Andrew Bogut underwent more tests on Friday, including a CT scan. Reports are now surfacing that he'll need between two and three months to recover from his left ankle fracture. This ends his fantasy hoops season for all intents and purposes, as even the early side of that timetable is into the beginning of April. Drew Gooden becomes a must-add in most formats and Ersan Ilyasova should see enough minutes moving forward to gain plenty of fantasy relevance. The Bucks will likely look to bring in a veteran free agent big to shore up the team's depth, but it won't be anyone that will challenge Gooden's minutes or have a fantasy impact.

Other status updates: Dwyane Wade (ankle) will be a game-time decision .. Carmelo Anthony (misc) will sit out the next two games (Friday and Saturday) and says his playing hurt has been a drag to the Knicks on both ends of the court .. Initial tests on Andrea Bargnani's calf revealed no significant damage but he's without a timetable at this point .. Baron Davis won't play this weekend and will be re-evaluated after a team practice on Monday .. Rajon Rondo said his wrist is about 45 percent and he doesn't look particularly close to returning. The Celtics have won three straight and are looking at some winnable games in the immediate future (Fri IND, Sun CLE, Tue @CLE, Wed TOR) .. Ray Allen (ankle) will be a game-time decision on Friday .. Al Jefferson (Achilles tendinitis) went through Friday's shootaround and will be a game-time decision .. Bobcats on Friday: Gerald Henderson (back), D.J. Augustin (foot), and D.J. White (knee) are all out, Byron Mullens (hand) is questionable .. Luol Deng (wrist) shot a lot during a Thursday workout and still appears to be targeting a Sunday return .. Vince Carter (foot) and Delonte West (hamstring) are both game-time decisions for the Mavs on Friday .. Dirk Nowitzki (knee) is still targeting Sunday for his return .. Nuggets on Friday: Arron Afflalo (groin) and Rudy Fernandez (Achilles) will play, Ty Lawson (ankle) is doubtful .. Ben Gordon's shoulder has all kinds of problems and has been bothering him since the preseason. He remains out indefinitely and looks headed for a reserve role when he does return, so I'd say his 62% ownership mark can come way down .. Luke Ridnour (knee) will return on Friday .. Nets on Friday: MarShon Brooks (Achilles), Kris Humphries (illness), and Mehmet Okur (back) are all questionable .. Spencer Hawes (Achilles) and Nikola Vucevic (knee) are both out again Friday.

Scanning the Buzz Index leaders: A starting assignment for Byron Mullens was too much, too soon. He's back to being a reserve, where he'll likely be in a better position to succeed. In 10 games as a reserve, Mullens averaged 11 points on 50-percent shooting and 4.7 boards in just 19 minutes (11.8 points, 41% FG, 5.2 boards in 27 minutes as a starter) .. I've moved on from Marreese Speights in all but the deepest formats. He's fouling enough to keep his minutes in check, there are no supporting stats to speak of, and the Grizz have been using plenty of their "small" lineups otherwise .. Devin Harris set a host of season highs on Wednesday (36 minutes, 24 points, 12 FGA, 11 FTA) with Al Jefferson out of the lineup. I'm in favor of giving him a look if you've got an expendable player, in the event he "comes around," but we need to see him do this at least once alongside Al Jeff before we start to get excited.
