News: Evans will miss Monday's game against Minnesota due to soreness in his lower abdominal area.
Impact: The rookie has recently been working as the backup to Milos Teodosic at point guard. The Clippers are already pretty thin in the backcourt with Patrick Beverley and Austin Rivers out with injuries, so expect Lou Williams and Teodosic to log heavy minutes against the Timberwolves.
News: Wall will start Monday's game at Dallas despite dealing with a migraine headache during the day.
Impact: Wall did sit out the morning shootaround, so the possibility exists that his minutes and productivity could be affected. The four-time All-Star will still be hard for fantasy owners to sit, as he's averaged 23.8 points, 10.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.7 steals over his last six games.
News: Gasol won't play Tuesday against the Cavaliers due to a sprained right wrist.

News: Monroe will replace Tyson Chandler in the starting lineup Monday in his return to Milwaukee.
Impact: Since being acquired from the Bucks on Nov. 7, Monroe has started 11 games and averaged 11.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3 assists in those outings.
News: Wall (illness) is now considered a game-time decision for Monday's matchup with the Mavericks, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Impact: Wall missed Monday's morning shootaround with a migraine, however it was initally reported that he would be able to play. The change in his status indicates that the migraine is likely worse than the Wizards thought, making him a risky fantasy option for Monday, as even if is able to go, he likely won't be 100 percent. If Wall is unable to play, Tim Frazier and Bradley Beal will likely see increased run.
News: Kuzma suffered a finger injury in Sunday's win over the Knicks, though he is not on the injury report for Tuesday's visit from the Celtics.

News: Updating a previous note, Dragic (knee) has officially been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Rockets.
Impact: The Heat initially deemed Dragic questionable, but the expectation all along was that he'd miss a second consecutive contest while battling a bruised knee. With Tyler Johnson (ankle) also ruled out, expect Wayne Ellington and Josh Richardson to again play big minutes in the backcourt, with Derrick Walton set to contribute off the bench.
News: Dragic (knee) is not expected to play Monday against Houston, Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Impact: Dragic was held out of Saturday's game against the Hornets with a bruised knee, and at this point all signs point to him missing a second straight contest, though the Heat have not made an official call on his status. With Tyler Johnson also expected to sit out, Wayne Ellington and Josh Richardson will likely be set for big minutes, while Derrick Walton, who played 21 minutes off the bench Saturday, should again have an increased role as a reserve.
News: Butler (knee) will not play Monday against the Clippers, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports.
Impact: A knee injury kept Butler out of Saturday's win over the Raptors, and the same ailment will now cost him a second game. Butler should be considered day-to-day until further notice, and the likes of Nemanja Bjelica and Shabazz Muhammand should each pick up increased minutes again Monday, with Bjelica likely to remain in the starting five.
