Devin Harris (ATL) – Left Tuesday’s game with an ankle injury and didn’t return.

Daniel Gibson (CLE) – Sprained an ankle Tuesday night.

Anderson Varejao (CLE) – Suffered a knee contusion, but played through it.  Check his gametime status tonight.

Rodney Stuckey (DET) – Stuckey is a gametime decision tonight with back spasms.

Kenneth Faried (DEN) – Played through the flu and even vomited on the bench during the game.  Give the guy credit for playing sick, but keep an eye on the rest of the Nugget players to make sure it doesn’t spread to other teammates.

John Wall (WAS) – I’m getting the feeling that Wall’s injury was a lot more serious than the Wizards were willing to admit.  Not sure if he’s going to see the court again this season.  BulletsForever.com had a great article on Wall’s injury information.

Lance Stephenson (IND) – Sprained an ankle last night and had a walking boot on.  Not looking good for his next game.  Gerald Green might move back into the starting lineup.

Malcolm Lee (MIN) – Suffered a hyperextended knee.  He’s not much of a fantasy asset and probably the most important thing you can take away from this is that Alexey Shved and JJ Barea could see more minutes.

Josh Howard (MIN) – Out Wednesday with the flu.

J.R. Smith (NYK) – Smith suffered a minor back injury in his last game and is likely a gametime decision tonight.

Royal Ivey (PHI) – Missed Wednesday with strep throat.  Not a big deal for fantasy owners with regard to Ivey, but keep an eye and make sure this doesn’t make it’s way through the locker room to other members of the Sixers.

Kyle Lowry (TOR) – Missed Wednesday with a triceps injury and could be sidelined for 10 days.  Jose Calderon got the start and makes a great short term waiver wire add.

Andrea Bargnani (TOR) – Torn elbow ligament, out 1-2 months.  Tough break for Bargs owners.  Ed Davis should move into the starting lineup and is a geat waiver wire pickup.

LeBron James (MIA) – Suffered a minor shoulder injury, so check his next gametime status just to be safe.
