John Henson Headshot

Henson is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Suns with an eye injury in the Bucks' official game notes.

It's unclear exactly when Henson suffered the injury or how severe it is, but it appears as though the big man is going to miss at least one contest. With Mirza Teletovic (knee) also expected to be out, the Bucks are facing serious depth issues in the frontcourt, which could result in rookie D.J. Wilson seeing extended minutes for the first time this season.

Brock Osweiler Headshot

The Broncos plan to announce Paxton Lynch as their Week 12 starter Wednesday, with Osweiler expected to settle back into a backup role as a result, sources have informed Dan Graziano of ESPN.com.

Per Mike Klis of 9 News Denver, the Broncos' coaching staff hasn't informed any of the team's quarterbacks about who will start Sunday against the Raiders, but Osweiler always seemed likely to lose out on the gig once Lynch, who acted as the backup in Week 11 against the Bengals, was deemed healthy enough to play again after missing extended time with a right shoulder injury. Osweiler hasn't helped his case for retaining starting duties with the Broncos going 0-3 since he replaced Trevor Siemian atop the depth chart, with the signal caller completing just 53.1 percent of his passes and tossing four interceptions in those contests. The inexperienced Lynch carries similar concerns about his accuracy and ball security, but unlike Osweiler, he brings more mobility and untapped upside to the position, something the non-contending Broncos are surely interested in mining over the season's final stanza. Assuming Lynch does in fact garner the Week 12 start, it's unclear if Osweiler or Siemian would dress as his backup.

Khyri Thornton Headshot

The Lions waived Thornton on Tuesday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

The timing of Thornton's release is somewhat curious, given that he had practiced with the Lions on Tuesday and was fully expected to play Thursday against the Vikings. Evidently, the Lions felt the defensive tackle's roster spot would be put to better use by another player. Thornton appeared in four games for the Lions this season, logging four tackles and no sacks.

Melker Karlsson Headshot

Karlsson (upper body) will be on the Sharks' road trip to Arizona and Vegas, but his availability for either game is uncertain, Curtis Pashelka of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

Per this report, Karlsson could end up being a game-time decision for either or both of San Jose's next two games, but even if he does miss both, he's not likely to be sidelined much longer. The Swede is not generally a major offensive contributor anyway, so he probably won't be missed in the majority of fantasy lineups.
3:45 pm (EST)
Paul Martin Headshot

Martin suffered a new, undisclosed injury while recovering from his ankle ailment, Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News reports

Initial reports indicated Martin suffered a setback, rather than a new injury. On the positive side, the defenseman is not expected to require surgery for this latest condition, although when he might be cleared to return remains unclear. Brent Burns -- who has floundered without Martin -- figures to continue pairing up with Joakim Ryan for the time being.

Paxton Lynch Headshot

The Broncos plan to make Lynch their starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Raiders, a source informed Dan Graziano of ESPN.com, but the team has yet to formally announce a decision and likely won't until Wednesday.

Per Mike Klis of 9 News Denver, the Broncos' coaching staff hasn't informed any of the team's quarterbacks about who will be named the starter for Week 12, but with neither Trevor Siemian and Brock Osweiler having failed to provide much of a spark behind center this season, Lynch would seemingly be the most logical candidate to take over as starter. The 2016 first-round pick wasn't especially productive during his cameos in three games last season, completing 49 of 83 passes (59 percent) for 497 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while fumbling twice. He's been eased back into the mix since suffering a shoulder strain in the preseason and wasn't active for any of the Broncos' games until the Week 11 loss to the Bengals, during which he acted as Osweiler's backup. Lynch offers more mobility than the Broncos' other quarterbacks, but his accuracy and ability to protect the ball remain concerns. Fortunately, the latter issue may not be too significant of a problem if he ends up getting the start against Oakland, the only team in the NFL yet to record an interception this season.

Aaron Judge (R) Headshot

Judge underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left shoulder Monday to remove loose-body and clean-up cartilage.

The surgery was performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, and the good news is that Judge is expected to be ready prior to the start of spring training. The slugging outfielder dealt with some shoulder issues during the second half of last season, and while he tried to downplay the issue, it likely contributed to his drop-off in production after the All-Star break. He still posted an impressive .284/.422/.627 line with 52 homers, 114 RBI and nine stolen bases in 155 games for the Yankees. A fully healthy Judge should be poised for another big year at the plate in 2018.
3:43 pm (EST)
Furkan Korkmaz Headshot

Korkmaz was assigned to the G-League's Delaware 87ers, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Korkmaz was called up in advance of Saturday's game against the Warriors, though didn't play in that contest and saw just one minute of action in Monday's win over the Jazz. As it stands, it appears as if the rookie will spend the majority of his time in the G-League or on the 76ers bench. On the 87ers, he's averaging 13.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.5 steals in two appearances.
3:39 pm (EST)
Zach Conque Headshot

The Jets are expected to sign Conque to a contract later this week, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

Conque, an undrafted rookie out of Stephen F. Austin, will presumably slot in fourth on the depth chart at tight end behind Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Eric Tomlinson and Neal Sterling. Given the personnel in front of him, it's hard to imagine Conque carving out any sort of meaningful role in the Jets' passing attack.
3:34 pm (EST)
Josh Tupou Headshot

The Bengals waived Tupou on Tuesday.

Tupou appeared in the Week 10 win over the Titans while fellow defensive tackle Pat Sims sat out with a calf injury, but didn't see the field in Sunday's victory over the Broncos. The Bengals had waived Sims last weekend when it became clear he wouldn't be available against the Broncos, but with his health no longer much of a concern, the veteran re-signed with the team Tuesday, resulting in Tupou losing his roster spot.
