Kristaps Porzingis Headshot

Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) remains questionable for Monday's game.

Porzingis has been dealing with Achilles soreness that has kept him out of the Knicks' last two games. The young forward is largely expected to sit out a third straight contest Monday night. Kyle O'Quinn could see additional run.

Lance Thomas Headshot

Lance Thomas (face) has been ruled out for Monday's game.

Thomas suffered a left orbital fracture in Sunday's game and has been dealing with concussion-like symptoms since. He will not play Monday night and his short-term outlook is uncertain.

Otto Porter Headshot

Otto Porter (hip) is probable for Monday's game.

Porter exited Saturday's game with a hip issue after playing 30 minutes. His status for Monday was thought to be in jeopardy, but it appears he will give it a go. Porter has scored in double-digits each of the past six games, averaging 14.0 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.0 treys, 1.8 steals and 1.3 blocks.

Adam Jones Headshot

Court case involving Adam Jones has been put on hold until next month while the judge waits to hear on the NFL's punishment.

Jones is facing several different charges related to his arrest at a Cincinnati hotel earlier this month. Jones has dealt with off-field issues in the past, leading to suspensions in 2007 and 2008. He has largely cleaned up his act and remained a consistent contributor on the field for the Bengals since 2010, so this has obviously been a troubling development.

Trevor Cahill Headshot

Padres have agreed to a one-year deal with Trevor Cahill.

Cahill's days as a MLB starter seem well behind him, but the 28-year-old righty had a very nice season out of the Cubs' bullpen in 2016. Cahill posted a 2.74 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 9.0 K/9 across 65.2 innings for the World Champs. He should slot into a middle relief role for the Padres.

Marco Gonzales Headshot

Marco Gonzales (elbow) said he's feeling healthy and hopes to begin the season in the Triple-A rotation after missing the 2016 season to Tommy John surgery.

After being selected with the 19th overall pick of the 2013 Draft then surging to the Cardinals' farm system, Gonzales has seen his career trajectory largely disrupted by injuries over the past two years. Gonzales rapidly escalated to the bigs following his departure from college (Gonzaga), as he made his MLB debut in late-June of 2014. The young lefty appeared in 10 games (five starts) for the Cardinals that year and made one appearance in the majors in 2015. If Gonzales can remain healthy and regain his previous form, he certainly seems to have a shot at cracking the majors once again in 2017.

Jose Bautista Headshot

Blue Jays and Jose Bautista are discussing a two-year, $35-$40 million deal.

After testing the free-agent market for the past couple of months, it appears Bautista is headed back to the place where he became a star. The 36-year-old slugger was an All-Star for the Blue Jays every season from 2010-15 before a bit of a downturn in overall performance last season. In an injury-riddled 2016, Bautista still managed a solid .817 OPS with 22 homers and 24 doubles across 517 plate appearances.

Tarik Black Headshot

Lakers Head Coach Luke Walton indicated that Tarik Black suffered a sprained ankle on Sunday.

Black missed almost all of December due to an ankle injury, and it now appears that he may have another fairly significant one. The 25-year-old center exited Sunday's game against the Pistons after playing less than 12 minutes and his status should be further updated over the next day or so.

Jose Bautista Headshot

Blue Jays are closing in on a deal with Jose Bautista.

After testing the free-agent market for the past couple of months, it appears Bautista is headed back to the place where he became a star. The 36-year-old slugger was an All-Star for the Blue Jays every season from 2010-15 before a bit of a downturn in overall performance last season. In an injury-riddled 2016, Bautista still managed a solid .817 OPS with 22 homers and 24 doubles across 517 plate appearances.
