Dec 7, 2012 NBA Injury Report
It seems like the combined injury list is working out pretty well, so I’m going to stick with this format for awhile. Don’t forget that you can check the @FantasyNBADaily Twitter Feed on the homepage for injury updates throughout the day. Posted 8:30 AM EST:
James Harden (HOU) – Harden suffered a minor toe injury Wednesday. Give it a check before tipoff just to make sure he’s a go.
Chandler Parsons (HOU) – Still dealing with a shoulder injury and sat out the contact portion of practice. He’s probable for tonight, but check it closer to tipoff.
Omer Asik (HOU) – Asik is dealing with the flu, be careful using him tonight.
Chris Kaman (DAL) – Suffered a left ankle sprain late in Thursday’s game. No word on the severity or how much time he’ll miss. Brandan Wright would be a good short term pickup if Kaman misses time.
P.J. Tucker (PHO) – Sprained MCL Thursday night.
Raymond Felton (NYK) - Aggravated his already sore left thumb last night. Could eventually miss a game to let it heal, be careful using him.
Al Jefferson (UTA) – Suffered a back injury in his last game. Check his status closer to tipoff just to make sure he’s playing tonight. GTD.
