Reggie Bullock    G/F  Pistons



Reggie Bullock went 5-of-14 from the field and 3-of-4 from the stripe on his way to 14 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, five assists and one turnover in 30 minutes. The Pistons came out fairly flat in this one, and Bullock struggled to get going due to some tough defense from Nicolas Batum, missing his first four shots and not connecting from beyond the arc until mid-way through the third quarter. As a team, Detroit only put in four 3-pointers on 4-of-18 shooting, which was a season-low and helped contribute to the blowout loss.

Patty Mills    G  Spurs



Patty Mills will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Cavs. Danny Green (illness) will be coming off the bench in his return from a one-game absence, so while Mills will remain a starter, he likely won't play quite as many minutes with Green available. Joining Mills in the starting five will be Dejounte Murray, Kyle Anderson, LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson    F  Nets



Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) and Caris LeVert (knee) will be available to play on Monday vs. the Bulls. RHJ and LeVert could be dealing with a minutes limit in their first game back from lengthy layoffs, but Hollis-Jefferson is worth swooping up in most leagues if he was cut during the injury. RHJ's return to the court will result in fewer minutes for Quincy Acy and Joe Harris, and LeVert might push Nik Stauskas out of the rotation entirely.

Caris LeVert    G  Nets



Caris LeVert (knee) will be available to play Monday vs. the Bulls. LeVert wasn't playing all that well prior to going down, and considering he'll likely be on a minutes limit upon his return, there's not much reason to grab him in most leagues. He'll siphon away minutes from guys like Nik Stauskas and Joe Harris once he's fully up to speed.

Eric Bledsoe    G  Bucks



Eric Bledsoe (left wrist) is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pelicans. Bledsoe was always expected to play, but now we have official confirmation. He'll be joined by the usual starting five featuring Khris Middleton, Tony Snell, Giannis Antetokounmpo and John Henson. Feel free to get him active.

Jimmy Butler    G/F  Timberwolves



Jimmy Butler underwent successful meniscus surgery on his right knee on Sunday, and he's being listed as "out indefinitely." The good news is that he hasn't yet been ruled out for the season, and Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reported on Saturday that there's a chance Butler could return in 4-6 weeks. We haven't been made aware the exact procedure Butler underwent, but if he is able to return this season that would likely mean he underwent a meniscectomy, which is complete removal of meniscus. Butler will likely be limited upon his return, but a 4-6 week window would give him the opportunity to return during the fantasy playoffs. Andrew Wiggins will be one of the primary beneficiaries here, and Nemanja Bjelica has some deep league appeal as the fill-in starter.

Danny Green    G/F  Spurs



Danny Green (illness) will play Sunday vs. the Cavs. Green sat out Friday's game with the illness, but he was never listed on the injury report today and always expected to get back out there. He'll likely start, which will shift Patty Mills back to the second unit.

Danilo Gallinari    F  Clippers



The Clippers are listing Danilo Gallinari (right hand) as day-to-day. Gallinari sat out the second game of a back-to-back set in Phoenix on Friday, but he could be back in action as soon as Tuesday's game in Denver. Doc Rivers said that Gallinari's ability to play will be a "pain tolerance thing," so it doesn't sound like he's dealing with anything serious. Tyrone Wallace's minutes will take a hit when Gallinari gets back out there.


Feb 25 - 2:13 PM

Avery Bradley    G  Clippers



Avery Bradley (groin) will miss the next 1-3 weeks of action. Doc Rivers said that while he doesn't know exactly when Bradley will be able to make it back to the court, he'll be out "a while." Milos Teodosic, Tyrone Wallace and Austin Rivers will split his minutes, and with how bad Bradley has been this season, he belongs on the wire in most leagues at this point.


Feb 25 - 2:10 PM

Manu Ginobili    G  Spurs



Manu Ginobili (bruised sternum) will not play Sunday vs. the Cavs. Ginobili isn't dealing with a serious injury, but it doesn't take much for the 40-year-old to hit the sidelines. His minutes will be divvied up between Bryn Forbes and Patty Mills, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.
