NBA Injury News

2 p.m. ET Update: Jamal Murray has been ruled out Sunday due to a sore knee and will sit for the fourth game in a row. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum have been cleared to play.

OG Anunoby will sit Sunday due to rest and Fred VanVleet will miss his fourth straight game due to a strained hip. Kyle Lowry as listed as questionable after missing seven of the past eight games with a foot ailment.


12 p.m. ET Update: Trae Young and Danilo Gallinari have been ruled out Sunday against the Charlotte Hornets. The Hawks will also be without John Collins, De’Andre Hunter, Cam Reddish and Tony Snell, leaving the team with 10 available players.


Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed doubtful prior to the Milwaukee Bucks’ game against the Orlando Magic Sunday as he continues to nurse a sore knee. Brook Lopez, Jrue Holiday, Khris Middleton, and Donte DiVincenzo — all of whom missed Friday’s game with various injuries — are listed as probable Sunday.

The Los Angeles Clippers will be without Kawhi Leonard, who is getting a rest day, but Paul George will return to the lineup after resting the last game.

The Boston Celtics have listed Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Denver Nuggets. This would obviously be a tough blow to the Celtics if both had to miss time as the team remains without Evan Fournier due to health protocols.

Jamal Murray is listed questionable in advance of Sunday’s contest as he continues to deal with a sore knee. He’s missed the past three games with the injury and it’s been Facu Campazzo who’s started the last two in his place.

The Atlanta Hawks have listed two players questionable for Sunday: Young with a calf contusion and Danilo Gallinari with a foot injury.
