NBA Injuries

Cam ReddishSG/SFATLAnkle9-JanDay To DayReddish hurt his Ankle and didn't return to his previous game and while he's out, Kevin Huerter, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari will see more shots. We're awaiting to see how serious Reddish's Ankle injury is.
Dillon BrooksSG/SFMEMAnkle8-JanFebruaryBrooks badly sprained his ANkle and he'll need a few weeks to a month to recover and while he's sidelined, Desmond Bane will certainly see more usage and Kyle Anderson should see a few more shots.
Larry Nance Jr.PF/CPORKnee5-JanLate JanuaryNance hurt his Knee a couple of games ago and he will miss at least the next handful of games and Cody Zeller will back up Jusuf Nurkic in the post. Robert Covington should see a few more shots as well.
Patrick BeverleyGMINGroin5-JanDay To DayBeverley has sat for the last few games with an injured Groin and while he's out, Malik Beasley will help D'Angelo Russell in the backcourt and he can toggle to both positions.
Wendell Carter Jr.PF/CORLHamstring5-JanDay To DayCarter has missed a few games with a sore Hamstring and if he has to continue to sit, Mo Bamba will get more plays called in the post for him and Chuma Okeke will see more playing time.
Jrue HolidayGMILAnkle5-JanDay To DayWith George Hill already out, if Holiday needs to miss additional time Jordan Nwora and Wes Matthews will continue to see more action.
Jimmy ButlerFMIAAnkle3-JanDay To DayWith Jimmy Butler's Ankle banged up, Tyler Herro will see more shots and Duncan Robinson and Max Strus will see more minutes until he returns.
Shake MiltonGPHIBack3-JanDay To DayMilton's Back is bothering him and if he needs to continue to miss time, Furkan Korkmaz will benefit by seeing more SG minutes off the bench.
Isaac OkoroSG/SFCLEElbow2-JanLate JanuaryOkoro will need a few weeks to recover after injuring his Elbow and while he's out Cedi Osman and Darius Garland will handle most of the backcourt responsibilities. Lauri Markkanen should see a few more shots at SF as well.
Alperen SengunCHOUAnkle31-DecLate JanuarySengun hasn't played yet in 2022 because he's been dealing with an Akle injury and Daniel Theis will back up Christian Wood until he's ready to return to action. He could potentially return in a couple of games.
Javonte GreenG/SFCHIGroin31-DecLate JanuaryGreen is nursing an injured Groin and the Bulls have to look down their bench and rely on Ayo Dosunmu to log minutes. Derrick Jones Jr. should see more minutes as well as a reserve.
Damian LillardPGPORAbs31-DecLate JanuaryThis isn't ideal for Lillard investors because he is going to go see other Doctors to determine the severity of his injured abs and this could lead to a ton of usage for Anfernee Simons over the next few weeks w/ CJ McCollum already out.
Kemba WalkerPGNYKKnee29-DecDay To DayWalker has missed his last few games with a sore Knee and with until he comes back, Immanuel Quickley and Alec Burks will help fill the void.
Ricky RubioPGCLETorn ACL28-DecOUT FOR THE SEASONRubio is the latest Cavs player to get hurt as the team just can't shake injuries and COVID issues. With Darius Garland in the league's protocol for COVID, Isaac Okoro is looking like he's next man up to run point. Cedi Osman can help when he returns to the court.
Dewayne DedmonCMIAKnee23-DecLate JanuaryDedmon sprained his MCL and will need a few weeks for it to recover and with Bam Adebayo already out, Omer Yurtseven and P.J. Tucker will have to handle the post. The Heat also have Udonis Haslem as a reserve if needed.
Paul GeorgeFLACElbow22-DecLate JanuaryGeorge 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 and Luke Kennard will see an uptick in shots. When healthy, Reggie Jackson becomes the prioritized scorer.
Malcolm BrogdonPGINDAchilles21-DecDay To DayBrogdon is getting closer to returning to action and with T.J. McConnell already sidelined, Chris Duarte and Caris LeVert will have to help bring up the ball if needed.
Alex CarusoGCHIFoot20-DecDay To DayJust when the Bulls are starting to get healthier, Caruso injures his Foot early in the Bulls last game and we'll have to see if he needs more time off. Coby White will continue to get serious burn until Caruso returns.
Isaiah HartensteinPF/CLACAnkle18-DecNo TimetableHartenstein is more of a reserve player in the rotation and with Nicolas Batum healthy, he'll help Ivica Zubac and Serge Ibaka in the post with all picking up minutes. Marcus Morris will toggle between PF and C as well.
Anthony DavisPF/CLALKnee17-DecLate JanuaryWith Davis out of action, Dwight Howard and Carmelo Anthony will be the primary beneficiaries and if LeBron has to move to PF for a bit, Talen Horton-Tucker will see more SF minutes. We've seen DeAndre Jordan as well.
Derrick RoseGNYKAnkle16-DecFebruaryWith 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 February (hopefully).
Jerami GrantFDETThumb10-DecJanuary-FebruaryWith Grant out, Cade Cunningham becomes the prioritized scorer in Detroit while other secondary options such as Saddiq Bey should see more action. Trey Lyles and Isaiah Stewart should see more usage as well.
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 Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Garrett Temple to help run the point. Brandon Ingram could help as well.
CJ McCollumGPORLung6-DecNo TimetableMcCollum is apparently not ready to return and the reporting on his injury has been a bit inconsistent. Norman Powell (when healthy) and Anfernee Simons will provide relief and help in the backcourt.
Solomon HillSG/SFATLHamstring5-DecNo TimetableHill's Hamstring is torn and we don't know if he'll play again this season. Cam Reddish and Kevin Huerter both benefit and will see a few more minutes.
T.J. McConnellGINDWrist1-DecLate JanuaryMalcolm Brogdon logs a lot of minutes and we may not see McConnell until January and Chris Duarte and Brad Wanamaker will see more minutes behind him.
Jalen SuggsGORLThumb29-NovNo TimetableSuggs being out gives Terrence Ross more life in the Magic's rotation and Gary Harris and Franz Wagner will definitely benefit by seeing more shots.
Bam AdebayoPF/CMIAThumb29-NovLate JanuaryThe primary fill-in for Adebayo while he recovers is Dewayne Dedmon with Omer Yurtseven backing him up. Udonis Haslem is active as well.
PJ DozierGDENTorn ACL23-NovOUT FOR THE SEASONWith Dozier done for the year, his 19 minutes per game will be made up by Monte Morris and Bones Hyland. Facundo Campazzo indirectly benefits as the Nuggets mid-court continues to hurt.
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 JaVale McGee and Jalen Smith will be the primary back ups behind Deandre Ayton.
Joe HarrisSG/SFBKNAnkle14-NovJanuary-FebruaryHarris had surgery on his injured Ankle and could miss one to two months. While he's out, Patty Mills and DeAndre Bembry will see more minutes and shots. James Harden will see a small bump in shots as well. Harris could make it back before February.
De'Andre HunterFATLWrist12-NovNo TimetableAfter having a procedure on his Wrist, Kevin Huerter and Cam Reddish will benefit by seeing more minutes and shots. Danilo Gallinari will see more minutes and there won't be as much PF competition.
Kelly OlynykPF/CDETKnee10-NovNo TimetableIsaiah Stewart grabs more minutes with Olynyk out of commission and Olynyk still isn't taking any kind of contact or anything. Trey Lyles will play more.
Markieff MorrisPF/CMIANeck8-NovNo TimetableWith Morris still feeling the effects of the Nikola Jokic shove to the ground from behind, KZ Okpala will be the primary beneficiary with P.J. Tucker sidelined. Omer Yurtseven and Dewayne Dedmon (when healthy) will be the Heat's source of size in the paint.
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.
Michael Porter Jr.FDENBack6-NovNo TimetablePorter hasn't looked good at all this year and we don't know when we'll see him take the court again after having Spinal surgery. While he's out, Will Barton will continue picking up the slack and Aaron Gordon certainly benefits and we should see him picking up shots.
Patrick WilliamsFCHIWrist28-OctOUT FOR THE SEASONThe Bulls one area that they don't have a lot of is frontcourt depth and with Williams season over after this bad Wrist injury, Javonte Green should start to see more playing time. This could open up the rotation if DeMar DeRozan is needed to fill in at PF.
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 and DeMarcus Cousins will get reserve minutes under the rim.
Zion WilliamsonPFNOPFootPre-SeasonJanuary-FebruaryWilliamson'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, WIlly Hernangomez and Herbert Jones will benefit until he's ready.
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 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.
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 Caris LeVert, Justin Holiday and Oshae Brissett will see more playing time. Some think he'll be back before January and others think the Pacers will proceed with caution keeping Warren out through January.
Thomas BryantCWASTorn ACLPre-SeasonJanuaryThe Wizards Coaches have said recently that Bryant could return in the next couple of weeks and he'll likely start with a limited role. Until he's back, Montrezl Harrell and Daniel Gafford will continue to fill in.
James WisemanCGSWKneePre-SeasonJanuary-FebruaryThe Warriors are hoping to have Wiseman back in the lineup in early 2022. Kevon Looney and Nemanja Bjelica will get more run until Wiseman us 100 percent. Draymond Green will certainly rotate to center to provide relief as well.
Kendrick NunnGLALKneePre-SeasonNo TimetableWe still don't know when we'll see Nunn take the floor with the Lakers. He can do non-contact work right now. Avery Bradley will lose out on playing time once Nunn returns as he will back up Russell Westbrook.
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.
Zach CollinsPF/CSASAnklePre-SeasonJanuary-FebruaryWill Collins ever be healthy again? As soon as he gets healthy, he injures another body part. He's looking at a January return for now and Keldon Johnson and especially Doug McDermott benefit until he's ready to go.
E'Twaun MooreGORLKneePre-SeasonNo TimetableFranz Wagner has been solid to start off the year and Moore will be an injury-replacement player in the rotation when he's healthy. He's got multiple options in front of him including Terrence Ross.
