Williams (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.
Williams has been downgraded from questionable to out and will miss his first game of the season. In Williams' absence, Nick Richards, who recently returned from a six-game absence due to a concussion, will likely start at center. However, Charlotte may opt to run out some smaller lineups with P.J. Washington or Miles Bridges at the five.
Eason (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Eason missed the start of the campaign due to a stress fracture in his left leg but has been a key rotation piece since making his debut Nov. 8. Across 10 appearances, the second-year forward has averaged 6.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 17.9 minutes per game.
Wade (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game against the Magic, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Wade has been upgraded from questionable and will be available for the first time following a six-game absence due to an ankle injury. Wade has drawn a handful of starts this season, but he'll operate off the bench with Cleveland close to full strength.
Melton (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.
Melton was probable for Wednesday's matchup due to an illness, so it isn't surprising that he'll be able to suit up. He's averaged 15.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 30.4 minutes per game over his last five appearances.
Edwards (hip) is available for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.
Edwards missed Minnesota's last two games, but he fully participated in practice Monday and has been given the green light to return to action against San Antonio. Over five appearances before his absence, he averaged 26.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 35.4 minutes per game. Coach Chris Finch said Edwards won't have a minutes restriction during his first game back.
Oubre (ribs) will come off the bench during Wednesday's matchup against the Wizards, Lauren Rosen of the 76ers' official site reports.
As expected, Oubre will return to action following an 11-game absence but will be under a minutes restriction and be used in short stints as he increases his conditioning level. Before the injury, Oubre was off to a fast start in 2023-24, averaging 16.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 29.0 minutes per game.
Isaac (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.
Isaac has dealt with an ankle injury over the past few days and won't be able to suit up against Cleveland. Joe Ingles could see a slight uptick in minutes during Wednesday's matchup, while Isaac's next chance to return will be Friday against Detroit.
Bagley (back) is available for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.
Bagley's playing time has dramatically dropped over the last week, averaging just 12.3 minutes over his last four appearances. He was also completely left out of the rotation in a game during that stretch. Bagley figures to see another limited role versus Memphis.
Shamet (neck) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Shamet didn't practice Tuesday and will officially be sidelined for the first time in a month. Corey Kispert and Jared Butler are candidates to see increased roles against Philadelphia.
Davis missed time earlier in the season due to an elbow issue and is now dealing with a calf injury that will sideline him for multiple games. The 2022 lottery pick has struggled to stay healthy in his first two seasons and hasn't produced even when he's been on the court.
