Elfrid Payton (fractured finger) is listed as probable ahead of Monday's game.
Payton underwent surgery after fracturing a finger on his left hand back in November. He seems unlikely to move right into the starting lineup upon returning, but should get that job eventually. Tim Frazier and Frank Jackson will lose minutes at the point guard spot while we'll likely see Solomon Hill and/or Darius Miller moved back to the bench. Payton shouldn't be on waivers anywhere.
