</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Bynum has been healthy for a few days now but doesn't appear close to the rotation. With Ben Gordon (shoulder) also practicing Monday, Bynum is even further away from a meaningful role.

</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Jason Kidd (calf) did not practice Monday.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Kidd was said to be targeting Wednesday for his return, but that's far from a certainty now. Although the Mavs are on a three-game losing streak, their No. 1 priority is to get Kidd rest and get him back to 100 percent. "His status is, we'll let you know," coach Rick Carlisle said. Delonte West and Roddy Beaubois will fill in if the 38-year-old Kidd misses more time.

clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Orlando's exact plans for Nelson Monday are unclear, as coach Stan Van Gundy earlier hinted at limited minutes following a week-plus without conditioning. Before going down, Nelson was averaging just 8.1 points and 5.1 assists in 28.9 minutes. Chris Duhon will head back to the bench once Nelson is up to speed.

</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Raymond Felton (foot) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Thunder.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Felton sustained a left foot sprain in Saturday's win over the Nuggets. He was spotted at shootaround with a bandage on the foot and no sneakers on. Jamal Crawford will start at point guard and figures to push for 30 minutes of volume shooting. Nicolas Batum will also see a ton of minutes as the primary defender on Russell Westbrook.

clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">It's Nash's shooting shoulder, but there's no real concern here. Nash will be 38 Tuesday and is therefore sore all over. He's still playing 31.1 minutes per game and averaging 14.5 points with 9.9 assists.

Mychel Thompson has been starting at shooting guard, but has been predictably outplayed by Ramon Sessions and Alonzo Gee. Daniel Gibson (neck) is also expected back Tuesday.

</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Daniel Gibson (neck) will play in Tuesday's game against the Heat.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Gibson has missed four straight games after a scary soft tissue infection caused him to be hospitalized. However, he's stepping back into an excellent situation for production. Anthony Parker (back) remains out and Mychel Thompson has flopped as the starting shooting guard. Gibson is making 1.7 3-pointers per game on the year despite averaging just 25.1 minutes per game.

clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Nene won't play in Monday's game against the Rockets due to his nagging left heel strain.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Nene played in all three legs of the Nuggets' back-to-back-to-back and the Nuggets are likely regretting that now. He's had foot and Achilles issues for much of the year and this marks his fifth game missed already. With starting center Timofey Mozgov (ankle) also out, Al Harrington and Kosta Koufos are going to get all the playing time they can handle Monday.

clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Kevin Love has been suspended two games without pay for stomping on Luis Scola Saturday.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">The NBA says Love has been suspended for "driving his foot into the upper body and face" of Scola. Although he contends it was an accident, the video replay clearly suggests otherwise. Love will miss Tuesday's game against the Kings and Wednesday's game in Memphis before before returning for Friday's game against the Mavericks. Michael Beasley and Derrick Williams are prime candidates to pick up minutes.

</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Baron Davis (back) has had another setback with his recovery and is out indefinitely.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">The Knicks are not expecting Davis anytime before the Feb. 23 All-Star break. He's not practicing, leading to concerns that his conditioning will further deteriorate. Even if Davis does make it back onto the floor this season, he remains a poor bet to sustain health at age 32. Jeremy Lin has been installed as the Knicks' starting point guard.

</td></tr><tr><td class="bodyCopy">Updating a previous item, Elton Brand (thumb) will not play in Monday's game against the Lakers.</td></tr><tr><td>
clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Brand said he is feeling better and was headed for a game-time call, but the Sixers are squashing that idea. They want his shooting thumb to get back to 100 percent and they can also use this break as a way to get his 32-year-old legs some rest. Consider Brand questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, with Lavoy Allen drawing another start Monday.

clear.gif
</td></tr><tr><td class="vaLink">Ginobili has missed 20 games since fracturing his left (shooting) hand on Jan. 2. He's been getting shots up for about a week now and it sounds like he's going with the Spurs as they embark on their "rodeo" trip. Ginobili will quickly step back in as the starting shooting guard, a role he averaged 17.4 points, 2.8 3-pointers and 1.2 steals in before getting hurt.
