just 4.3 points per game with Curry out.

Andrew Bogut Headshot

Andrew Bogut (knee) out 3-4 weeks.

Bogut suffered a hyperextended knee on Monday and had an MRI to confirm the extent on the injury Tuesday. With Bogut out of the lineup the Mavericks will likely be starting Salah Mejri at center with Dwight Powell also getting some run at the position.

Gary Harris Headshot

Gary Harris is questionable for Wednesday.

Harris has only played in five games this season, and none since November 12th. He is recovering from a foot injury. In the five games he has played he has scored 10.8 points per game.

Nikola Jokic Headshot

Nikola Jokic (wrist) is questionable for Wednesday.

Jokic has missed his last three games due to a sprained left wrist. On Monday Jokic said he hopes to be back as soon as he can catch a ball with his left hand. When he has played, he's averaged 9.4 points and 6.7 rebounds per game.

Marvin Williams Headshot

Marvin Williams (knee) will play Wednesday.

Williams has not played since November 25th. In his absence, Frank Kaminsky stepped up and played good minutes and has put in 12 points per game over his last 10. with Williams back in, expect Kaminsky's time to drop.
