Jason Lloyd: #Cavs starting lineup remains unchanged. Wizards' Nene (plantar fascitis) still out tonight. Beal starting for first time since wrist injury Twitter @JasonLloydABJ

Mike Bresnahan: Henry would still get the full $1.1 million due this season. He averaged 2.2 points this season after a more-impactful 10 ppg last season. Twitter @Mike_Bresnahan

Despite missing the past two practices because of respective left shoulder and right ankle injuries, both forward Carlos Boozer and Ed Davis are expected to play tonight when the Lakers (3-11) host the Memphis Grizzlies (12-2) at Staples Center. They went through shootaround and they both moved pretty well, so I take it that they will both be available tonight,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “Unless something drastically changes in the next seven to eight hours. I think they’ll be ready to play.” Boozer will start, while Davis will return back to his reserve role. Los Angeles Daily News

Carmelo Anthony wasn't at the Knicks morning shootaround and isn't expected to play in Wednesday night's game against the Mavericks due to back spasms. "He's making some progress but not enough for him to be in the game," Derek Fisher said. "It'll be day-to-day I'm sure, but probably not tonight. "He's not in a lot of comfort so really just trying to rest up and get himself better." Newsday

The Lakers lost a third player for the season Monday, when swingman Xavier Henry ruptured his left Achilles' tendon in practice. The exceptions represent half of the salaries of Nash ($9.7 million) and Randle ($3 million). The Lakers might also apply for an exception for Henry, although half of his $1.1-million contract might not be enough for the team to acquire a replacement player. Los Angeles Times
