With three games on the schedule, the injury news to monitor for Tuesday is limited.

The Philadelphia 76ers will be without Danny Green Tuesday for their game against the Utah Jazz after he missed practice Monday due to a hamstring injury. Joel Embiid and Matisse Thybulle are still in the league’s health and safety protocols and will not be available to play until Thursday at the earliest.

The Brooklyn Nets will be without Joe Harris who is nursing an ankle injury that he suffered during their game on Sunday. Paul Millsap is out for personal reasons and Nic Claxton remains out indefinitely as he recovers from a non-COVID-19 illness.

The lone injury to watch is Terance Mann, who is dealing with a sprained ankle ahead of the the Los Angeles Clippers’ game against the San Antonio Spurs. Mann hurt his ankle Sunday against the Bulls but played 32 minutes off the bench.
