NBA injury report, December 14: Updates for Trae Young, Bradley Beal, Jalen Brunson, Klay Thompson, more


It’s an enormous 10-game slate within the NBA Wednesday, anchored by ESPN’s doubleheader. Here’s a take a look at the day’s injury report, together with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.

NBA Injury Report: December 14

Detroit Pistons vs. Charlotte Hornets

No notable day-to-day injuries for either team right now.

Golden State Warriors vs. Indiana Pacers

Andrew Wiggins (groin) – OUT
Klay Thompson (injury management) – TBD

That is the second night of a back-to-back, so Thompson should rest. We’ll see how the Warriors handle the remaining of their lineup. Jordan Poole must be an enormous consider this one for Golden State.

Atlanta Hawks vs. Orlando Magic

Trae Young (back) – questionable
Clint Capela (Achilles) – available

Capela comes back in, so Onyeka Okongwu loses some value. Aaron Holiday may very well be the lead guard if Young sits, although Bogdan Bogdanovic is perhaps the true beneficiary when it comes to shots and playmaking opportunities.

Sacramento Kings vs. Toronto Raptors

OG Anunoby (hip) – OUT, expected to miss not less than every week

Scottie Barnes and Gary Trent Jr. will see more usage with Anunoby out.

Recent York Knicks vs. Chicago Bulls

Jalen Brunson (foot) – questionable

Brunson suffered this injury at the top of Recent York’s last game, so we’ll see how the Knicks handle him. If he sits, Immanuel Quickley may very well be a pleasant filler play.

Miami Heat vs. Oklahoma City Thunder

Jimmy Butler (injury management) – OUT
Tyler Herro (ankle) – probable

Kyle Lowry, Max Strus and Herro will see more shots with Butler out.

Portland Trail Blazers vs. San Antonio Spurs

No notable day-to-day injuries for either team right now.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Dallas Mavericks

Maxi Kleber (knee) – questionable

If Kleber sits, Christian Wood will see decent minutes in Dallas’ rotation.

Washington Wizards vs. Denver Nuggets

Bradley Beal (hamstring) – questionable
Kristaps Porzingis (back) -questionable

Beal is near getting back from the hamstring injury he suffered over every week ago, while Porzingis left the team’s game Monday with the back issue. Corey Kispert and Daniel Gafford might lose some DFS value respectively if each players are in.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Los Angeles Clippers

D’Angelo Russell (knee) – questionable

If Russell sits, Austin Rivers and Jaylen Nowall can be in line for large minutes within the backcourt.

Norman Powell (groin) – OUT
Kawhi Leonard (injury management) – TBD

It’s the primary game of a back-to-back, so Leonard’s status is up within the air. If he also sits, Nicolas Batum and Robert Covington should see time within the forward rotation for LA.
