NBA Injuries

Nicolas BatumFLACCOVID21-NovNo TimetableWith Batum out, Justise Winslow is bound to get more action and Luke Kennard will indirectly benefit by seeing more shots. Terance Mann will be needed to fill in on defense.
Duncan RobinsonSG/SFMIAKnee20-NovDay To DayWe're waiting to see if Robinson will need an extended absence, but if he needs games off, Tyler Herro will see more shots and Caleb Martin will see more minutes. Max Strus should see more minutes.
Mitchell RobinsonCNYKConcussion20-NovNo TimetableIf Robinson needs to miss multiple games, Nerlens Noel will see a bump in minutes. Obi Toppin will see some reserve minutes behind Noel and when Taj Gibson is healthy he will see back up minutes.
Bruce BrownSG/SFBKNHamstring19-NovDay To DayWith Brown dealing with a sore Hamstring, DeAndre' Bembry will see more minutes. If needed, James Johnson can also rotate to SF and help out.
Taj GibsonPF/CNYKGroin17-NovDay To DayGibson has a sore Groin and with Mitchell Robinson already hurt, Obi Toppin will see more minutes behind Nerlens Noel. Jericho Sims may see a few as well if foul trouble occurs.
Danny GreenSG/SFPHIHamstring16-NovDay To DayIf Danny Green has to continue to miss games, Shake Milton and Furkan Korkmaz will see more shots. Tyrese Maxey will see a bump in shots as well.
Josh OkogieSG/SFMINBack15-NovDay To DayOkogie is more on the outside looking into the Timberwolves rotation behind Malik Beasley. He gets mainly reserve run.
Frank KaminskyCPHXKnee15-NovNo TimetableReports are out that Kaminsky has a stress-reaction in his Knee and we don't know when we'll see him take the court. While he's out JaVale McGee will be the primary back up behind Deandre Ayton.
Kevin Porter Jr.G/SFHOUThigh15-NovDay To DayIf Porter has to miss anymore time, Eric Gordon will see more minutes. Jalen Green will see more shots as well.
Luka DoncicGDALAnkle15-NovDay To DayDoncic could potentially return in the next couple of games as he's dealing with lower-body injuries and while Doncic is out, Jalen Brunson will see more minutes and he'll handle the rock more. Tim Hardaway Jr. becomes the second prioritized shooter behind Kristaps Porzingis.
OG AnunobyFTORHip15-NovDay To DayAt first, we thought that Anunoby was going to be out for awhile with the injured Hip and now he may only miss a few games considering he hadn't been ruled out until shortly before Sunday's game. If he needs to miss more time, Precious Achiuwa and Khem Birch will see more run.
Evan MobleyPF/CCLEElbow15-NovDecemberWith Mobley dealing with this Elbow injury, Lauri Markkanen will have to help out at PF and Jarrett Allen will see more action in the post. Dean Wade could earn more minutes behind Markkanen.
Zeke NnajiPFDENAnkle14-NovDay To DayNnaji is on the outside looking into the Nuggets rotation as he sits behind JaMychal Green. Green is only able to get so many minutes behind Nikola Jokic.
Joe HarrisSG/SFBKNAnkle14-NovDay To DayHarris has missed a few games with an injured Ankle and 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.
Lamar StevensSFCLEAnkle12-NovDay To DayStevens is at the end of the Cavs bench and will only play if multiple forwards are out when he's healthy enough to return to action.
De'Andre HunterFATLWrist12-NovJanuaryAfter 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.
Nikola VucevicCCHICOVID11-NovNo TimetableWith Vucevic sidelined, we should see Tony Bradley and Alize Johnson help fill the void. Derrick Jones Jr should see his minutes get boosted as well.
Kelly OlynykPF/CDETKnee10-NovLate DecemberIsaiah Stewart should finally be able to grab more minutes with Olynyk out of commission but for some reason the Pistons don't seem that impressed by him and if we look down the bench, Luka Garza and Trey Lyles will grab more minutes. Olynyk could be out until the year turns to 2022.
Markieff MorrisPF/CMIANeck8-NovLate Nov/Early DecWith Morris still feeling the effects of the Nikola Jokic shove to the ground from behind, P.J. Tucker will see a minor minutes boost and Caleb Martin can help with reserve minutes.
Joel EmbiidCPHICOVID8-NovNo TimetableAndre Drummond walks into a boatload of minutes with Embiid in the protocol. Expect Drummond to play close to 30 minutes per game with getting some relief from Georges Niang and Paul Reed.
Austin ReavesSGLALHamstring8-NovEarly DecemberReaves was actually playing over 21 minutes per game and we should see Wayne Ellington and Avery Bradley pick up a few more reserve minutes.
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. 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.
Jaylen BrownSG/SFBOSHamstring4-NovDay To DayBrown should be back for Monday's game. Josh Richardson and Romeo Langford will see more action on the court. The Celtics will need to rely a bit more on Al Horford and Dennis Schroder to help with the scoring.
PJ WashingtonPF/CCHAElbow3-NovDay To DayIf Washington needs to continue sit out any longer, Mason Plumlee will get more minutes. Miles Bridges may even pick up a few more minutes as well but this benefits the Center postiion a bit more.
Jock LandaleCSASCOVID1-NovNo TimetableLandale was on the outside looking into the Spurs rotation this year and Drew Eubanks and Thaddeus Young will fill in until Jakob Poeltl returns.
Davis BertansPF/CWASAnkle1-NovDay To DayBertans could return early this week. Kyle Kuzma has done an excellent job handling the PF spot and they'll be getting Rui Hachimura back soon. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is a good defender and he can help along with Deni Avdija fill the void at SF.
Patrick WilliamsFCHIWrist28-OctOUT FOR THE SEASONThe Bulls one area that they don't have a lot of is frontcourt depth and with the reports saying that Williams season is over after this bad Wrist injury, Javonte Green should start to see more playing time. This could open up the rotation for Troy Brown Jr to grab a few more minutes if DeMar DeRozan is needed to fill in at PF.
Nicolas ClaxtonCBKNIllness27-OctNo TimetableClaxton is sick and it's apparently not COVID and that has cost him multiple games and while he recovers, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge will fill the void.
Marcus Morris Sr.PF/CLACKnee23-OctNo TimetableThere's no timetable still but he's starting to recover. Nicolas Batum (when healthy) has seen a lot of minutes and a decent amount of shots. Beyond Batum, the Clippers have been able to rely on the oft-injured Justise Winslow to play reserve minutes.
Brook LopezCMILBack19-OctNo TimetableWe don't know when we'll see Lopez back in action, but Thanasis Antetokounmpo and Bobby Portis will be Lopez' main fill-ins. Semi Ojeleye could also benefit indirectly as well by picking up more reserve minutes.
Zion WilliamsonPFNOPFootPre-SeasonNo TimetableWe don't know when we'll see Williamson take the court but while he's out Brandon Ingram will have to help guard the post a bit and we've seen Herbert Jones draw starts as well. Jonas Valanciunas will be the main post scorer.
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 and he's a hard player to stash unless you have unlimited INJ spots. With Leonard out, Nicolas Batum and Terance Mann will get more time in the Clippers rotation.
Klay ThompsonSG/SFGSWAchillesPre-SeasonDecemberThompson has been hurt the last couple of years but he is practicing once again and he's hoping to return to action before the year turns to 2022. Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole will fill in until he can finally take the court again.
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 TimetableWith Fultz out for an undisclosed amount of time, Cole Anthony takes command of the offense with Jaeln Suggs helping him out in the backcourt.
Donte DiVincenzoGMILAnklePre-SeasonNo TimetableDiVincenzo will need more time before he can get back on the court and reclaim his SG spot on the team and Pat Connaughton and Grayson Allen will continue to see heavy run in the Bucks rotation. Jordan Nwora benefits as well.
T.J. WarrenFINDFootPre-SeasonNo TimetableWe don't know when we'll see Warren back on the court and until he's ready to roll 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-SeasonNo TimetableBryant had surgery on his Knee at the beginning of the year and while we don't know when he'll be active again, it wouldn't be surprising to see him back out there in mid-to-late December, but until he's back, Montrezl Harrell and Daniel Gafford will fill in.
James WisemanCGSWKneePre-SeasonEarly DecemberWe should see Wiseman return before the start of 2022 according to reports. 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. The timetable has been muddled a bit lately. Rajon Rondo 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-SeasonNo TimetableWill Collins ever be healthy again? His lower body continues to fail him and because we don't know when he'll be on the court, Keldon Johnson and especially Doug McDermott benefit.
Trevor ArizaSG/SFLALAnklePre-SeasonDecemberAriza's defense will be needed down the stretch when the Lakers make a title run, but for now while he's out, Malik Monk, Carmelo Anthony and Kent Bazemore will see more burn in the Lakers rotation.
Onyeka OkongwuPF/CATLShoulderPre-SeasonLate DecemberOkongwu will be playing behind Clint Capela and Danilo Gallinari once he returns and it's very hard to tell whether or not he'll even account for 15 minutes per contest.
Yuta WatanabeFTORCalfPre-SeasonNo TimetableWatanabe is strictly a reserve who will be on the outside looking into the rotation once he's healthy. Chris Boucher can't even get that much love in this rotation.
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.
