Ryan Anderson Headshot

Ryan Anderson (illness) is doubtful to play in Tuesday's game.

Anderson has played solid for the Rockets and is currently their 3rd leading scorer. Sam Dekker, Montrezl Harrell, and Corey Brewer will all see extra minutes with Anderson out.

Clint Capela Headshot

Clint Capela will play in Tuesday's game against the Miami Heat.

This injury could not have come at a worse time for Capela, who was playing the best basketball of his career prior. The original timetable for the injury was 4-6 weeks but it looks like things have progressed faster than expected. "I've been doing pretty good in the workouts by myself, sprinting, dunking. It all felt good," Capela said. He is averaging 11.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks - all career-highs. If he is on your waiver wire, grab him now and thank us later.

Darrell Arthur Headshot

Darrell Arthur (knee) is questionable for Tuesday.

We still don't know whether Arthur will be able to play on Tuesday night after missing his second consecutive game due to left knee soreness on Monday. The man has missed a grand total of 10 games this season as a result of similar knee issues. "When we (practice) hard he goes hardest. And his knee has a hard time withstanding that pounding. So I almost have to try to protect him from himself at times," said Coach Malone. If Arthur is out on Tuesday, look for Faried to continue to log big minutes.

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.
3 hours ago
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.
4 hours ago
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.
