Feb. 8 4:54 PM PT5:54 PM MT6:54 PM CT7:54 PM ET0:54 GMT8:54 5:54 PM MST7:54 PM EST4:54 UAE (+1)01:5419:54 ET6:54 PM CTNaN:� - Faried will miss Friday's game against the Knicks due to a sprained right ankle which forced him out of Wednesday's loss in Atlanta. He could be out through the All-Star break.
Analysis: Faried left the arena on crutches Wednesday, and though X-rays were negative, being ruled out of a game a day in advance isn't a good sign. Will Barton is likely to start in his place and could be a good fantasy play. He had 31 points Monday starting or Faried, who was away for a death in the family, and scored 17 on Wednesday after getting big minutes following Faried's early departure.
