L. Mbah a Moute - PF
Mbah a Moute (knee) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Mavericks.
Coach Doc Rivers has provided no recent indication that Mbah a Moute is zeroing in on a return to game action, so it feels safe to rule the forward out for the second half of the back-to-back set Wednesday in Miami as well. Mbah a Moute has been sidelined since Oct. 23 with a sore left knee.

T. Burke - PG
Burke (illness) isn't listed on the Knicks' injury report in advance of Wednesday's game against the Rockets.
Burke was inactive in Monday's 127-109 loss to the Thunder, but that may have had more to do with his status as a non-rotation player than any concern about his health. Now third on the depth chart at point guard, Burke isn't in line to see meaningful minutes anytime soon, though he may at least dress for Wednesday's contest. With center Luke Kornet (ankle) sitting out Wednesday and expected to remain out a couple of weeks, there will at least be one more active spot available for the Knicks than usual.

J. Noah - C
Noah (personal) will remain out for Wednesday's contest against the Hornets.
Noah's absence will extend to three games as he continues to tend to a personal matter. His next opportunity to return will come Friday against the Kings.
Added 4:38 pm (EST)
M. Gasol - C
Gasol is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets due to back soreness.
This is the third straight game that Gasol has popped up on the injury report with back soreness, but after sitting out Saturday's game in Toronto, Gasol returned to play 35 minutes against the Pelicans. Look for the big man to be a game-time decision come Wednesday.
Added 4:36 pm (EST)
O. Casspi - SF
Casspi (illness) wasn't listed on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against Charlotte.
Casspi appears to have returned to health after sitting out of Monday's contest due to illness. He figures to be a full go at home against the Hornets and could be in store for an uptick in minutes with Kyle Anderson (ankle) still out of the mix.
Added 4:36 pm (EST)
G. Temple - SG
Temple is probable for Wednesday's game against Charlotte due to right heel soreness.
It's unknown when Temple's injury cropped up, but it doesn't appear overly serious as Memphis expects him to play through the issue. Expect an update on Temple's status closer to tip.
Added 4:34 pm (EST)
A. Drummond - C
Drummond remains in concussion protocol and failed to practice with the team Tuesday, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Drummond could rejoin the team in time for Wednesday's game against New Orleans if his upcoming evaluations go well, although he'll have to pass through concussion protocol before he can take the court. His status for Detroit's upcoming matchup doesn't look promising at this point, but that could change as tipoff nears.

B. Knight - PG
Knight (knee) won't play Wednesday against the Knicks, Mark Berman of Fox 26 Houston reports
Knight is slated to miss his sixth straight contest due to left knee soreness, and it's unclear as to when he might return to action. His next chance to do so will come Friday against the Raptors.
