Tim Duncan PF/C SA 3 Hrs
The Spurs-Wolves game in Mexico City will not be played on Wednesday.
There has been no makeup date announced. The NBA really wanted to play this game, but the conditions were just too bad with all of the smoke in the arena. The game will be made up at some point, but it might not happen in Mexico City.
Kevin Love PF/C MIN 4 Hrs
A fire in an elevator will delay the start of Wednesday's Spurs-Wolves game in Mexico City.
The arena has been evacuated and there is a power outage. It's unclear if the game will just being delayed or if they will have to postpone the game to another day. The teams have been put back on buses, so the chances of this game being played aren't very good. Stay tuned.
DeJuan Blair PF/C DAL 5 Hrs
DeJuan Blair will start at center for the Mavericks against the Pelicans on Wednesday.
It is his second start of the season with his first one coming after Samuel Dalembert oversleeping and missing morning shoot around last month. Blair has been terrific based on per-minute value, so if he can elevate his 20.8 minutes per game to over 24, he could gain a nice chunk of value.
Jose Calderon PG DAL 5 Hrs
Jose Calderon is in uniform for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans and will start.
He was a game-time decision for the past two nights and will start in each of those games. Calderon only scored 12 points on Tuesday and the bone bruise in his ankle has him at less than 100 percent.
Kobe Bryant SG LAL 5 Hrs
Kobe Bryant (Achilles) said he will not play against the Kings on Friday.
There was a decent chance that he could make his debut on Friday. In fact, NBATV switched the Lakers into the national spotlight against the Kings. Kobe said he would not rule out Sunday's game against the Raptors. NBA fans will have to wait a little while longer before the Black Mamba can return. Xavier Henry and Nick Young will have some value for a little while longer.
Jeremy Evans F UTA 6 Hrs
Jeremy Evans (illness) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday.
He's had a stomach bug since yesterday and isn't well enough to play. Evans has been very efficient in his seven games this year, shooting 72.2 percent from the field in 19.0 minutes. His absence should thrust rookie Rudy Gobert into the rotation.
Marvin Williams SF UTA 6 Hrs
Marvin Williams (Achilles) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday.
He had some inflammation in his surgically-repaired heel and the Jazz are going to play it safe. Enes Kanter will get the start after his demotion to the bench. Kanter's fantasy value was on life support with some poor defense and the Jazz playing way too slow with him and Derrick Favors in the frontcourt. He'll get a chance to show what he can do tonight and has a lot riding on a very tough matchup.
Chandler Parsons SF HOU 6 Hrs
Chandler Parsons (back spasms) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.
He has been dealing with the issue for over one month and it's a little concerning that his back tightened up on him just after he was planning to warm up for the game. The Rockets are coming off a loss against the Jazz and they really need Parsons in their lineup to be at their best. Without him, Francisco Garcia will get the start and Omri Casspi should see a handful of extra shots at power forward. James Harden will also get all the minutes he can handle.
Jose Calderon PG DAL 7 Hrs
Jose Calderon (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Pelicans on Wednesday.
He was a game-time call on Tuesday and was able to play and said he felt good after the game. Calderon should be able to play, but it wouldn't be a total shock to see him sit out. He didn't have a great game on Tuesday with 12 points and one assist, so it's not too bad of an idea to bench him in favor of a safer play.
