LeBron James Headshot

James suffered a cut on his face during Wednesday's game against the Nets. He went to the locker room to receive stitches but returned to the game, Joe Gabriele of Cavs.com reports.

The cut is apparently relatively serious, though it didn't prevent him from coming back to Wednesday's game. More updates on the injury should come after the contest or in the days that follow.
8:40 pm (EST)
Johnny Holton Headshot

Holton (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.

Holton is presumably under concussion protocol and will need to be cleared by an independent neurologist in order to play Sunday against the Broncos.
8:40 pm (EST)
Kayvon Webster Headshot

Webster (concussion) didn't participate at Wednesday's practice, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

Webster was removed from Sunday's visit to Minnesota due to a concussion, but only a few days removed from picking up the injury, he appears to be progressing through the protocol for head injuries. As evidence, head coach Sean McVay told Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News that "all things are going in a positive direction" with Webster's recovery. An appearance at practice Thursday or Friday would lend further credence to McVay's claims.
8:40 pm (EST)
David Amerson Headshot

Amerson (foot) didn't practice Wednesday

Amerson has missed each of the past three games due to an undisclosed foot injury. He doesn't appear to be on track to return in time for Sunday's game against the Broncos, but still has an opportunity to return to practice Thursday and Friday.
8:34 pm (EST)
Lance Dunbar Headshot

Dunbar didn't practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com reports.

Dunbar and knee concerns have gone hand in hand throughout his career. The primary reason he's played in 56 of a possible 90 contests to date, his absence Wednesday isn't an encouraging sign. On the other hand, the Rams may be giving Dunbar the day off as a precautionary measure. As a result, his activity level should be monitored closely as the weekend approaches to gauge his chances to spell Todd Gurley against the Saints on Sunday.
8:29 pm (EST)
Kevin Byard Headshot

Byard (shoulder) was a full participant at the Titans' practice Wednesday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

Byard injured his shoulder in last Thursday's loss to the Steelers but didn't miss any snaps and was expected to be good to go for Week 12. The 24-year-old will hope to continue his breakout season against the Colts on Sunday.
8:28 pm (EST)
Brian Orakpo Headshot

Orakpo (leg) was a full practice participant for the Titans on Wednesday, Jason Wolf of The Tennessean reports.

Orakpo suffered a minor leg injury in last Thursday's loss to the Steelers, but was never really expected to miss any time. The 31-year-old has only 2.5 sacks on the season and will hope to add to his total against the Colts this week.
8:24 pm (EST)
Nicolas Batum Headshot

Batum departed Wednesday's game against the Wizards with a bruised left elbow and will not return

Whether it's anything more than a routine bruise remains to be seen, but it's worth noting that it's the same elbow in which Batum tore a ligament during the preseason. Prior to exiting, the 28-year-old played 14 minutes and had four points (2-7 FG) to go with three rebounds. Jeremy Lamb started the second half in Batum's place.
8:23 pm (EST)
Bobby Wagner Headshot

Wagner (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Wagner missed a Week 9 practice due to a hamstring injury and was eventually deemed questionable for the ensuing game. That said, he proceeded to post his third double-digit tackle outing of the season, racking up 12 in a home loss to the Redskins. Due to his standing as the NFL's second-leading tackler with 92, Wagner's status is worth watching as the week goes on.
8:23 pm (EST)
Emmanuel Mudiay Headshot

Updating a previous note, the Nuggets will bring Mudiay off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Rockets after earlier reports indicated he would start over Jamal Murray, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

There was apparently some confusion as to who would actually be starting at point guard, with the public address announcer eventually stating Murray was drawing the start at point guard, clearing things up. Regardless, the two have essentially been splitting time, with Mudiay averaging 9.6 points and 3.6 assists across 22.4 minutes per game over the past five contests.
