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.

Derrick Favors Headshot

Derrick Favors has been ruled out for Thursday's game.

Favors has missed the last 12 games with this knee injury and unfortunately for the Jazz, there is still no clear timetable on his return. He's still considered day-to-day, but it gets to a point where that designation gets frustrating. His next opportunity to return his on Saturday against the Kings, but chances are he won't play.

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.

George Hill Headshot

George Hill (toe) has been ruled out Thursday.

This marks the fourth straight game that Hill is missed, leaving the door open for extra time for backup guards like Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack. The same trend will likely continue with Hill out, meaning Exum gets the start but Mack gets more minutes.

Danilo Gallinari Headshot

Nuggets coach Michael Malone was ejected from Wednesday's game.

Malone was tossed from the game and he won't get to see the final results of this contest courtside. Well, it's not like he's missing much.

Raymond Felton Headshot

Raymond Felton will miss Wednesday's game and possibly more due to a family emergency.

Head coach Doc Rivers said Raymond Felton will likely miss a few games due to this family emergency. Hopefully everything is okay at home and Felton can return to the court soon.
