NBA Injury News

Kristaps Porzingis, who has missed the past two games with a sore right knee, has been listed as doubtful ahead of Tuesday night’s game against the Miami Heat. Maxi Kleber has been starting with Porzingis unavailable, but he is listed as questionable with a sore Achilles.

On the other side of that matchup, Andre Iguodala is listed questionable for tonight’s game. Iguodala missed the end the Heat game Sunday due to a sore left hip and played just 16 total minutes. The Heat will remain without Tyler Herro and Victor Oladipo, creating more minutes for Gabe Vincent or Max Strus in the second unit.

Devonte’ Graham and Cody Martin have been ruled out of Tuesday’s game against the Detroit Pistons. Graham recently missed one leg of a back-to-back set with a sore knee while Martin left their last game early after suffering a sprained ankle.

The Sacramento Kings announced that Tyrese Haliburton has been ruled out of Tuesday’s game after he tweaked his left knee over the weekend. Haliburton was scheduled to have an MRI Monday, but there has been no update on the results or word on how long he will be sidelined.

Harrison Barnes is doubtful with an adductor injury that has kept him sidelined for the past three games. Chimezie Metu is questionable after falling hard on his back and leaving the Kings’ game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday.
