NBA Injury News

6 p.m. ET Update: LeBron James has been ruled out of Tuesday’s game against the Sacramento Kings due to health and safety protocols.

The New York Knicks will have Derrick Rose, RJ Barrett, Mitchell Robinson, Taj Gibson and Nerlens Noel available for Tuesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Damian Lillard and Nassir Little have officially been ruled out for the Portland Trail Blazers. Gary Trent Jr. will sit out for the Toronto Raptors.


3 p.m. ET Update: Mitchell Robinson is questionable to play Tuesday due to a non-Covid illness. Damian Lillard is doubtful to play due to a lingering abdominal injury.


1 p.m. ET Update: Avery Bradley has been ruled out of Tuesday for the Los Angeles Lakers with a hand injury.


The New York Knicks have listed Derrick Rose, RJ Barrett, Taj Gibson and Nerlens Noel as questionable ahead of their game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Rose has been sidelined for the past three games with an ankle injury, and if he sits out, the Knicks will have just one primary ball handler (Immanuel Quickley) coming off the bench after Kemba Walker was pulled from the starting lineup for Alec Burks.

Gibson has been out for six games with groin soreness and Noel missed the Knicks’ last game as he continues to gut out a knee injury, so they could be shorthanded up front as well. Barrett, who is dealing with a non-Covid illness, is a new addition to the injury report.

On the other side of that matchup, Joe Harris will be sidelined for four to eight weeks after undergoing ankle surgery.

The Los Angeles Lakers have listed LeBron James as questionable ahead of their game against the Sacramento Kings. James appeared to get hit in the midsection in their last game, but assured the media he would be good to go for Tuesday. James has played 43, 49 and 37 minutes since being suspended last week, but the Lakers have just two games on their schedule this week.

Gary Trent Jr. is questionable to play for the Toronto Raptors after missing their last game with a calf injury. Trent has been a reliable scorer for the Raptors averaging 17.3 points per game. Their co-leading scorer, OG Anunoby, is still sidelined with a hip pointer, and will miss his seventh straight game.
