Daisuke Matsuzaka is expected to pitch in a rehab game early next week.
Matsuzaka only stepped onto a mound this past week, so his move to a rehab assignment seems a little hasty. Of course, what are they going to do...ruin him? He's Dice-K. He's already fairly close to that anyway. Should he not suffer any setbacks, he could be back on the hill for the Mets within two to three weeks.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Michael Floyd (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Floyd missed Week 11 due to a hamstring injury. He was a limited participant in practice all week, and is questionable for Week 12. Head Coach Bruce Arians is optimistic about his status, but Floyd may just be a decoy come Sunday if he's still limited by his hamstring. There are better plays for Week 12, unless Floyd is declared a full go. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Nik Stauskas (knee) said he is available for Friday's game.
Stauskas was supposed to miss the 76ers next three games after suffering a left knee contusion on Monday, and hoped to return at some point next week. Unexpectedly, Stauskas will be available on Friday to play. This doesn't mean he will play, but is significantly improves the chance that he is able to play on Sunday. Analysis: Ben Diamond
DeMarcus Cousins was upgraded to questionable Friday.
DeMarcus Cousins sat out the Kings game in Milwaukee on Wednesday but has been upgraded to questionable for Friday night. There is no guarantee he will play so monitor reports right up until game time in regards to Cousins. He has averaged 27.9 points, 11.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 10 games for the Kings this year.
