Scott Agness: Myles Turner is questionable for Sunday in Orlando. Goga Bitadze (concussion), Jeremy Lamb (ankle), Sumner and Oladipo are out. Two-way guys are in Fort Wayne. pic.twitter.com/ot2rDBa4AP
Rod Beard: #Pacers center Myles Turner is questionable tonight vs. #Pistons. Victor Oladipo, Jeremy Lamb, Goga Bitadze and Edmund Sumner all are OUT. #DFS
Scott Agness: Another game, another Pacers injury. Center Goga Bitadze has been diagnosed with a concussion and is ruled out of Friday’s game vs Pistons. Jeremy Lamb (left ankle sprain) will miss his second straight game. Myles Turner is questionable.
J. Michael Falgoust: Jeremy Lamb (hip) practiced Tues for the first time since being injured in the opener. Should be able to play v Nets on Wed for #Pacers
J. Michael Falgoust: With Lamb (hip) OUT again, Sumner will make his 2nd start #PacersPistons
J. Michael Falgoust: Jeremy Lamb (hip pointer) did not practice today. But not ruled out for Mon for #PacersPistons …. no one else sat. Bitadze’s knee is fine
Scott Agness: Jeremy Lamb (hip pointer) won’t play tonight at Cavs. Edmond Sumner will start.
J. Michael Falgoust: Lamb (hip pointer) is questionable for Saturday v Cavs #Pacers
Rick Bonnell: Jeremy Lamb out rest of game with a right ankle sprain.
Rick Bonnell: JP Macura flew to Charlotte for the brief practice today to make sure he is up to speed on Hornets systems, so that he can be available at wing positions in response to Jeremy Lamb’s hamstring injury.
Rod Boone: James Borrego said Cody is going to be out for a while. Not quite sure how long Jeremy will be out due to tricky nature of hamstring injuries. FWIW, just saw Lamb leaving locker room and he wasn’t walking overly gingerly. But walking on a hammy and running are 2 different things.
Rod Boone: Final: #Hornets 125, Magic 100: Biggest thing now will be how long Jeremy Lamb and Cody Zeller are out. With a lengthy 6-game West Coast trip on tap after Wednesday’s home game vs. Mavs, it’s not exactly the most ideal time.
Rod Boone: So that’s a hamstring injury for Jeremy Lamb and a fractured right hand for Cody Zeller. #Hornets head into the new year banged up and down two starters. Not exactly a Happy New Year’s eve.
Rick Bonnell: Frank Kaminsky (sprained ankle) and Jeremy Lamb (shin contusion) available to play. With Batum out, I’d think Lamb starts, with Dwayne Bacon his backup.
Rick Bonnell: And the hits keep coming: Jeremy Lamb out for the second half with a shin contusion.
Jerry Zgoda: Steve Clifford says he thinks Jeremy Lamb and his hamstring will play tonight vs Wolves
Rick Bonnell: Jeremy Lamb strained right hamstring. Will NOT return.

Chris Vivlamore: Jeremy Lamb is out for Hornets tonight vs. Hawks.
Rick Bonnell: The @Charlotte Hornets say Jeremy Lamb will miss one to two weeks with a left hamstring strain.

Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love is on this quick two-game trip with his teammates so he can continue to rehab a high-grade strained right calf, but the five-time All-Star is “unlikely” to return until after the NBA All-Star break, league sources tell cleveland.com.
Given the Cavs only have two games remaining — Monday in Houston and Wednesday at home against the Indiana Pacers — before a needed nine-day break, sources said the team doesn’t see the upside in pushing it. They want to use the extra days to get his calf better, so he can be 100 percent for the Second Half.
The Brooklyn Nets’ Kevin Durant will still serve as an NBA All-Star Game captain despite a hamstring injury that will keep him from playing. Durant and fellow All-Star Game captain LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers will each draft a roster out of the pool of selected All-Stars. The All-Star draft will air on TNT on March 4. It remained unclear whether Durant will travel to Atlanta for the game on March 7.
A Knicks official said Rivers was at the Garden, but in the back getting treatment for a sore ankle. Rivers was not listed on the pregame injury report submitted to the NBA. On the box score, Rivers was listed with a DNP-Coach’s Decision. Earlier this week, Rivers said of his situation: “I can’t control if I’m traded today, tomorrow or the next day. What I can control is how I am as a player.’’
His father, Mychal Thompson, believes Klay’s basketball lifespan could run until he’s 40 years old. “I said, if you really want to, you can play till you’re 40 years of age, but the key to that is you have to take care of your body, as you go into your 30s,” Mychal said, recounting to NBC Sports Bay Area a conversation he had with Klay.
That doesn’t mean he’s a finished product. There’s a reason the Raptors signed him with G League intentions and not for the NBA roster. The 10-day contract (about $82,000) affords them six games to see how he can fit and progress in their environment. It’s an audition by another name, and not the first time the Raptors have used a 10-day to get a 905 look at a prospect. “This gives us a chance to get Donta down in our system, teach him our ins and outs and the way we operate our offence, our defence, our schemes, and see how he looks running those,” general manager Chad Sanders said. “With Tampa just down the street, it’s a chance for us to get him out there and get some reps and get a chance to evaluate him for the big club.”
Callie Caplan: Luka, on ABC, asked about recent comparisons to Larry Bird’s game: “More, more games to go. A long time before you can compare me to Larry Bird. I just want to keep hooping, have fun playing basketball.”
