Added 11/04/16 8:42 pm (EST)   Source
There have been reports recently that Harden did not enjoy playing with Howard over the past couple of years in Houston. With the Rockets getting set to make a stop in Atlanta on Saturday night, the two will meet on the court as opponents.
James Michael McAdoo Headshot

McAdoo, who was forced from Tuesday's game against the Rockets with a laceration to his head, is currently receiving stitches and will be evaluated for a concussion, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

Added 8:51 pm (EST)
Rockets' forward Trevor Ariza appeared to accidentally land on McAdoo after a collision, which opened a laceration to his head. McAdoo is currently receiving stitches and will be evaluated for a concussion, so it doesn't seem likely he'll be able to return to Tuesday's game. Look for an additional update to be provided in the near future, which should clarify whether or not he could miss time with any concussion-like symptoms.
Fred VanVleet Headshot

VanVleet was recalled Tuesday from the D-League's Raptors 905.

Added 8:05 pm (EST)
VanVleet has logged a total of seven minutes over the Raptors' last three games, so he recently spent time in the D-League to aid in his development and get him the reps he wasn't seeing with the big club. He'll rejoin the Raptors after being recalled Tuesday, but even with Kyle Lowry (wrist) still out, Cory Joseph and Delon Wright have seen the majority of the minutes at point guard, which keeps VanVleet out of the rotation on most nights.
Reggie Bullock Headshot

Bullock (foot) will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Heat, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.

Added 7:49 pm (EST)
Bullock was held out of Monday's game against the Knicks because of a right foot sprain and it appears he's still dealing with enough discomfort to be sidelined a second consecutive contest. He'll likely need to put in a full practice in order to be cleared ahead of Thursday's tilt with the Nets, so look for an updated status later this week. Stanley Johnson could pick up some extra minutes on the wing in Bullock's absence.
Leandro Barbosa Headshot

Barbosa (hamstring) will sit out Tuesday's matchup with the Hawks, Mike Conti of Sports Radio 92.9 The Game reports.

Added 7:35 pm (EST)
Barbosa continues to deal with a lingering hamstring injury, which will force him to sit out a second straight game. That leaves the Suns extremely short-handed in the backcourt, with the likes of Eric Bledsoe (knee) and Brandon Knight (back) being shut down for the season, Devin Booker (ankle) sitting out with an ankle injury and Ronnie Price still questionable with a lower leg injury. That should mean a heavy workload for guys like Tyler Ulis and T.J. Warren as starters, while Jared Dudley could have to play out of position in the backcourt at times.
Derrick Jones Headshot

Jones will start at shooting guard in Tuesday's game against the Hawks, Mike Conti of the Hawks Radio Network reports.

Added 7:30 pm (EST)
With Devin Booker out with an ankle injury, Jones will get the start at shooting guard in Tuesday's contest. While Jones has become a big part of the team's rotation as of late, playing at least 20 minutes four of his last five games, he still hasn't had great production. So while the start could again open up an opportunity for Jones to get extended run against Atlanta, he still is not viewed a reliable fantasy option.
Tobias Harris Headshot

Harris will move to the bench for Tuesday's game against the Heat, Pistons radio play-by-play announcer Mark Champion reports.

Added 7:27 pm (EST)
Harris has taken over as the full time starter in recent weeks, but it appears coach Stan Van Gundy will switch things up once again Tuesday. Jon Leuer will instead move into the starting lineup at power forward, which leaves Harris in a bench role, although Harris shouldn't necessarily expect a huge drop in playing time despite the demotion. Look for Harris tol hover in the upper 20's or low 30's for minutes.
Jon Leuer Headshot

Leuer will get the start at power forward for Tuesday's matchup against the Heat, Pistons' radio announcer Mark Champion reports.

Added 7:26 pm (EST)
After starting 28 of 29 games, Leuer has played a reserve role for nine of the previous ten contests. However, coach Stan Van Gundy appears to see favorable matchup for Leuer against the Heat, as he has opted to start him over Tobias Harris. It is unclear if this will be a one time switch or a permanent change to the starting lineup. Thus, the situation will need to be monitored going forward.
Nene Hilario Headshot

Hilario is expected to play in the Rockets' next two games, before being rested for Friday's matchup with the Warriors, Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com reports.

Added 6:43 pm (EST)
With Montrezl Harrell out Tuesday, Hilario should get the majority of the minutes behind Clint Capela at center. However, later this week, with the Rockets heading into a back-to-back set on Thursday and Friday, Hilario will then get the night off in that second game to give the veteran some extra rest. Harrell should be back in the lineup at that point in time and would likely see the biggest increase in playing time. There should be confirmation later this week regarding Hilario's status.
Montrezl Harrell Headshot

Harrell will not play in Tuesday's game against the Warriors due to his girlfriend having a baby, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.

Added 6:34 pm (EST)
There has been no word as to whether Harrell will return when the team travels to Portland on Thursday, but the former Louisville standout has found himself out of the rotation for majority of March anyway, so his absence shouldn't have much of an impact on the team's rotation.
Sean Kilpatrick Headshot

Kilpatrick (hamstring) will be active and available to play in Tuesday's game against the 76ers, Anthony Puccio of SBNation reports.

Added 6:31 pm (EST)
Coach Kenny Atkinson mentioned that he's going to try and get Kilpatrick some minutes, so it doesn't sound like he'll be playing on a full workload and it may be wise to avoid him for the time being considering the potential restrictions. That said, his return should still mean a few less minutes for the likes of Randy Foye, Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie.
