Thursday’s NBA Injury News

With just five games on Thursday’s NBA schedule, there isn’t much injury news to report as far as key players are concerned.

Goran Dragic, who has missed the Miami Heat’s previous two games, remains out for Thursday’s meeting with the Houston Rockets and will not travel with the team at the start of its seven-game road trip. On the other side of that matchup, John Wall has been listed as probable with an ankle injury. The Rockets are not playing in a back-to-back, so Wall, Victor Oladipo, and Eric Gordon should all be available to suit up together, but Christian Wood will remain sidelined with his ankle injury.

The Orlando Magic have two starters listed as questionable for Thursday’s road matchup with the Golden State Warriors: Cole Anthony and Evan Fournier. Anthony suffered a strained right shoulder on Tuesday, but did not need to undergo an MRI. Fournier missed the Magic’s past two games and 11 games overall this season with back issues.
