In an interview with SportsDay.com, Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban says Seth Curry can be an instant offense guy off the bench.
“He’s an instant-offense guy. He’s been in situations where only at the end of last season did he really get a chance to start and get minutes and when he got those minutes he did really well. He can shoot, obviously. He can create his own shot, quick release. He’s a knock-down 3-point shooter and we thought that was something we needed.” Curry signed with the Mavs on a two-year deal worth $6 million after an up-and-down year with the Kings last season.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable vs. the Hawks on Tuesday.
RHJ received some significant minutes while the Raptors were missing multiple starters recently, but his role has decreased again to the point that he's not worth fantasy consideration right now.
January 27, 2020, 8:56 pmPatrick McCawSG, Toronto Raptors
Patrick McCaw (nose fracture) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Hawks.
McCaw hasn't played since suffering a broken nose three games ago, but he's apparently close to a return. Check back for his status closer to Tuesday's game.
January 27, 2020, 8:51 pmZhaire SmithSG, Philadelphia Sixers
Zhaire Smith (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.
On Saturday, Smith left his season debut with the Sixers early with a sprained ankle. Smith played just three minutes in that game and he's unlikely to get significant minutes even if he makes it back for Tuesday's matchup.
January 27, 2020, 8:45 pmKevin Porter Jr.SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Porter Jr. (right ankle) has returned to Monday's game against the Pistons.
Porter Jr. looks great, having just scored seven quick points in the third quarter. He's a player to watch as the Cavs may open some more minutes for him prior to the trade deadline.
January 27, 2020, 8:38 pmJoel EmbiidC, Philadelphia Sixers
Joel Embiid (left hand surgery) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.
Embiid has missed nine games with the injury, but looks to be close to a return. Keep an eye on his status on Tuesday and be ready to activate him.
January 27, 2020, 8:19 pmKevin Porter Jr.SG-SF, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kevin Porter Jr. (right ankle) is probable to return on Monday vs. the Pistons.
That's great news that it doesn't appear to be Porter's recently injured knee that was the issue. Look for Porter to get back out there shortly.

Emmanuel Mudiay (right ankle soreness) is now listed as available for Monday's game against the Rockets.
Mudiay missed just one game with the ailment. His minutes have been under 10 per game over his last three. That won't likely change much with Mike Conley back in the rotation.

Kevin Porter Jr. limped off the court and went to the locker room during the second quarter of Monday's game against the Pistons.
Porter returned from a 10-game absence tonight, and that's not a good start. We'll find out shortly if he left due to the same left knee that just kept him out for that stretch.

Jonathan Feigen reports that the Rockets are optimistic that James Harden (left thigh contusion) will play on Wednesday against the Blazers.
That would stop Harden's missed games streak at two if he can get back by Wednesday, and to much rejoicing by those that roster him, at that.

Thon Maker went to the locker room in the first quarter of Monday's game and returned soon after with a bandage over his right eye.
It appears that Maker will play through the injury, so there's seemingly no worry here.
