NBA Injury Report: December 9

Recent York Knicks vs. Charlotte Hornets

Obi Toppin (knee) – OUT, expected to miss 2-3 weeks

With Toppin out of the rotation, search for Cam Reddish and R.J. Barrett to get more minutes for the Knicks.

Washington Wizards vs. Indiana Pacers

Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) – questionable
Will Barton (foot) – questionable

Porzingis suffered this injury Wednesday but got here back in the sport. If he can’t go, Daniel Gafford will likely be the beneficiary. Corey Kispert would gain more value if Barton sits because of a foot issue.

Myles Turner (hamstring) – questionable

Turner played within the team’s last game but when he were to sit down, Jalen Smith would command many of the minutes within the frontcourt.

Toronto Raptors vs. Orlando Magic

No notable day-to-day injuries for either team at the moment.

Atlanta Hawks vs. Brooklyn Nets

Dejounte Murray (ankle) – OUT, expected to miss 2 weeks
De’Andre Hunter (hip) – questionable

Trae Young is the lead guard again with Murray out. Hunter can be a tremendous value play if he’s in a position to suit up as he’d likely get the beginning.

Ben Simmons (knee) – available

With Simmons back in, he’ll take some usage away from Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant. That may actually profit each players because it’ll get them more shots overall.

Sacramento Kings vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

De’Aaron Fox (foot) – questionable

If Fox sits, Davion Mitchell can be the lead point guard in Sacramento. Kevin Huerter may additionally get some touches as an initiator within the offense.

Donovan Mitchell (leg) – questionable
Kevin Love (back) – OUT

Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen should dominate within the frontcourt rotation with Love sitting. If Mitchell sits, Darius Garland and Caris LeVert will get more shots. The Cavaliers could be underdogs if Mitchell sits on the betting lines, and that could be a positive play given how they’ve performed when shorthanded this season.
