Today’s NBA Injury Report
If you are interested in knowing the injuries of some of the top players in the NBA, you can check out today’s injury report and find out what your team has to deal with. Injuries happen in all sports, and some teams have more healthy players than others. The NBA Injury Report lists players by their first and last name and the position they play in, including guard, forward, and center.
Golden State Warriors
The Golden State Warriors today’s injury report features several players with questionable status. In addition to Klay Thompson, who is out for the game against the Kings, Andre Iguodala is also a questionable player. Otto Porter Jr., who has played through a number of injuries this season, is also questionable. The Warriors have been extra cautious with the return of several veterans.
The Warriors are still without Andre Iguodala, who suffered a left cervical disc injury against the Nuggets in Game 2. Iguodala has been suffering from neck spasms for several weeks, and he has not played since. Depending on his recovery time, he could miss the rest of this series and possibly the start of the next one as well.
Another big name on the Warriors’ injury report is guard James Wiseman, who has not played since April. The Warriors are trying to get Wiseman back as quickly as possible, and it’s unclear if he’ll be available in the Summer League.
The Boston Celtics are expected to go without two of their best players for at least the first half of the season. Despite that, the team did sign veteran big man Blake Griffin, who will bridge the gap until Timelord returns. Also, having Kornet back should relieve some of the burden on Al Horford. Malcolm Brogdon will step in as the reserve point guard.
The Boston Celtics are one win away from their first NBA Finals appearance since 2010. Marcus Smart and Robert Williams III should be available for Game 6. The Miami Heat are expected to be without Tyler Herro, who has been questionable all playoffs. However, the rest of the team is expected to play.
In the Eastern conference finals, Robert Williams III and Marcus Smart remain questionable. Both players appeared to have limitations in the Game 7 contest. Marcus Smart, on the other hand, only played 15 minutes. With those three players available, the Celtics should be fully healthy in the Finals.
The Philadelphia 76ers are gearing up to face the Boston Celtics on Tuesday at TD Garden, and they’re putting the final touches on their roster. However, the Sixers have had to cut three players from their roster: Isaiah Joe, Trevelin Queen, and Charles Bassey. All three have since found new homes with the Indiana Pacers and Oklahoma City Thunder.
Joel Embiid was fined by the NBA on Tuesday for violating an injury reporting rule, and he’s listed as “questionable” for Game 4. In addition, Isaiah Joe suffered a right ankle sprain. While these injuries don’t indicate a player’s readiness to play, they do mean they shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Joel Embiid was originally listed as out for Friday’s game after clearing the NBA’s concussion protocol. However, he participated in the shootaround and was upgraded to “doubtful” about an hour later. Doc Rivers said in his pregame press conference that Embiid’s status would be determined once he’d had a chance to warm up on the floor.
