Before being injured, Bell had reached double figures and made 14 of 24 3-point shots in six straight games.

Howard replaced Bell in the starting lineup in losses to San Antonio and Minnesota. He finished with 12 points in 29 minutes against the Spurs and a season-high 19 points in 32 minutes against the Timberwolves.

Because Howard played so well, there’s a chance Corbin will start Howard even if Bell can play. Another option would be starting Howard and Bell and bringing Gordon Hayward off the bench.

"We had a couple of guys hurt going into the break," Corbin said. "We’ll make sure everybody is healthy and then we’ll make an adjustment and see how it helps us."
