Patty Mills Headshot

Patty Mills will start at PG Friday.

Added 11/04/16 1:53 pm (EST)   Source
With Tony Parker sidelined for the next week or so, Patty Mills will start at PG going forward. He should be a solid play in DFS until his salary catches up and if you're in need of a PG in seasonal, Mills is a decent stop gap.
Deron Williams Headshot

Williams is expected to sign with the Cavaliers once he clears waivers, Marc Stein of ESPN reports.

Added 3:05 pm (EST)
Williams was waived by the Mavericks on Thursday, and the expectation all along has been that the veteran will head to Cleveland, where he'll provide much-needed experience and depth at the point guard position. With Kyrie Irving solidified in a starting role, the Cavs likely envision Williams as a backup who can run the second unit and occasionally play off the ball. The 32-year-old is averaging 13.1 points and 6.9 assists in 29.3 minutes on the season, while shooting 34.8 percent from three on 4.5 attempts per game. Williams joining the Cavaliers is contingent on him passing through waivers unclaimed, which is expected to be the case, but it's unclear when, exactly, he'd make his Cavaliers debut.
Al Jefferson Headshot

Jefferson (mouth) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Heat.

Added 3:04 pm (EST)
The veteran big man sat out of Friday's win over the Grizzlies due to a dental issue, and is considered questionable Saturday as a result. Lavoy Allen and Kevin Seraphin figure to pick up some minutes providing depth n the frontcourt if Jefferson is ultimately unable to go, but a decision is unlikely to be made until closer to game-time.
Kevin Durant Headshot

Durant has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Nets due to left hand bruise, Anthony Slater of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Added 2:04 pm (EST)
The bruise on his non-shooting hand is apparently located on his pinkie finger. It is unclear when the injury was sustained, but it presumably occurred in Thursday's win over the Clippers. While the severity of the issue is unknown, it is likely that the Warriors are exercising caution with their star small forward in order to avoid a potential lingering issue. The absence will mark Durant's first of the season. Expect Andre Iguodala to pick up a majority of the work at small forward in his place, while Patrick McCaw and Ian Clark could see some increased minutes as well. Consider Durant day-to-day going forward.
Kenneth Faried Headshot

Faried (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Grizzlies, Harrison Wind of BSNDevnver.com reports.

Added 1:55 pm (EST)
Faried injured his back in Friday's game against the nets after enduring an awkward fall that ultimately led to an early exit from the contest. He totaled nine point (3-4 FG, 3-4 FT) and six rebounds across 16 minutes prior to exiting. Darrell Arthur and Juan Hernangomez figure to see some extra time providing depth at power forward if Faried is unable to go, but a decision is unlikely to be made until closer to game-time.
Michael Carter-Williams Headshot

Carter-Williams (knee) will not play in Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Bulls' radio announcer Chuck Swirsky reports.

Added 1:14 pm (EST)
Carter-Williams only played eight minutes in Friday's win over the Suns, and presumably sustained the injury in the contest. The severity of the issue is unknown at this time, but his next chance to return will be Tuesday versus Nuggets. It is unclear at this point if newly acquired Cameron Payne will be active for the contest, but he, Jerian Grant, and Rajon Rondo figure to split the point guard minutes.
LeBron James Headshot

James is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bulls due to an illness, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.

Added 1:05 pm (EST)
The severity of the illness is unknown at this time, and it's likely that a decision on James' status won't be made until later in the evening. In the event that James, who recorded an 18-point, 15-assist, 13-rebound triple-double Thursday against New York, doesn't play, Kyrie Irving would handle more of the playmaking duties, while Derrick Williams and Richard Jefferson would be in line for increased minutes.
E'Twaun Moore Headshot

Moore (personal) will not play Saturday against the Mavericks, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports.

Added 12:24 pm (EST)
Moore is away from the team due to a personal issue, so the Pelicans will be forced to replace him in the lineup at shooting guard. Following the DeMarcus Cousins trade, the Pelicans are relatively light on backcourt depth, so Hollis Thompson, who signed a 10-day deal Friday, may be the top candidate to get the start. Consider Moore questionable to play Sunday against the Thunder in Oklahoma City.
Kyle Lowry Headshot

Lowry is out indefinitely while he deals with a sore wrist, Doug Smith of The Star reports.

Added 11:57 am (EST)
The All Star point guard sustained the injury Feb. 15 against the Hornets. He subsequently decided to disregard the discomfort and take part in the All Star weekend festivities. It appears he under estimated the injury, and the Raptors are now labeling him as out indefinitely. There is no timetable for a return, but expect the team to exercise caution with their star guard in order to avoid a lingering issue heading into the home stretch of the regular season. Lowry is in the midst of a career season, averaging 22.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 6.9 assists per game. Cory Joseph started in his place Friday, and figures to continue picking up the bulk of the work at point guard while Lowry is sidelined.
Patrick Beverley Headshot

Beverley is listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Timberwolves due to left groin tightness, Calvin Watkins of ESPN reports.

Added 11:43 am (EST)
Beverley was dealing with a minor groin strain prior to the All Star break, and it appears the issue is still affecting him. He played 30 minutes in Thursday's win over the Pelicans, and presumably aggravated the injury in the contest. Eric Gordon and the newly acquired Lou Williams figure to see relatively heavy workloads if Beverley is unable to go. A final decision on his status is unlikely to be made until closer to game-time.
Dwyane Wade Headshot

Wade (wrists) submitted 23 points (8-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks across 33 minutes in a 128-121 overtime victory over the Suns on Friday.

Added 11:32 am (EST)
Wade had missed the Bulls' final three games before the All-Star break while contending with soreness in both of his wrists, but the veteran shooting guard looked at full strength in his return to action Friday. He was instrumental in leading his team to an 11-point fourth-quarter comeback, pouring in 14 of his team-high scoring haul over the game's final 15 minutes. Coach Fred Hoiberg said prior to Friday's game that Wade would suit up in both halves of the Bulls' back-to-back set, so expect to see the 35-year-old back out there for a normal workload Saturday against the Cavaliers.
