Daily Fantasy Basketball Injury Report: Tuesday 4/4/17
After basically having the night off from DFS action on Monday, the NBA comes back with an 11-game slate that's full of injury news to go with it. Here are the biggest ones you need to be watching before the first games start.
The Memphis Grizzlies injury report includes three starting players who are questionable. Marc Gasol is the biggest name on the list and if he and JaMychal Green don't play, Zach Randolph and Brandan Wright both get a nice boost in value.
Jameer Nelson is out again tonight, as is Will Barton for the Denver Nuggets. This should lead to Emmanuel Mudiay getting some run off the bench and potentially Jamal Murray getting another start. Look for Danilo Gallinari to get some extended run with Barton out, as well.
Over the weekend, Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said he was hopeful Seth Curry would play on Tuesday, but we have yet to hear another update on his status. Also up in the air is Dirk Nowitzki, who is questionable with a sore achilles. Don't be surprised if the Mavs play it safe with their veteran since they have been eliminated from the playoffs already.
San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs rested several players on Sunday and there could be more of that tonight, so keep your eyes on that situation. As for known injuries, Danny Green will not play tonight with his nagging quad injury, but we have yet to hear anything on LaMarcus Aldridge, who also sat out Sunday.
Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans
Carmelo Anthony, New York Knicks
George Hill, Utah Jazz
George Hill, Raul Neto and Derrick Favors will all be out again for the Utah Jazz. Dante Exum and Shelvin Mack will still split the point guard duties, while Joe Ingles and Boris Diaw gain some run without Favors.
Victor Oladipo, Okkahoma City Thunder
P.J. Tucker, Toronto Raptors
Kyle Korver, Cleveland Cavaliers
Malcolm Brogdon, Milwaukee Bucks
Isaiah Whitehead, Brooklyn Nets
Jeff Green, Orlando Magic
Jeff Green is also out again for the Orlando Magic. Aaron Gordon seems to gain a little bit of run without Green while Mario Hezonja should see minutes in the 20s with Green out for a seventh straight game.
