blake-griffin-jersey49 Looking Ahead • Bradley Beal sprained his left ankle late in Sunday's game. X-rays were negative, but we won't have a good read on his status for this week until he sees how much it swelled up overnight. Check for updates before setting your weekly lineups. If Beal misses Wednesday's game, Martell Webster, who had 16 points and 3 3s Sunday should get a bump in production. • LeBron James tweaked his left knee Sunday, and though he finished the game, he will have the joint examined Monday morning. It sounds like he should be all right. • Danny Granger left Sunday's game after just eight minutes due to soreness in his troublesome knee. He hasn't even reached the 19-minute mark in any of his five games thus far and has been thoroughly useless statistically. There is really no sense in holding onto him if there are other upside options on your waiver wire. • Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are battling ankle injuries; both skipped Friday's game as a result. Enes Kanter went off with 23 points (10-12 FG) and 22 boards, as Derrick Favors battled foul trouble. It sounds like both starters are getting closer to action, but it's not clear if they will be ready to ball Monday night. Kanter and Favors will be solid plug-in options if Big Al and Millsap sit again. • Kyrie Irving could return from a three-game absence Monday after testing his knee out in practice Sunday. The Cavs play four times this week, so he may well get in three games even if he isn't ready to roll against the Knicks tonight. • Since Anthony Davis didn't take part in the contact part of Sunday's practice, I'm skeptical about seeing the rookie back in action Monday evening. He's dealing with a bone bruise in his left shoulder and clearly his body is not holding up to the grind of an NBA campaign. Ryan Anderson started in place of Davis Friday and had 19 points and 13 boards. • This weekend, Andrew Bynum finally admitted that he may not play this season and that surgery may be an option. In other words, if you are one of the 45.7 percent of teams in ESPN leagues that owns Bynum it is officially time to move on. • There is a pretty good chance that Serge Ibaka will not be available when the Oklahoma City Thunder host the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday evening after essentially punching Blake Griffin in a bad spot Sunday. Although Homer Simpson might see the humor in that, David Stern surely won't. Still, the Thunder have a four-game week, so Ibaka should be in for at least three of those games. Fastbreak Player of the Night

There are only three games Tuesday evening, so we don't have many options from which to choose. Fortunately, one of those games is the aforementioned battle between the Lakers and Thunder, so there are a number of stud options available. I would look outside of that contest to fill one of the forward spots with Paul Pierce against the Philadelphia 76ers, though.
