NBA Injury News

1 p.m. ET Update: Kevin Durant, Patty Mills, Kevin Durant and Nic Claxton are all out for the Brooklyn Nets.


The Memphis Grizzlies hope to have Steven Adams back in the lineup as they push for their 11th straight win. Adams was questionable to return to the floor on Tuesday but ultimately sat out.

The Milwaukee Bucks likely won’t have Jrue Holiday in the lineup when they face the Golden State Warriors. Holiday is dealing with a sore ankle that has sidelined him for three games.

Will Barton is listed as probable after he sat out the Denver Nuggets’ most recent game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Barton cleared health and safety protocols but is dealing with a sore toe.
