Sunday’s NBA Injury News

12 p.m. ET Update: The Raptors will be without Siakam and Kyle Lowry on Sunday. Siakam is dealing with left knee swelling and Lowry will miss his second game in a row with a toe infection.


The Washington Wizards are on track to play their first game in nearly two weeks after dealing with multiple postponements in the month of January. Rui Hachimura, Davis Bertans, Deni Avdija, Ish Smith, Troy Brown Jr., and Moe Wagner are all still out due to health and safety protocols.

The Wizards’ star point guard, Russell Westbrook, is questionable for their game against the San Antonio Spurs as he continues to deal with a sore left quad.

Atlanta Hawks point guard, Trae Young, is also questionable Sunday. Young hasn’t missed a game this season, but has been dealing with back spasms.

Kyle Lowry’s status is in up in the air — he missed the Toronto Raptors’ last game with a toe infection.
