This is the Wizards' first back-to-back set of the season. Wall is coming off two knee surgeries so you can expect him to be rested on the second games of back to back sets. He played 33 minutes on Friday against the Hawks with 21 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer. Tomas Satoransky has leapfrogged Trey Burke in the rotation and could draw the start Saturday after he played 22 minutes on Friday with four points and three rebounds.
Patrick Beverley Headshot

Beverley (groin) will play and start in Saturday's tilt against the Timberwolves despite previous reports indicating that he would be sidelined, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Added 8:04 pm (EST)
Beverley tested out his injury in the pregame shootaround and determined that it's good enough for him to take part in Saturday's contest. He played 30 minutes Thursday against the Pelicans, and could see a similar workload against the Timberwolves.

Beverley (groin) will play and start in Saturday's game against the Timberwolves, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Added 8:03 pm (EST)
Beverley was initially reported to be out of Saturday's game due to his groin injury, but after working out his injury a bit he determined he could play. Eric Gordon, who was expected to start in Beverley's place, will come off the bench once again. It's unclear if Beverley will be limited at all, if he is look for Gordon to see some extra minutes off the bench.
Lance Thomas Headshot

Thomas will start at small forward in Saturday's game against Philadelphia.

Added 7:51 pm (EST)
It was initially reported that Thomas would come off the bench and Kyle O'Quinn would draw the start, but the Knicks changed their lineup at the last minute. Thomas played 31 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Cavaliers and figures to see a similar minute load on Saturday.
Kyle O'Quinn Headshot

O'Quinn will come off the bench for Saturday's matchup against the 76ers, despite earlier reports of him starting.

Added 7:50 pm (EST)
With Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) out, O'Quinn will continue providing a spark off the bench while Lance Thomas will draw the start at power forward.
Clint Capela Headshot

Capela will assume his normal role as the starting center for Saturday's contest against the Timberwolves, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Added 7:32 pm (EST)
Coach Mike D'Antoni opted to start Nene over Capela during Thursday's victory over the Pelicans, likely due to matchup, but has decided to go back to Capela as his starter for Saturday's tilt.
Eric Gordon Headshot

Gordon will start at shooting guard in Saturday's matchup with the Timberwolves, Rockets' radio announcer Craig Ackerman reports.

Added 7:30 pm (EST)
Gordon is getting the start in place of the injured Patrick Beverly (groin). Look for Gordon to see an increase in minutes on the day before eventually returning to the bench when Beverly returns.
Patrick Beverley Headshot

Beverley (groin) is out for Saturday's tilt against the Timberwolves, Rockets play-by-play announcer Craig Ackerman reports.

Added 7:27 pm (EST)
Beverley's groin strain that he's been dealing with since prior to the All-Star break has caught up with him, and he'll miss Saturday's contest. In his place, Eric Gordon will draw the start, with Lou Williams presumably taking over Gordon's role as the sixth man.
Hollis Thompson Headshot

Thompson will start at shooting guard in Saturday's contest against the Mavericks, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports.

Added 7:24 pm (EST)
Thompson played just five minutes in his Pelicans debut on Thursday, scoring three points. Now that he's getting the start in place of E'Twaun Moore (personal) he'll figure to see a sharp increase in play time. Look for Thompson to return to a role off the bench when Moore returns.
Jerian Grant Headshot

Grant will start at point guard in Saturday's tilt against the Cavaliers, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports.

Added 7:16 pm (EST)
Grant is drawing the start in place of the injured Michael Carter-Williams (knee). In addition to getting the starting nod, look for Grant to see some extra minutes on Saturday. He'll figure to return to his role off the bench when Carter-Williams is able to return.
Cameron Payne Headshot

Payne (illness) will make his Bulls debut Saturday against the Cavaliers, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Added 7:16 pm (EST)
With Michael Carter-Williams ruled out for Saturday due to a knee injury, Payne will have a strong opportunity to provide relief off the bench for the Bulls' starting point guard, Jerian Grant. He's shooting a horrendous 33.1 percent on the season, but a change of scenery could do him some good.
