Wizards' John Wall (knee) no longer using crutches

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall "no longer needs crutches and shows no visible hitch in his walk."

What It Means:

Wall underwent a scope two weeks ago and is expected to be out another 4-to-6 weeks. He's hoping to return within that timetable, after missing out on Sunday's All-Star Game appearance. Wall said, "It might be longer but I don't know. I haven't got to that point." Until he returns, Tomas Satoransky will start at the point for Washington.

Our models project Wall to average 17.3 points, 7.2 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game over the remainder of the season.

Tiago Splitter announces retirement from NBA

Free agent center Tiago Splitter announced his retirement from the NBA on Sunday.

What It Means:

At 33, Splitter was hoping to find a team prior to the season. Nothing ever happened and he's remained out of the league working as a reporter. Splitter last played for the Philadelphia 76ers, while he was best known for his five years with the San Antonio Spurs.

Over 355 games, Splitter averaged 7.9 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game in his 7-year career.

Minnesota's Jimmy Butler doesn't appear in Sunday's All-Star Game

Minnesota Timberwolves guard/forward Jimmy Butler did not play in Sunday's All-Star Game.

What It Means:

As his team, Team Stephen, fell 148-145 to Team LeBron, Butler remained on the bench. Original reports suggested that Butler was under the weather, but he addressed it after the game saying, "This Timberwolves season is very, very important to me." He probably requested to be left out of the rotation for rest purposes.

Through 55 games, Butler ranks 9th in the league in minutes (2,052) and 1st in the entire NBA in minutes per game (37.3). We project him to play 39 minutes per game over the remainder of the 2017-18 season.

Cavs' LeBron James scores 29, wins third All-Star Game MVP

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James scored 29 points and captured his third All-Star Game MVP as Team LeBron defeated Team Stephen 148-145 on Sunday night.

What It Means:

As promised, the game was much more intense -- particularly on the defensive end of the floor. The contest was capped off by a great defensive effort from both LeBron and Kevin Durant, as they trapped Stephen Curry on an inbounds play with seconds remaining. James' defense and his peripheral stats -- 10 rebounds, 8 assists and 1 steal -- helped him to capture the hardware for the first time since 2008.

If you played the All-Star Game slate, James returned 51 FanDuel points for you. Counting that, it's his 5th straight 50-FanDuel-point game.

Russell Westbrook joins starting lineup for Team LeBron Sunday in place of DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles)

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook will move into the starting lineup for Team LeBron in Sunday's All Star Game against Team Stephen.

What It Means:

With DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) out for the season, Team LeBron will tab Westbrook to join the lineup with LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis, and Kevin Durant. Westbrook has been a machine over his last three All Star Games, averaging 37.7 points per game and grabbing MVP honors in 2015 and 2016.

Westbrook is averaging 54.3 FanDuel points per game this season.
