Player Notes

  • Remaining out Wednesday
    Jerome (ankle) will not play Wednesday against Orlando.

    Advice: Jerome hasn't taken the court since Oct. 27 due to a right ankle sprain. He spent the majority of November in a walking boot, but he recently transitioned to a cast in response to his ankle failing to heal. Wednesday will mark a week since the immobilization of his ankle, but he'll need to be re-evaluated prior to beginning individual workouts. 6 minutes ago

  • Listed as probable
    Caruso (toe) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Advice: Caruso left Saturday's win over the Pelicans after aggravating a left toe injury that's lingered for weeks. The veteran was a limited participant during Tuesday's practice but will likely be back in action Wednesday. Over his last 11 appearances (seven starts), Caruso has averaged 12.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks in 23.6 minutes per game. 31 minutes ago

  • Listed as probable
    Coach Steve Kerr said Paul (lower leg) participated in Tuesday's practice and is probable for Wednesday's game versus Portland, Kendra Andrews of reports.

    Advice: Paul has missed back-to-back games due to a lower leg contusion but is expected to return Wednesday. The veteran point guard has been an inconsistent scorer for Golden State this season, but he's been a steady distributor, handing out 7.3 assists per game. Today, 1:04 pm
  • Back to NBA
    The Thunder recalled Mann from the G League's Oklahoma City Blue on Tuesday, Clemente Almanza of USA Today reports.

    Advice: As expected, Mann has returned to the NBA club after playing in the Blue's game against Birmingham on Tuesday. He finished the contest with 26 points (11-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and three steals. Today, 12:53 pm
  • Cleared for 5-on-5
    Minnesota announced Tuesday that McLaughlin (knee) has been cleared to participate in 5-on-5 drills.

    Advice: McLaughlin returned to practice Monday as a limited participant and has been given the green light for full participation moving forward. He'll likely remain sidelined for Wednesday's matchup against the Spurs, but his return to game action appears imminent. However, even when he's able to suit up again, McLaughlin isn't guaranteed playing time. He's averaging just 3.8 minutes across five appearances this season. Today, 12:12 pm
  • Jamal Murray (ankle) limited in practice Tuesday
    Jamal Murray (right ankle sprain) was a limited participant in practice ahead of Wednesday’s game against the Clippers.

    Advice: According to Nuggets coach Michael Malone, Murray didn’t participate in any “live” segments on Tuesday. The plan is to see how he feels after the team arrives in Los Angeles for Wednesday’s game and go from there. Should Murray not be cleared to play, Reggie Jackson will fill the void as the starting point guard. Rotoworld Today, 11:57 am

  • De’Anthony Melton (illness) probable for Wednesday
    De’Anthony Melton (illness) is probable for Wednesday’s game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Given the probable designation, Melton should ultimately be cleared to play on Wednesday. However, the returns of Joel Embiid, Tyrese Maxey, and Kelly Oubre will likely result in his offensive opportunities taking a hit. Melton should still be rostered in most leagues, with the hope being he’ll do enough in the other categories to make up for the potential hit in the points category. Rotoworld Today, 11:45 am
  • Officially cleared
    Maxey (illness) is not featured on the injury report in advance of Wednesday's game against Washington.

    Advice: Maxey will return from a one-game absence due to an illness and should be in line for his normal workload after being a full participant at practice Tuesday. Maxey has averaged 27.6 points, 5.6 assists and 4.2 rebounds across his last five games. Today, 11:43 am
  • Tyler Herro, Haywood Highsmith ruled out Wednesday
    Tyler Herro (right ankle sprain) and Haywood Highsmith (lower back contusion) have been ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Raptors.

    Advice: Herro, who has been sidelined since early November, still isn’t ready to return to game action. As for Highsmith, he injured his back during Saturday’s loss to the Pacers. Duncan Robinson will continue to serve as Herro’s replacement in the starting lineup, while Caleb Martin or Jaime Jaquez Jr. should receive the nod to fill in for Highsmith. Rotoworld Today, 11:35 am
