Toby Gerhart (hamstring) would not haven take part in practice Wednesday if the team had held a practice.
Despite not being ruled out as of Thursday morning, the chances Gerhart suits up for Week 17 seem slim. With both Adrian Peterson and Matt Asiata also banged up, the Vikings running game could be in trouble for their season finale against the Lions. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
David West will start for injured Tim Duncan on Tuesday.
In his last start David West had 10 minutes of play. Greg Popvich has been going towards more of a committee to fill-in for the hurting Tim Duncan. This has made the front-court a frustrating spot on the Spurs, unless it's LaMarcus Aldridge. There should be no reason for anyone to play David West, unless they lost a bet. Analysis: Mike Cahill
Michael Carter-Williams will come off the bench on Tuesday.
There has been talks going around that Michael Carter-Williams could get traded. Carter-Williams is a former Rookie of the Year winner, but has been inconsistent with the Bucks. The Bucks could be looking to build their roster differently and get what they can for the 24 year-old. Jerryd Bayless is the guy to watch and potentially pick up, especially if Carter-Williams gets traded. Analysis: Mike Cahill
Greg Monroe will come off the bench on Tuesday.
It appears that Greg Monroe will still get big minutes even though he is not starting. This could be a move by Kidd to get a spark out of the team. Monroe has been one of the more productive players for the Bucks and is averaging over 30 minutes per-game with 16.5 points and 9.6 rebounds. If you don't mind him not starting, he should still be worth a play. Analysis: Mike Cahill
