Quinn Cook Headshot

The Warriors assigned Cook to the G-League's Santa Cruz Warriors on Tuesday.

Cook has gotten some run at point guard when Steph Curry has been sidelined this season, but has not seen the court since Dec. 23. He will now look to get some reps in the G-League while he awaits another opportunity.
9:45 pm (EST)
Damian Jones Headshot

Jones was assigned to the G-League's Santa Cruz Warriors on Tuesday.

Jones has been back-and-forth between the NBA and G-League this season. He has logged just two minutes on the court during his time in Golden State, so his absence will have no affect on the rotation.
9:37 pm (EST)
Shane Prince Headshot

Prince was forced to exit the game Tuesday versus New Jersey after suffering an upper-body injury, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

This is certainly unwelcome news for both Prince and the Islanders, as the team came into the game shorthanded with only 11 forwards. The Isles are dealing with several injuries to their forward group, as Josh Bailey (lower body), Andrew Ladd (upper body), Casey Cizikas (hand), and Nikolay Kulemin (shoulder) are all out of the lineup. Losing Prince isn't a huge blow, as the third-line winger only has six goals in 61 games.

Marc Staal Headshot

Staal sustained a lower-body injury in Tuesday night's game against the Flyers and will not return.

Staal was having a fantastic game before departing, as he picked up an apple and skated to a plus-4 rating over 14:09 of ice time. View him as day-to-day until more information comes out from the team.

Mason Plumlee Headshot

Plumlee (abdomen) will play a reserve role in Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Plumlee was listed as probable heading into the evening, and will indeed give it a go. Coach Mike Malone indicated during pregame that he may shake up the starting lineup, which has indeed resulted in the big man being replaced by Will Barton. He has averaged 6.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.4 assists across 17.1 minutes in 22 appearances off the bench this season.
9:04 pm (EST)
Yogi Ferrell Headshot

Ferrell will shift back to a bench role for Tuesday's matchup with the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

The Mavericks are opting to go big against the Nuggets, with Maxi Kleber moving into the starting lineup and Ferrell coming off the bench. That will also allow Ferrell to serve as the Mavericks backup point guard and provide some ball-handling help in the second unit with J.J. Barea (groin) still sidelined. The demotion to the bench could potentially mean less minutes overall for Ferrell.
9:01 pm (EST)
Will Barton Headshot

Barton will get the start at small forward for Tuesday's tilt against the Mavericks, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Coach Mike Malone hinted during pregame that he may shakeup the starting lineup, and it turns out Barton will be the beneficiary. He has averaged 17.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 5.0 assists across a healthy 38.0 minutes in nine starts this season.
8:59 pm (EST)
Maxi Kleber Headshot

Kleber will move into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports.

The Mavericks are going big once again, with Kleber entering the starting five and Yogi Ferrell settling for a bench role. That said, Kleber is no stranger to the starting five and already has 28 previous stints in the top unit, posting averages of 6.3 points and 3.9 rebounds across 20.5 minutes. Despite the promotion, Kleber has limited utility for Tuesday's DFS slate.
8:57 pm (EST)
Skal Labissiere Headshot

Labissiere is dealing with a left shoulder strain and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Labissiere drew the start on Monday with Zach Randolph getting the night off for rest, posting seven points, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal across 28 minutes. However, it appears he may have picked up an injury during the contest, which brings his availability into question for Wednesday. According to James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area, the Kings are going to be resting 2-to-3 veterans each night in order to get the young guys more reps, so Labissiere could be set for more a bigger workload and more stints in the starting five moving forward, making him someone to monitor in season-long leagues. That said, look for another update on Labissiere's injury following the team's morning shootaround.
8:47 pm (EST)
Chris Boucher Headshot

Boucher (knee) is expected to make his G-League debut on Wednesday, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Boucher, who inked a two-way contract with the Warriors back in June, has been sidelined up until this point in the season while working back from a torn ACL. However, he's finally made a return to full strength and will get his first in-game action on Wednesday for the team's G-League affiliate. Considering the lengthy absence, Boucher will likely be eased back into the action, so there's a good chance he has some restrictions over the next few weeks. Once on a full workload with his conditioning in order, Boucher could get called up to the big club, though he's not expected to be a part of the regular rotation and can be avoided for fantasy purposes.
