NBA injury report, January 14: Updates for Giannis Antetokounmpo, Damian Lillard, Tobias Harris, more


We’ve got seven games on Saturday’s NBA slate, setting out early with a nationally televised contest on ABC. Here’s a have a look at the day’s injury report, together with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.

NBA Injury Report: January 14

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Miami Heat

Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) – questionable
Grayson Allen (ankle) – available

Antetokounmpo is the large name here, and we expect him to play after sitting Thursday’s game. Allen is a pleasant DFS play with Khris Middleton still sidelined.

Tyler Herro (Achilles) – questionable
Kyle Lowry (knee) – OUT

Lowry stays out, elevating Gabe Vincent in fantasy/DFS lineups. If Herro doesn’t play, Max Strus is the subsequent man up for Miami.

Boston Celtics vs. Charlotte Hornets

Malcolm Brogdon (personal) – questionable

If Brogdon doesn’t play, Marcus Smart and Derrick White can be the first guards for Boston.

Gordon Hayward (hamstring) – doubtful

With Hayward out, Jalen McDaniels continues to be an important value play in DFS lineups.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Indiana Pacers

Dillon Brooks (ankle) – questionable
Brandon Clarke (hip) – questionable
John Konchar (illlness) – OUT

Desmond Bane can be a pleasant play with Konchar out and Brooks potentially also out. If Clarke plays, Steven Adams will see a discount in minutes.

Myles Turner (back) – TBD

Turner didn’t play Friday, so we’ll see how the Pacers approach the large man here.

Atlanta Hawks vs. Toronto Raptors

No notable day-to-day injuries for either team presently.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Anthony Edwards (hip) – TBD
Kyle Anderson (illness) – TBD

Each guys played Friday, so we’ll see if they’re able to pull through on the second night of a back-to-back set.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Utah Jazz

Tobias Harris (knee) – questionable

If Harris is out, which means more shots and minutes for James Harden, Tyrese Maxey and possibly even Montrezl Harrell.

Collin Sexton (injury management) – TBD
Mike Conley (injury management) – TBD

Sexton just got here back from a hamstring injury. The Jazz likely don’t push him here. Conley didn’t play Friday, so he could go Saturday.

Dallas Mavericks vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Christian Wood (ankle) – questionable

If Wood can’t go, peripheral players like Tim Hardaway Jr., Spencer Dinwiddie and Reggie Bullock gain some value.

Damian Lillard (ankle) – questionable

Lillard played Thursday, so he’s prone to go here as well. If he doesn’t play, Shaedon Sharpe and Anfernee Simons gain some value in DFS formats.
