John Wall will not be included on Team USA's basketball roster when it comes out Monday, but word is that he could be added later.

Missing the first cut may prove to be more beneficial, in the long-run, for Wall, the Wizards, and his fantasy owners. First off, the NBA season is long enough as it is, so not having the added off-season responsibilities that would come with making Team USA should help John avoid hitting a late-season 'wall' of fatigue. Secondly, the slight could provide some extra-motivation for Wall as he prepares for the 2014-15 season. ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Nick Young (knee) still remains questionable for Tuesday' game.

Young has missed the last three games with the knee troubles and it appears it will hold him out again Tuesday. Wayne Ellington will look to get the starting minutes while Young continues to be out of the line-up. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Detroit Pistons have signed Quincy Miller to a second 10-day contract.

This will be Miller's second 10-day contract with Detroit, but has yet to appear in a game this season for the Pistons. He previously was with Sacramento, where he averaged 2.8 points and 2.0 rebounds a game. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Colts sign DE Earl Okine.

Okine didn't play in a regular game last season after being released from the Houston Texans. He will play in Indianapolis next season. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Nick Castellanos left Tuesday's game with a left hand contusion. X-rays were negative and he is day-to-day.

Castellanos left the game, but appears to be fine and will just need some rest. He is penciled in as the opening day starter for the Tigers and will be an interesting option in fantasy league's this season after an average 2014 campaign. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Bills could have interest in former Cincinnati tight end Jermaine Gresham.

The Bills are in the marketing with Scott Chandler also a free agent and Gresham was a serviceable option last season in Cincinnati. Bills also need to worry about the quarterback position, which should be priority #1. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Chandler Parsons (left ankle) will travel with the Mavericks on there up coming road trip.

Parsons has been out since Feb. 22, but signs point to his eventual return the Mavs' starting lineup. While he has been out, Richard Jefferson has taken the starting minutes but is set for a return back to the bench. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Tyson Chandler (left hip) will travel with the Mavericks on there up coming road trip

Chandler has not played in the last three games, but will travel with the team. This is an encouraging sign as it looks like he will returning soon. Amar'e Stoudemire has fit right in with the Mavs while injuries have been occurring all around him, but if Chandler returns, expect his minutes to go down. Analysis: Rob Trayah

DeMarre Carroll said his shoulder is feeling fine.

Carroll sat out Saturday night's game with the shoulder issue, but will be back in the lineup Tuesday. He should get his starting spot back and kick Elton Brand back to the bench. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Chris Young is planning to sign with a team by the end of this week.

Young started 29 games last season for Seattle and outpitched some of the more common sabermetrics, finishing the season with a 12-9 record and a 3.65 ERA. At age 35, Young is gaining some traction to finding a team that requires his services, but he still doesn't offer enough fantasy wise for owners to look at him in drafts. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Panthers have re-signed defensive tackle Colin Cole to one-year deal.

Cole has been a part of the Carolina line for the past two seasons and will return for another have signing a one-year deal at age 35. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Mookie Betts appears to be a lock to hit leadoff and start in center field in 2015, according to sources in the Red Sox.

Betts is battling with Rusney Castillo for the job and it will be a fight through out Spring Training. It's probably too early to pencil Betts into the starting job in center, but he will certain get ABs at the big league level. It's still hard to project his true numbers with no official announcement from the Red Sox organization. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Jimmy Butler (left elbow) says he is doing all right and that he hopes to be back before end of regular season

Butler is projected to miss 3-6 weeks with the elbow injury, putting him close to the regular season finale. The Bulls will need him if they hope to have any success in the playoffs with Derrick Rose most likely out of the picture with knee troubles again. While he is out, look for Kirk Hinrich to take over SG duties. Analysis: Rob Trayah

Jarrod Parker was pleased with his bullpen sessionTuesday.

After receiving Rookie of the Year votes in 2013, Parker sat out the entire 2014 season recovering from his second Tommy John surgery. He figures to factor into the Athletics rotation at some point this season, so keep on the look out for him to be a sleeper in deep leagues. Analysis: Rob Trayah
