After starting the first four games of the season, Bogut will miss Friday's game against the Blazers for an undisclosed personal issue. Dwight Powell will draw the start at center for the Mavericks.
Thabo Sefolosha Headshot

Sefolosha (groin) has been ruled out of Tuesday's contest against the Suns, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Added 1:57 pm (EST)
Sefolosha will be missing his second consecutive game due to his strained right groin. The injury isn't through the be very serious but it could sideline him for a few days more. His status for Wednesday's game against the 76ers is up in the air currently. Look for Taurean Prince, who started in Sefolosha's place on Sunday, to see extra time once again.
Paul Millsap Headshot

Millsap (knee) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Suns, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Added 1:54 pm (EST)
While an MRI over the weekend came back clean, Millsap is still battling discomfort in his left knee and will miss a sixth consecutive game Tuesday. That means Ersan Ilyasova will be in line for another start at power forward, while rookie Taurean Prince will likely get the nod at small forward in place of Kent Bazemore (knee), who's also been ruled out. Atlanta heads into Tuesday's in desperate need of a win after dropping its previous seven games.
Kent Bazemore Headshot

Bazemore (knee) could return for Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Added 1:50 pm (EST)
The Hawks have formally ruled Bazemore out of Tuesday's game against Phoenix, and this latest news would seem to imply that Wednesday's matchup with the Sixers is the earliest Bazemore could return. The 27-year-old has missed the last four games with a bone bruise on his knee, and he's apparently still battling significant discomfort. With Paul Millsap (knee) also dealing with an injury, the Hawks have been shorthanded up front and have dropped their last seven contests. So long as Bazemore is sidelined, expect rookie Taurean Prince, who played 38 minutes Sunday against Brooklyn, to continue to see an increased role.
James Harden Headshot

Harden admitted he's been battling a sore wrist, but he doesn't expect to miss any time, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Added 1:43 pm (EST)
Harden went for 22 points, 12 assists and five rebounds in Sunday's win over the Thunder, and he said Monday that he'll go through a full practice and will not be limited for Tuesday's matchup with the Warriors. Obviously, that's great news for Harden's fantasy owners, though with the Rockets already locked into the postseason, the team may look to limit his workload down the stretch, particularly once they clinch the No. 3 seed out West, which figures to happen soon, considering Houston trails second-place San Antonio by 5.5 games and leads fourth-place Utah by seven games with just nine regular season contests remaining.
Gordon Hayward Headshot

Hayward (quadriceps) did not participate in shootaround and remains questionable for Monday's game against the Pelicans, Jody Genessy of Deseret News reports.

Added 1:02 pm (EST)
Hayward's injury is just a bruise, so it's possible that the team is remaining cautious with their start player by keeping him out of shootaround, but it looks as if there is still a possibility he is inactive Monday night. Hayward will likely go through pregame warmups before a final decision is made, but in the event that he is ruled out, look for either Joe Johnson or Joe Ingles to enter the starting lineup at small forward and for both to see extended minutes against the Pelicans.
Al Jefferson Headshot

Head coach Nate McMillan said Jefferson (ankle) is out for at least "a few days," Pacers radio announcer Pat Boylan reports.

Added 12:54 pm (EST)
The Pacers are set to play a back-to-back set Tuesday and Wednesday, and it appears likely that Jefferson will miss both of those games given that he is still in a walking boot and on crutches. The next most realistic opportunity for him to return would be Friday in Toronto, but for however long Jefferson is out for, look for both Rakeem Christmas and Kevin Seraphin to see extended time in the frontcourt off the bench.
Reggie Bullock Headshot

Bullock suffered from a right foot sprain and has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Knicks, Aaron McMann of reports.

Added 11:53 am (EST)
It's unclear when exactly Bullock suffered from the injury, but it appears as though it is serious enough to hold him out for at least Monday's contest. This is yet another ailment for the former North Carolina standout in a season that was been plagued with injuries. His absence likely won't have a major impact on the team's rotation, but it could mean more minutes for Stanley Johnson off the bench. However, the team has typically elected to have starter Kentavious Caldwell-Pope play a heavier dose of minutes when Bullock is out.
Davis Bertans Headshot

Bertans was recalled from the Austin Spurs of the NBA D-League on Monday.

Added 11:23 am (EST)
Bertans was assigned for just one day for what was likely a practice with the D-League team, and will now be recalled for Monday's showdown with the Cavaliers at home. Bertans has played for a total of just seven minutes in the team's last three games, however, so it's unlikely he sees much of the floor Monday unless garbage time occurs.
Bryn Forbes Headshot

Forbes was recalled from the D-League's Austin Spurs on Monday.

Added 11:21 am (EST)
Forbes has seen an increase in minutes over the past few games for the Spurs, seeing double digit numbers in playing time during four of the past ten games for San Antonio. Forbes has proven to be a contender to provide backup in the point guard depth chart, especially with fellow point guard Dejounte Murray out with a groin injury.
Iman Shumpert Headshot

Shumpert (knee) is questionable to participate in Monday's tilt against the Spurs, Maria Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Added 11:13 am (EST)
Shumpert is dealing with soreness in his right knee, which caused him to be sidelined from Saturday's matchup against the Wizards. If Shumpert is out again, J.R. Smith could pick up another start while Kyle Korver could also see boost in minutes.
