Leandro Barbosa SG FA 14 hours ago
Barbosa has signed a contract with Sesi Franca Basketball of Brazil.
The veteran was waived by the Suns in early July after playing 67 games with the team in 2016-17, posting 6.3 points across 14.4 minutes per game. He'll now join a team in Brazil, where he was born, to play professionally.
DTDJohn Wall PG WAS 14 hours ago
Wall (knee) is questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Raptors, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.
Wall finished with eight points (3-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt) during Friday's loss, indicating afterward that fluid in his knee caused the poor outing. The severity of the issue isn't clear at the moment, but the team seemingly feels comfortable listing him as day-to-day. Expect more updates on his status following Sunday's morning shootaround.
Ed Davis PF/C POR 14 hours ago
Davis suffered an ankle injury during Friday's game in Sacramento and is questionable for Saturday's rematch against the Kings, Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Davis was able to play through the injury Friday, seeing 22 minutes -- about two more than his average. More word should arrive on his availability closer to tipoff. If he's unable to play, Zach Collins would likely be a beneficiary.
OUTZach LaVine G CHI 15 hours ago
LaVine (knee) will visit his doctor Monday morning in Los Angeles with the anticipation of being cleared for contact practice later that day at UCLA, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports
Coach Fred Hoiberg noted Wednesday that LaVine "should be cleared [for practice] hopefully this week", so things seem to be going as planned. While there's certainly no rush to get LaVine back into games considering the Bulls' struggles, he's ahead of schedule in his recovery. Look for more updates Monday regarding his activity.
OUTDavid Nwaba G CHI 15 hours ago
Nwaba (ankle) did not practice Saturday due to lingering soreness and will not play during Sunday's game against the Suns, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Nwaba will miss his sixth straight game Sunday while nursing a sprained right ankle. In his stead, Denzel Valentine, Jerian Grant and Kris Dunn will likely continue being the main beneficiaries of his absence.
Ricky Rubio PG UTA 15 hours ago
Rubio (Achilles) is probable for Saturday's tilt against the Magic, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Rubio missed Friday's game against the Nets due to Achilles soreness, though that has seemingly subsided significantly. More word on his status should arrive closer to tipoff. But, if he's able to play, it would likely mean fewer minutes for Raul Neto. Rubio has struggled over his past five outings, posting just 8.2 points, 4.8 assists and 2.0 steals per contest.
Thabo Sefolosha SG/SF UTA 15 hours ago
Seoflosha (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Magic, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Sefolosha missed Friday's loss to the Nets and is looking like a true game-time decision Saturday. Jonas Jerebko figures to see increased minutes again should Sefolosha remain sidelined. Expect an update on his status closer to tip-off.
OUTIsaiah Taylor PG ATL 15 hours ago
Taylor is expected to miss one-to-two weeks after being diagnosed with a retina tear, Michael Cunningham of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Taylor was poked in the eye during Friday's practice. He's been playing a significant role on the Hawks this year, posting 6.2 points and 2.4 assists across 16.1 minutes per game. While he's sidelined, Malcolm Delaney is a strong candidate to absorb a significant chunk of his minutes, while it's possible the team opts to bring Tyler Dorsey or Josh Magette up from the G-League to help out.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF CHA 16 hours ago
Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) has been cleared to play for Saturday's game against the Clippers.
Kidd-Gilchrist was originally listed on the injury report as probable with a right ankle sprain, though apparently is feeling well enough to play after the team's morning shootaround. Over the past three contests, he's posted 13.0 points and 5.0 rebounds across 28.3 minutes per game.
OUTGlenn Robinson III SG/SF IND 16 hours ago
Robinson (ankle) has shed his crutches.
This is a big step for Robinson, who underwent surgery to address a severely sprained left ankle in mid-October. He's not expected to return until January, though it's encouraging to see him back on the court, even if it's just short-range standstill shooting.
