J. Nunnally - SF
Nunnally was released by the Rockets on Monday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Rockets brought Nunnally in less than a week ago, but they'll be forced to waive the UC Santa Barbara product to accommodate the arrival of Kenneth Faried, who will be in uniform Monday night. Nunnally, who previously spent time with Minnesota, appeared in two games for Houston, totaling nine points, two assists and one rebound in 38 minutes of action.

D. Farquhar - RP
Farquhar signed a minor-league contract with the Yankees on Monday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports.com reports.
Farquhar suffered a major health in 2018, so this is an encouraging development for the soon-to-be 32-year-old. The right-hander owns a career 3.92 ERA and 1.26 WHIP across 272.1 major-league innings, so he should have a good shot at claiming an Opening Day bullpen gig, though nothing is guaranteed given the Yankees' impressive bullpen depth coupled with the uncertainty surrounding Farquhar's return.

K. Cowart - 3B
Cowart was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Monday.
Cowart, who owns a career .177/.241/.293 slash line across parts of four big-league seasons, was dropped from Seattle's 40-man roster in order to free up a spot for prospect Shed Long, who was acquired in a three-team trade Monday. He'll take a spin through waivers for the second time this offseason.

C. Anthony - SF
Anthony will not play for the Bulls, who will look to move him before the Feb. 7 trade deadline, Adrian Wonjarowski of ESPN reports.
As the dust settles, it looks as though Chicago simply did the deal as a quick cash grab and has no interest in keeping Anthony beyond the deadline. The Bulls could waive the veteran, but Wojnarowski indicates that it may be to their benefit to wait until next month to try to find a trade -- likely for a younger player. Anthony's contract cannot be aggregated in a multi-player deal, but the Bulls could trade him in a one-for-one situation.

J. Butler - SF
Butler (wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Rockets, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Butler picked up a right wrist injury over the weekend and will miss at least one game as a result. Fortunately, the issue doesn't appear to be anything overly serious, as Butler is being considered day-to-day. His next chance to suit up will come Wednesday against the Spurs. In the meantime, Furkan Korkmaz is a candidate to start at small forward in place of Butler on Monday.

M. Koskinen - G
The Oilers have signed Koskinen to a three-year deal carrying an annual cap hit of $4,500,000, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports.
This deal finally answers the question: "Which of its two goalies does Edmonton believe in more?" The answer is not Cam Talbot, the team's prized free agent signing back in January 2016, but rather Koskinen. The 30-year-old Finn has played in just 31 NHL games over his career, and in 2018-19, has posted a mediocre 14-10-1 record with a 2.78 GAA and .911 save percentage. With him now firmly entrenched in the Oilers' crease, expect the team to move Talbot before the trade deadline.

D. Jordan - C
Jordan tallied 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 FT), 15 rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 31 minutes during Monday's 116-106 loss to the Bucks.
Jordan was nursing an ankle injury heading into Monday's contest, but it didn't seem to slow him down much, as the veteran was able to post his sixth game with at least 15 points and 15 rebounds this season. The performance also marked his 28th double-double of the campaign. Jordan will look to continue his solid season when he faces his former team in the Clippers on Tuesday.
Added 5:43 pm (EST)
D. Dubnyk - G
Dubnyk will start Monday's game in Vegas, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Dubnyk is coming off a win in his last start, and two days prior to that, posted a 15-save shutout in a relief appearance. He'll look to slow down a Vegas team that is 8-2-0 in its last 10 games and sports an impressive 16-4-3 home record in 2018-19.
