James Harden, who missed his second straight game Wednesday with a bruised thumb, is listed as day-to-day with the Rockets off until Saturday, the Houston Chronicle reports.
With three days in between games, the Rockets will have plenty of time to evaluate Harden prior to Saturday's contest. Barring any setbacks, fantasy owners should expect to have Harden back in their starting lineup against the Cavaliers.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Derrick Rose will not play against the Bucks Wednesday.
Rose was doing full-contact drills Monday and participating in 5-on-5 work Tuesday. He's building up his conditioning and it shouldn't be much longer before he's back on the court. How many minutes he logs per game once he does return might be in question as the Bulls are looking more towards the playoffs than anything else. Analysis: Howard Bender
Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) wil play Wednesday.
Jones has missed the last six games with a collapsed lung, so to see him get back on the court Wednesday is great news just from a humanistic standpoint. If he can continue to shine glass as he's done throughout the season (7.3 boards per game), then he'll be a nice asset down the stretch. Analysis: Howard Bender
