    Greg Oden updated to questionable for Wed.  

    Greg Oden - C - POR - Mar. 17 - 4:35 p.m. ET  

    Greg Oden (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game at Indiana.

    This is definitely a good sign, and Oden is probably eager to play in front of his home-state fans. He'll be a game-time decision, and is guaranteed to be rusty.

  • great info up got here, GF. I just done done eating about 2 Lbs of corned beef & I'd getting ready to knock down my 5th coffee of day...lol..

    Good luck, hope you kill them again tonight & enjoy yourself on this holiday.

  • Ronnie Brewer - G/F - Jazz

    Ronnie Brewer will not be in the Jazz's starting lineup on Tuesday because he was late to the team's shootaround.

    Kyle Korver could start in his place, and it's up to Jerry Sloan whether Brewer will play at all. This was his first infraction of the season (he said he "just overslept"). Mar. 17

    Andre Iguodala - G/F - 76ers

    Andre Miller (calf) and Andre Iguodala (back) sat out the 76ers practice on Monday, but both are expected to play on Tuesday.

    The Sixers take on the Lakers in Los Angeles, so they'll certainly need their two best players on the court. Mar. 17

    Zach Randolph - F/C - Clippers

    Zach Randolph will play for the Clippers on Tuesday after missing the past two games following his father's death.

    Randolph should be a solid contributor whether or not he moves directly into the starting lineup -- Marcus Camby had been starting at power forward. Expect Z-Bo, Camby and Chris Kaman to split frontcourt minutes the rest of the way. Mar. 17
