Hawes (knee) is currently listed as "questionable" for Monday's game against the Jazz, Dan Woike of the Orange County Register reports.

Hawes has missed nine straight games for the Clippers, but it looks as if the 7-foot-1 forward could be nearing a return. Once he does take the court, he'll likely be eased into action, and shouldn't see too much more than 20-25 minutes on a given night -- at least initially.

Hawes (Knee) did not play Saturday against Toronto.

Although he was upgraded to doubtful prior to the game on Saturday, Hawes did not suit up against the Raptors. Hawes' upgrade to doubtful indicates that he'll be back on the court relatively soon. An earlier report stated that he'll be participating in 1-on-1 work over the weekend.The Clippers' next game is Monday against the Jazz, so his status for that contest is up in the air at this point.

Hawes (knee) has been upgraded from out to doubtful for Saturday's contest, Dan Woike of the OC Register reports.

Hawes, who's missed eight straight games, is still very unlikely to play Saturday, but the upgrade to doubtful is a step in the right direction. The big man is expected to begin 1-on-1 work over the weekend and will likely return to practice in the near future, barring a setback.

Hawes (knee) will miss his eighth straight game Thursday but expects to begin 1-on-1 work Friday, the Clippers' official site reports.

Hawes was averaging 6.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 0.7 blocks, and 0.8 three-pointers in 17 minutes per game before suffering his injury. When he returns, he should take on a very similar role. As long as Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan are healthy, Hawes won't get enough minutes to be of use in standard leagues.

Hawes (knee) will not play Monday against the Spurs, Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Hawes likely won't return until Saturday against the Raptors, so this is just an extension of a fairly long recovery timetable for the forward's bone bruise.

Hawes (knee) is dealing with a bone bruise on his knee but is without a return timetable.

False reports surfaced earlier in the week suggesting Hawes could miss the rest of the season, but the veteran refuted those reports, instead stating that the injury is actually healing well. "It's progressing, though," Hawes said. "It's going the right direction. That's what I'm most encouraged by. The range of motion's better, the pain's going down. It's responding to everything we've done treatment-wise and what we've done to try to test it out. Walking easier, got rid of my limp, so things are looking up." Look for further updates on Hawes' status in the near future, but for now it would seem safe to rule him out for at least the Clippers' next two games Friday (Denver) and Saturday (Milwaukee).

Hawes (knee) will not play Wednesday against the Pacers.

Hawes was doubtful for the contest anyway, so it's not too surprising to see him sit this one out. Look for Glen Davis or Ekpe Udoh to see a few extra minutes off the bench in Hawes' absence.

An MRI on Hawes' ailing left knee revealed a bone bruise, and it sounds like he'll miss at least two games as a result. Ekpe Udoh and Glen Davis both figure to see increased run in his absence.
