NBA Injury News

Grayson Allen has been upgraded to questionable in advance of Wednesday’s Spurs-Grizzlies play-in game. He’s missed the past seven games with a sore abdominal.

Allen will more than likely come off the bench if he’s cleared to play Wednesday given the return of Jaren Jackson Jr., and will compete with minutes on the wing and backcourt with Tyus Jones, De’Anthony Melton, and Desmond Bane.

Trey Lyles is listed as questionable with a right ankle sprain head of tonight’s game. He hasn’t play since March, but with the season on the line, there may not be another opportunity for him to play again this season.

All eyes will be on LeBron James’ ankle for tonight’s game against the Golden State Warriors after he appeared to tweak it in the regular season finale Sunday. According to Lakers head coach Frank Vogel, James is “good to go” for Wednesday’s game. James practiced in full on Tuesday and was listed as probable on the most recent injury report.

Anthony Davis was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, but is also expected to suit up in a virtual must-win for the Lakers.
