McCaw, a second-round pick (38th) in this year's draft, played a combined 19 minutes off the Warriors' bench over the first two games of the season, but he has been on the bench with a sprained ankle ever since. McCaw will miss his fourth straight game Friday night.
Derrick Williams Headshot

Williams' 10-day contract with the Cavaliers expired, and the team is yet to make a decision on his future, Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Added Yesterday 10:53 pm (EST)
Cleveland opted not to sign Williams to a second 10-day deal, but the team is keeping the forward on its radar, and whether he returns to Cleveland will likely be determined by what the Cavs do -- or don't do -- before Thursday's trade deadline. All indications are that the Cavs have been impressed by Williams, who's averaged 9.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in four games, but they want to keep a roster spot available in the event of a trade. If the Cavaliers still have an opening after the deadline passes, Williams would likely be re-signed, assuming another team doesn't scoop him up in the meantime. "We hope that this is a long-term thing," LeBron James said after Williams initially signed. "Obviously, we know that he's on a 10-day contract, but we believe it's going to be long term."
Garrett Temple Headshot

Temple (hamstring) remains without a clear return date, James Ham of csnbayarea.com reports.

Added Yesterday 9:56 pm (EST)
Temple was set to miss two-to-three weeks after suffering a partial hamstring tear on Feb. 1, which would theoretically put him near a return. However, the Kings are opting to remain cautious with the wing at the moment. With the addition of Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, and Langston Galloway over the All Star break it will be difficult for Temple to see anywhere near the 26.6 minutes per game he was seeing prior to the injury. It remains to be seen what the Kings opt to do with their new rotation, but some players are going to be left out. Given Temple's injury, he may have a hard time seeing much playing time when he returns.
Ty Lawson Headshot

Lawson (leg) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, James Ham of CSN California reports.

Added Yesterday 9:53 pm (EST)
Lawson missed the last four due to a leg strain, but it looks like the All-Star break provided the point guard ample time to recover. He'll likely return to the court Thursday against the Nuggets, serving as Darren Collison's primary backup at point guard with Garrett Temple (hamstring) still banged up and questionable to return.
Arron Afflalo Headshot

Afflalo (hamstring) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, James Ham of CSN California reports.

Added Yesterday 9:44 pm (EST)
Afflalo left last Wednesday's game against the Warriors with stiffness in his right hamstring, but the issue was never considered serious. The All-Star break has allowed Afflalo to seemingly make a full recovery, so he should be considered probable to play in Thursday's game against the Nuggets.
Manu Ginobili Headshot

Ginobili (ankle) is hopeful to play in Friday's game against the Clippers, Michael C. Wright of ESPN reports.

Added Yesterday 9:21 pm (EST)
Ginobili injured his ankle in the team's final game before the All Star break. The issue does not appear to be serious though, as he could be ready to play Friday. Should the veteran shooting guard experience any setbacks, look for Jonathon Simmons and Kyle Anderson to see slightly increased roles providing depth at shooting guard. However, if Ginobili is given the green light to play, expect him to take on his usual workload.
Darrell Arthur Headshot

Arthur (knee) took part in a full practice Tuesday and expects to be available for Thursday's game against the Kings, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

Added Yesterday 8:54 pm (EST)
Arthur missed the final two games prior the All-Star break with a knee injury, but the added time off has given him enough time to make a full recovery. He went through practice Tuesday and as long as he doesn't suffer from any residual soreness following the increase in activity, Arthur should be good to go for Thursday's matchup with the Kings.
Kenneth Faried Headshot

Faried (ankle) was able to participate in the Nuggets' first full practice following the All Star break on Tuesday, Nuggets' beat writer Chris Dempsey reports.

Added Yesterday 8:53 pm (EST)
The veteran big man missed the final four games before the break. The newly aqcuired Mason Plumlee started alongside Nikola Jokic in the final game before All Star weekend, but it is unclear what the team will do with their starting unit going forward. However, Faried figures to continue seeing something simliar to the 22.3 minutes per game he saw in the first half of the season. The Nuggets are hopeful he will be able to return Thursday.
Danilo Gallinari Headshot

Gallinari (groin) took part in a full practice Tuesday and expects to be available for Thursday's game against the Kings, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

Added Yesterday 8:51 pm (EST)
Gallinari missed the team's final eight games prior the All-Star break with a groin strain, but after a week off for additional treatment, it appears he's trending towards making a return. He was able to take part in a full practice Tuesday and all signs point to him being available Thursday, so he can be considered probable for that outing until further information has been provided. Gallinari's return would likely mean less minutes for guys like Wilson Chandler and Will Barton
Wilson Chandler Headshot

Chandler (illness) logged a full practice Tuesday, Nuggets' beat writer Chris Dempsey reports.

Added Yesterday 8:50 pm (EST)
Chandler missed the previous two games before the All Star break with an illness, but the team is hopeful he will be available for Thursday's game against the Kings. The newly acquired Mason Plumlee started along side Nikola Jokic in his first game with the team prior to the break, and it is unclear what the team plans on doing with their starting five going forward. Regardless, Chandler's workload will presumably not take much of a hit.
Emmanuel Mudiay Headshot

Mudiay (back) took part in a full practice on Tuesday, Adam Mares of DenverStiffs.com reports.

Added Yesterday 8:25 pm (EST)
Mudiay missed the last six games prior to the All-Star break because of back spasms, but after a week off for additional rehab, it appears he's finally nearing a return to full strength. His full participation in Tuesday's practice indicates he could be good to go as soon as Thursday's game against the Kings, although a final word on his availability might not come until later in the week. A return from Mudiay would mean a significant decrease in value for Jameer Nelson, who's taken over the starting point guard role for the duration of Mudiay's absence.
