Ty Lawson Headshot

Ty Lawson (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game.

Lawson did little in 20 minutes of court time before exiting Monday's game due to an ankle injury. He seems to have avoided a significant injury and should be back in the lineup Wednesday. Lawson had been playing well prior to Monday, averaging 14.4 points and 4.2 assists across the previous five games.

George Hill Headshot

George Hill (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game at Dallas.

The schedule could work out well for the Jazz in regards to Hill's health status, as they will not be back on the court until Friday night. Hill exited in the late stages of Monday's game and labeled as questionable for Friday. Following a three-game absence earlier this month, the veteran guard has been outstanding over the past six games, averaging 16.7 points, 4.5 assists and 4.0 rebounds.

Jared Dudley Headshot

Jared Dudley (illness) remains day-to-day.

Dudley is apparently dealing with an illness right now, but that is not likely effecting his potential playing time anyway. The veteran swingman has played in just one game this month, totaling just over five minutes.

Dwight Howard Headshot

Dwight Howard (rest) is probable for Wednesday's game.

Howard sat out Monday night's game, the second in a back-to-back for the Hawks. The veteran center was on the court for nearly 32 minutes on Sunday night and played in all seven games this month prior to Monday, averaging 12.4 points and 12.7 rebounds while 61.5 percent from the field. Howard should be back in the lineup at Detroit on Wednesday.

Chris Paul Headshot

X-Rays came back negative on Chris Paul's left thumb.

Paul sprained his thumb in Monday night's game and exited after playing less than 14 minutes. These X-ray results are obviously a positive development, and given that the Clippers are off until Thursday, the veteran point guard might have a chance to avoid missing any games due to the injury.

Kevin Love Headshot

Kevin Love (back) said he doesn't expect to miss any time.

Love was obviously ailing in Monday's game against the Warriors, as he played just 16 minutes and shot 1-of-6 from the field. The Cavaliers are off until Thursday night, so Love has a couple of days to rest up.

George Hill Headshot

George Hill suffered an ankle injury during Monday's game.

Hill has been a quality fantasy asset this season, well, when he's healthy that is. He's battled a few injuries this season, with his ankle being the latest ailment. Hill has scored 15 or more points in four of his last six games, while posting at least four rebounds or four assists in each of those games. Consider him day-to-day with this ankle injury.

Jerami Grant Headshot

Jerami Grant is starting for the Thunder on Monday in place of the injured Steven Adams.

Adams suffered a concussion yesterday and is unable to play in tonight's contest against the Clippers. Grant will get the start, but he's nothing more than a punt play on DFS. He will provide plenty of salary relief, but the price tag is justified, considering the fact that he's averaging just 6.1 points per game in over 21 minutes of action.

Kyle Korver Headshot

Kyle Korver is starting the second half in place of the injured Kevin Love (back).

Korver, a 3-ball specialist, will get the start for the injured Kevin Love. Golden State is up by over 30 on Cleveland, which means this is an excellent opportunity for Korver to get acquainted with his new squad. The newest acquisition will be an excellent source of three-pointers the rest of the season.
