NBA Injuries

Anthony DavisPF/CLALFoot16-FebMid to late MarchDavis is dealing with a sprained Foot and he'll need to miss another few weeks and while he's out Dwight Howard, Trevor Ariza and DeAndre Jordan should see more action.
Chris DuarteSG/SFINDToe13-FebDay To DayDuarte missed the Pacers last few games and if he needs more time off, Buddy Hield and Lance Stephenson will see more shots. Tyrese Haliburton also benefits and we'll have to see how the Pacers organize him and Borgdon once Brogdon is healthy.
John CollinsPF/CATLFoot11-FebDay To DayCollins could be looking at more time off with a strained Foot and if he can't make it back right after the All-Star break, De'Andre Hunter and Danilo Gallinari will see more minutes.
Pat ConnaughtonSG/SFMILHand10-FebNo TimetableWe don't know when we'll see Connaughton return to the Bucks lineup after badly injuring his Hand. Grayson Allen and Wes Matthews will see more minutes and shots.
Norman PowellSG/SFLACFoot10-FebNo TimetablePowell suffered a broken Foot and 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.
Dennis Smith Jr.PGPORElbow9-FebMid to late MarchSmith has a tear in his Elbow and we can definitely see this timetable get lengthened and Josh Hart will help Anfernee Simons run the point along with Ben McLemore.
Nerlens NoelPF/CNYKFoot7-FebDay To DayNoel has missed a few games with an injured Foot and if he can't make it back to the floor right out of the All-Star break, Taj Gibson will back up Mitchell Robinson. Julius Randle and Obi Toppin back rotate to C as well.
Caleb MartinSG/SFMIAAchilles7-FebDay To DayIf Martin needs to sit for more games, Duncan Robinson and Max Strus will receive more minutes and shots off the bench.
Gordon HaywardSG/SFCHAAnkle7-FebNo TimetableWe don't know when Hayward will take the floor again and while he's out Kelly Oubre Jr. and Cody Martin (when healthy) should will see more playing time. Terry Rozier will continue seeing more shots.
Cody MartinSG/SFCHAAchilles/Ankle5-FebDay To DayMartin is dealing with multiple injuries and Kelly Oubre Jr. will be the main beneficiary and James Bouknight will see reserve minutes.
Mike MuscalaPF/COKCAnkle4-FebDay To DayWith Muscala out, Derrick Favors and Isaiah Roby will handle the center position with Roby having the bigger ceiling moving forward.
Rudy GayFUTAKnee4-FebDay To DayGay has been dealing with a sore Knee and if he needs more time off, Bojan Bogdanovic and Eric Paschall will see more minutes and shots.
Carmelo AnthonyFLALHamstring3-FebDay To DayAnthony has been out for most of February and if the time off he's had from the All-Star break wasn't enough for him to fully recover, Trevor Ariza and Talen Horton-Tucker will see more run.
James HardenGPHIHamstring2-FebDay To DayHarden has been traded to the Sixers and if he needs more time to recover, Tyrese Maxey, Shake Milton and Furkan Korkmaz will see more minutes and time with the ball.
Eric BledoeGPORAchilles31-JanDay To DayWe don't know how long it will be until Bledsoe returns to action but Anfernee Simons and Dennis Smith Jr (when healthy) will run the point until (if) Damian Lillard returns to action.
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 for 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 (when healthy) will take over as the prioritized scorer and Kyle Kuzma, Deni Avdija and Raul Neto will certainly be taking a lot more shots.
Kristaps PorzingisPF/CWASKnee29-JanDay To DayPorzingis was traded to the Wizards while injured and according to reports he should be ready to make his Washington debut on either Friday or Saturday. The Wizards may choose to sit him on back-to-backs to keep him healthy as he has a history of getting injured for a long period of time.
George HillGMILNeck28-JanLate FebruaryWith Hill out, Lindell Wigginton will see more time running the point behind Jrue Holiday and the Bucks could be looking to sign someone else for depth purposes. Goran Dragic has been linked to Milwaukee.
Shai Gilgeous-AlexanderGOKCAnkle28-JanLate FebruarySGA suffered a pretty bad Ankle sprain and with him out, Josh Giddey will run the point a bit more and Luguentz Dort will certainly see more usage with SGA off the floor. Tre Mann will get more time running the point.
Jeremiah Robinson-EarlF/COKCFoot28-JanLate Mar./Early Apr.Robinson-Earl has an injured Foot and while he's out Darius Bazley and Luguentz Dort will see more shots in the Thunder's offense and Isaiah Roby should see a boost in minutes.
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 and 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 secondary pieces.
Nassir LittleSFPORShoulder25-JanOUT FOR THE SEASONLittle's season is over after he had Shoulder surgery and the Blazers and Tony Snell, Justise Winslow and Ben McLemore will have to help pick up the slack with Norman Powell traded away.
Jalen McDanielsF/CCHAAnkle21-JanDay To DayMcDaniels remains out and hasn't played since January 21st. When healthy, he normally plays more when some of the starting forwards are out for Charlotte and with a healthy Kelly Oubre Jr. and PJ Washington, McDaniels ceiling is lowered.
Andre IguodalaSG/SFGSWHip20-JanNo TimetableWe don't know when we'll see Iguodala back on the court again and with Draymond Green banged up, Jonathan Kuminga will see more action on the floor along with Nemanja Bjelica.
R.J. HamptonGORLKnee19-JanNo TimetableWith Hampton out for a while with a badly sprained Knee, Gary Harris and Jalen Suggs will benefit. Suggs will see more shots instead of setting up Cole Anthony more and Harris should see more minutes as well.
Cameron PayneGPHXWrist22-JanDay To DayPayne being hurt should give new acquisition Aaron Holiday more run off the bench backing up Chris Paul. Elfrid Payton and Devin Booker can always help run the point a bit as well throughout the game.
Lauri MarkkanenF/CCLEAnkle22-JanDay To DayWith Markkanen out, expect Isaac Okoro to get more involved in the offense and Cedi Osman should see more looks. Markkanen is getting closer to returning to action and could be back within the next few games.
Alex CarusoGCHIWrist21-JanMarchCaruso can't stay healthy as Grayson Allen contributed to a hard fall that Caruso took and he injured his Wrist. Coby White will continue to get serious burn until Caruso returns along with Ayo Dosunmu.
Kevin DurantFBKNKnee15-JanNo TimetableWith Durant sidelined, Kessler Edwards will see more minutes and LaMarcus Aldridge will also benefit. A lot of the Nets offense will be produced by Kyrie Irving (when he can play) and Seth Curry.
Myles TurnerPF/CINDFoot14-JanNo TimetableTurner is dealing with a Stress Reaction in his Foot and at first it didn't seem like he'd miss much time and now we may not see him until late March and Goga Bitadze will completely benefit. Jalen Smith and Isaiah Jackson will provide relief.
Lonzo BallGCHIKnee14-JanMarchBall has a tear in his Knee and while he's out, Coby White will help run the point for the most part and we should expect DeMar DeRozan to bring up the ball a decent amount until Zach LaVine returns to action.
Dillon BrooksSG/SFMEMAnkle8-JanEarly To Mid-MarchBrooks badly sprained his Ankle and he'll need more time to recover and while he's sidelined, Desmond Bane will certainly see more usage and De'Anthony Melton and Kyle Anderson should see a few more shots.
Draymond GreenPF/CGSWCalf/Back5-JanLate Feb./Early Mar.Green being out opens up the rotation for Otto Porter and Jonathan Kuminga to get more minutes at PF and Kevon Looney will play even more center minutes. Green is dealing with multiple injuries and he will need a few more weeks to recover.
Larry Nance Jr.PF/CNOPKnee5-JanLate Mar./Early Apr.Nance had surgery on his Knee and we won't see him back on the court until the earliest late-March. Jaxson Hayes and Willy Hernangomez will see more action in the post until Nance returns.
Damian LillardPGPORAbs31-DecNo TimetableAfter having surgery on his Abdomin, expect a ton of usage for Anfernee Simons, Josh Hart, Jusuf Nurkic and Justise Winslow when it comes to the Blazers offense. Dennis Smith Jr. (when healthy) will continue seeing reserve minutes as well and Eric Bledsoe will get involved when healthy. Lillard may not return this season after the Blazers sold off key pieces at the trade deadline.
Ricky RubioPGCLETorn ACL28-DecOUT FOR THE SEASONRubio is done for the year and Darius Garland will be helped by Rajon Rondo and Cedi Osman when it comes to running the point. Isaac Okoro will have to help bring up the rock a bit as well.
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 weeks when he gets the elbow re-examined.
Malcolm BrogdonPGINDAchilles21-DecDay To DayBrogdon could potentially return in the next couple of games after drawing a recent "questionable" tag. He can't shake the soreness in his Achilles and with T.J. McConnell already sidelined, Tyrese Haliburton, Chris Duarte and Keifer Sykes will have to help bring up the ball until he returns. .
Derrick RoseGNYKAnkle16-DecEarly To Mid-MarchWith Rose out of action for a while, Alec Burks, Kemba Walker and Immanuel Quickley will help fill the void after the former NBA MVP had Ankle surgery. We'll see him return to action in the last week in February (hopefully).
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 and the pelicans can look to CJ McCollum and Garrett Temple to help run the point. Brandon Ingram could help as well.
T.J. McConnellGINDWrist1-DecNo TimetableMalcolm Brogdon logs a lot of minutes and we may not see McConnell return until late in the season and Tyrese Haliburton will help run the point and Chris Duarte will see more minutes behind him.
Frank KaminskyCPHXKnee15-NovMarchKaminsky has a stress-reaction in his Knee and he just had a procedure on his Knee and we won't see him for a few months. While he's out Bismack Biyombo and JaVale McGee will be the primary back ups behind Deandre Ayton.
Joe HarrisSG/SFBKNAnkle14-NovNo TimetableHarris had surgery on his injured Ankle and now reports are coming out that he may need another procedure. While he's out, Seth Curry, Cameron Thomas and Patty Mills will see more minutes and shots.
Markieff MorrisPF/CMIANeck8-NovNo TimetableWith Morris still "feeling the effects" of the Nikola Jokic shove to the ground from behind, Dewayne Dedmon will be the Heat's source of size in the paint behind Bam Adebayo. New reports indicate that the Heat's medical team is being overly cautious regarding activating Morris.
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 had 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-NovOUT FOR THE SEASONPorter won't 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 PF.
Patrick WilliamsFCHIWrist28-OctNo TimetableThe Bulls one area that they don't have a lot of is frontcourt depth and with Williams remains out after this bad Wrist injury. DeMar DeRozan will fill in at PF with Javonte Green playing behind him. Williams was originally thought to be done for the season but Bulls management thinks he can make it back before the regular-season is over.
Brook LopezCMILBack19-OctNo TimetableLopez had surgery on his Back and we don't know when or if we'll see him take the court this season. Bobby Portis will be Lopez' main fill-in until he returns to action. Serge Ibaka will back up Portis.
Zion WilliamsonPFNOPFootPre-SeasonNo TimetableWilliamson's rehab had to taken down a few notches because his Foot is experiencing a lot of pain and he's having trouble putting full pressure on it. Brandon Ingram, Jonas Valanciunas, Jaxson Hayes and Herbert Jones will benefit with him out. Williamson may have to have another procedure on his Foot and that would make him unavailable for the season.
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.
Victor OladipoSG/SFMIAQuadPre-SeasonNo TimetableOladipo is another player who we may not see until March or April and he's very fragile and another player that is a waste of an INJ spot because he may not play. Tyler Herro and Duncan Robinson both benefit with him out.
Jonathan IsaacFORLTorn ACLPre-SeasonNo TimetableIsaac is very fragile and we don't know when we'll see him make his season debut. Wendell Carter Jr. has been filling in at PF and Franz Wagner has done a good job providing offense at SF.
Markelle FultzGORLTorn ACLPre-SeasonNo TimetableFultz is going to continue rehabbing in the G-League which is a positive sign regarding his health, but we still don't know when we'll see him play. Terrence Ross and R.J. Hampton will help Cole Anthony run the point.
T.J. WarrenFINDFootPre-SeasonNo TimetableWe don't know when we'll see Warren back on the court and until he's ready to roll Buddy Hield, Isaiah Jackson and Oshae Brissett will see more playing time. We still haven't been updated that much in the last month except that he's still coming along.
James WisemanCGSWKneePre-SeasonNo TimetableWiseman had another Knee procedure in December and that leaves him sidelined for an unknown amount of time. Kevon Looney and Nemanja Bjelica will get more run until Wiseman returns. Draymond Green (when healthy) will certainly rotate to center to provide relief as well.
Kendrick NunnGLALKneePre-SeasonLate MarchLakers 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.
