ANALYSIS

Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL Ankle DAY TO DAY The sprain isn't bad, but it may cost The Greek Freak another game this week and if he can't go, Nikola Mirotic will pick up more minutes and everyone active picks up usage. Spot start another Buck if he's out.
LeBron James LAL Groin DAY TO DAY It's clear that James Groin hasn't been 100 percent and this could cost him another game this week. If he stays out, Kyle Kuzma becomes the top scoring option while Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Mike Muscala add usage.
Kevin Love CLE Back DAY TO DAY Love missed his last game w/ a Back injury and if he has to miss more time, Cedi Osman and Ante Zizic will be handling the front court by themselves w/ Tristan Thompson , Larry Nance Jr. and John Henson hurt.
Victor Oladipo IND Knee OUT FOR THE SEASON Oladipo will miss the rest of the season after tearing tendons in his Knee. Tyreke Evans (if active) will see a lot more playing time and Cory Joseph and Aaron Holiday should see some more love in the rotation. 
John Wall WSH Achilles OUT FOR THE SEASON Wall had surgery to fix his Achilles and he'll miss the rest of the 2018 season. Bradley Beal becomes the Wizards top usage option and Tomas Satoransky will see a ton of minutes for the rest of the way.
Jrue Holiday NO Abs 1-2 Weeks Holiday could be out longer than the next couple of weeks and Frank Jackson has picked up the ball and produced. Elfrid Payton will see more usage. Holiday could be shutdown.
Zach LaVine CHI Thigh DAY TO DAY LaVine is now dealing w/ a minor Thigh injury and if he has to sit out Wednesday's game, Shaq Harrison and Ryan Arcidiacono will play more.
Kristaps Porzingis DAL Knee OUT FOR THE SEASON Mark Cuban says Porzingis will not play this season. Dirk Nowitzki and Dwight Powell will get more playing time down the stretch. 
Jeff Teague MIN Foot DAY TO DAY Teague has missed his last four games w/ a Foot injury and if he misses more time Derrick Rose (if healthy) will be the primary fill in option and he'll pick up a ton of shots. Tyus Jones will see more playing time.
Larry Nance Jr. CLE Ribs DAY TO DAY Nance could return on Wednesday. If he has to continue to sit, Ante Zizic and Kevin Love (if healthy) will see extended minutes. Cedi Osman will be getting more plays called for him.
Brandon Ingram LAL Arm OUT FOR THE SEASON Ingram's season is over. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Josh Hart will see more playing time. LeBron James usage goes up even more even though his minutes will be taken down a notch.
Kyle Lowry TOR Ankle  DAY TO DAY The Ankle is still bothering Lowry as he may need to sit for another game or two to heal it. Fred VanVleet and Jeremy Lin will pick up minutes if Lowry can't go. Marc Gasol 's usage will go up. 
CJ McCollum POR Knee No Timetable He could return in a week to 10 days from now but the Blazers may want to be conservative and hold him out until the Playoffs. His status is up in the air. Rodney Hood and Seth Curry will pick up minutes.
Jaren Jackson Jr. MEM Quad No Timetable Deep bruises take a long time to heal and we don't know when we'll see Jackson back on the court again. Ivan Rabb and Joakim Noah will continue to benefit by seeing more minutes and usage. 
DeMarcus Cousins GSW Ankle DAY TO DAY Cousins has missed his last two games w/ an injured Ankle and there's a good chance he returns for his next game. If he has to sit, Kevon Looney will play more.

Otto Porter Jr. CHI Shoulder DAY TO DAY Porter has a strained Rotator Cuff and it's surprising not to see him ruled out games in advance. He missed his last game and it's not looking good for this one. More minutes are coming for Shaq Harrison.
Wendell Carter Jr. CHI Thumb No Timetable Carter is not close to returning and Robin Lopez will be the primary fill in option. Lauri Markkanen will also help fill the void. Can't see Carter coming back this season.
