Daily Fantasy Basketball Injury Report: Friday 3/24/17
It's been nine full days since the last NBA slate of 10 games or more, and with that comes what could end up as a wild night of injuries this late in the season.
Here are the names that you need to keep an eye on tonight while building your DFS rosters.
John Wall, Washington Wizards
The biggest name to watch heading into Friday evening is John Wall, who missed Washington Wizards shootaround this morning with migraine headaches. If Wall can't go, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, and Markieff Morris will all have to take on some more shots, while Brandon Jennings may be the most popular value play of the night.
Paul Millsap, Atlanta Hawks
Paul Millsap will miss his third straight game on Friday, leaving Dwight Howard and Dennis Schroder as the Atlanta Hawks' main two weapons offensively. Also, look for Ersan Ilyasova to get another start.
Danilo Gallinari, Denver Nuggets
Danilo Gallinari is ready to return on Friday, which throws the Denver Nuggets' forward rotation into some disarray. It's unclear if he will be on a minutes limit, so Gallinari could return to his normal role as the Nuggets' number-two option offensively behind Nikola Jokic.
Jahlil Okafor, Philadephia 76ers
Jahlil Okafor can't seem to shake this recurring knee issue, and he did not participate in this morning's shootaround. If he can't go, Richaun Holmes will once again be asked to play big minutes. Also, look out for news of when Tiago Splitter will be returning from the D-League.
John Henson, Milwaukee Bucks
Andre Iguodala, Golden State Warriors
Andre Iguodala did not play Tuesday, and there has been no word on his status tonight. Ian Clark and Patrick McCaw saw the biggest boost in minutes without Iguodala a few nights ago, and Klay Thompson could also soak up some more shots.
Brandon Ingram, Los Angeles Lakers
The Phoenix Suns might be the most popular team to target tonight with only eight guys healthy. T.J. Warren and Derrick Jones Jr. will join a lengthy list of injuries for the Suns, and with that will come some big minutes and nice value plays.
Devin Booker and Tyler Ulis might play minutes into the 40s again, while Leandro Barbosa and Jared Dudley are both candidates to see extra minutes off the bench. Also, look for Marquese Chriss to get some more run in the frontcourt if they go small or the Suns' other bigs are in foul trouble.
Christiano Felicio, Chicago Bulls
Glenn Robinson III, Indiana Pacers
Jeff Green, Orlando Magic
Jeff Green is a game-time decision against the Detroit Pistons tonight with back spasms. Without Green on Wednesday, Mario Hezonja played well in 23 minutes, and he could see a similar role on Friday if Green is out again.
