Joel Embiid (right ankle) is questionable for Friday's game vs. New Orleans.

Embiid is dealing with a right ankle issue, and it's also noteworthy that Friday night is the front end of a back-to-back for the Sixers. Embiid was cleared last week to play in the first back-to-back of his career, but it's unknown if Philadelphia will continue to play him on consecutive nights for the rest of the season. If Embiid is fighting through a nagging ankle injury, they may choose to err on the side of caution. If Embiid is ruled out, Amir Johnson and Richaun Holmes will divvy up minutes at center.

An MRI taken Saturday afternoon on Jimmy Butler's right knee revealed a meniscal injury.

The team did not reveal any other details on the injury and did not specify the severity. If he has a tear in his meniscus, he's likely looking at around 6-8 weeks, but it's possible that's not the case. If he only needs arthroscopic surgery, it may be closer to 3-6 weeks. It's worth a mention that Butler's right knee was the same knee that kept him out a week in the first half of the season. Butler's fantasy owners just have to sit tight for now. Meanwhile, picking up Nemanja Bjelica isn't a bad idea in 12-team leagues. For Wolves fans, it sounds like Butler has a good chance to be ready for the postseason.

Jonathon Simmons (ankle) is starting against the 76ers on Saturday.

He was expected to play and everything likely went fine in warmups. Simmons has kind of cooled off lately, but should have a decent opportunity to run some of the offense even with Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic in the mix.
Feb 24 - 4:29 PM

Tyson Chandler (neck) is doubtful for Saturday against the Blazers.

He had an MRI earlier this week and there's a very good chance he's out for several more games. Alex Len has looked the part of a starting center in his last two games, and perhaps the time off from the break helped his ankles get right. Len should be owned in standard leagues.

Updating a previous item, De'Aaron Fox (pink eye) is probable to play against the Lakers on Saturday.

This is a quick turnaround after Fox was just called questionable 10 minutes ago. He should be back tonight and he will likely have a lot of minutes headed his way. If he can make shots and stay healthy, Fox could have a nice finish to his rookie season.
Feb 24 - 3:31 PM

Kosta Koufos (illness) is questionable for Saturday against the Lakers.

He was reportedly very sick at the arena on Thursday night and it's possible the Kings hold him out again. Koufos being out should mean Zach Randolph would get heavy run as the starter next to Willie Cauley-Stein.

Coach Nate McMillan said that he does not expect Darren Collison (knee) to return during the Pacers upcoming four-game road trip.

There was some hope that Collison could return next week, but that now seems highly unlikely. "The recovery is not going as fast as we thought it would so it’s going to take a bit of time," said coach McMillan on Saturday. "I’d say on this road trip, he won’t be back." The Pacers embark on a four-game road trip beginning Monday in Dallas and don't return home until Monday, March 5th. Cory Joseph and Joe Young will continue to divvy up minutes at PG with Collison sidelined.
Feb 24 - 1:59 PM

Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

Olynyk has missed five straight games, but the questionable tag represents an upgrade, as it appears he is inching his way closer to a return. We should have a final update on Olynyk's status for Saturday when coach Erik Spoelstra addresses the media pregame. Hassan Whiteside, James Johnson and Bam Adebayo will see extra minutes if Olynyk remains sidelined.
Feb 24 - 1:19 PM

Coach Fred Hoiberg said that both Robin Lopez and Justin Holiday would not dress for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves.

This is the second straight game that Chicago has benched both Lopez and Holiday, as the Bulls are fully committed to tank mode. It now appears safe to drop Holiday in fantasy leagues. David Nwaba started for Chicago on Thursday and finished with 21 points, nine rebounds, and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes. He is worth consideration as a DFS flier on Saturday night.
Feb 24 - 1:08 PM

Although the MRI results have yet to be released, Jimmy Butler (knee) is officially listed as out for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

Wolves fans and Butler owners remain forced to anxiously await an update on Butler's knee. According to NBA.com's David Aldridge, there was "some optimism" in Butler's camp that he did not tear his ACL on Friday night. We'll pass along an update as soon as the results of the MRI are revealed.
Feb 24 - 1:06 PM

Tyreke Evans (right rib), Chandler Parsons (illness) and Wayne Selden Jr. (right knee soreness) have been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

Evans injured his rib in the fourth quarter Friday night vs. Cleveland. He was in pain as he headed to the locker room and was unable to return to the contest. Thus, it is not surprising the Grizzlies kept him out on the second night of a back-to-back. We can expect an update on Evans' status going forward when coach JB Bickerstaff addresses the media Saturday night. Memphis' next game is Monday at Boston. Andrew Harrison and Ben McLemore will likely see an uptick in minutes and scoring opportunities with Evans sidelined.
Feb 24 - 12:52 PM

Eric Gordon (illness) was unable to practice on Saturday and is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Gordon missed Friday's game vs. Minnesota due to the same illness. If he is unable to suit up on Sunday as well, P.J. Tucker, Luc Mbah a Moute and Joe Johnson would see additional playing time. The Rockets then play the back end of a back-to-back on Monday in Utah.
