NBA Injury News

Monday’s injury news is sparse, with the only notable new coming from the late game between the Trail Blazers and Nuggets.

Will Barton remains out in advance of Game 2 on Monday as he continues to deal with a strained hamstring. He’s been sidelined for the past month with the injury and had been targeting a return sometime during the Nuggets’ first-round series. When Barton is cleared to play, he’ll almost certainly be on some sort of limit initially.
