Jose Calderon Headshot

An MRI confirmed that Jose Calderón suffered a right hamstring strain. He is expected to be out for 2-4 weeks.

Calderon will be out for up to a month with the hamstring strain as the injuries for the Lakers continue to mount. D'Angelo Russell is currently out with a knee injury, so Marcelo Huertas expects to slide into the starting lineup until Russell comes back. Calderon's injury also opens the doors for Brandon Ingram to see more touches in the offense.

Gary Harris Headshot

Gary Harris will not play Monday.

It was recently reported that Harris is "ahead of schedule" in his return from a foot injury. Will Barton will continue to see additional minutes in Harris's absence. His activity should increase over the next few days and then we'll have a better understanding on his return. For now, he's worth holding since he's close to a return and could provide you a nice bump in three pointers.

Nikola Jokic Headshot

Nikola Jokic will not play Monday.

Head Coach Michael Malone admitted recently that the team will be cautious with Jokic and his wrist injury. He'll be out for the next couple of games but has put up solid numbers to start the season. He's worth holding onto if you own Jokic. Kenneth Faried will see extended minutes while Jokic is out.

Doug McDermott Headshot

Doug McDermott has been assigned to the D-League.

McDermott was recently cleared for contact over the weekend and will practice with the Bulls D-League team Monday and Tuesday. There's a chance he could return Thursday but this weekend seems like a more likely scenario.

Tyreke Evans Headshot

Tyreke Evans (knee, calf) will not play Monday.

Evans did not play on Sunday as he is still dealing with knee/calf injuries. Upon his return, Evans is expected to be on a minutes restriction of 15 minutes per game for the first several games. If you're holding onto Evans, it will be a few more weeks until he gives you considerable value.

Nerlens Noel Headshot

Nerlens Noel will not join the team on the trip to Memphis and New Orleans.

Noel still does not have a return date set but he will be out at least through December 11th. Upon his return, he will be rejoining a front court that is loaded with talent right now, which will limit his potential.
