- Feb 14, 2023, 4:38:07 PM
Injuries are an unfortunate reality of the NBA, and being informed about which players are out and their expected return can be crucial for fans and sports bettors. As five games are set to take place on Tuesday, February 14, it's worth checking out the latest injury report to make informed decisions for your fantasy basketball picks and bets.
Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks
The Celtics are struggling with injuries, with Jayson Tatum (illness), Malcolm Brogdon (Achilles), Robert Williams (ankle), and Grant Williams (elbow) all listed as out. While Brogdon is probable and Tatum is doubtful to play, the Williams' statuses remain questionable. With Tatum likely out, Brogdon and Derrick White will likely have bigger scoring roles, but the Celtics are expected to be heavy underdogs against the Bucks.
Orlando Magic vs. Toronto Raptors
The Raptors' Gary Trent Jr. is currently questionable with a calf injury. If he sits out, Scottie Barnes could see more minutes on the wing, and Malachi Flynn may be promoted to the starting lineup.
Washington Wizards vs. Portland Trail Blazers
Several key players on both teams are listed as injury management cases, including Bradley Beal, Kristaps Porzingis, and Damian Lillard. Kyle Kuzma is unlikely to play, while Jerami Grant is unlikely to play due to a concussion. The Wizards vs. Trail Blazers matchup is up in the air as the teams' lineups remain uncertain.
Golden State Warriors vs. Los Angeles Clippers
Klay Thompson is currently listed as a game-time decision due to injury management, while Kawhi Leonard's status is also uncertain due to the same issue. While Thompson typically sits on the second night of back-to-back sets, Leonard's absence would be significant for the Clippers.
Sacramento Kings vs. Phoenix Suns
Malik Monk is out due to an ankle injury, which means Harrison Barnes and Kevin Huerter will likely have more minutes on the perimeter.
