NBA Player Updates 11/27: The Latest News from Around the League, Tonight's TV Schedule and More
November 27, 2015
The NBA was off yesterday, but we’ve got a ton of games to look forward to tonight. While we’re waiting on those, let’s check out some of the headline-making players from around the league in our morning wrap-up.
The Hawks’ Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver and Thabo Sefolosha are listed as probable for tonight’s game against the Grizzlies.
That’s the good news; the bad news is that Tiago Splitter has been ruled out (hip), and Kent Bazemore is questionable. Bazemore seems to be improving (ankle), but Splitter has no real timetable just yet.

On Wednesday night, Sixers C Jahlil Okafor reportedly got into an altercation with another person outside of a bar in Boston.
Okafor punched a heckler in the face, according to reports. We’ll see what kind of punishment this earns him from the league and the team.
Joffrey Lauvergne was able to practice in full yesterday, which is a great sign for his potential availability in tonight’s game. That said, odds are he probably won’t play.
If Lauvergne can’t get in there tonight, he’ll likely be good to go for tomorrow against the Mavericks if the team deems him healthy enough.
Luol Deng is battling a hamstring injury, and is questionable for tonight’s game against the Knicks.
Deng was out of action on Wednesday, and is reportedly day-to-day. If he’s not able to go, we’ll get another heavy dose of Gerald Green.
Derrick Rose, who is fighting an ankle issue, was able to practice in full yesterday.
The Bulls have a game tonight against the Pacers, and it’s looking like Rose may be available for that one. He’s had a rough start by his standards, but if he can stay healthy he should get back to his old self.
