We’ve got nine games on Sunday’s NBA slate, headlined by a late game on NBA TV featuring the Mavericks and Bucks. Here’s a look at Sunday’s injury report, along with the relevant fantasy and betting implications.
NBA Injury Report: November 27
No notable day-to-day injuries for either team at this time.
Jaden McDaniels (illness) - OUT
Update - McDaniels has been ruled out for Sunday’s game.
McDaniels has been an excellent producer for the Timberwolves this season, getting a starting spot in the rotation. If he sits, Kyle Anderson would likely take most of his minutes.
Paul George (hamstring) - OUT
Kawhi Leonard (ankle) - OUT
George and Leonard remain out, which means Norman Powell and Nicolas Batum should see more minutes in this one. Reggie Jackson likely gets the biggest boost in terms of pure usage.
Jimmy Butler (knee) - OUT
Tyler Herro (ankle) - probable
Caleb Martin (illness) - probable
Max Strus (shoulder) - probable
Gabe Vincent (knee) - questionable
Duncan Robinson (ankle) - questionable
Update - The Heat will have Herro, Strus and Martin in for this game to support Bam Adebayo and Kyle Lowry, so there’s at least some firepower in this lineup.
Given how many players are questionable, we’ll have to check back in on this team once the final injury report is out to get a better read on fantasy implications.
Clint Capela (dental pain) - OUT
Update - Capela has been ruled out, so Collins and Okongwu are solid fantasy/DFS plays Sunday.
Capela missed the last game due to this issue. John Collins and Onyeka Okongwu would once again see more action if he sat Sunday.
Monte Morris (ankle) - available
Rui Hachimura (ankle) - OUT
Kyle Kuzma (back) - OUT
Update - Morris is in, while Hachimura and Kuzma have been ruled out.
Update - Kuzma has been added to the report and would take away a good scoring option for Washington if he sits.
Jordan Goodwin would see more time if Morris is out, while Daniel Gafford and Kristaps Porzingis would absorb more frontcourt minutes if Hachimura cannot go.
Jayson Tatum (ankle) - OUT
Jaylen Brown becomes the top scoring option for Boston in this game, while Malcolm Brogdon gets elevated as a playmaker in this offense.
Jarrett Allen (back) - OUT
Kevin Love (thumb) - OUT
Caris LeVert (ankle) - OUT
Update - Allen has been ruled out for Sunday’s game.
If Lamar Stephens is also ruled out, Isaac Okoro is a strong value add for Cleveland. If Allen doesn’t play, Evan Mobley gains tremendous value in fantasy/DFS lineups.
Saddiq Bey (ankle) - available
Bojan Bogdanovic (knee, ankle) - OUT
Cory Joseph (illness) - available
Isaiah Stewart (toe) - OUT
Jaden Ivey (knee) - OUT
Update - Ivey, Stewart and Bogdanovic are out while Bey and Joseph are in for the Pistons. The latter two are strong filler options in DFS lineups.
This is another situation where we’ll know more once the final designations come out. For now, Killian Hayes figures to get decent playing time with Ivey and Joseph both dealing with injuries.
Jalen Brunson (quad) - available
Update - Brunson is in for the Knicks.
If Brunson doesn’t play, RJ Barrett would likely get more shots in New York’s offense. Immanuel Quickley would be in line to take over most of the guard minutes for the Knicks in this situation.
Joel Embiid (foot) - OUT
Matisse Thybulle (ankle) - OUT
PJ Tucker (ankle) - available
With Embiid still out, Tobias Harris and Georges Niang should see good volume in this offense. Montrezl Harrell and Paul Reed are strong filler options in DFS lineups as well.
Wendell Carter Jr. (foot) - OUT
Markelle Fultz (toe) - OUT
Jalen Suggs (ankle) - OUT
Update - Everyone is out for the Magic, so Hampton and Bamba are good to be inserted in DFS lineups.
Suggs and Fultz both being out would likely lead to RJ Hampton getting the start at point guard. Carter Jr.’s injury will impact Mo Bamba’s value in DFS lineups.
Reggie Bullock (rest) - OUT
Bullock has been given a rest day, which means Spencer Dinwiddie and Tim Hardaway Jr. might get more perimeter looks in this game.
Pat Connaughton (illness) - available
Update - Connaughton is in for the Bucks.
If Connaughton cannot play, Grayson Allen would be elevated in fantasy/DFS formats.
