This week's NBA injury chart is headlined by Atlanta Hawks guard Dejounte Murray, who joins John Collins on the shelf with an injured ankle and he'll need to sit for a few weeks. After losing Devin Booker to a hamstring injury, the Phoenix Suns could be without De'Andre Ayton and Cameron Payne on the basketball court after they got hurt in the Suns previous game. On a brighter note, Charlotte Hornets guard LaMelo Ball could make his return in the Hornets next few games as he's starting to get "questionable" designation's heading into games.
