  • LeBron James SF | LAL

    Lakers' LeBron James: Listed questionable for Saturday

    Jams is considered questionable for Saturday's game versus the Pelicans due to left ankle soreness, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

    James has a history of being listed as questionable and has most often played in the contest. With a day off between games, it seems likely he will be in action Saturday as well, but it will still be worth keeping tabs on the superstar's status ahead of the 6 PM ET opening tipoff.

  • Austin Reaves SG | LAL

    Lakers' Austin Reaves: Will remain out Saturday

    Reaves (hamstring) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Pelicans, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

    There was optimism that Reaves would be able to return from a month-long absence Saturday, but he'll ultimately be sidelined for at least one more contest due to a left hamstring strain. Head coach Darvin Ham said Thursday that the second-year pro is in the final stage of his recovery process, so it wouldn't be shocking to see Reaves without an injury designation for Tuesday's matchup against the Thunder.

  • Lakers' Anthony Davis: Likely to play Saturday

    Davis (foot) is probable for Saturday's game against the Pelicans, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Davis continues to deal with a right foot stress injury, but he'll likely be able to suit up for a third consecutive game Saturday. He's appeared in four of the Lakers' last five matchups and has averaged 23.8 points, 11.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 33.0 minutes per game during that time.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Remains out

    Daniels (ankle) has been ruled out for Saturday's matchup against the Lakers, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Daniels will miss a sixth straight game Saturday due to a right ankle sprain. Head coach Willie Green said Jan. 25 that the rookie would be "out for a little bit of time," but the team hasn't provided an update since. Daniels' next chance to play will arrive Sunday against the Kings.

  • Drew Eubanks C | POR

    Trail Blazers' Drew Eubanks: Gets starting nod

    Eubanks will start in Friday's game versus the Wizards, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Eubanks will start in place of Jusuf Nurkic (calf), who is expected to be out through the All-Star break. The 25-year-old big man is averaging 7.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.3 blocks in 28.0 minutes across his previous six starts this season.

  • Kings' Davion Mitchell: Will start Friday

    Mitchell will draw the start Friday against the Pacers, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Mitchell was the logical candidate to get the starting nod once it was announced De'Aaron Fox would sit out Friday's tilt, and Kings head coach Mike Brown confirmed has confirmed that will be the case. Mitchell has averaged 8.0 points, 4.0 assists and 2.7 rebounds over 29.0 minutes in his three previous starts this season.

  • Bulls' Patrick Williams: Dealing with right ankle sprain

    Williams is questionable for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers due to a right ankle sprain.

    Williams totaled six points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes during Thursday's matchup against the Hornets, and he appears to have twisted his ankle during the contest as well. If the third-year forward is unable to suit up, Derrick Jones would be a likely candidate to join the starting lineup.

  • Alex Caruso SG | CHI

    Bulls' Alex Caruso: Questionable against Portland

    Caruso (foot) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Caruso was forced to leave Thursday's game against the Hornets due to a foot issue, and he's been diagnosed with left mid foot soreness. If't not yet clear whether he'll be available Saturday, but Goran Dragic and Coby White could see increased run if Caruso is out.

  • Bulls' Nikola Vucevic: Probable Saturday

    Vucevic is probable for Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers due to a left quad contusion.

    Vucevic has posted double-doubles in his last three appearances, averaging 22.0 points, 13.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 37.0 minutes per game during that time. While he's dealing with a quad issue ahead of Saturday's matchup, it appears likely that he'll be able to suit up.

  • Thunder's Jeremiah Robinson-Earl: Returns to G League

    The Thunder assigned Robinson-Earl to the Oklahoma City Blue of the G League on Friday, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Robinson-Earl's stints in the G League indicate that he is close to returning from his right ankle sprain. The second-year big man hasn't played since Dec. 12 but is going through the final part of his rehab with the Blue to get back into playing shape. Robinson-Earl started in 18 of his 26 appearances before going down to injury.
