|NAME||TEAM||INJURY||TIMETABLE TO RETURN||ANALYSIS|
|Kevin Durant||GSW||Calf||No Timetable||Durant escaped a major Achilles injury with a strained Calf and the Warriors will take it week by week in regards to when he'll return. He'll miss the rest of the series versus Houston. Andre Iguodala will get more minutes.|
|DeMarcus Cousins||GSW||Quad||No Timetable||Cousins WANTS to come back for 2019 NBA Playoffs but it's not looking good. He avoided surgery and until (if) he returns, Kevon Looney , Andrew Bogut and Jordan Bell should see more minutes.|
|Jusuf Nurkic||POR||Tibia/Fibula||OUT FOR THE PLAYOFFS||Nurkic is done and Enes Kanter and Zach Collins will pick up the bulk of the minutes left behind for the rest of the way.|
|D.J. Wilson||MIL||Ankle||DAY TO DAY||Wilson is dealing with a sprained Ankle but he'll have a few more days to rest it and if he needs to miss Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Ersan Ilyasova and Nikola Mirotic will see more minutes.|
|Kenneth Faried||HOU||Personal Reasons||DAY TO DAY||Faried was ruled out for game 5 of the second round and if needs to miss more time, Nene ' may pick up a few minutes. P.J. Tucker will be the biggest beneficiary.|
|OG Anunoby||TOR||Appendectomy||No Timetable||It normally takes a little under a month to get back in gear after having an Appendectomy and Norman Powell will see more playing time until he returns to action.|
|Damian Jones||GSW||Shoulder||No Timetable||We're saying there's a chance! Jones will start taking light contact in a few days and he may be able to return if the Warriors make the NBA Finals. Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell will see more minutes until he or Cousins returns.|
|Pau Gasol||MIL||Ankle||No Timetable||Gasol battled major health issues this season and he is still far away from returning to action meaning more playing time for Brook Lopez , D.J. Wilson (If Healthy) and Ersan Ilyasova .|
|Donte DiVincenzo||MIL||Heel||OUT FOR THE PLAYOFFS||DiVincenzo's season is over. Tony Snell will get more minutes and George Hill will also pick up minutes.|
|Chris Boucher||TOR||Back||DAY TO DAY||Boucher continues to get ruled out of games. His Back may not be as injured as we think but regardless, he's still not getting any love in the Raptors rotation.|
