Jarrod Uthoff Headshot

Uthoff was assigned to the D-League on Saturday, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Uthoff recently inked a second 10-day deal with the Mavs, but he's yet to make much of an impact at the NBA level, totaling just five minutes in two appearances. The Iowa product will be available for the Texas Legends on Saturday as they take on the Austin Spurs.
12:49 pm (EST)
Manny Harris Headshot

Harris was assigned to the D-League on Saturday, Earl Sneed of Mavs.com reports.

Both Harris and Jarrod Uthoff were assigned to the Texas Legends, and the pair will be available Saturday night against Austin. The former Michigan standout has appeared in four games since signing with the Mavs earlier in the month, but he's played more than four minutes in only one of those contests.

Lance Thomas Headshot

Thomas (hip) will not play Saturday against the Spurs, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

A sore right hip will keep Thomas out for the second straight game after he was held out of action Thursday versus Portland. In Thomas' absence, expect Mindaugas Kuzminskas, who started Thursday, to again see an increase in playing time. Thomas' next chance to play will come Monday against Detroit.

Lance Thomas Headshot

Thomas (hip) will not play in Saturday's game against the Spurs, Al Iannazzone of News Day Sports reports.

Thomas is nursing a hip injury that will now cause him to miss his second consecutive game. He had started three of the previous four games prior to the injury, and figures to continue being in line for relatively healthy minutes should he recover from this injury in a timely manor. Expect Kyle O'Quinn to see a boost in minutes off the bench with Thomas sidelined Saturday.
12:28 pm (EST)
John Henson Headshot

Henson (thumb) is expected to miss roughly a week due to a sprained left thumb, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

Henson sustained the injury during Tuesday's win over the Trail Blazers, and he's already missed the team's last two games. In accordance with the one-week timetable, Henson will likely miss at least four more contests, with the Bucks slated to play Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. In Henson's absence, expect Greg Monroe and Spencer Hawes to each pick up some extra minutes off the bench.

Lance Thomas Headshot

Thomas (hip) is listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Spurs.

Thomas missed Thursday's loss to the Trail Blazers while nursing a hip injury, and seems to be trending toward a game-time decision Saturday. He had started three of the previous for games prior to Thursday's loss, and figures to be in line for another healthy workload should he play Saturday. Look for Kyle O'Quinn to see heavier minutes off the bench providing depth at power forward should Thomas sit out.
11:53 am (EST)
Derrick Rose Headshot

Rose (foot) is considered questionable to play Saturday against the Spurs, Tommy Beer of Basketball Insiders reports.

Rose is still battling soreness in his foot stemming from an injury sustained during Wednesday's game against the Jazz. The ailment kept him out of action Thursday versus Portland, and it appears the Knicks will wait until closer to tip-off Saturday to make a decision on the point guard's status. If he's ultimately held out, expect Ron Baker to make another start in his place.
11:48 am (EST)
Carmelo Anthony Headshot

Anthony (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Spurs, NBA.com reports.

Anthony was sidelined for Thursday's loss to the Trail Blazers, and his status Saturday appears up in the air. It is unclear when the veteran small forward sustained the injury, but it is likely due to the wear and tear of the season. Look for Mindaugas Kuzminskas to draw another spot start should Anthony be forced to sit out again, while Justin Holliday could see an increased role providing depth off the bench.
11:45 am (EST)
LeBron James Headshot

James suffered a scratched cornea in Friday's win over the Hornets, Cleveland.com reports.

James noticeably could not keep his eye open during a postgame interview session, and noted his vision was blurry. The injury occurred after getting poked in the eye during a drive to the basket late in the third quarter. The veteran forward was able to return to the game, but his status for Saturday's tilt versus the Wizards appears up in the air. James indicated that if he sits out it will not be due to rest, but rather because he is "banged up." Look for Richard Jefferson and Iman Shumpert to see increased roles covering the small forward responsibilities should James ultimately sit out Saturday.
10:43 am (EST)
Jordan Clarkson Headshot

Clarkson submitted 35 points (13-20 FG, 8-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists and two rebounds across 47 minutes in a 130-119 overtime win over the Timberwolves on Friday.

The points and three-pointers were both career highs for Clarkson, who has established himself as the Lakers' top offensive weapon in the second half of the season. In his 14 appearances since the All-Star break, Clarkson is averaging 19.4 points per game, a nearly six-point jump from his scoring average prior to the break.
