Fantasy Basketball Daily Injury Report for Thursday, December 13
DeShawn Stevenson (ATL) – The Hawks rested Stevenson last night, no injury reported. He won’t be playing any back to backs this season if the Hawks can help it.
Brook Lopez (BKN) – Missed Wednesday with a foot injury. He should be good to go for Friday, but check it gametime just to be sure.
Omri Casspi (CLE) – Missed Wednesday with a stomach illness.
Kirk Hinrich (CHI) – Missed Wednesday with a knee injury. Nate Robinson got the start.
Jae Crowder (DAL) – Missed Wednesday with the flu.
Lance Stephenson (IND) – Sprained an ankle last night and had a walking boot on. Not looking good for his next game. Gerald Green might move back into the starting lineup.
Malcolm Lee (MIN) – Suffered a hyperextended knee. He’s not much of a fantasy asset and probably the most important thing you can take away from this is that Alexey Shved and JJ Barea could see more minutes.
Josh Howard (MIN) – Out Wednesday with the flu.
J.R. Smith (NYK) – Smith suffered a minor back injury in his last game and is likely a gametime decision tonight.
Royal Ivey (PHI) – Missed Wednesday with strep throat. Not a big deal for fantasy owners with regard to Ivey, but keep an eye and make sure this doesn’t make it’s way through the locker room to other members of the Sixers.
Kyle Lowry (TOR) – Missed Wednesday with a triceps injury and could be sidelined for 10 days. Jose Calderon got the start and makes a great short term waiver wire add.
Andrea Bargnani (TOR) – Torn elbow ligament, out 1-2 months. Tough break for Bargs owners. Ed Davis should move into the starting lineup and is a geat waiver wire pickup.
LeBron James (MIA) – Suffered a minor shoulder injury, so check his next gametime status just to be safe.
Dwyane Wade (MIA) – Took an elbow to the head, but there doesn’t seem to be any concussion injury. He should be fine for his next game.
Larry Sanders (MIL) – Missed Wednesday with the flu.
Mike Dunleavy (MIL) – Out Wednesday with a sore knee.
Ekpe Udoh (MIL) – Missed Wednesday with a wrist injury.
Damian Lillard (POR) – Gametime decision tonight with a sore ankle.
Nicolas Batum (POR) – Gametime decision tonight with a back injury.
Wesley Matthews (POR) – Gametime decision tonight with a hip injury.
Jason Thompson (SAC) – Thompson lost a tooth last night, but should be fine going forward.
Marcus Thornton (SAC) – Thornton was out Wednesday for personal reasons. His status for Friday is unclear.
DeMarcus Cousins (SAC) – Served his one game suspension last night.
