T. Johnson - SG
Johnson (knee) won't play in Saturday's game against the Kings, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Johnson will miss his fifth-straight game Saturday due to right knee soreness. Look for De'Anthony Melton to continue to see heavy minutes until Johnson returns.

J. Jackson - SF
Jackson (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against Sacramento, Kellan Olson of ArizonaSports.com reports.
Jackson has been downgraded to out with sprained right ankle. Look for Mikal Bridges and Ray Spalding to see heavy minutes as the Suns are short on wing depth with Jackson, TJ Warren (ankle) and Kelly Oubre (thumb) all out Saturday.

D. Rose - PG
Rose (elbow) underwent a successful surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow Saturday.
While the fact that the surgery was successful is a good sign that Rose is still on track to make a full recovery, it doesn't alter his original timeline for recovery at all. The veteran guard, who was having a strong year averaging 18.0 points and 4.3 assists per game, is still expected to miss the rest of the season but should be ready for the start of the 2019-20 campaign.

D. Motiejunas - PF
Motiejunas is moving in a deal to sign with the Spurs, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Motiejunas has spent time with the Rockets and, more recently, the Pelicans, but he's been playing overseas in China for the better part of the last two years. With the CBA season concluded, he'll return stateside to provide some added frontcourt depth down the stretch for a Spurs team that bought out Pau Gasol.

D. Collison - PG
Collison (quad) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Nuggets.
Collison has already missed the last two games with a bruised right quad, but there's hope that he'll be able to return to the lineup Saturday. The Pacers will wait until shootaround to give him a final evaluation, but if he is, indeed, cleared, he'd likely take back the starting point guard spot from Cory Joseph.
Added 1:52 pm (EST)
N. Batum - SG
Batum is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Celtics due to an illness.
Keep an eye on the veteran's status as tip-off approaches, though his value has taken a considerable hit of late, and he was moved to the bench for the first time all season Thursday against the Timberwolves. Batum finished that game with just two points and four rebounds in 23 minutes.
Added 1:44 pm (EST)
N. Vonleh - PF
Vonleh (ankle) will be held out of Sunday's game against the Clippers, Chris Iseman of The Record reports.
Vonleh will sit out for the fifth consecutive game, and the Knicks will reevaluate him sometime early next week while they're in the midst of a three-day break. Following Sunday's contest, New York plays Thursday against Toronto and Saturday against Miami -- both at home.
