Joakim Noah will play through a sprained thumb Friday. He participated in today's shootaround.
Noah has posted a triple-double in two of his last three games, but is a risky play with the thumb injury and his struggles against Memphis. Noah is averaging just 7.3 points on 41.9 percent shooting in his six previous matchups against the Griz.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
