NBA injury news

6:30 p.m. ET Update: Anthony Davis has been sent off. LeBron James was cleared to play on Wednesday. Josh Richardson and Robert Williams have been excluded due to illnesses unrelated to Covid.


5 p.m. ET Update: LeBron James has been listed as questionable due to his persistent abdominal injury, but it’s likely a formality. Anthony Davis is still questionable with flu-like symptoms.

The Chicago Bulls have outscored Alex Caruso, Javonte Green and Nikola Vucevic to become active for tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets. Vucevic will play his first game in two weeks.


With 26 teams playing the day before Thanksgiving, there’s a lot to keep in mind on the injury front.

The Los Angeles Lakers play the second straight game against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday and are expected to have LeBron James back in the lineup after his one game suspension. Anthony Davis also deserves to be watched ahead of this game. Davis was questionable about playing on Tuesday due to an illness unrelated to Covid and it could be a potential place for him to rest.

The Philadelphia 76ers ranked Seth Curry (Back), Danny Green (Hamstring) and Tobias Harris (Hip) as questionable ahead of their game against the Golden State Warriors. All three missed the Sixers’ last game against the Sacramento Kings on Monday and Green was sidelined for a straight with a tight hamstring.

Joel Embiid is making progress as he returns from Covid, but he’s still ruled out for this game. On the other hand, the Warriors will be without Andre Iguodala for the third game in a row as he suffers from a sore knee.

The Chicago Bulls have classified Nicola Vucevic and Alex Caruso as questionable for their game against the Houston Rockets. Vucevic has not played for two weeks since testing positive for Covid and is still ramping up his conditioning. Caruso was absent on Monday with a sprained wrist, but was able to see the ground tonight.

Jaylen Brown is questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets. Brown returned to the field after missing the previous eight games with a hamstring injury.

OG Anunoby, who has missed the last three games with a hip injury, is listed as questionable against the Memphis Grizzlies. On the other side of this game, Dillon Brooks is questionable with a hamstring injury. Brooks missed the first 10 games of the season with a hand injury and missed the last two with hamstrings.
