Davis Bertans (concussion) will remain on the sidelines for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

This will be Bertans second game out of the lineup, and he'll need to clear the league-mandated concussion protocol testing before he's allowed to return to the court. With Rudy Gay (rest) questionable and Pau Gasol (foot) out, LaMarcus Aldridge could be flirting with close to 40 minutes tonight.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol (foot) and Davis Bertans (concussion) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

This will be the seventh consecutive game out of the lineup for Gasol, and it's unclear when the 38-year-old will be able to return. With both Gasol and Bertans unavailable for tonight's game, LaMarcus Aldridge will get all the run he can handle with Jakob Poeltl seeing limited minutes off the bench.

Rudy Gay (rest) is being listed as questionable for Monday's matchup with the Pelicans.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set, so Gay could certainly take the night off. We likely won't get official confirmation on his status until just prior to tip-off, but if he's out tonight, Derrick White could return to the starting five and LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan will be asked to do more on offense. Stay tuned.

Scott Brooks hinted that Troy Brown Jr. could be more involved in the rotation moving forward.

"He’s been working extremely hard," said Brooks of Brown Jr., who saw 10 minutes off the bench on Sunday. "I like what I see, it’s always available. He might get some time tomorrow." With the Wizards getting off to a 5-11 start this season, it couldn't hurt Brooks to experiment with the rotation, but it's tough to see Brown Jr. getting enough floor time to matter while Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre are healthy.

Erik Spoelstra said he expects Dwayne Wade (personal) to return to the team "soon."

The Heat could really use him back with Goran Dragic (knee) ruled out for the week, so maybe he'll be able to return to the court for Tuesday's game against the Nets. He had been playing relatively well prior to stepping away from the team after the birth of his daughter, so he could be worth a speculative add in deep leagues.

Dwight Howard (gluteal soreness) did not participate in Monday's practice.

This isn't the least bit surprising after Howard was forced out of Sunday's game with the back/butt issue, and considering he was struggling to put on socks on Sunday, we'd expect him to miss time moving forward. D12 is 32 years old with a history of back issues, which is very concerning, and the Wizards probably won't rush his return with them sitting on a 5-10 record. Markieff Morris will be the primary beneficiary while Howard is out, and Ian Mahinmi will likely return to the starting five.
Nov 19 - 1:40 PM

Kris Dunn (left MCL sprain) has progressed to doing some straight-ahead running.

Today marks Week-4 of Dunn's 4-6 week timetable and considering he's still not taking contact or going through hard cuts, it's obvious that he'll be closer to the six-week mark; which is what we expected. The Bulls are sitting on a 4-13 record, so they're in no rush to bring Dunn back, and it'll be Ryan Arcidiacono and Shaquille Harrison splitting the majority of his minutes while he's out.

Goran Dragic had his right knee drained on Monday and will sit out the next three games for Miami.

"We knew it wasn’t serious but we knew it was something that needed to be taken care of," said Erik Spoelstra. "Hopefully, we can take care of it and wipe it out right now." It's never a good sign for a 32-year-old to be dealing with knee issues this early in the season, and this is the same knee that cost Dragic time last season. Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington will be the primary beneficiaries while he's out, and Josh Richardson will spend more time running the offense.
