Ty Lawson Headshot

Ty Lawson (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game.

Lawson did little in 20 minutes of court time before exiting Monday's game due to an ankle injury. He seems to have avoided a significant injury and should be back in the lineup Wednesday. Lawson had been playing well prior to Monday, averaging 14.4 points and 4.2 assists across the previous five games.

George Hill Headshot

George Hill (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game at Dallas.

The schedule could work out well for the Jazz in regards to Hill's health status, as they will not be back on the court until Friday night. Hill exited in the late stages of Monday's game and labeled as questionable for Friday. Following a three-game absence earlier this month, the veteran guard has been outstanding over the past six games, averaging 16.7 points, 4.5 assists and 4.0 rebounds.

Jared Dudley Headshot

Jared Dudley (illness) remains day-to-day.

Dudley is apparently dealing with an illness right now, but that is not likely effecting his potential playing time anyway. The veteran swingman has played in just one game this month, totaling just over five minutes.

Justin Forsett Headshot

Justin Forsett will consider retirement in the offseason.

Forsett was quite productive over 26 games (24 starts) for the Ravens between 2014 and 2015. He earned a Pro-Bowl selection in 2014, a season in which he compiled 1,529 yards from scrimmage and scored eight touchdowns. This past season was a total different story for Forsett, as he suited up for three different teams in 2016 and was largely ineffective in limited opportunities with each of them.

Dwight Howard Headshot

Dwight Howard (rest) is probable for Wednesday's game.

Howard sat out Monday night's game, the second in a back-to-back for the Hawks. The veteran center was on the court for nearly 32 minutes on Sunday night and played in all seven games this month prior to Monday, averaging 12.4 points and 12.7 rebounds while 61.5 percent from the field. Howard should be back in the lineup at Detroit on Wednesday.

Chris Paul Headshot

X-Rays came back negative on Chris Paul's left thumb.

Paul sprained his thumb in Monday night's game and exited after playing less than 14 minutes. These X-ray results are obviously a positive development, and given that the Clippers are off until Thursday, the veteran point guard might have a chance to avoid missing any games due to the injury.

Kevin Love Headshot

Kevin Love (back) said he doesn't expect to miss any time.

Love was obviously ailing in Monday's game against the Warriors, as he played just 16 minutes and shot 1-of-6 from the field. The Cavaliers are off until Thursday night, so Love has a couple of days to rest up.

Wil Myers Headshot

Padres and Wil Myers have agreed on a six-year extension worth $83 million.

Myers had a breakout season in 2016 and was going to be eligible for arbitration for the first time in his career. The Padres have now locked him up long term, buying out his arbitration years and a few beyond that. Myers struck out a whopping 160 times over 676 plate appearances last season, but he also put up 28 homers, 29 doubles and 28 stolen bases.

George Hill Headshot

George Hill suffered an ankle injury during Monday's game.

Hill has been a quality fantasy asset this season, well, when he's healthy that is. He's battled a few injuries this season, with his ankle being the latest ailment. Hill has scored 15 or more points in four of his last six games, while posting at least four rebounds or four assists in each of those games. Consider him day-to-day with this ankle injury.
