Description: Packers coach Mike McCarthy made it official - QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) will not play in Week 16.
Insight: Thanks to a great comeback in Dallas and Justin Tucker\'s kicking on Monday night, the Packers control their own fate and will win the NFC North if they win their final two games. But it appears that they will have to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers with Matt Flynn under center.
Description: Sixers guard Michael Carter-Williams will play in Friday\'s game versus Brooklyn, according to 76ers beat writer Christopher Vito.
Insight: He\'s practiced fully the last two days and looks ready to go after missing seven games with a knee infection. When healthy, Carter-Williams (17.7 ppg, 7.3 apg, 5.8 rpg) has been the most productive rookie in the NBA this season.
Description: San Jose center Tomas Hertl hurt a knee against Los Angeles and will miss an unknown amount of time.
Insight: No official word, but teammate Joe Thornton he\'ll be "out a little bit," according to a CSN Bay area report. Hertl\'s production has slipped significantly since he put up seven goals and 10 points in his first eight games, but he has remained a scoring threat. He has 15 goals, 25 points and 94 SOG in 35 games this season.
Description: All signs point to Twins 24-year-old catcher Josmil Pinto getting a shot to start this season.
Insight: Pinto batted .342 in 76 at-bats last season and .314 at Triple-A Rochester. The Twins also signed veteran Kurt Suzuki to back him up and have Joe Mauer at first base, so they should be covered it Pinto doesn\'t pan out.
