Daily Fantasy Basketball Injury Report: Wednesday 3/29/17
Wednesday's big slate of NBA action brings a ton of injuries to the table. Let's check out how these injury situations impact tonight's slate.
New York Knicks
Both Derrick Rose and Carmelo Anthony are not listed as tonight's starters in the game notes. There is a chance they are rested, so double-check their status before rosters lock. The New York Knicks and Miami Heat tip off at 7:30 p.m. EST, so we should know more before lock time tonight.
Marc Gasol is still out on Wednesday for the Memphis Grizzlies, and now JaMychal Green is also questionable with a shoulder injury. If he can't play, Memphis will need Zach Randolph to play all the minutes he can handle while Brandan Wright and Deyonta Davis could see some expanded minutes, too.
The Utah Jazz will be without George Hill and Raul Neto tonight, while Gordon Hayward is still questionable. Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack will likely hold down the point guard duties while HIll is out, and if Hayward is out, Rodney Hood and Joe Ingles gain some value on the wing.
The Atlanta Hawks look like they'll have Kent Bazemore back in action on Wednesday, which is good news for their wing depth because Thabo Sefolosha and Mike Dunleavy are still out. With Paul Millsap still out, Taurean Prince and Ersan Ilyasova are still nice value plays.
Sergio Rodriguez will be out for the next week for the Philadelphia 76ers, but we have yet to hear an update on Jahlil Okafor or Gerald Henderson for tonight. If Okafor is out, look for Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long to pick up the slack.
DeMarcus Cousins, New Orleans Pelicans
DeMarcus Cousins is once again questionable for the New Orleans Pelicans. If he can't go, Dante Cunningham will see expanded minutes while Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday will be expected to hoist more shots.
J.J Redick, Los Angeles Clippers
Seth Curry, Dallas Mavericks
This is your almost daily reminder that the Sacramento Kings have been resting certain players without much advanced warning as they tank for draft positioning. Keep an eye on the news wire for late updates on any of Sacramento's scratches.
DeMarre Carroll, Toronto Raptors
DeMarre Carroll went through shootaround on Wednesday morning, and he says he will try to play tonight. Look for him to be back in the Toronto Raptors' starting lineup if he is good to go. This would send P.J. Tucker to the bench.
Solomon Hill, New Orleans Pelicans
Solomon Hill is listed as questionable for the Pelicans tonight, which could make them pretty shorthanded on the wing. There is a chance Cunningham plays a ton of minutes at small forward while Donatas Motiejunas gets into the mix at power forward if Cousins and Hill are both out.
Jonas Jerebko, Boston Celtics
