Saturday’s NBA Injury News

The Los Angeles Lakers will play their sixth-straight road game in primetime at the TD Garden in Boston, but it’s unclear if Anthony Davis will be in the lineup.

Davis missed the previous game due to a bruised quad, and he and LeBron James (ankle) are presently listed questionable heading into Saturday’s matchup with the Celtics. James has been listed on the injury report for most of the season and has played despite a sore ankle.

The Phoenix Suns will be without Devin Booker for the fourth game in a row who is nursing a hamstring injury. The Suns will also be down Cameron Payne (foot) and Dario Saric (health protocols) on Saturday.

Robert Covington has been upgraded to questionable in advance of Saturday’s game on the road against the Chicago Bulls after missing the past two games with a concussion. The Blazers will not have Derrick Jones Jr. who sprained his foot in their Thursday night loss.

The Miami Heat, who have been dealing with injuries and health protocols all season, are hoping to get Jimmy Butler back in the lineup. With Tyler Herro, Avery Bradley and Andre Iguodala all questionable, and Goran Dragic out, the Heat don’t have much available depth to fall back on in the matchup with the Sacramento Kings.
