Court Report: Marcus Thornton, Luke Ridnour sidelined

Matt Buser

Need a short-term bump with solid long-term potential? Give Kevin Seraphin a look. Add Seraphin Tuesday and you'll get three games in three days (Wed IND, Thu @DET, Fri @NJN), Seraphin has averaged 12 points on 54-percent shooting, 7 boards, and 1.5 blocks in his eight starts, and both Nene Hilario and Trevor Booker continue to be limited by plantar fasciitis. Give Jan Vesely a look in the deepest leagues, as well, as he'll also get run for as long as Nene and Booker remain inactive.

Status updates: Andrew Bynum (ankle) will be a game-time decision on Tuesday .. Marcus Thornton (calf) is out Tuesday. Terrence Williams could be in line for major minutes if Thornton joins John Salmons on the inactive list for any length of time .. Kyrie Irving (shoulder) is expected to play on Tuesday .. Dwight Howard (back spasms) and Jameer Nelson (calf) missed Tuesday shootaround and are both game-time decisions .. Ryan Anderson (ankle) is out Tuesday and day-to-day in advance of Thursday's game ..  Ray Allen (ankle) practiced on Tuesday and looks likely to play on Wednesday .. Mike Conley is still dealing with some lingering ankle soreness but will try to play on Tuesday .. Eric Gordon (knee) practiced without issues on Tuesday and will play Wednesday .. We aren't likely to get an official update on Luke Ridnour's ankle until Wednesday, but he looks likely to miss at least one game. J.J. Barea could end up starting if he's able to return from his quad injury .. Jason Kidd (groin) is out for at least the remainder of the week. Delonte West will get the starts with Rodrigue Beaubois backing him up .. George Karl called Danilo Gallinari (thumb) doubtful for Wednesday .. Nikola Pekovic reported no ill affects after playing 19 minutes on Monday. It needs to be noted that the T-Wolves play only twice the rest of the week [schedule] .. Pistons on Tuesday: Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) is out, Ben Gordon (groin) will play .. Devin Harris (ankle) did not practice Tuesday and will be a game-time decision Wednesday .. Kevin McHale likes Marcus Camby's defense and attitude enough that he'll continue to start over Samuel Dalembert.
