Vince Carter Headshot

Vince Carter remains questionable for Thursday.

This is a positive development as the veteran has been ruled out the day before each game. However, Carter's fantasy upside is limited so owners can look elsewhere.

Seth Curry Headshot

Seth Curry remains without a timetable to return.

The positive is that Curry has been working out so he could be in line for a return possibly this weekend. Jonathan Gibson and Justin Anderson will receive more minutes while Curry is out, but they don't have much upside.

George Hill Headshot

George Hill will not play Thursday.

This has been a frustrating season for the guard as Hill is having a strong season by averaging 20 points, but has been plagued by many ailments that has kept him sidelined. Fantasy owners need to hold on to Hill, but it would be nice if he can stay healthy for a long stretch of time.

Darrell Arthur Headshot

Darrell Arthur started the second half of Wednesday's game in place of Kenneth Faried.

Faried was benched due to a coaches decision after the Nuggets appeared sluggish in the first half. There isn't much upside with Arthur or Faried so both can be considered deep options at this point.

Gary Harris Headshot

Gary Harris could return in about a week.

Harris is expected to resume practicing here pretty soon, signifying that he is slightly ahead of schedule. He has missed the team's last 11 games with a sprained foot, but it seems to be that he could return in the next week to 10 days. His return will cut into some of Will Barton's playing time.

J.R. Smith Headshot

J.R. Smith (knee) is questionable for Friday's game.

Smith hyper-extended his left knee, but an MRI determined no additional damage to his knee. If he is going to miss Friday's game, DeAndre Liggins will likely get another start.

Donatas Motiejunas Headshot

Donatas Motiejunas had until Wednesday night for his physical with the Rockets and never showed.

At this point, Houston should just let him go. There was a difference in the money between the Rockets and the Nets, and that is the reported reason as to why he won't show up. This is definitely something to watch moving forward, because Motiejunas is a quality player who has averaged 7.8 points and 4.0 rebounds per game over his career.

Nikola Jokic Headshot

Nuggets coach Mike Malone could make changers to the starting lineup Thursday.

The Nuggets battled back tonight, but ultimately still lost. Also the fact that it was to the Brooklyn Nets makes it even worse. Wilson Chandler and Will Barton have been the only real bright spots on this team to date.

Rodney McGruder Headshot

Rodney McGruder said his ankle is fine and he will play Friday.

McGruder logged 31 minutes tonight, and played pretty well. He said he's going to be fine moving forward and that he'll be out there on Friday night. With that in mind, his ankle injury can't be that serious.

Rodney Hood Headshot

Rodney Hood (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game.

Hood left the team's last game with a sore hamstring and the fact that he's already ruled out for tomorrow's contest is far from reassuring. It still seems that it is just soreness, which is good, considering that he could have pulled something. Since he's out for tomorrow, his next opportunity to return to the court will be on Saturday.
