Daily Fantasy Basketball Injury Report: Tuesday 12/27/16
After a couple days packed with NBA action, Tuesday brings us just a four-game slate. However, there are a number of teams dealing with injuries to important players that will need to be addressed before rosters are constructed.
Here are the ones that could impact your DFS NBA research the most before tip-off.
Goran Dragic is the first domino to fall, as he is questionable with back spasms. If he is out, Tyler Johnson and Josh Richardson will likely be handling the ball the entire game. The good news is both Rodney McGruder and Wayne Ellington are going to warm up with the intention of playing.
That could muddy the waters a bit, but we'll wait to see Dragic's status before going down that rabbit hole.
Patrick Beverley, Houston Rockets
Patrick Beverley is also questionable after leaving Monday's game early with a thigh bruise. They were blowing out the Phoenix Suns when he left, so the early exit might just be precautionary, but the Houston Rockets didn't hold a shootaround, so it will come down to a game-time decision.
Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks
Dirk Nowitzki once again played in the first half and sat during the second half on Monday, but we have yet to hear if he is going to play on Tuesday. Either way, he won't play many minutes even if he does, so look for Dwight Powell and Harrison Barnes to get a boost if he sits.
