NBA Injury News

6:30 p.m. ET Update: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been ruled out Monday due to an ankle injury. Tobias Harris is unlikely to suit up with sore left hip. Alex Caruso is sidelined with a left wrist contusion.


The Boston Celtics have listed Jaylen Brown as probable for Monday’s game against the Houston Rockets. Brown has been sidelined for eight games with a strained hamstring. Robert Williams is also listed as probable after missing three games with left knee tendinopathy.

Kevin Durant, who sat out Friday with shoulder soreness, is no longer listed on the Brooklyn Nets’ injury report and will play Monday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is questionable to suit up Monday against the Atlanta Hawks as he deals with a right ankle sprain. SGA has played every game so far this season and is logging nearly 35 minutes per game for the Thunder, and his absence would give rookie Josh Giddey a big usage boost.

Tobias Harris is questionable to play Monday against the Sacramento Kings due to left hip soreness. Harris recently returned to the lineup for the Philadelphia 76ers after sitting out due to health and safety protocols and the Sixers are still missing Danny Green and Joel Embiid.

Cole Anthony is questionable to play against the Milwaukee Bucks due to a right ankle sprain. Anthony missed his first game of the season Saturday, also against the Bucks, with the injury.

Devonte’ Graham, who has missed the past two game for the New Orleans Pelicans, is questionable to suit up Monday as he continues to deal with a sore left foot.

Dillon Brooks is doubtful to play against the Utah Jazz as he nurses a sore right hamstring. Brooks missed Saturday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves with the same injury after missing the start of the season recovering from a hand injury.
