  • Luka Doncic PG | DAL

    Mavericks' Luka Doncic: Questionable for Friday

    Doncic is questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics due to a left ankle sprain.

    Doncic must have tweaked his ankle during Wednesday's game, but we'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at Friday's shootaround. If he is forced to the sidelines, that would open up minutes for Tim Hardaway Jr., Jaden Hardy and Dante Exum.

  • Jett Howard SG | ORL

    Magic's Jett Howard: Recalled by Orlando

    Orlando recalled Howard from the G League's Osceola Magic on Thursday.

    Howard spent just over a week in the G League but will rejoin the parent club ahead of Orlando's game against the Jazz on Thursday. However, he's unlikely to see much playing time in the NBA.

  • Pelicans' Dereon Seabron: Headed to G League

    The Pelicans transferred Seabron to the G League's Birmingham Squadron on Thursday.

    Seabron will return to the G League after a short stint in the NBA. The 23-year-old forward will likely receive increased playing time in the G League.

  • Cam Reddish SF | LAL

    Lakers' Cam Reddish: Probable for Thursday

    Reddish (ankle) is probable for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Reddish returned to action Wednesday against the Clippers after missing 14 consecutive games due to a right ankle sprain. He tallied five points, three rebounds and a steal in 20 minutes during the win over the Clippers and will likely be able to suit up in the second half of the back-to-back set.

  • Mavericks' Tim Hardaway: Productive amidst shooting slump

    Hardaway chalked up 16 points (5-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and four assists in Dallas' 136-125 victory against Toronto on Wednesday.

    Hardaway has hit a major slump in the month of February, averaging just 10.6 points on 35.3 percent shooting, compared to 18.3 points on 42.3 percent shooting prior. While Kyrie Irving (thumb) has been in and out of the lineup since Dec. 11, his Feb. 5 return has resulted in a significant reduction in minutes for Hardaway. With the addition of P.J. Washington via trade Feb. 8 and the return of Dante Exum (knee), expect the 31-year-old to see a decline in minutes moving forward.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Likely to play Thursday

    Davis (Achilles) is probable for Thursday's game against Washington, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Davis has been dealing with bilateral Achilles tendinopathy recently but has been able to suit up despite the issue over the past few weeks. He's posted double-doubles in his last six appearances, averaging 25.7 points and 13.8 rebounds in 34.3 minutes per game, and he'll likely be available once again Thursday.

  • LeBron James SF | LAL

    Lakers' LeBron James: Questionable for Thursday

    James (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    James continues to deal with left ankle peroneal tendinopathy, but he's been available for the past three matchups and hasn't appeared to have significant limitations. Across those three appearances, he's averaged 30.7 points, 9.7 assists and 6.7 rebounds in 36.0 minutes per game. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available Thursday, but he should have a chance to make a significant impact if he's able to suit up.

  • Warriors' Andrew Wiggins: Taking leave of absence

    Wiggins (personal), who has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Knicks, is taking a leave of absence from the Warriors and doesn't have a clear return date, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

    Wiggins will sit out a second consecutive game, and coach Steve Kerr said before Thursday's game that he isn't sure when the 29-year-old will be back with the team. Wiggins was unavailable for the final 25 games of the regular season last year while tending to a personal matter, but it's unclear how long his current leave of absence will last. Moses Moody handled an increased role for Golden State on Tuesday and should continue to see additional playing time in Wiggins' absence.

  • Raptors' Chris Boucher: Questionable for Friday

    Boucher (illness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Warriors.

    Boucher is in danger of missing his second straight contest Friday due to a non-COVID illness. However, his potential absence won't impact Toronto's rotation.

  • 76ers' KJ Martin: Iffy against Charlotte

    Martin (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus the Hornets.

    Martin is in danger of missing his third straight contest Friday due to a right ankle impingement. If the 22-year-old forward is ruled out, Nicolas Batum and Darius Bazley are candidates to receive increased playing time.
