I. Thomas - PG
Coach Michael Malone has pushed back on reports that suggested Thomas (hip) is expected back in mid-February, Nick Kosmider of The Athletic reports. When asked about the situation, coach Malone responded, "Don't believe everything you read. I don't know where these leaks come from, but there is no timetable. There's nothing that's been set about February this, that or the other thing."
The report that Thomas is expected back in mid-February came Friday per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Coach Malone's comments don't rule out the possibility of a return then, but it appears things are less set in stone than initially thought. The situation may continue to develop.

G. Harris - SG
Harris will remain on a "18-20ish" minute restriction for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Chris Dempsey of the Nuggets' official site reports.
Saturday marks Harris' second game back from a hamstring injury, and he played 19 minutes Thursday against Chicago, posting 14 points, two assists and one rebound. He'll continue to be brought back slowly.

W. Barton - SG
Barton is still on an "18-20ish" minute restriction for Saturday's matchup against the Cavaliers, Chris Dempsey of the Nuggets' official site reports.
Barton has played three games since his return from an extended absence as a result of a groin injury. Still, it seems coach Michael Malone and the medical staff wants to bring Barton along slowly. That's a liberty the Nuggets can take, as Denver is 30-14 heading into Saturday's action.

J. Green - PF
Green will start Saturday against the Raptors, Eric Hasseltine of the Grizzlies Radio Network reports.
With Marc Gasol out due to back soreness, Green will move into the starting five next to rookie Jaren Jackson Jr. Green started the first two games of the year, but then suffered an injury and has come off the bench since. When seeing over 25 minutes, he averages 12.9 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals.
Added 7:30 pm (EST)
T. Johnson - SG
Johnson will come off the bench Saturday against the Bulls, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports.
With Josh Richardson (illness) returning to the starting five, Johnson will resume his usual role off the pine. When coming off the bench, he's averaging 10.6 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 steals in 25.1 minutes.
Added 7:27 pm (EST)
D. DiVincenzo - SG
DiVincenzo (heel) has been cleared to play Saturday against the Magic, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
DiVincenzo hasn't seen the court since Jan. 1 as a result of a heel injury, but he seems to have shaken it off and will be available if needed Saturday. That said, he's seen his role reduced since the Bucks brought in George Hill via trade.
Added 7:23 pm (EST)
R. Holmes - PF
Holmes left Saturday's contest against the Hornets due to a sprained left foot, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Considering Holmes was ruled out in the fourth quarter of a blowout, it's hard to gauge exactly how serious the injury is. We may learn more following the contest. He should be considered questionable for Sunday's game against the Timberwolves.
Added 7:20 pm (EST)
D. Ayton - C
Ayton left Saturday's game against the Hornets due to a sprained left ankle, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
Ayton's departure may not signal anything serious, as the game was out of hand in Charlotte's favor when the big man left. Still, Ayton should be considered questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Timberwolves.
