NBA Injuries

Jarrett AllenCCLEFinger6-MarNo TimetableAllen broke his Finger and we don't know when we'll see him back on the floor again and Evan Mobley and Kevin Love will have to fill the void and Lauri Markkanen should see more shots until he returns.
Malachi FlynnPGTORHamstring4-MarMid To Late MarchWe may have to tack on some time once we find out whether or not resting has helped Flynn's strained Hamstring recover in the next week or so but until he returns, Armoni Brooks and maybe even Scottie Barnes will have to help bring up the ball more.
Frank JacksonGDETBack1-MarMid To Late MarchJackson being out gives Killian Hayes more playing time and Cade Cunningham can always help bring up the ball for them. We'll find out more information in the next week and change regarding the severity of Jackson's injured Back.
Dennis SchroderPGHOUAnkle1-MarDay To DaySchroder has missed a few games now with an injured Ankle and Kevin Porter Jr. will continue to be the main PG for the Rockets and he has other players like Jalen Green and even Eric Gordon and Garrison Mathews to help bring up the rock if Porter needs relief.
Anthony EdwardsSG/SFMINKnee1-MarDay To DayEdwards Knee is in pain and while he rehabs it, we'll have to take it game-by-game with him until we hear something different. While he's out, Malik Beasley should continue to benefit and see more shots and D'Angelo Russell should see his shot-totals go up a bit as well.
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 and well and he and Brogdon will handle most of the offense for the rest of the way.
Fred VanVleetGTORKnee26-FebDay To DayFVV has missed the Raptors last few games and they've needed to sign Armoni Brooks to help Gary Trent Jr. in the backcourt. Scottie Barnes has been bringing up the ball a bit more. Malachi Flynn (when healthy) will help run the point as well.
Justise WinslowPFPORAchilles24-FebDay To DayWinslow has missed a few games and Achilles injury recovery can be a bit on the slow side and it wouldn't be shocking to see him miss more time. Josh Hart and Trendon Watford will absolutely see more minutes and usage.
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.
Rajon RondoPGCLEToe24-FebDay To DayThe Cavs simply can't shake the injury issues and Rondo hasn't played in a couple of weeks and with him out it will be up to Darius Garland and Cedi Osman to run the point. Caris LeVert can help bring up the ball once he's healthy.
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 and that's where Tre Mann can continue to come in and help set him up. We don't know when we'll see Giddey back on the floor.
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, Trendon Watford and Drew Eubanks will help fill the void up front for Portland.
Quentin GrimesSGNYKKnee16-FebMid To Late MarchGrimes had been playing a lot of minutes and will need at least a few more games off before the Knicks determine how serious his Knee injury is and while he's out, RJ Barrett and certainly Evan Fournier will take more jumpers and Alec Burks will be even more of a playmaker until Derrick Rose returns to action.
OG AnunobyFTORFinger16-FebLate MarchThis was very tricky because Anunoby at one point looked like he was going to suit up a couple of games ago according to reports 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-FebAprilIf Paul does make it back for the regular-season, the timing will put him back with maybe a game or two left or the Suns may just have to sit him out until Playoffs. Cameron Payne and Aaron Holiday move up the depth chart and Devin Booker will help run the point as well.
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 and Trevor Ariza should see more action.
Caris LeVertSG/SFCLEFoot15-FebDay To DayLeVert based off the injury designation Cleveland had him at before ultimately ruling him out seems like he's getting close to making his return but until he does, Lauri Markkanen, Cedi Osman and Isaac Okoro will see more time with the ball and more shots.
Kenrich WilliamsFOKCKnee14-FebDay To DayWe haven't seen Williams on the floor in a few weeks and have't been given much information regarding his return. Darius Bazley will be the Thunder's primary PF and post player and Aleksej Pokusevski will back him up and toggle between SF and PF.
Ty JeromeGOKCHip14-FebDay To DayWith Ty Jerome sidelined the Thunder have needed Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to toggle between PG and SG and Tre Mann has been able to draw starts with Jerome out. We're approaching a month without Jerome and haven't been updated much on his situation.
Luguentz DortSG/SFOKCShoulder12-FebDay To DayWe're still awaiting more news regarding Dort's injured Shoulder as we're approaching a month without seeing him on the floor and Aleksej Pokusevski will see more run at SF until he's back in action. More plays will continue to be designed for Darius Bazley.
Marquese ChrissPF/CDALKnee10-FebNo TimetableIt's hard to tell when Chriss will take the floor again, but while he's out Davis Bertans will help Maxi Kleber, Dwight Powell and Dorian Finney-Smith in the post.
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.
Nerlens NoelPF/CNYKFoot7-FebDay To DayNoel continues to miss games and until he returns from his injury, Taj Gibson will back up Mitchell Robinson. Julius Randle and Obi Toppin back rotate to C as well.
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 should will see more playing time. Terry Rozier will continue seeing more shots.
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.
Eric BledoeGPORAchilles31-JanNo TimetableWe don't know how long it will be until Bledsoe returns to action but Anfernee Simons 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.
George HillGMILNeck28-JanMid to late MarchWith 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.
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-JanNo TimetableMcDaniels 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/SFGSWBack20-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.
Alex CarusoGCHIWrist21-JanLate MarchCaruso 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. Caruso should be back in the next few weeks.
Myles TurnerPF/CINDFoot14-JanLate MarchTurner 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/early April 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-JanMid to late 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-JanMid to late MarchGreen 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. Lillard could be looking at an April return, if at all.
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.
Derrick RoseGNYKAnkle16-DecMid to late 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.
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-NovOUT FOR THE SEASONHarris had surgery on his injured Ankle and his season is finished. Seth Curry, Cameron Thomas and Patty Mills will see more minutes and shots for the rest of the way.
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-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 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 is apparently getting closer to returning and is not back with the Pelicans. Brandon Ingram, Jonas Valanciunas, Jaxson Hayes and Herbert Jones will 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.
Victor OladipoSG/SFMIAQuadPre-SeasonDay To DayOladipo is getting ready to make his season debut with Miami and he'll very likely be on heavy minutes restriction for at least a few weeks. Duncan Robinson will see his shots take a hit a bit.
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.
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 is getting closer to returning as he's with the Warriors G-League team. 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.
