NBA Injuries:

Domantas SabonisPF/CSACKnee20-MarAprilSabonis banged knees on Sunday night and now he'll miss the next couple of weeks of action. With him on the shelf and Richaun Holmes out for personal reasons, Trey Lyles and Chimezie Metu should see more minutes.
Stephen CurryGGSWFoot16-MarLate March/Early Apr.Curry will need a couple of weeks to recover and while he's out Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins will help bring up the ball with others contributing in that area. Wiggins and Klay Thompson will certainly see more shots.
De'Aaron FoxPGSACHand16-MarDay To DayFox has a sore hand and if he needs more time to recover, Donte DiVincenzo and Davion Mitchell will help run the point and Harrison Barnes will see more shots.
Isaiah JacksonPF/CINDConcussion15-MarNo TimetableJackson is in the league's concussion protocol and while he's out, Goga Bitadze and Jalen Smith along with Oshae Brissett will help out up front for the Pacers.
Danuel House Jr.FUTAKnee14-MarDay To DayHouse is dealing with a bone bruise in his knee and while he's out, Royce O'Neale and Nickeil Alexander-Walker will get more time with the ball until he and Bojan Bogdanovic return.
Jaden McDanielsFMINAnkle14-MarLate March/Early Apr.McDaniels is dealing with a pretty badly sprained ankle and he is set to get it looked at in the next week and that'll determine his future, but for now, Jarred Vanderbilt and Taurean Prince will help fill the void at power forward.
Jalen SuggsGORLAnkle13-MarDay To DayWith Suggs off the floor for now, Cole Anthony will see more time with the ball and R.J. Hampton will help him in the backcourt. Gary Harris and Terrence Ross will help fill the void until Suggs returns.
Rajon RondoPGCLEAnkle12-MarDay To DayThe Cavs simply can't shake the injuries and Rondo is out again with a sprained ankle. It will be up to Darius Garland, Caris LeVert and Cedi Osman to run the point.
Dean WadeF/CCLEKnee12-MarMid-AprilIf Wade makes it back to the court, it'll be in the final regular-season game or two, if that, regarding he beats his timetable. Jarrett Allen (when healthy), Evan Mobley, Kevin Love and Lauri Markkanen will man the frontcourt fort in Cleveland.
Keita Bates-DiopFSASBack12-MarDay To DayBates-Diop isn't really part of the Spurs rotation as he sits behind Keldon Johnson, Zach Collins and Josh Richardson and when he's out he's looking at fewer than 10 minutes per game.
DeAndre' BembryFMILKnee12-MarOUT FOR THE SEASONBembry is out for the rest of the season and Pat Connaughton and Jordan Nwora will get more playing time behind Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Bojan BogdanovicFUTACalf12-MarDay To DayBogdanovic is dealing with a strained calf and if he needs more time off of the floor, Royce O'Neale and Nickeil Alexander-Walker should pick up more shots. Donovan Mitchell will continue seeing a small uptick in them as well.
John CollinsPF/CATLFoot/Finger11-MarLate March/Early Apr.Collins is dealing with multiple injuries with upper and lower body parts and all we know is that he'll be out for the next couple of weeks, but don't be surprised if that timetable is lengthened. Danilo Gallinari and De'Andre Hunter should see more minutes and shots.
Eric GordonSG/SFHOUIllness11-MarDay To DayGordon's been sick and has been out and we're waiting to see if Gordon will return to action this year, but while he's out Jalen Green and Garrison Mathews will take more shots.
Cam ReddishSG/SFNYKShoulder10-MarOUT FOR THE SEASONReddish injured his shoulder and is done for the year. Evan Fournier and Alec Burks will see more shots and time with the ball for the rest of the way. Kemba Walker remains away from the team.
Hamidou DialloSG/SFDETFinger9-MarNo TimetableWe don't know when of if Diallo will return to action this year, but while he's shelved, Saddiq Bey will see more usage and Kelly Olynyk should see more shots as well.
Zeke NnajiPF/CDENKnee9-MarNo TimetableWe haven't been given any news regarding when we should expect Nnaji to return to action, but while he's out JaMychal Green and Jeff Green will help Nikola Jokic defend the paint.
Udoka AzubuikeCUTAAnkle9-MarDay To DayAzubuike has an injured ankle and even when he's healthy, Rudy Gobert and Hassan Whiteside take up all of the minutes at center and he's just a reserve at this point.
Romeo LangfordSGSASHamstring7-MarDay To DayLangford is dealing with a strained hamstring and if he needs more time to recover, Josh Richardson should see even more playing time along with Lonnie Walker IV.
LaMarcus AldridgePF/CBKNHip6-MarLate March/Early Apr.Durant takes up a lot of power forward minutes now that he's back and Andre Drummond and Nicolas Claxton will play the center minutes. James Johnson should see more run as long as Aldridge is out.
Brandon IngramFNOPHamstring6-MarDay To DayIngram has been "sick" (who knows?) and has been out with an injured hamstring. Herbert Jones will see more action on the floor and Jonas Valanciunas should see more plays called for him in the post, while CJ McCollum becomes the prioritized scorer.
Jarrett AllenCCLEFinger6-MarNo TimetableAllen broke his finger and we don't know when we'll see him back on the floor again. Evan Mobley and Kevin Love will have to fill the void and Lauri Markkanen should see more shots until he returns.
Anfernee SimonsGPORKnee5-MarLate March/Early Apr.Simons is apparently close to getting his knee inspected to see if he's recovered, but the Blazers aren't going anywhere and it wouldn't be surprising to see him get shut down for the rest of the way. Brandon Williams and Kris Dunn will help bring up the ball until Simons returns.
Malachi FlynnPGTORHamstring4-MarDay To DayIt looks like there's light at the end of the tunnel as according to recent reports Flynn could be back in the next few games. Until he returns, Armoni Brooks and maybe even Scottie Barnes will have to help bring up the ball more.
Cameron JohnsonFPHCQuad4-MarDay To DayJohnson is dealing with an injured quad and if he needs more time to recover, Jae Crowder and Torrey Craig will see more shots and minutes. Mikal Bridges should see a few more looks as well.
Gary Payton IIGGSWKnee3-MarDay To DayReports are indicating that Payton is getting closer to returning to action and with Stephen Curry out, the Warriors can use his help playmaking along with Jordan Poole. Klay Thompson should bring up the ball a bit as well.
Frank JacksonGDETBack1-MarLate March/Early Apr.Jackson being out gives Killian Hayes more playing time and Cade Cunningham can always help bring up the ball for them. We still aren't too sure when Jackson will return to action.
Chris DuarteSG/SFINDToe28-FebDay To DayDuarte is still dealing with an issue with his toe. If he needs more time off, Buddy Hield and Lance Stephenson will see more shots. Tyrese Haliburton also benefits as well. Haliburton and Brogdon will handle most of the offense for the rest of the way.
Derrick FavorsCOKCBack24-FebDay To DayFavors is dealing with a very sore back and as he continues to miss games. Isaiah Roby continues to play more minutes and we've seen his production increase noticeably as of late. Darius Bazley will also continue to help out in the post.
Josh GiddeyG/SFOKCHip24-FebNo TimetableThe Thunder will be very cautious with how they handle Giddey who's dealing with an injured hip and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will need to help provide more offense by playing off the ball more. That's where Tre Mann can continue to come in and help set him up. We should know about Giddey's future in the next week.
Jusuf NurkicCPORFoot16-FebLate March/Early Apr.The Blazers are running out of options in general as they continue to get damaged all over and with Nurkic likely missing another few weeks, Justise Winslow, Trendon Watford and Drew Eubanks will help fill the void up front for Portland.
OG AnunobyFTORFinger16-FebLate March/Early Apr.This is very tricky because Anunoby at one point looked like he was going to suit up a few times since injuring his finger and now we're hoping to see him before the end of March as he recovers from a fractured finger. Precious Achiuwa and Chris Boucher will see more minutes and Scottie Barnes will take more shots.
Chris PaulPGPHXThumb16-FebDay To DayThere are reports that Chris Paul could be returning to the Suns lineup in the next few games which would shatter the original timetable given to him for his thumb injury. Once he returns, Cameron Payne will back him up.
Anthony DavisPF/CLALFoot16-FebLate March/Early Apr.Davis is dealing with a sprained foot and is starting to get back on the court in practice, but he'll need a little more time to recover. Until he returns, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Trevor Ariza will help guard the post with a little involvement from Dwight Howard.
Kenrich WilliamsFOKCKnee14-FebNo TimetableWe haven't seen Williams on the floor in over a month and haven't been given much information regarding his return. Darius Bazley will be the Thunder's primary power forward and post player. Aleksej Pokusevski will toggle between small forward and power forward.
Ty JeromeGOKCHip14-FebOUT FOR THE SEASONWith Ty Jerome sidelined, the Thunder have needed Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to toggle between point guard and shooting guard. Tre Mann has been able to draw starts with Jerome out. His season is finished.
Luguentz DortSG/SFOKCShoulder12-FebOUT FOR THE SEASONDort's season has concluded after having shoulder surgery and Aleksej Pokusevski will see more run at small forward. More plays will be designed for Darius Bazley and Tre Mann.
Norman PowellSG/SFLACFoot10-FebNo TimetablePowell suffered a broken foot, Terance Mann's value is safe, and Marcus Morris shouldn't lose the shots he originally was going to when the Clippers traded for Powell and Robert Covington. We don't know if Powell will return to action this season.
Nerlens NoelPF/CNYKFoot7-FebNo TimetableNoel continues to miss games and until he returns from his injury, Obi Toppin will back up Mitchell Robinson. Julius Randle and Taj Gibson can rotate in at center as well.
Gordon HaywardSG/SFCHAAnkle7-FebNo TimetableWe don't know when Hayward will take the floor again, but apparently his workouts are getting more intense. While he's out, Kelly Oubre Jr. and Cody Martin should will see more playing time. Terry Rozier will continue seeing more shots.
Mike MuscalaPF/COKCAnkle4-FebNo TimetableWith Muscala out, Derrick Favors (when healthy) and Isaiah Roby will handle the center position with Roby having the bigger ceiling moving forward.
Eric BledoeGPORAchilles31-JanNo TimetableWe don't know how long it will be until Bledsoe returns to action but Anfernee Simons (when healthy) and Brandon Williams will run the point for the rest of the season. Kris Dunn will get some run running the point as well.
Joe InglesSG/FPORTorn ACL30-JanOUT FOR THE SEASONIngles' season is over after he tore his ACL and he was traded to Portland post-injury. Josh Hart and Justise Winslow will see a lot of involvement in the Blazers' offense the rest of the way.
Bradley BealSG/SFWASWrist29-JanOUT FOR THE SEASONBeal is out for the rest of the season after having season-ending wrist surgery. Kristaps Porzingis takes over as the prioritized scorer and Kyle Kuzma, Deni Avdija and Raul Neto will certainly be taking a lot more shots.
Jeremiah Robinson-EarlF/COKCFoot28-JanLate March/Early Apr.Robinson-Earl has an injured foot and while he's out, Darius Bazley and Isaiah Roby will see more shots in the Thunder's offense.
Tim Hardaway Jr.SG/SFDALFoot25-JanNo TimetableHardaway had surgery on his foot and we don't know when we'll see him take the court again. Jalen Brunson and Reggie Bullock will see more minutes and time with the ball. Luka Doncic will take more command of the offense as well.
Terence DavisSG/SFSACWrist25-JanOUT FOR THE SEASONWith Davis' season being over, the Kings will have to rely even more on Harrison Barnes, Davion Mitchell and Donte' DiVincenzo to generate more offense for Sacramento as their secondary pieces.
Nassir LittleSFPORShoulder25-JanOUT FOR THE SEASONLittle's season is over after he had shoulder surgery. Tony Snell, Justise Winslow, and Ben McLemore will have to help pick up the slack with Norman Powell traded away.
Andre IguodalaSG/SFGSWBack20-JanNo TimetableWe don't know when we'll see Iguodala back on the court. Draymond Green and Jonathan Kuminga will see more action on the floor along with Nemanja Bjelica.
Myles TurnerPF/CINDFoot14-JanLate March/Early Apr.Turner is dealing with a stress reaction in his foot and at first it didn't seem like he'd miss much time, but now, we may not see him until late-March or early-April. Goga Bitadze will completely benefit, while Jalen Smith and Isaiah Jackson will provide relief.
Lonzo BallGCHIKnee14-JanNo TimetableBall has a tear in his knee and while he's out, Alex Caruso and Coby White will help run the point for the most part. We should expect Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan to bring up the ball a decent amount. We still don't know when Ball will make it back this season.
Larry Nance Jr.PF/CNOPKnee5-JanLate March/Early Apr.Nance had surgery on his knee and we won't see him back on the court until the earliest is late-March. Jaxson Hayes and Willy Hernangomez will see more action in the post until Nance returns.
Damian LillardPGPORAbs31-DecOUT FOR THE SEASONAfter having surgery on his abdomen, Lillard is finished this season. Expect a ton of usage for Anfernee Simons (when healthy), Josh Hart and Justise Winslow when it comes to the Blazers' offense. Brandon Williams and Kris Dunn will provide help in the Blazers' backcourt for the rest of the way.
Ricky RubioPGINDTorn ACL28-DecOUT FOR THE SEASONRubio is done for the year. Malcolm Brogdon and Tyrese Haliburton will bring up the ball for the rest of the season.
Paul GeorgeFLACElbow22-DecNo TimetableGeorge has a tear in his elbow and with him out of action, Marcus Morris walks into a lot of shots and wings such as Terance Mann, Robert Covington and Luke Kennard will see an uptick in shots. We'll know what we're dealing with in regards to George in the next couple of weeks when he gets the elbow re-examined.
Derrick RoseGNYKAnkle16-DecLate March/Early Apr.With Rose out of action for a while, Alec Burks and Immanuel Quickley will help fill the void after the former NBA MVP had ankle surgery.
Kira Lewis Jr.PGNOPTorn ACL8-DecOUT FOR THE SEASONWith Lewis out for the rest of the season, Devonte' Graham should see a few more ticks of usage. The Pelicans can look to CJ McCollum and Garrett Temple to help run the point and Brandon Ingram could help as well.
T.J. McConnellGINDWrist1-DecNo TimetableMalcolm Brogdon logs a lot of minutes, but we may not see McConnell return until late in the season. Tyrese Haliburton will help run the point and Chris Duarte will see more minutes behind him.
Frank KaminskyCPHXKnee15-NovLate March/Early Apr.Kaminsky has a stress-reaction in his knee and just had a procedure done on it, so we won't see him for a few months. While he's out, Bismack Biyombo and JaVale McGee will be the primary backups behind Deandre Ayton.
Joe HarrisSG/SFBKNAnkle14-NovOUT FOR THE SEASONHarris had surgery on his injured ankle and his season is finished. Seth Curry, Bruce Brown and Patty Mills will see more minutes and shots for Brooklyn the rest of the way.
Collin SextonGCLEKnee7-NovOUT FOR THE SEASONDarius Garland becomes the prioritized scorer and he'll get even more time with the ball with Sexton out after Sexton's knee surgery. Cedi Osman and Isaac Okoro will help fill the void and both will play reserve minutes behind Lauri Markkanen (when healthy).
Michael Porter Jr.FDENBack6-NovNo TimetablePorter, according to reports, will shockingly be returning this season after having spinal surgery. Will Barton will continue picking up the slack and Aaron Gordon certainly benefits and we should see him picking up shots. Jeff and JaMychal Green pick up more playing time filling in at power forward.
Zion WilliamsonPFNOPFootPre-SeasonNo TimetableWe're starting to hear reports that Williamson won't play at all this year. Brandon Ingram, Jonas Valanciunas, Jaxson Hayes and Herbert Jones will continue to benefit with him out.
Kawhi LeonardSG/SFLACTorn ACLPre-SeasonNo TimetableLeonard is one of the biggest question marks heading into the season and we may not see him play at all this year. With Leonard out, Nicolas Batum, Robert Covington, Marcus Morris and Terance Mann will get more time in the Clippers' rotation.
Jamal MurrayGDENTorn ACLPre-SeasonNo TimetableWith Murray recovering from a torn ACL, Monte Morris and Facundo Campazzo will help run the point. Even Will Barton will get some time to handle the rock. Murray could still make it back before the end of the season, but from recent reports from Denver's coaches, his return doesn't appear to be near.
Jonathan IsaacFORLTorn ACLPre-SeasonOUT FOR THE SEASONIsaac is very fragile and won't make it on the court this season. Wendell Carter Jr. has been the primary power forward and Franz Wagner has done a good job providing offense at small forward and at power forward.
T.J. WarrenFINDFootPre-SeasonOUT FOR THE SEASONWarren won't be playing this season. Buddy Hield, Isaiah Jackson and Oshae Brissett will see more playing time. Jalen Smith will help guard the post as well.
James WisemanCGSWKneePre-SeasonNo TimetableWiseman is all of a sudden not close to returning to the court and he'll need more time to recover. Kevon Looney and Nemanja Bjelica will get more run until Wiseman returns. Draymond Green will certainly rotate to center to provide relief as well.
Kendrick NunnGLALKneePre-SeasonLate March/Early Apr.Lakers' management says we should see Nunn back on the court before the end of March but until that time, Avery Bradley, Malik Monk and Austin Reaves will continue to see more minutes.
Dario SaricPF/CPHXTorn ACLPre-SeasonNo TimetableIt is unknown when we'll see Saric take the court and we will see JaVale McGee back up Deandre Ayton. We may not see Saric at all this season. Bismack Biyombo is another healthy option the Suns can turn to.
