We’ve got a few more games added to the slate with six on a Thursday night. Normally, we’d have a short three-game slate, so a few more lineups to go over. There’s a decent amount of injury news to follow along with the Brooklyn Nets, Denver Nuggets and Dallas Mavericks. We’ll be going over injury reports and keeping an eye out for lineups later on in the evening.

Let’s take a look at lineups for Thursday night.
