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