- The NBA Injury Report details the slate's key injuries and their betting and DFS impact.
- We're focusing on the Utah Jazz' multiple injuries, as well as the status of Celtics forward Jayson Tatum.
Monday’s NBA slate features six games with several injuries and questionable players. We’ll analyze a couple:
- Oklahoma City Thunder at Utah Jazz: 9 p.m. ET
- Boston Celtics at Los Angeles Clippers: 10:30 p.m. ET on NBA TV
Injuries: Ricky Rubio (hip) and Raul Neto (hamstring) are out. Dante Exum (ankle) will play. Ekpe Udoh (back) is probable.
Injury background: Rubio will sit for the second straight game due to a tight left hip.
Neto is dealing with a tight hamstring and will be unavailable for the sixth straight game.
Exum hasn’t played since January 5th due to a sprained ankle. He recently participated in a practice with the G-League team.
Ekpe Udoh was unavailable one of the last two games due to back spasms.
Tonight’s impact: The Jazz have played seven games without both Rubio and Neto. Exum missed every one due to injury, and the Jazz went 6-1 in those contests.
