The Thunder have assigned Reggie Williams to the Tulsa 66ers of the D-League.

Williams hasn't played in the Thunder's two games since being called up from the D-League, so his return to Tulsa comes as no surprise. The 66ers have a game in which Williams will play on Tuesday and it looks as if Williams' fantasy value will be limited to D-League fantasy leagues for the 2013-14 season.
Derrick Rose (knee surgery) is hoping he'll be healthy in time for this summer's World Cup of Basketball.
"If my leg is feeling healthy and I'm there, I'm all in," Rose said about Team USA. "Of course I want to play for that team. Playing for that team [in the summer of 2010], I think it helped the year I won MVP, just getting in a groove. So I'm excited if I am able to play in it." Like the Bulls, fantasy owners who own the 25-year-old in dynasty leagues are probably cringing at the thought of Rose risking injury in anything but an NBA game. However, Rose still hasn't been cleared to practice by the Bulls, so this could be a bit of wishful thinking by the former MVP.
Brendan Haywood (fractured foot) may not return to the court this season.

With just 18 games left in the season, Haywood's chances to return this season decrease by the day. Two weeks after his targeted return date, Brendan Haywood still can't do anything weight-bearing on basketball court, according to Bobcats' coach Steve Clifford. Even if Haywood does manage to rehab in time to take the court before the regular season ends, he would likely be limited to around 10 minutes per game and would provide minimal fantasy value.
